The 24 actors who have gotten the most Oscar nominations without winning one

  • The Oscars have repeatedly nominated and neglected numerous actors.
  • Glenn Close lost for the eighth time on Sunday after being nominated for her role in “Hillbilly Elegy.”
  • Here are 24 actors, including Close, who have been nominated at least four times without winning.
  • Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Each year, deserving performances lose out in the Oscars’ best acting categories. But there are a handful of great actors that the Academy has repeatedly nominated and neglected.

This year, Glenn Close was nominated for the eighth time for her supporting role in Netflix’s “Hillbilly Elegy.” She lost again during the Oscars ceremony on Sunday to “Minari” star Yuh-Jung Youn, tying with Peter O’Toole as the actor with the most Oscar nominations without a win (though O’Toole won an honorary Oscar).

Close was also nominated two years ago in the lead actress category for “The Wife” and was the perceived frontrunner – until she lost to Olivia Colman.

Joaquin Phoenix and Brad Pitt turned their luck around last year. They both scored their first acting wins on their fourth nomination, Phoenix for lead actor for “Joker” and Pitt for supporting actor for “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.”

Others haven’t been so lucky.

All 92 Oscar best-picture winners, ranked from worst to best by movie critics

parasite
“Parasite”

  • The 93rd Oscars ceremony is Sunday.
  • 92 movies have won the Oscar for best picture in the history of the Academy Awards.
  • We ranked them all based on how well they fared with critics, including last year’s winner “Parasite.”
  • See more stories on Insider’s business page.

It’s been a turbulent year for the movie business, but the show must go on.

The 93rd Oscars ceremony is Sunday after being pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic. And the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences also bent the rules a bit for this year’s Oscars.

Movies that debuted on streaming services qualified as long as they had a planned theatrical release (a movie usually has to have a qualifying theatrical run). And movies released between January 1, 2020 and February 28, 2021 qualified (it’s usually only the calendar year).

The delay meant that last year’s best picture winner, “Parasite,” was the reigning champion for a bit longer. It broke barriers as the first international feature to win the Oscars’ top prize.

This year’s frontrunner is “Nomadland,” directed by Chloé Zhao and starring Frances McDormand. Seven other films are also competing for cinema’s most prestigious award, including Netflix’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7” and “Mank.”

Business Insider ranked all 92 best picture winners – from the first winner, “Wings,” in 1927 to “Parasite” – based on their critic score on the reviews-aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.

In the case of ties, we broke them based on their audience scores on the site. (And if those were the same, the film with more critic reviews came out on top.)
