Actors that Didn't Win the Oscar But Should Have


The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Robert Mitchum - The Night of the Hunter

One of the scariest performance's I've ever seen!

82Heath Ledger - The Dark Knight

I watch this movie every time it's on. The depth of emotion that Heath conveys with his face and the tone of his voice and few words is amazing and touching. You can feel his anguish. His understated but deeply moving portrayal was brilliant.. Though Phillip Seymour Hoffman was also very good in Capote, I think his skillful imitation of Capote still couldn't touch the tortured and brooding soul that Heath infused into the character of Ennis DelMar..

83Michael Clarke Duncan - The Green Mile
84Bradley Cooper - Silver Linings Playbook
85Jamie Lee Curtis - Halloween

I'm sorry. I didn't want put Jamie Lee Curtis in this list, because this is just male perfomances and I didn't see the another list of the actresses perfomances that doesn't go from the oscars. So, if anyone can remove that recommended from this list I will be more greatful.

86Donald Pleasence - Halloween
87Sylvester Stallone - Creed
88Glenn Close - Fatal Attraction
89Kate Winslet - Sense and Sensibility
90Ellen Burstyn - Requiem for a Dream
91Richard Burton - Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
92Judi Dench - Mrs. Brown
93Jack Lemmon - Some Like It Hot
94Shirley MacLaine - The Apartment
95Anne Bancroft - The Graduate
96Peter O'Toole - The Lion in Winter
97Susan Sarandon - Lorenzo's Oil
98Elijah Wood - The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Elijah Wood can express more with his eyes alone, than most actors can with their entire person!

Definitely ;) ) nothing beats Lord of the Rings except a good hamburger. Amen.

99Peter Sellers - Dr. Strangelove
100Cuba Gooding Jr. - Boyz n the Hood
