Each and every movie Johnny Depp is in is worth watching. In 90% of them if the academy weren't slipping on their drool or finding the stuipedest movie to award he'd have won ages ago not to mention he'd have won more than once. This is why I cannot stand to watch the awards anymore, DiCapprio also deserves more than one, Thank You.
Depp wouldn't be my first choice - I don't feel that he's demonstrated quite the emotional range of some of his contemporaries - but he's quite good all the same and I do think that he's put in some award-worthy performances. I was most impressed with him in Donnie Brasco myself.
Whoa seeing all these good actors makes me think jow the hell hae any of them not got an oscar. Rowan atkinson and kevin bacon should be on this list too
Johnny depp is my favourite hero. I liked his character Captain Jack Sparrow. He is the best actor and human being in the world.
2 Rowan Atkinson
Rowan Sebastian Atkinson, is an English actor, comedian, and screenwriter best known for his work on the sitcoms Blackadder and Mr.Bean
Yeah, he just walks around making strange noises in the back of his throat and bumping into things. If they were giving out oscars for being a hapless idiot, this guy would have won already
Best comedy actor ever, mr bean is such an icon.
I've got nothing against Rowan Atkinson but I don't think that the people who voted him as one of the top ten most deserving Oscar winners quite understand the criteria for which Oscars are supposed to be awarded. : )
3 Edward Norton
Edward Harrison Norton is an American actor, filmmaker and activist. He has been nominated for three Academy Awards for his work in the films Primal Fear, American History X and Birdman.
Primal Fear and American History X were his to win. Yet somehow, he was denied. Unfortunately I feel that his best work is behind him at this point.
Definitely deserved one for American history x or primal fear.
Definitely deserves an oscar for Fight Club, Primal Fear, American History X or the 25th Hour
4 Peter O'Toole
Peter James O'Toole was a British stage and film actor of Irish descent. He attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and began working in the theatre, gaining recognition as a Shakespearean actor at the Bristol Old Vic and with the English Stage Company before making his film debut in 1959.
HELLO!? Show some respect to the guy! Lawrence of Arabia, The Lion in Winter, Venus, amazing movies, deserved an Oscar more than almost anyone in the world!

Deserved a win for Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf among the many nominations he received.
This guy was the best role model in the world in his time.

He is well known for comedic roles in films such as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask , Dumb and Dumber, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, The Cable Guy, Liar Liar, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, ...read more.
The only thing I think he should have been nominated for was The Truman Show. Being that this was 1998 and Billy Bob Thornton was in A Simple Plan that year I don't think that Carrey should have won, but I do think that he at least deserved the nomination.
Funny Times come on
He at least deserved a nomination for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004)

22 Djimon Hounsou

I can't believe he made this list. Yes he made a fair few average films, a lot actually, but surely Spartacus would have been enough.
Kirk made a living as the bad guy. His character's lack of likeability hurts him
