Fice Amazing Celebrities Who Deserve an Oscar

There are a lot of celebrities who do a remarkable job portraying their characters. Some of them have portrayed a lot of characters and become a chameleon morphing from one role to another. Others are known for that one character people seem to never forget, but no matter how great an actor is, it seems like having an Academy Award is the defining achievement that makes them an incredible actor. Being nominated for an Oscar award is already major, but winning it is difficult. A perfect example is Leonardo DiCaprio, who only won his first Oscar in 2016 after six nominations prior. For other actors, it seems like their luck hasn’t come yet, here are some of them:

1. Amy Adams


First off is Amy Adams, who is known for her role in Catch Me If You Can alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, the lead in Enchanted, and been part of ensemble casts in The FighterAmerican Hustle and Man of Steel as Lois Lane. She has been nominated for not just one but five times by the Academy. Despite having six BAFTA Awards and two Golden Globes, she hasn’t been able to get the Oscar. Perhaps like Leo, the sixth time will be the charm.

2. Gary Oldman

He is not one of the commercial actors that you normally see in mainstream films. Gary Oldman is considered to be one of the greatest character actors ever in film history. He is one of the few actors who make films for the sake of art and not just for a paycheck. Unfortunately, the Oscars have not thought so, denying him a statue for Best Actor when he was nominated for his role in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. The man has been in several movies, with his most recognition coming from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy, Red Riding Hood and as Sirius Black in the phenomenal Harry Potter franchise.

3. Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp has indeed set standards when it comes to portraying notable roles and always managing to “slay” every single one of them. When you say the name Johnny Depp, you immediately think of Capt. Jack Sparrow, who is probably the most famous pirate that comes to mind. He has a plethora of awesome movie characters like the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, Mr. Wonka from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, as well as the title characters in the Lone Ranger, and Edward Scissorhands. He can literally play any character.

Unfortunately, he hasn’t won the hearts of the Academy despite his nominations for his roles in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black PearlSweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and Finding Neverland alongside Kate Winslet. He’s in fact currently filming another major role as Gellert Grindelwald in the sequel to the Harry Potter Spin-off, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them with the academy award-winning best actor, Eddie Redmayne.

However, in an interview with BBC, Depp said:

“I don’t want to win those things ever, you know, I don’t want to have to talk. The idea of winning means that you’re in competition with someone and I’m not in competition with anybody. They gave me one of those things, like a nomination, two or three times. A nomination is plenty.”

4. Helena Bonham Carter

Speaking of Johnny Depp, this next actress has worked with him several times. In movies like Alice in Wonderland and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Depp and Carter have starred and given stellar performances in incredible movies. Helena Bonham Carter is normally attracted to odd and weird characters but always manages to pull it off. Just like her fellow Harry Potter Alum Gary Oldman, she is also one of those actors are not very well-known. But when you see them in films, you will realize they really do deserve an Oscar.

5. Tom Cruise


Tom Cruise may be THE A-lister in Hollywood but just like other incredible actors, the Academy hasn’t awarded him yet despite three nominations. Who doesn’t know a Tom Cruise movie? Top Gun, Edge of Tomorrow, Jerry Maguire and The Mission Impossible series, which he also produces. Some analysts say he’s too mainstream. Then again, a lot of non-mainstream actors on this list haven’t taken home the gold either. But who knows, maybe in the next few years he will finally have his.
