Name some of the most storied actors and actresses who have inexplicably never won an acting Oscar, despite multiple nominations. A few of their Oscar-nominated roles are provided as hints for each answer.
This isn't a comprehensive list, nor is it simply a numbers game. The answers were chosen based on a combination of name recognition and the egregious nature of certain performances failing to score them an Oscar.
Also... some of these might be surprising. But... inexplicable? Wouldn't the explanation (rendering them quite explicable) be that there were other performances from other actors that were judged superior in the years they were nominated?
