Edward G. Robinson should have had nominations for THE WHOLE TOWN'S TALKING, DOUBLE INDEMNITY and KEY LARGO and should have won for either TOWN'S or INDEMNITY. The fact that he was never nominated remains a black stain on the history of the Academy.

Likewise, it's a crime than Deborah Kerr, Robert Mitchum, Peter O'Toole, Cary Grant, Judy Garland, to name just a few, never took home a competitive oscar.

Still waiting for Glenn Close, Ralph Fiennes and Liam Neeson to win theirs, though in Close's case, I fear she will have to settle for an Honorary one. (She was considered a shoo-in for THE WIFE, but lost to Olivia Coleman for THE FAVOURITE).
