Oscar-Nomated Stars Whose Best Performance(s) were Not Nominated

Lillian Gish was Oscar nominated for Duel in the Sun, and she was very good in that. But her performances in Orphans of the Storm and The Scarlet Letter predated the Academy and her lovely swan song The Whales of August was overlooked (although luckily Ann Sothern was nominated)

My favorite of her's is Broken Blossoms. Such a beautiful film (especially for 1919).

Lionel Barrymore for A Free Soul (Which I admit that I have never seen!)

Should have been nominated for It’s a Wonderful Life and Key Largo,  and maybe You Can’t Take It With You.

It’s also a goofy movie, but I love his campy, over-the-top, not to mention creepy, performance in the TCM Halloween staple The Devil Doll.

I can't disagree too much here, but I thought both LIONEL and JOHN deserved nominations and statuettes for '32's RASPUTIN AND THE EMPRESS.  And perhaps too, a nod in ETHEL'S direction.  ;)

Inspired by Bogie56's list, here are some of my own personal favorite non-nominated leading performances. Please note a good number of these ended being winners or nominees in the supporting category for their performance. If a year isn't listed, my favorite performer was at least one of the nominees that year. I did this pretty randomly, though. It's entirely possible I left out a year. If I figure that I did, I'll edit the post. I stopped with 1994.

Rewatching Brief Encounter just now, and I’d have to say Trevor Howard.

 

Also, does anyone know why Celia Jonson was nominated for the movie in 1947, despite the film being released in 1945?

Brief Encounter was released in the USA in 1946 and thus qualified for the 1946 Oscars.

Note that most websites use the year of the Oscar ceremony as the year for the Oscars.    E.g. Films released in 1946 are listed as 1947 Oscars nominations.

Thus a  Google search of Best Actress nominations 1947 shows all the actresses that were in films released in the USA in 1946 (with Olivia De Havilland winning for To Each His Own).

I really dislike that and it has fooled a lot of folks.

The Oscars are really a Los Angeles Film Festival and the qualifications are based on when films are shown there and not nationwide.  Hence you get Casablanca winning the Oscar in 1943 when it was released in New York in 1942.  Lots of British films are nominated a year or so after they were released in the UK based on their release in Los Angeles.

Kathy Bates has no shortage of nominations, and of course she won Best Actress for her role in the Stephen King adaptation Misery.  But one of her absolute best performances was in another King adaptation, Dolores Claiborne (1995).  For reasons that I'll never understand, that film was completely overlooked by the Academy and the general public at the time.  Perhaps it didn't catch on with King fans because it's not a horror film, but that didn't stop the book from being the #1 best-selling novel of 1992.  Bates is excellent as a woman accused of killing her employer, which dredges up old resentments and rumors from her past.  As the film alternates between flashbacks and the present day, she must play her character at two different ages and from two different mindsets (that of a younger woman discovering terrible family secrets and that of an older woman made bitter and cynical over time).  Cases could be made that Jennifer Jason Leigh, David Strathairn, Christopher Plummer, and (the as yet not nominated) Judy Parfitt were also deserving of Oscar nods for this same film.

I find that I differ most with the Academy's choices when it comes to supporting awards.  Perhaps that is because there are so many gems that the studios were not pushing on voters or in some cases (IMO) in the wrong category.  And of course there were no Oscars for supporting roles before 1936.

Well confining myself to actors who were actually nominated (as opposed to the many who never were) and those who were actually nominated for their best performance but didn't win:

Lillian Gish, nominated for Duel in the Sun, should have been nominated for The Wind

Emil Jannings, won for The Way of all Flesh/The Last Command, should have won for The Blue Angel

Maurice Chevalier, nominated for The Love Parade, should have won for One Hour With You

Spencer Tracy, won twice and nominated innumerable times, should have been nominated for Me and My Gal 

Miriam Hopkins, nominated for Becky Sharp, should have won for Trouble in Paradise

Fred Astaire, nominated for The Towering Inferno, should have won for Top Hat

Ginger Rogers, won for Kitty Foyle, should have won for Top Hat

Robert Donat, won for Goodbye Mr. Chips, should have been nominated for The 39 Steps
