9. Tom Cruise
Thomas Cruise Mapother known as Tom Cruise is well known actor and probably one of the most famous Hollywood actor in World. Mostly famous for his Action and Spy movies, Tom Cruise has also done some classic movies and showed his talent and amazing acting to the world. Though one thing that is missing from Tom Cruise career is an Academy award. He was nominated 3 times in Oscar Awards in 1990 for Born on the Fourth July, in 1997 for Jerry Mguire and in 2000 for Magnolia. But he lost on all three time. O the Dawn of his career we hope that someday he will get an Oscar
8. Jim Carrey
One of the best comedians ever, Jim Carrey is a fine actor and one of those who can just act from his face expression. Critically and commercially successful actor has never won Academy awards. Actually he was never nominated for Oscars, but we think that this extremely talented actor will surely get a chance to hold that Oscar.
7. Marilyn Monroe
Marilyn Monroe is one of the most beautiful and Sexy Actress of American Film industry. She rose to fame from his notable performance in All About Eve released in 1950. Later she made her mark with her acting skills especially the seductive role she did in Some Like it Hot. Though she never got nominated for Oscar awards and that’s the only thing she missed in her career.
6. Leonardo DiCaprio
Probably Most deserving actor in the list for Oscar Award. Leonardo DiCaprio has been part of many movies who did extremely well at Oscars but he never got the chance to hold that trophy. Like Tom Cruise He was also nominated for Oscars thrice but never won.
5. Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt is probably the most attractive Hollywood actor have a huge fan base. He has been nominated in Oscars 4 Time for films 12 Monkeys, Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Moneyball but never won it. The way he is choosing his movies and even producing movies like Troy and Moneyball he has a great chance to win Oscar.
4. Johnny Depp
Most Versatile and perfect actor of Hollywood Johnny Depp never received an Oscar. Surprising but truth. He is recognized as perfectionist in Hollywood who did every type of role in his career (which will last for many more years.)

And He is one of the richest actor in the world as well.
3. Glenn Close
Glenn close, a beautiful and talented actress holds the record of most academy nominations without a win. She nominated in Oscars for 6 time but eventually missed every time.
