8. Bill Murray

After over forty years in the industry Bill Murray has become one of the major pop culture icons of this generation. He is mentioned frequently in movies, and is highly regarded by the best in the best in the industry and, if it wasn’t shocking enough that he has never taken home an Oscar win, he has only ever been nominated for one. Through all of his performances it wasn’t until 2004 that he finally was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for Lost in Translation. Unfortunately he lost out to Sean Penn in Mystic River, and has never had the opportunity for a win before or since.

7. Michael Keaton

Michael Keaton is everything anyone could want in an actor. He’s talented, handsome, original, dedicated and versatile, yet through everything he has produced over the years, it wasn’t until 2015 that he got his one and only Oscar nomination. After winning the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in Birdman, many thought he was undoubtedly taking home the Academy Award as well, but the award instead went to Eddie Redmayne. If Birdman didn’t cut it, we don’t know what will for Keaton.
