10. Brad Pitt

While some criticize his acting, he has had a few rather phenomenal performances making it very surprising he has never won an Oscar. He has been nominated for a Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Twelve Monkeys, as well as Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Moneyball, for which he also received a Best Motion Picture of the Year nod. With so many of his best performances already not winning him a coveted Academy Award, the question remains, what will it take?

9. Edward Norton

Edward Norton has proved his worth as an industry chameleon. His versatility for roles has had him portray all kinds of different leads, and he’s even taken on a superhero franchise with The Hulk. After so many major performances, Norton still does not have an Oscar and in fact has only been nominated for one three times. He was nominated for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Primal Fear and for Best Actor in a Leading Role for American History X, and for Best Supporting Actor in Birdman. Without a doubt, all performances were iconic in the industry yet not enough to get him an Oscar.
