Although Brad Pitt-the most charming vampire of all time, has hundreds of successful movies against his name there’s not a single movie which could make the actor’s name fall into the coveted list.

His first nomination for Oscars was in 2004 for Pirates Of the Caribbean, the film which received unconditional love of audiences from across the globe. While turning 50, Depp has managed to appear in countless movies which have turned out to be not only a huge success at the box office but have also been appreciated by critics and audiences.
Ralph Fiennes, the most romantic off-screen villain of all time, has done some mind-blowing roles. He has given brilliant performances in numerous movies but never succeeded in receiving the golden statue. Despite each of the films he has acted in collected many awards, he has never won a single. Schindler’s List received seven Oscars, and English patient got nine.
Apart from just a talented actor, Jim is also one of the most famous comedians in the world. He has some good films against his name which includes, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Always Say Yes, Mask and much more. No Oscar nominations!
Although he got nominated three times for-Jerry Maguire, Magnolia and Born on the Fourth of July, Tom Cruise is yet to receive his Oscars. He has done brilliant roles in Mission: Impossible, Eyes Wide Shut by Stanley Kubrick, Interview with a Vampire but none has helped him in winning the golden statue.
