Snubbed! Part 2: 5 Actors Who Should Have Noms

This is a slightly different twist on yesterday's post. This will be on actors who have yet to get any Oscar nominations. Again, I'm limiting the list to actors still working.

Oh, I should mention this. Yesterday's post was on only actors who have been nominated but have yet to win. There was a bit of confusion within the comments.

The Actor: Peter Sarsgaard
Notable performances: Boys Don't Cry, Kinsey, Shattered Glass, Jarhead, An Education
Will Oscar come?: Judging by the depth of some of his performances, there's no doubt that'll happen. When, I can't say.

The Actor: Gary Oldman
Notable performances: Sid and Nancy, JFK, The Contender
Will Oscar come?: It better. Oldman's a hell of an actor and it's almost sickening that he doesn't have any Oscar nominations to his name.

The Actor: Christian Bale
Notable performances: American Psycho, Batman Begins, The Prestige
Will Oscar come?: Hopefully. He knows how to really get into a role (remember The Machinist?). Plus, buzz for The Fighter show good signs for Bale.

The Actor: Sam Rockwell
Notable performances: Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Moon
Will Oscar come?: Considering he blew me away with Moon, I'm sensing Oscar will come. But like what I said for Sarsgaard, I can't say when. Maybe this year for Conviction?

The Actor: Mark Ruffalo
Notable performances: You Can Count on Me, Zodiac
Will Oscar come?: Much like Sarsgaard and Rockwell, Ruffalo is an actor better known for his supporting work. And much like Rockwell and Bale, Ruffalo has Oscar buzz building up for a role he did this year (in his case, The Kids Are All Right).

Other snubbies: Jim Carrey (The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Kevin Bacon (Mystic River)

So again, there's my list. Who's on yours?

  1. I totally agree about Oldman, Carrey and Rockwell. I think Steve Buscemi should've been nominated.

    You should do like a director/film thing also
