The 25 Best Actresses Who Never Won An Oscar

Glenn Close

Oscar-worthy Movie: Fatal Attraction (1987)

Ah, yes—Glenn Close but no cigar. It's unfathomable that Close hasn't won herself an Oscar yet. She's been active in her career since 1974 and there are no signs of her slowing down yet. She's well-known for her versatile roles, not to mention her drunk impression at the Golden Globes this year, which is deserving of an Oscar in and of itself.

Close is a six-time nominee, tying Thelma Ritter and Deborah Kerr for record of most nominations without a win. She totally deserved the Oscar for Fatal Attraction. We wish she'd gone crazy like her character, Alex, did in the flick whenever she was denied something she wanted.

If only Close stalked the Academy, got close to them, waited for them outside their office, invited them to the opera, delivered a tape recording of herself throwing verbal abuse at them, and creepily told them that she will not be ignored. In that exact order.
