For These 3 Great Modern Actors, an Oscar Was Due Yesterday
The Oscars are considered one of the most important awards in the world of cinema. However, thousands of academics often ignore not only great movies, but also amazing actors who deserve the accolade.
We decided to make a list of actors who have not yet received the coveted trophy, although they definitely should.
1. Adam Driver
American actor known for his vivid and emotional roles. His character of Kylo Ren in the Star Wars saga brought him widespread popularity.
Despite his talent and excellent acting, Driver has yet to win an Oscar. However, he has been nominated twice: in 2019 for BlacKkKlansman and in 2020 for Marriage Story.
In his 40s, he's worked with Martin Scorsese, Ridley Scott, Jim Jarmusch and Steven Soderbergh. Many film critics believe that sooner or later Driver will get his well-deserved award.
The career of this actor began back in 1991, and since then Gyllenhaal has perfectly balanced between indie films and commercial pictures. But despite the abundance of roles, Jake still could not get the precious golden statuette.
He received his first and last nomination for his role in Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain. The movie tells the story of two cowboys who fall in love in the America of the 60s.
Since then, the actor has found time to star in one of the most important thrillers of the 21st century, Prisoners, Tom Ford's incredibly beautiful drama Nocturnal Animals, and David Fincher's gripping Zodiac.
Fans of the actor believe that the Academy is unfairly ignoring the actor, who definitely deserves at least a second nomination, if not an Oscar, as his track record includes a huge number of memorable films. His performance in Nightcrawler is particularly noted by many.
3. Amy Adams
And perhaps the female equivalent of Leonardo DiCaprio, as Adams has failed to take home a single award despite 6 nominations! The actress is great at combining difficult movies, for example with Zack Snyder's Superman, where she played the girlfriend of the main character.
Not only fans, but many critics believe that Adams is one of the most underrated actresses in Hollywood and deserves recognition for her talent.
Her performance in Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master was incredible, and the success of Adam McKay's The Vice and David O. Russell's The American Hustle was largely due to the incredible acting skills of America's most underestimated actress.
