Top 20 Greatest Living Actresses Never Nominated for an Oscar

Emily Blunt just won her first SAG Award in 2019 but still can’t gain attention from Oscar voters.

She took home the trophy in the supporting category for “A Quiet Place” but also had a bid as a lead actress for “Mary Poppins Returns.” She is featured in a photo gallery above that no lady would want — the 20 greatest living actresses who have never been nominated for an Academy Award.

In 2014, “Friends” star Jennifer Aniston looked like a lock to receive her first Academy Award nomination for “Cake,” following citations at the Golden Globes, SAG, and Broadcast Film Critics. Yet on Oscar morning, the Emmy-winner was left out. Aniston’s “Friends” costar and fellow Emmy-victor Lisa Kudrow found herself in a similar situation when she received an Independent Spirit Awards nomination for “The Opposite of Sex” yet came up short at the Oscars.

Other actresses who haven’t been able to parlay their multiple Golden Globe nominations into Oscar bids, including Scarlett Johansson (“Lost in Translation”), Mia Farrow (“The Purple Rose of Cairo”), Maria Bello (“A History of Violence”), Andie MacDowell (“Sex, Lies, and Videotape”), Meg Ryan (“When Harry Met Sally”), Cameron Diaz (“Being John Malkovich”) and more.

Check out these 20 women, listed alphabetically.


Aniston received Golden Globe and SAG nominations for “Cake.” She also received a Spirit Awards nomination for “The Good Girl.”


Barkin received a Golden Globe nomination for “Switch.” She also received nominations from the Chicago Film Critics for “Sea of Love” and “Johnny Handsome.”


Barrymore received a Golden Globe nomination for “Irreconcilable Differences.” She also received a BAFTA nomination for “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.”
