The long awaited Oscar's ceremony will be held on the night of February 28 in Los Angeles. All fans are waiting to know who will win the muchaspired prize this time. By now it’s well known that the major actor Leonardo Di Caprio has not yet managed to get the Oscar, butinstead of what you might think he is not the only one. Many other world-renowned actors have never got the most coveted prize of the cinema during their career. From Tom Cruise to JohnTravolta...
John Travolta It would be very easy to think that the actor had won the Oscar with "Pulp Fiction" by Quentin Tarantino. Instead, that year Tom Hanks won. There are two incredible mysteries in John Travolta’s career: the defeat as the Best Lead Actor for his performance in"The Saturday Night Fever" (1977), but especially for his interpretation of Vincent Vega in "Pulp Fiction."
Tom Cruise Did you think he'd won the Oscar for "Top Gun" byTony Scott in 1986? The truth is that "Top Gun" had been nominated for eight Oscars and did win two of them, but Tom Cruise was not even considered for his interpretation of Lt. Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell. In that year the statuette as Best Actor protagonist went to Paul Newman for "The Color of Money”.
Johnny Depp The Famous actor has taken part in movies such as : “The 'Pirates of the Caribbean" and “The Secret Window”. On hearing these movie titles, it would be natural to think that Johnny Depp has won an Oscar.. but this is not true at all. In 2003 he was really close to winning the prize, but Sean Penn did instead, win it with "Mystic River" by Clint Eastwood. Depp was nominated to win the prestigiuos statuette only twice, again in 2004 without any succes, for the movie"Neverland - A Dream for Life" and "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street".
