Intro:

The world is big, but with the digital revolution, the borders aremelting day by day. It's hard enough to win an Oscar of the actingvariety, but it becomes that much more elusive when you aren't evennominated to begin with! These actors have shown us their versatiletalents on the big screen and we have certainly taken notice - TheAcademy, however, hasn't...for some reason.

So which of these talented international actors, that have never even been nominated for an Oscar, do you think has been unjustly overlooked by The Academy? Please tell us here.

Rules:

No actresses from this list, because they are in first part:

I don't understand why some options say "for his lifetime work". They can only be nominated for a role.

Thank you, Peter. :D
Some of them on the list are dead. They could only receive it post hum. "For his/her lifetime work" may be not completely correct. There have been people awarded post hum for their lifetime work. I don't know the correct name of this Oscar, but I know it exists. E.G. F. Scott Fitzgerald was nominated post hum with the Irvin Thalberg Memorial Oscar. And other may have done so much good roles, never recieved an Oscar, but should - because of their lifetime work. What do you suggest?

Some of them on the list are dead. ... and some of them are old, had many good roles, but still no Oscar. Many achievments. ;)

The Honorary Award is a gesture of respect given for lifetime achievements, exceptional contributions to motion picture arts and sciences, and for outstanding service to the academy.

I think mentioning this will give the poll two different directions. Maybe you can make a separate poll for people who should be given the Honorary Award.

I am aware of the honorary awards. These awards do not have official nominations. And the poll question is not about which awards they should win in the future.

Also, Delroy Lindo could very well be nominated next year.

But that leads the poll idea ad absurdum.
Quote: "And the poll question is not about which awards they should win in the future." Eoq.
Three of the suggested people are aready dead!
Jean Gabin
Toshiro Mifune
Rutger Hauer
& 1 (by me)
Rita Hayworth

Peter, you might be aware of honory awards, but on the first list of Kyle Perez, there were also people who died and could only get a honorary award, like Edward G. Robinson. For what Oscar would he nominated next year? He is dead since 1973!

@Jessica 

Thank you for reminding, Jessica. I've put your suggestions on the list. Should I link your user profile with your user name on IMDb or your user name on the sprinklr-forum?.

It will be a little work, because I have to update the list. Some of the actors will have been nominated meanwhile. I have to check this. Chadwick Boseman had to leave the list, because he was nominated since this list got made. I totally lost this list of my mind, because the first part was made by another user. Thank you for reminding me.

I guess Kyle has to update his list. Meanwhile Scarlett Johansson was nominated twice.

Hi Breu, my vote would go to Delroy Lindo, with Billy Crudup coming in second. I was so hoping Lindo would have been nominated this year for 'Da 5 Bloods.'

May I suggest three small edits to the intro? ('Very well written intro, by the way! I wish I would write German 1/100th as well as you write English.)

The world is big but, with the digital revolution, the borders are melting day by day. It's hard enough to win an Oscar of the acting variety, but it becomes that much more elusive when you aren't even nominated to begin with! These actors have shown us their versatile talents on the big screen and we have certainly taken notice - The Academy, however, hasn't...for some reason.

So which of these talented international actors, who have never even been nominated for an Oscar, do you think has been unjustly overlooked by The Academy? (As of April 2021.)
