Each year, deserving performances lose out in the Oscars’ best acting categories. But there are a handful of great actors that the Academy has repeatedly nominated and neglected.

This year, Saoirse Ronan was nominated for the fourth time for “Little Women,” but lost the lead actress Oscar to Renée Zellweger, who won her second Oscar on Sunday.

Joaquin Phoenix and Brad Pitt turned their luck around this year, though. They both scored their first acting wins on their fourth nomination, Phoenix for lead actor for “Joker” and Pitt for supporting actor for “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.”

Others haven’t been so lucky.

Amy Adams (six nominations) and Glenn Close (seven nominations) lost last year to Regina King and Olivia Colman in the supporting actress and lead actress categories, respectively.

Both Bradley Cooper and Willem Dafoe were nominated for their fourth acting Oscars last year (Cooper has a total of seven nominations including for producing “American Sniper” and “A Star is Born,” and writing “A Star Is Born”). Both lost in the best actor race to Rami Malek for his performance in “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

And all-time great Peter O’Toole, unfortunately, had it even worse.
