Samuel L. Jackson
The Cannes Film Festival actually invented an award (Best Supporting Actor) just to acknowledge Samuel L. Jackson's incredible performance in Jungle Fever, but he's received no such respect here at home. Despite appearing in some of the most popular franchises of all time and being a fount of quotables, the Academy has yet to acknowledge the greatness of this beloved entertainer. How much longer until he starts calling them out?
Nominations: One for Best Supporting Actor (Pulp Fiction).
Should Have Won For: Django Unchained.
Maybe This Is All Punishment For: Possibly a failure to get all of those motherfucking snakes off that motherfucking plane?
