You ever watch a classic movie with your friends and just gush about an actor? You're sitting there, eating popcorn, interrupting the movie and annoying your friends saying, “Man, look at that. Look at that acting. It's so good. It's no wonder they got an Oscar for this.” Then your friend stirs and says, “No, they didn't.”

You're furious. Of course they won the Academy Award for this performance. In fact, they won more than one Oscar in their career. You go to Wikipedia… no Oscars. But Wikipedia can be tainted by any jerkbag's opinion, so you go onto IMDB… man, you could have sworn they won the Academy Award. Oddly, this actor didn't just not win the Oscar for this movie you're ruining, they have never won an Oscar.

In fact, several talent and respected actors with decades-long careers have never won an Oscar yet most movie buffs would mistakenly think so. Here are 13 of them.
