I agree about Viola Davis, but the first two names that sprung to mind when I read the thread title were Amy Adams and Michelle Williams.

Amy Adams
Michelle Williams
Johnny Depp
Julianne Moore

I strongly believe Amy adams may have her time in the next few years. If she deserved it for any film, it should of been for Junebug.

Johnny Depp would get it if he stopped arsing about with cartoonish character who have very little depth.

I tentatively agree with Amy Adams. Depp is a fantastic actor, but hasn't done anything remotely Oscar-worthy in years. Frankly, I don't even understand the nomination for Sweeney Todd.

I find questions like these really difficult. It's these that lead to actors winning for roles that perhaps they shouldn't, but are given for their entire body of work. So is then the answer simply the actors you feel should have won in a particular year? If they haven't won an Oscar, why haven't they won an Oscar?

But it is interesting.

I'd argue that 2 of his three nominations have been for cartoonish characters with little depth. Given that he's good at that and the Academy has recognised he's good at that why would he stop doing it?

Leonardo DiCaprio

Personally think he should have had at least a nomination in 2011 for Inception/Shutter Island.

I don't think he should've been nominated for either of those. I do think he should've been given a nod for Revolutionary Road.

He's one who I feel should be an Oscar winner but when I consider each individual performance, there are none I would give him the award for. Again, it's the body of work.

His performance in Django Unchained should have got him a nomination. His finest performance since The Aviator

DiCaprio's best film was the Departed I thought he was the best in it and should have atleast been nominated

I'm also sure that Amy or Michelle will win eventually.

I completely agree. I also think that he should have got a nomination this year in the Supporting Actor category for Django Unchained, but unfortunately it's a really tight category this year - all 5 of the nominees have won Oscars in the past.

Personally, I think he should have won the Best Supportimg Actor for What's Eating Gilbert Grape.
