(Newser) – You'd think legendary actor Cary Grant would have won at least one Oscar, right? Wrong: Though he was nominated twice, Grant never took home the prize. Gear up for Oscar night with The Stir's list of 10 actors who, surprisingly, never won an Oscar:

  • Bette Midler: She has, however, "won plenty of Golden Globes," writes Lindsay Mannering, who notes Midler was nominated for her roles in The Rose and For the Boys.

  • Peter O'Toole: Not a single statue, even though he's been nominated eight times.
  • Glenn Close: Another non-winner with a lot of nominations—five—but none since the 1980s.
  • Johnny Depp: He hasn't won so far though he's been nominated three times (for Pirates of the Caribbean, Sweeney Todd, and Finding Neverland), and "If he keeps making movies like The Tourist," his future prospects aren't looking so bright either, quips Mannering.
Click for the complete list, including one actor who must be "too pretty to win."
