(GRAPHIQ) — Sometimes, even the biggest A-list celebrities in the world can’t catch a break. An Oscar is considered one of the highest honors a creative can receive in Hollywood, but there’s a long list of demonstrably talented artists who still haven’t received the award. Many think that every notable actor has an Oscar on his mantle, or, if she’s been nominated more than few times, that surely she’s won by now.

Unfortunately, as our numbers show, you can be an Academy Award nominee more than half a dozen times and still lack a golden statue.

PrettyFamous compiled data from Gracenote to find actors who have (unbelievably) never won an Oscar, sorted by how many times they’ve been nominated. In the event of a tie, we ordered the list by the number of Wikipedia page views for each celebrity. Fortunately, for many of these talents, there’s still time to break the curse, including at this year’s 88th Annual Academy Awards ceremony on Feb. 28.

Charles Boyer

Nominations: 4

  • Actor – 1938 – “Conquest”
  • Actor – 1939 – “Algiers”
  • Actor – 1945 – “Gaslight”
  • Actor – 1962 – “Fanny”

Charles Boyer had female audiences swooning from his heartthrob roles throughout the ’30s and ’40s, but in real life he was a more reserved man than the Don Juans he played onscreen. He elevated his status as a character actor in the 1950s on Broadway and in television, staring in shows like “The Rogues” and “The Dick Powell Show.” Boyer retired from acting in 1970 to care for his ailing wife.

Marsha Mason

  • Actress – 1974 – “Cinderella Liberty”
  • Actress in a Leading Role – 1978 – “The Goodbye Girl”
  • Actress in a Leading Role – 1980 – “Chapter Two”
  • Actress in a Leading Role – 1982 – “Only When I Laugh”

Over the next few decades she had career-defining roles in “The Goodbye Girl, ” “Heartbreak Ridge” and “Drop Dead Fred.” Since 2004, she has resurged in television as a guest star on series like “The Good Wife” and “The Middle.”
