The 91st Academy Awards are today, with Glenn Close, Lady Gaga, Christian Bale and Rami Malek up for the big prize for best actor and actress, among other nominees. But don’t worry if your favorite doesn’t walk away with an Oscar, some of Hollywood’s best actors have been snubbed completely.

For example, John Travolta didn’t nab either of his two nominations in the past, and neither did his “Pulp Fiction” co-star Samuel L Jackson for any of the 100-plus films he’s starred in. Some people haven’t even been nominated, like Jennifer Aniston and Blake Lively. Here are some more actors and actresses who have never won an Oscar, and in some cases nominated.
