First and foremost, Oscars are hard to win. There is no question about it. So, to expect that every good actor will have an Oscar to his or her name is a little unreasonable. Having said that, there are actors who have put in years of hard labor and are still Oscarless. Imagine being Annette Bening 30 years of acting career behind her. 4 Oscar nominations. And yet 0 Oscars. Is that justifiable? When you compare Annette Bening with Brie Larson or Eddie Redmayne, it seems even more baffling. But that’s how movie business works.
