Oscar's Biggest Snubs

Name some of the most storied actors and actresses who have inexplicably never won an acting Oscar, despite multiple nominations. A few of their Oscar-nominated roles are provided as hints for each answer.
This isn't a comprehensive list, nor is it simply a numbers game. The answers were chosen based on a combination of name recognition and the egregious nature of certain performances failing to score them an Oscar.

Good quiz. Would benefit from an extra minute or two. I was able to get the ones where I knew the answer immediately, but I had to skip the ones where I needed a few seconds to come up with the right name.

Time limit is a bit tight.

Also... some of these might be surprising. But... inexplicable? Wouldn't the explanation (rendering them quite explicable) be that there were other performances from other actors that were judged superior in the years they were nominated?

Adjectives sometimes fail to come to mind exactly when I need them. I think it's unbelievable that *none* of the people in this list ever won an Oscar. But I suppose each of them can be explained away, however unsatisfactory that explanation may be.
