“Tonight on Murder, She Wrote!” Every week, I tuned in to watch Anglea Lansbury use her wits to catch a killer. You may not know this but Ms. Lansbury was nominated 15 times for her role as Jessica Fletcher. Angela Lansbury was also great in the original “Manchurian Candidate.” She won a Tony, but still no Oscar or Emmy.

#19 Robert Downey Jr.

When I think of Robert Downey Jr., I think of a brilliant actor who has had to overcome adversity and came out triumphant. Even before his troubles, he had some brilliant roles. I really hope he wins an Oscar soon. He deserves it.

#18 Joaquin Phoenix

With his brilliant portrayal as Johnny Cash in “Walk the Line,” one would think he would be a shoe-in for winner, but alas there has been no Oscar for the talented actor. I know I am looking forward to his role as The Joker.

#17 Annette Benning

Ms. Benning has been in the movie industry for a while now, and one would think, in all that time, she would have won an Oscar. Her performance in “American Beauty,” among others, was riveting.

Perhaps many see Bill Murray as a comic actor, and this is true, but Bill Murray has also done some great dramatic roles such as “Lost in Translation” and the independent film “St. Vincent,” both amazing films everyone should see.

#15 John Malkovitch

John Malkovitch brings a certain charisma to every role he does that you can’t deny. You may get a chill up your spine when he plays a psychopath such as the role he did for the film “In The Line of Fire.” I swear these things are rigged.

#14 Ed Harris

He played famous artist Jackson Pollock in the indie film “Pollock,” as well as the sinister Christof in “The Truman Show.” Although he has been nominated numerous times, he still has not received an award for his performances.

Who can deny the talent of Glenn Close? You can try but one wouldn’t suggest it. “Fatal Attraction” is probably one of her best performances but a long with playing an unhinged woman, she also has played other characters that have been worthy of an Oscar.
