As the 2021 Oscars have come and gone, some fresh Hollywood stars like Youn Yuh-jung have earned the "Academy Award-winning" prefix for the first time. Other major A-listers, however, have returned home empty handed, yet again.

Glenn Close is one of the most surprising examples, as this year marked her eighth Oscar nomination without a win, this time for her role in 'Hillbilly Elegy.' The 74-year-old actress earned nods throughout her long and fruitful career across films including 'Fatal Attraction,' 'Dangerous Liaisons,' 'Albert Nobbs,' and 'The Wife,' as well as 'The World According to Garp,' 'The Big Chill,' and 'The Natural.' Close is now tied with the late actor Peter O'Toole, who also had eight nominations and zero wins throughout his career. 

Of course, awards shows are not the deciding factor on who has talent, but this particular trophy remains one of the most highly respected honors in Hollywood. Click through to see which world-renowned actors and actresses have surprisingly never received an Oscar.
