The Academy Awards are right around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited about the prospect of prior Oscar winners like Denzel Washington, Robert De Niro and Sally Field adding another golden statue to their collection.

That being said, there is a surprisingly extensive list of acclaimed baby boomer actors who have never received Hollywood’s most coveted award, despite having been in the field for quite some time.

Below we have compiled a list of boomer actors who -- much to our surprise -- have never won Academy Awards. What actors are you surprised have never won? Let us know in the comments section.
