We're less than one week away from the Oscars, and while we're cheering on this year's talented nominees (oh hey, Eddie!), we're also thinking about those lauded actors who have continuously scored nominations over the years while simultaneously winning over audiences.

Why, you ask? Well with five-time nominee Leonardo DiCaprio poised to probably take home his first-ever Oscar, we got to thinking about other talented stars who've been nominated several times in their careers and never won (how is this fair to Diane and Glenn?!).
