Watch a clip from Lawrence of Arabia
Here's a dubious record: The most-nominated actor who has never won a competitive Oscar is Irishman Peter O'Toole, who first rocketed to the Academy's attention as a Best Actor nominee in 1963 for Lawrence of Arabia and was nominated – and rejected – fairly regularly for the next decade or two. His last Oscar nod came in 2007 for Venus, four years after the Academy tried to make it up him by giving him an honorary lifetime award.
