Robbed of Oscars! Not even nominated!

In your views, who was most overlooked/ignored at Oscar time?

I have to vote for James Stewart in “Vertigo.” Not even nominated. All time greatest performance not to be nominated, IMHO.
A close second would be Jack Nicholson who BECAME Jimmy Hoffa in “Hoffa.”

And does it amaze anyone else that Donald Sutherland has never been nominated at all?

Three Kings. Certainly one of the top films on 1999, yet it didn’t get a single Oscar nomination in any category.
