Just thought it would be interesting to look at who is technically the most overdue (most nominations without a win in any category) per category and ask how likely they are to win at this point. Or out of this list who is the most likely to eventually win?
Kathleen Kennedy (8 nominations)
Peter Weir (4 nominations)
Though since he's listed as retired really tied then with 3 nominations each:
Paul Thomas Anderson David Fincher David O. Russell Stephen Daldry Ridley Scott David Lynch
Bradley Cooper (3 nominations) Viggo Mortensen (3 nominations)
Marsha Mason (4 nominations) Glenn Close (4 nominations)
Ed Harris (3 nominations) Willem Dafoe (3 nominations) Mark Ruffalo (3 nominations)
Amy Adams (5 nominations)
Skipped adapted screenplay because the max is 2 nominations.
Mike Leigh (5 nominations)
Caleb Deschanel (6 nominations) Bruno Delbonnel (6 nominations)
Jacqueline West (4 nominations)
Mary Zophres (4 nominations)
Jay Cassidy (3 nominations)
Hank Corwin (3 nominations)
Richard Francis-Bruce (3 nominations) William Steinkamp (3 nominations)
Frank J. Urioste (3 nominations)
Makeup & Hairstyling:
Aldo Signoretti (4 nominations)
Thomas Newman (14 nominations)
Diane Warren (14 nominations)
Greg P. Russell (16 nominations)
PD's & VFX's Wikipedia articles don't care about nominations totals beyond #1. Didn't include animated because it is still a relatively young category.
