Six Dames, Seven Knights

Some actors seem to get very lucky in terms of winning, like a constant lottery. Others may seem to almost get there, again and again, as if only reaching the Silver Medal instead of the Gold for more fingers than a single hand. Looking back at the history of Academy Award nominations, there are three actresses with a whopping six nominations to their name without a competitive win, and one actor with one more than that! Can you guess who yet…?

Bonus — this may throw you off — there’s even another actor that has eight nominations/no competitive wins — it just didn’t match adding to the humorous interpretation of the Ivan Reitman film title. Read on:
