For two years, I was one of the supporting players on the Whoopi Goldberg national morning show for Premiere Radio. Once, during a break, our ragtag in-studio team started talking about a certain remark some nominees make at awards time during celebrity interviews. The remark: "It's an honor just to be nominated." Whoopi, as you know, is an Oscar® winner. She enthusiastically stated, "It is an honor just be nominated." She and I are both classic film fans. Together we added that some famous actors worked for decades doing great work in great films and never got the Oscar love that Kim Basinger did with L. A. Confidential. So this blog looks at some actors who were overlooked by Oscars. Let's start with the versatile and gifted Edward G. Robinson. One of my favorite Robinson performances is as Keyes, the moral compass whose insurance company co-worker has sex and murder on his mind in Billy Wilder's classic Double Indemnity. Robinson's work here should've been up for Best Supporting Actor.
