<![CDATA[The Greatest Actors Who Have Never Won an Oscar (for Acting)]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/greatest-actors-who-have-never-won-an-oscar
There are many actors who haven't won an Oscar. For 95 percent of the acting population, there is probably a good reason they haven't taken home one of film's most prestigious honors. Only two actors per year can win either the Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor Oscars, leaving eight other nominees with nothing. And all of the other actors in the biz out in the cold.

But does the Academy always get it right? There are plenty of actors who haven't won an Oscar despite the fact that they’ve turned in amazing performances. Whether it’s due to stellar competition, bad luck, or an out-and-out snub, some artists have never gotten the recognition they deserve.

Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are all big draws at the box office who haven't received the same respect of the Academy that they have from audiences. While they've all been nominated for Oscars, they've never taken home the big prize.

There are a surprising number of big name actors who haven't won an Oscar. It's up to you to determine which of these men is the greatest.

Edward Norton

Gary Oldman

Harrison Ford

Ian McKellen

Johnny Depp

Leonardo DiCaprio

Liam Neeson

Peter O'Toole

Ralph Fiennes

Robert Downey Jr.

What is the best quality a woman can have? What are the most important personality traits in women? What are the top qualities a good woman has?

<![CDATA[The Best Movies Based on TV Shows]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-movies-based-on-tv-shows/ranker-film
The best movies based on TV shows are those legendary movies that spawned from our favorite TV shows of all time. It's really easy to make a horrible film adaptation of a favorite book, television show or classic film. These great TV shows turned into movies are the exact opposite. With numerous successful films to its resume, the "Star Trek" franchise perhaps saw the best success on the big screen. Based on the classic television series, the science fiction franchise has prompted so many great movies dating back from the original film in 1979 to modern adaptations released as recently as May 2013. 

That's not to say that other television shows adapted into movies are not awesome too. "The Fugitive," "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," "Traffic" and "The Naked Gun" are all prime examples of filmmakers taking a TV series and turning it into an equally, if not more, successful movie. In some cases, filmmakers did this simply from a character or sketch from a show such as in cases of "Borat," "Wayne's World," "The Blues Brothers" and "Bruno."

But for every great movie based on a TV show, there are also dozens of bad movies adapted from television shows. Thankfully, these are the best of the bunch. Which TV show to movie adaptation is the absolute best? Vote for them below!



South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Star Trek

The Addams Family

The Blues Brothers

The Fugitive

The Untouchables

The X-Files

<![CDATA[The Best Movies Based on Books]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-movies-based-on-books
List of the best movies based off books, voted on by cine-bibliophiles everywhere. Many movies are based off of books but whenever a new movie based on a book comes out there is an endless amount of whining about how Hollywood isn't original and why can't they write their own stories? That's simple, it's because these amazing stories are already written and Hollywood has the means to bring them to life, and some times they do it better than even your imagination thought possible. This list looks at the films based on the books - novels, literature, or nonfiction - that made you want to reread the book, started endless "which was better the movie or the book" debates, made you squeal with delight that you pictured it that way in your head, and just blew your frickin' mind.

<![CDATA[The Biggest Douchebags in Hollywood]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/top-hollywood-douchebags/analise.dubner
The biggest douchebags in Hollywood are the people we love to hate and wish we could remove from our happy, cozy world. These people are famous, but often not for being talented, like top Hollywood actors or Grammy-winning musicians, but rather for being entitled, arrogant, self-obsessed, and rude. For many of these people, any press is considered good press which only feeds into their attention-seeking, annoying ways.

An awful trend among many of these biggest Hollywood douchebags is that many are only famous for being famous. Either they came from a reality show, like Spencer Pratt from "The Hills," or Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi from "Jersey Shore." Even Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton fall into that category with little on their early resumes besides being born into high-profile families and releasing celebrity sex tapes.

Others are simply awful people. Rapper Kanye West is no stranger to awkward unscripted moments on live television. Chris Brown will always be marred by his domestic violence against former girlfriend Rihanna. Donald Trump might be rich and successful, but no one will forget his birther nonsense against President Obama. Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck spew hate on a daily basis during their political talk shows. In a perfect world, none of this awful behavior would exist but here, it makes for quite the list of douchebags.

So for whichever reason these people earned top status of Hollywood douchebaggery, be it from their anti-Semitic rants like Mel Gibson or from their womanizing ways like John Mayer and Jesse James, all of these celebs have a very special spot in a very hot place waiting for them. Which celebs grind your gears? Vote up those you think are the most douchbaggy, add any not listed or re-rank this list your way below!

Al Sharpton

Chris Brown

Donald Trump

Kanye West

Kim Kardashian

Paris Hilton

Rosie O'Donnell

Spencer Pratt

Kris Jenner

Justin Bieber
is just a another wannabe musician
