Tom Cruise: Like Brad, Tom Cruise has also received three Oscar nominations but has never won. The Academy did take notice of his super portrayal of the paralyzed war hero Ron Kovic in Born on the Fourth of July in 1990, but the Oscar went to Daniel Day-Lewis' equally brilliant turn as a man living with cerebral palsy in My Left Foot. In 1997, Tome was nominated for Best Actor again Jerry Maguire, losing to Geoffrey Rush for Shine. The epic drama Magnolia fetched him a third nomination in 2000, this time for Best Supporting Actor. The award went to Michael Caine for The Cider House Rules.
