Samuel L. Jackson

Jackson won a specially created prize at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival for Spike Lee's "Jungle Fever," yet his performance was ignored come Oscar time. The Academy has been particularly clueless about Jackson's talents, nominating him for "Pulp Fiction" but ignoring "Jackie Brown," "Black Snake Moan," "Eve's Bayou," "Hard Eight" and this year's "Django Unchained."
