Thelma Ritter

A character actress with a strong Brooklyn accent, Thelma Ritter was nominated for roles in six films, including 1950's "All About Eve" and 1962's "Birdman of Alcatraz" (left). She also co-hosted the 1955 award ceremony with Bob Hope. She never won an Oscar herself, however, tying Deborah Kerr for the most actress nominations without a win.
