Laurence Olivier

Over a period of 40 years, Laurence Olivier was nominated 10 times for acting or directing Oscars, for roles in "Wuthering Heights" (left), "Henry V," "Richard III" and "Othello," among others. He turned a nomination into a win only once, for acting in 1948's "Hamlet." The Academy did grant him a special award in 1947 for "bringing 'Henry V' to the screen," and an honorary award in 1979.
