Samuel L. Jackson
Just for the longevity of his career and that fact that he’s been in more movies than most folks have seen, Samuel L. Jackson deserves some Academy recognition. Whether he’s fighting snakes on a plane, fleeing genetically mutated sharks or being a "bad motha-(shut yo’ mouth!), Sammy makes all his roles memorable.
In 1994, Samuel was nominated for an Oscar for his role in Pulp Fiction.
