Meryl Streep: 14 Losses
Not counting this year's awards, Meryl Streep has earned a total of 17 Oscar nominations in acting categories, but only took the trophy home on three occassions. After winning the award for her roles in "Kramer vs. Kramer" and "Sophie's Choice," the actress was nominated 12 straight times without a win. She finally broke the streak with her 2012 Oscar for "The Iron Lady." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Julien M. Hekimian/Getty)
