Tom Cruise is one of the best stars to set foot in Hollywood. His risk-taking in films, performance, and versatility drew fans toward him. He’s been a fan favorite since Risky Business. Cruise has a lot of successful films under his belt. He’s won three Golden Globes (Born on the Fourth of July, Jerry Maguire, Magnolia), but he hasn’t won an Oscar yet. Will Tom Cruise ever win an Oscar?
Tom Cruise is one of the highest-grossing box office stars of all time. He has delivered so many impressive performances. Cruise is known for many films like Top Gun, Born on the Fourth of July, Rain Man, A Few Good Men, Interview with the Vampire, Jerry McGuire, Collateral, Minority Report, etc. He’s been consistent and dominant for years.
Tom Cruise should’ve won an Oscar for his performance in Magnolia. He won a Golden Globe but not an Oscar. No disrespect to Michael Caine. He’s one of the greatest actors of all time. He did a great job in The Cider House Rules, but Best Supporting Actor should’ve gone to Cruise. 1999 is one of the best years in Cinema: Magnolia, Fight Club, The Matrix, The Mummy; the list goes on and on. If you saw Tom Cruise in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia, you saw how special he was in that pictures. There’s one scene where he took his performance through the stratosphere. The scene with him and his dying father solidified the movie. When you think about one memorable scene in Magnolia, you think about Tom Cruise visiting his father, whom he didn’t have the most significant relationship with.
Cruise should’ve been nominated for his performance in Rain Man. It’s ridiculous that he didn’t get nominated. Cruise and Dustin Hoffmann were two-person shows in that film. Hoffman won Best Actor for his role. Cruise should’ve been nominated for Supporting Actor.
We hope that before Tom Cruise leaves this earth, he can win an Oscar. He deserves it. It doesn’t matter what you think about him and Scientology, but his track record speaks for itself.
