Tom Cruise has never won an Oscar award. He has been nominated for it but he never won. In terms of revenue generated per picture, Tom Cruise may be the most successful actor ever but he has always lost out on critical acclaim. There were rumors that Cruise was gunning for an Oscar in "The Last Samurai" because it was uncharacteristic of him to play this kind of character.

There is a perception that Cruise may have missed out on Oscars because he was too popular for them. His performances in movies such as Magnolias, Born on the Fourth of July, Jerry Maguire and Collateral were Oscar worthy. Cruise has made a name for himself by his honest portrayals of the quintessential "good-guy." His most successful movies have been the Mission Impossible franchise, Top Gun, Cocktail, A Few Good Men and Risky Business. Tom Cruise was married to Nicole Kidman before they were divorced.
