It’s an honor just to be nominated, right? Here are three of this year’s nominees who’ve been waiting a long time for an Oscar win. Let’s hope at least one of them gets to deliver an acceptance speech this year.

Roger Deakins

Nominated this year for “Prisoners,” this master cinematographer (a regular collaborator with the Coen brothers) has 10 previous nominations but has never won. In 2008, he was nominated twice in the cinematography category — for “No Country for Old Men” and “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” — and still didn’t hear his name called.

Patricia Norris

Norris, a costume designer whose big career break came with TV’s “The Waltons” in the early 0s, this year received her sixth Oscar nomination, for “12 Years a Slave.” Her previous nominations include “Victor/Victoria,” “The Elephant Man,” and “Days of Heaven.” Though still waiting for her first Oscar, Norris did receive an Emmy in 1990, for “Twin Peaks.”

Thomas Newman

Newman, nominated this year for best original score (for “Saving Mr. Banks” ), comes from a family of Oscar-winning composers: father Alfred won nine times, uncle Lionel won once, cousin Randy won twice. Perhaps Randy’s long wait for his first Oscar — he won on his 16th nomination, cheerfully telling the audience “I don’t want your pity!” — might inspire Thomas, now a 12-time nominee still waiting for his first statuette.
