The Evolution of Gary Oldman

When you think of amazing character actors, one leaps to the top of the pack: Gary Oldman. Incredibly versatile, he is utterly convincing in whatever role he plays. The late 80's/early 90's were an especially ripe period where he zig-zagged from playing Sid Vicious to Lee Harvey Oswald to Dracula to nearly stealing the show in his few minutes of screen time as a drug dealing pimp in True Romance. In the late 90's he was well known for his villainous roles, but in the 2000's, he endeared himself to a new generation of fans by playing both Sirius Black in the Harry Potter films, and Commissioner Gordon in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy. Only one question remains: why hasn't this man won an Oscar yet?
