The list of actors who’ve won Academy Awards is long and distinguished. So is the roll of those who haven’t. Continuing a series of films this month that earned nominations – but not statuettes – for notably Oscar-less stars: Brad Pitt is born old and grows younger over time in a touching and memorable adaptation of an F. Scott Fitzgerald short story. (Rated PG-13)
