Top Gun: Maverick was one of the most successful movies at the box office in recent memory, and it also won numerous accolades. 

However, Tom Cruise's Best Actor Oscar nomination was conspicuously missing from the list of nominees.

Miles Teller was one of many who thought Cruise merited the honor. Teller, however, has a theory as to why the actor might have gone unnoticed.

Teller made it clear in an interview with the Associated Press that he firmly believes Cruise ought to have been nominated for an Academy Award. According to the actor who played Rooster in Top Gun:

 Maverick, awards are frequently given to performers who demonstrate that they have worked very hard to master a particular skill, and Cruise has unquestionably demonstrated that. Teller outlined...

Miles Teller is undoubtedly telling the truth when he makes this statement. The performances that are able to demonstrate that a great deal of effort has gone into the performance...

... are those that frequently receive award recognition. It's simple to see how different an actor is from their typical selves when they play a famous person in a biopic, a genre that frequently receives accolades.

According to Miles Teller, Tom Cruise's "problem" is that he makes everything seem simple. Tom Cruise has worked extremely hard, but it's not immediately apparent to someone on the outside because he makes it seem too simple.
