I would like to know the difference between "nominated" and "won" with regards to movie awards.
From what I understand:
Won : The actor has received the award.
Nominated : The actor has not yet received the award, but will receive it.
But the confusion arises when the actor has been nominated in 2012 and has not yet received it(From IMDB). So shouldn't "nominated" be changed to "won"?
Example : He was Nominated in 2005,2004....but has not "won" those.
