He's baby-faced and people of Academy voting age can't forget his original role on TV as the baby-faced teenager Luke on Growing Pains during it's last season of 1991-92.
He's a decent actor, but that baby-face is something that he will have until his 60s.
For this reason, it's hard to see him as, say, a father figure or even as a husband. He will always seem like a young man or a kid until he actually reaches grandpa age. People just don't think of him as a middle-aged adult despite the fact that he is 41. However, he is a good actor and, sooner-or-later, he should win an Oscar simply for the daring and interesting roles that he takes on and does well in.
It's sort of like the same reason Tom Cruise hasn't won an Oscar and he is great actor, better than Leonardo DiCaprio.0

The Academy Awards have always been a popularity contest and pandered to The Academy's tastes.
The King's Speech won an Oscar and was one of the most boring movies I have seen so far (and I usually like biographical movies).
The very first Oscar was supposed to go to Rin Tin Tin, as he received more Best Actor votes than Emil Jannings, but do you know how quickly the Academy would have been shut down if they gave the very first Best Actor award to a *dog*?
I'm not saying Leo is a dog (though his dating habits may lead people to believe otherwise), but he's probably getting snubbed for the shits and giggles at this point.0
