15 Victims Of The Oscar Career Curse!
Winning an Academy Award can sometimes be a curse. Some actors and actresses are successful leading up their win but suddenly become less successful after winning the coveted award. Here are 15 actors and actresses who have hit a career low since winning an Oscar.
15. Halle Berry
After winning the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in “Monster’s Ball,” Halle Berry’s career has done anything but flourish. She received a Razzie Award for her role in the much-hated film “Catwoman” and she has starred in other universally derided films like “Gothika,” “Perfect Stranger” and “New Year’s Eve.”
14. Hilary Swank
Hilary Swank has won two Best Actress Academy Awards for her roles in “Boys Don’t Cry” and “Million Dollar Baby,” but she hasn’t been able to escape the Oscar career slump curse. Since her second big win, she has starred in flops “The Reaping,” “P.S. I Love You” and “New Year’s Eve,” all of which challenge her credibility as an actress.
