The OSCAR! Hollywood's highest accolade. A pinnacle that all actors strive for... and the one thing that will guarantee a long and successful career.... OR WILL IT?
Geoffrey Rush, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Sally Field, Russell Crowe, Tom Hanks, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Julia Roberts, and Kate Winslett... just some of the names who have reaped from their industry's highest honour, and represent those who took out the prize and used it to their advantage. They selected their subsequent projects carefully and maintained integrity in their art, and they remain amongst Hollywood's most sought after players.
But what about the others? I'm talking about that group of Oscar winners who failed to capitalise on their laurels and consequently became B-grade actors. Lets take a look at some of those people who never quite recaptured their fame (or dignity).
