10 Award Winners Who Have Fallen Off the Big Screen
Winning a coveted Oscar is the highlight of an actor’s career. After winning an award, many move on to play other great roles in blockbuster hits — but that’s not guaranteed. Unfortunately, there have been several stars who have disappeared from the limelight completely after winning an Oscar. Here’s a list of former Academy Award winners who have dropped off the Hollywood radar.
1. Kim Basinger
She won an Oscar in 1998 for best actress in a supporting role where she played a femme fatale in L.A. Confidential. But, rather than take advantage of the career boost that the Academy Award offered, Basinger took a three-year break from making movies. She came back to the Hollywood scene in 2000 with a box office flop, I Dreamed of Africa, according to What Culture. So, what exactly is Basinger doing now? She has appeared in other films, but hasn’t received any Academy Award recognition for her roles.
