In an ideal world, an actor or actress would win an Oscar and then only star in critically-acclaimed movies to the end of days. Unfortunately, that’s not always how it works.

There’s even a theory that winning Best Actress could be deadly to your marriage — just look at Hilary Swank, Sandra Bullock, and Reese Witherspoon.
Luckily, bad movies can be extremely entertaining. So in honor of the upcoming Academy Awards, let’s take a look at 13 movies starring acclaimed Oscar winners after they won their award.
