With the Oscars rapidly approaching, many people want to look back and see how the past winners’ careers fared after taking home the golden statue. While some have continued to have great success and acclaim, others have faded into the background never to be heard again. Our friends at MovieFone had the same thoughts we did and curated a list of ten people who won Oscars to never be heard and/or respected again. Peep and excerpt:
Cuba Gooding Jr. – Best Supporting Actor “Jerry Maguire” (1996)
Remember “Show me the money?” So charming, so loud. That was Cuba Gooding, Jr., as a hotshot football player in Cameron Crowe’s amiable comedy/drama “Jerry Maguire.” Unfortunately for Gooding, Jr., he followed his win with a slew of box office duds, including “What Dreams May Come,” “Instinct,” “Chill Factor,” “Rat Race,” Snow Dogs,” “Boat Trip,” and “The Land Before Time XIII: The Wisdom of Friends,” playing a dinosaur named Loofah.
