Have you ever heard of the Best Actress Curse?
It's a common Hollywood phenomenon that goes something like this: A beautiful actress in the prime of her career has the best year ever, which culminates in a coveted Best Actress or Best Supporting Actress Oscar.

"Finally," she thinks, "I have arrived. I'll have roles I can actually sink my teeth into."
