7 Stars Whose Careers Crashed After Winning Oscars
Eddie Murphy -- Best Supporting Actor Nominee, 'Dreamgirls'
To be fair, Eddie Murphy was only nominated for an Academy Award, for his amazing turn in the 2006 musical Dreamgirls. But he seemed to squander industry goodwill by reminding Hollywood of his regular output when the fat-suited, mean-spirited Norbit arrived in theaters at the same time he was campaigning for his statuette. Shrek The Third was a big disappointment in comparison to its predecessors, but the one-two punch of Meet Dave and Imagine That more or less sealed his fate as a performer anyone was interested in taking seriously.
