|Kate Hudson was nominated for an Oscar over a decade ago.|
My entry into A Fistful of Films' blogathon. Please excuse the terrible pun in the title of this post. I just couldn't resist.
In 2001, Kate Hudson became an Oscar nominee for her terrific performance in Almost Famous. She had it made in Hollywood, and I'm sure she had a great many projects coming in. Unfortunately, she gambled and lost. When the remake of The Four Feathers flopped, she began appearing mostly in romantic comedies and thrillers, among which include such films as The Skeleton Key, Bride Wars, My Best Friend's Girl, and Something Borrowed. She has since been in some award-winning films like Nine and The Killer Inside Me, but her career has never gotten back on track. Next up, she appears in Mira Nair's thriller The Reluctant Fundamentalist. I hope she gets back to doing films like Almost Famous, because she was fantastic once upon a time.
Note: I wrote a longer post for my blogathon entry, but I forgot that one's pick must be an Oscar nominee. Look for that unused post next week.
