Listen up, Jennifer Hudson. You've now got an Oscar in your hand, but what next? For an idea of what not to do, check out Premiere magazine's gallery of the worst-ever post-Oscar career choices. Among the cautionary tales: Cuba Gooding, Jr., who followed up his win for Jerry Maguire with Chill Factor, Snow Dogs and – gulp! – Boat Trip. Helen Hunt also followed up her Oscar (for As Good As It Gets) with a trifecta of clunkers: Pay It Forward, What Women Want and Dr. T and the Women. And of course, Halle Berry, who, fresh from nabbing Best Actress for Monster's Ball, made Catwoman. On purpose. (At least she had a sense of humor about it, and good-naturedly accepted her Razzie Award.) J-Hud, you've been warned!
