Matlin and the Oscar Curse

The Charlotte Observer got some heat from Marlee Matlin and her fans when it ran a Newsday article last week, listing Matlin among actresses who "suffered from the 'Oscar curse' of having a career meltdown after winning an Oscar." Daniel Bubbeo write in the article "Sadly, her most memorable post-Oscar performances have been in The Lip Reader, a 1993 episode of Seinfeld and on season 6 of Dancing With the Stars." The Oscar-winner shot back in a tweet "The West Wing, The L Word, Switched at Birth; my 4 Emmy nominations is hardly a "curse." Many fans added their voice to the discussion in support of the Matlin as well. Read the original story here.
