Apparently, Gold Derby's musings on the squandered Oscar victory of Adrien Brody (check out our original post here) got our Envelope colleagues Emily Christianson and Patrick Kevin Day thinking about similar examples of lost Oscars promise. Check out the photo gallery they compiled with other examples like Cuba Gooding Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Helen Hunt, F. Murray Abraham and more. Can you guess who else?
