Lead actress 1998, "As Good As It Gets" Hunt had a successful seven-year run on the sitcom "Mad About You," but her post-Oscar career has seen its share of disappointments. Who can forget the stink of "Pay It Forward," which tainted the careers of all involved -- including Haley Joel Osment and Kevin Spacey? Or her relegation to the role of the seldom-seen girlfriend in the Tom Hanks-centric "Cast Away"? Hunt made a minor return when she wrote, directed and starred in the comedy- drama "Then She Found Me," but the film came and went quickly.
