Best Supporting Actress: Mighty Aphrodite (1995)

While Mira Sorvino has displayed considerable charm and a flair for comedy, her career has been decidedly unmemorable. While she won an Oscar for her performance as the ditzy, vocally challenged prostitute in Woody Allen's Mighty Aphrodite, she was nevertheless greatly criticised at the time. Sadly she's garnered more attention from her past relationships with director Quentin Tarantino and French actor Olivier Martinez than her movies over the years.
