Comments

The Oscar winning actress Geena Davis, was honoured with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in early 2020 in recognition of her work in promoting gender equality in the film industry. According to the Academy, the honorary Oscar ā€œis given to an individual in the motion picture arts and sciences whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry.ā€

The award was indicative of a woman hanging on for dear life in an industry that can swallow up and spit individuals out with horrifying regularity. It was all so different thirty years ago when the notion of salvaging a career could not have been further from her mind.

After a string of successful hits, including The Accidental Tourist (for which she won an Oscar in 1988), Thelma & Louise (1991) and A League of Their Own (1992), Davis’ success unexpectedly plummeted when she made two back-to-back movies with her then-husband, Renny Harlin. The first was the jaw-droppingly bad Cutthroat Island (1995), which bombed so hard at the box office, it remains one of Hollywood’s most unsuccessful movies. Then came another underwhelming action thriller, The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996), which recovered less than half its budget domestically, amid mixed-to-positive reviews.
