It's Oscar season! Which means it's time to start judging celebrity gowns and bickering in the office about who should have won. But it might also mean the end of a relationship for one unlucky starlet if the Oscar love curse strikes again.

Actresses from Bette Davis to Kate Winslet have been victims of the Oscar Curse.
There have been a few exceptions, like Joanne Woodward, who won Best Actress in 1958 and was happily married to Paul Newman until his death in 2008. The same went for Jessica Tandy and a small handful of other actresses. This year, only half of the ladies are safe, either being currently single or windows of long-time spouses. Sandra Bullock, Judi Dench, Sally Hawkins, Lupita Nyong'o and June Squibb are in the clear. But who runs the risk of breaking up with their honey? Read on to find out.
