Here's a question for you: If a good actor acts in a really bad movie and a really good film in the same film season, will the crappy flick ruin the actor's chance to win an Oscar for the great role?

It's a question getting tossed around a lot this December because of one Ms. Natalie Portman. See, after a decent career with not-as-decent fan love, the actress earned hallelujahs across the country when she starred in 'Black Swan' and made people remember her talents from 'The Professional.' But Portman has to overcome more than history to earn the top prize. She's got another movie coming out next month, but this one isn't a Darren Aronofsky gem.

It's a romcom with Ashton Kutcher called 'No Strings Attached.'
