Following the films Sliding Doors (1998) and A Perfect Murder
(1998), Paltrow garnered worldwide recognition through her
performance in Shakespeare in Love (1998), for which she won an
Academy Award for Best Actress, a Golden Globe Award and two

Sliding Doors and the adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel
Great Expectations with Ethan Hawke, Robert De Niro, Anne

Hush opposite Jessica Lange and A Perfect Murder inspired by
Alfred Hitchcock's 1954 film, Dial M for Murder. Paltrow
