In 1998, Gwyneth landed the role of a lifetime: Lady Viola in "Shakespeare in Love." For the first time, her professional life outshone her personal. In a review of the film, Entertainment Weekly opined, "Best of all is Gwyneth Paltrow, who, at long last, has a movie to star in that's as radiant as she is." After taking home Golden Globe and SAG awards for her portrayal, on March 21, 1999, Gwyneth won the Oscar for Best Lead Actress. It was her first and only nomination for an Academy Award and marked the peak of her career. She starred in four other films in 1998, and in 1999, the critical smash "The Talented Mr. Ripley."
