Abstract:     
We analyzed the marital histories of all Best Actor and Best Actress Academy Award nominees from 1936 to 2010 to determine the effect of a sudden status shift on marriage survival. We find that Oscar wins are associated with a greater risk of divorce for Best Actresses, but not for Best Actors. This asymmetry is consistent with gender dynamics documented in marriages among the general population.
