Even though Matthew McConaughey won the award for his role as a lawyer in "A Time to Kill," one could argue that his real breakthrough performance came five years earlier in the cult film "Dazed and Confused ... more." Either way, McConaughey has proved to have lasting star power, appearing in scores of films, such as "The Wedding Planner," "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days," "Failure to Launch" and "We Are Marshall."
