Professional Career

The performance also earned Cage a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. Over the next five years, Cage appeared in many movies but none of them performed very well.

He gathered some praise for his role as a psychopathic criminal kingpin in the movie “Kiss of Death”. But his most acclaimed performance came with the drama “Leaving Las Vegas”.
