Do Actors Get Money For Winning An Oscar? No, But Yes

    But some examples in the past include Halle Berry getting a 98% boost after her 2002 Oscar win for Monster’s Ball — going from an average salary of $118,750 before her win to $6.5 million after. Tom Hanks also saw a 93% boost after his first Oscar win for 1994’s Philadelphia, going from an average of $700,000 per movie to commanding $10 million. Some boosts are more subtle, like Kate Winslet “only” going from around $2 million to $2.5 million after winning Best Actress for The Reader in 2009, per Money Nation.
