'Moonstruck' (1987)

Cher proved she was the mistress of comedic timing on her old musical variety show with late ex-husband Sonny Bono. And she struck Oscar gold as best actress as a dowdy, 37-year-old Italian American widow who finds love with the eccentric younger brother ( Nicolas Cage) of her fiance. Olympia Dukakis picked up supporting actress as Cher's mom, and John Patrick Shanley picked up an award for his screenplay. MGM
