Year won: 2008
Was she cursed? Amy Winehouse's career definitely took a hit after she won the Grammy, due mostly to her drug and alcohol dependence; her personal troubles had a huge impact on her public image, and sadly, she succumbed to her addictions in July 2011. Five months after her death, an album of previously unreleased material, titled Lioness: Hidden Treasures, was released. It debuted at the top of the UK Albums Chart, giving Winehouse the biggest first-week sales of her career.
