You’re only as good as your last movie, goes the old Hollywood saying. And if you’ve just won an Oscar, that’s not a bad place to be.

Still, this year’s winners aren’t all resting on their Academy laurels. Here’s a sneak preview of what they have in the works.

BRIE LARSON

The “Room” best actress winner has finished filming “Basmati Blues,” a Bollywood-ish musical, in which she plays the creator of a genetically modified rice, and the Boston gang drama “Free Fire.” Next on her roster is “Kong: Skull Island,” a King Kong origin story due out next March.

LEONARDO DICAPRIO

The exhausting filming of “The Revenant” must have been a bear — the best actor winner seems to be on an acting break. He is busy as a producer, though: he worked on the Prohibition-era crime drama “Live by Night” from star-director Ben Affleck and “Delirium,” which stars Topher Grace as a recently released mental patient.

ALEJANDRO G. IÑÁRRITU

After winning back-to-back Oscars for directing “Birdman” and “The Revenant,” Iñárritu will next turn to television. He’ll write and direct episodes of the upcoming Starz series “The One Percent” starring Ed Harris, Hilary Swank and Ed Helms as members of a family trying to save their farm.

MARK RYLANCE

The Brit, who has three Tony Awards to keep his supporting actor Oscar for “Bridge of Spies” company, reunited with “Spies” director Steven Spielberg on “The BFG,” a Roald Dahl tale about a big, friendly giant. He then joins Tom Hardy and Kenneth Branagh for Christopher Nolan’s World War II adventure “Dunkirk.”

ALICIA VIKANDER

Following a banner year with raves for “Ex Machina” and a supporting actress Oscar for “The Danish Girl,” Vikander will next appear in films with three of Hollywood’s top leading men. She teams with Oscar winner Christoph Waltz in the period romance “Tulip Fever,” plays the spy game with Matt Damon in the thriller “Jason Bourne” and raises an abandoned baby with her lighthouse keeper husband Michael Fassbender in “The Light Between Oceans.”
