    When will woman win an Oscar? One of the most gifted actresses working and has not one single Oscar. She right up there with Meryl, Helen, Viola, Cate, Judi,etc imo as far as skill. Her turn in Albert Nobbs was absolutely phenomenal and would have won in another year. Maybe she needs to play a queen ala Dame Judi

    She has a few projects to lined up for this year. Let’s see what happens.

    My hunch is Close is likeliest to win a Supporting Oscar somewhere down the line. If that doesn’t happen, an Honorary prize is all but guaranteed.

    I don’t get how the overdue narrative works for actors like Julianne Moore, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeff Bridges (to a lesser extent) but not Glenn Close, Annette Bening, Judi Dench (for lead), Peter O’Toole, Gary Oldman (to a lesser extent). Not that all the winners exclusively won based on being overdue/didn’t deliver great performances (..there were better ones) or that the veterans deserved wins just for being Oscarless (because I did prefer Portman to Bening and Whitaker to O’Toole). But I just never understood why Julianne Moore NEEDS an Oscar and Glenn Close doesn’t.. It helps to still be young and overdue?

    I can see her winning when she is much older.

    From her generation when it comes to oscarless actresses I prefer Sigourney Weaver. I want Sigourney to win and then Glenn. I want to see both actresses with competitive golden dildos. Don’t care if it’s leading or supporting. Just make them Academy Awards winners.

    Oftentimes, it just comes down to the competition and narratives. Close probably came very close to winning in 1989 for Dangerous Liaisons, but Jodie Foster came roaring back with a fierce performance and Close’s, although a strong, brilliant performance (she would have been my pick) performance was seen as more of a villain compared to Foster’s.

    Glenn Close in her prime was taken for granted. And I believe some voters were outright resistant to her. This gives me no confidence in believing she’s a possible competitive winner down the road. Her last nomination had her a bridesmaid at Streep’s third coronation.

    Close by default is an ideal candidate for honorary recognition from the Academy. Couldn’t believe they wasted that honor on Jackie Chan this year. If they needed to honor an overdue Asian film artist, I’m certain there are superior options elsewhere.

    Foster won for three reasons: they always wanted to give her one, her role was the most graphic and traumatic, and in real life she was a victim of a stalker who attempted to assassinate the president behind her.

    The best chance for her to win the biggest contending prize looking at her nomination history would have been for Fatal Attraction in 1987. Wonder what the narrative was back then.

    Disagree 100 percent. Jackie Chan has had more of an impact in overall film than Glenn. He might not have the best critical films but he has had a hand in help shaping action films.

    Julianne Moore should have an Oscar. Her rivals were either previous winners coming back on only their second nomination or newcomers who should just be happy to be sitting in the audience. Last time Close was a nominee she was considered fifth place filler. Everyone saw her dull movie and thought her performance was equally dull. She made it in solely for sentimental reasons since she hadn’t been nominated since the 80’s.

    Asian cinema has never been a thing to the Academy. Recognizing homegrown talents like Close is very necessary when they denied her in her prime. She also needs to work with a real director instead of these unknown journeymen she thinks will become an auteur filmmaker with name recognition.

    Sigourney deserves competitive recognition.

    The male voter bloc rarely votes for women who play ball busters (Judy Davis in 92, Annette Bening in 99). And Cher was seen as snubbed for her Cannes Best Actress winning performance in Mask. Also, she was in two hit movies that year with Moonstruck being in the top five of the year. Sometimes winning Best Actress is about understanding despite your talents you maybe a one shot deal from circumstantial and systematic reasons.
