    I thought her first nomination came relatively late, compared to some of her contemporaries. And it must have been a turnoff for some of the voters that she was playing Robin Williams’ mother despite the only 4 year difference in age…

    I haven’t seen The Big Chill or The Natural yet, are they recommended?

    M – I like Sally Kirkland in ’87, with Cher runner-up and then Close.

    Elazul – I’m not terribly fond of The Big Chill or The Natural, or Close’s performances in them. If anyone deserved a Best Supporting Actress nom for the former, I’d say it was JoBeth Williams. The Natural is a gorgeously shot picture but otherwise pretty saccharine stuff.

    I thought that “The Big Chill” was a great ensemble piece, so I’d recommend it on those terms. As for “The Natural,” if you can buy into the fabel-esque tone of what the film and Robert Redford is doing there, then sure, it’s worth a view, I guess. I have a thing for nostalgic baseball movies, so I’m somewhat biased.

    She absolutely should’ve won for “Fatal Attraction”, in particular over the fluff, cute performance of Cher in Moonstruck.

    She will win this years because guillermo del toro films are more visual than oscar type. Although sally hawkins  is a strong contender thd academy prefer solid conventional drama performances

    She needs a reliable distributor before she can compete.

    My fear is this winds up with a minuscule distributor (think Roadside Attractions or even smaller) that opts to dump it in theaters next spring.

    It will be sad see this movie release next year. Glenn is in great shape. She had a hit on netflix with noomi rapace. A wonderful season on broadway eith sunset boulevard. She is the model of a generation. I think its time to recognize her. So the wife with the perfect distributor will be a hiton the oscar season. If nothing happens we will wait to close win with sunset boukevard nect year

    I think she would have a much easier time winning next year. If a good distributor waited until next fall to release this would it really be such a bad thing?

    Well if glenn will be out of the race i predict frances mcdormand winning again. Sally hawkins is great actress but i dont think the academy will embrace guillermo movie.

    Because how do we know it will be easier? Great performances pop up every year

    Close will always have to fight for her rightful recognition these days for her film work. She was just taken for granted and sometimes never fully appreciated for the genius she brought to her best performances.
