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?September 20, 2017 at 7:19 am #1202219185
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.September 20, 2017 at 10:31 pm #1202219873
She absolutely should’ve won for “Fatal Attraction”, in particular over the fluff, cute performance of Cher in Moonstruck.September 22, 2017 at 7:22 pm #1202221460
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 performancesSeptember 22, 2017 at 7:44 pm #1202221471

She needs a reliable distributor before she can compete.September 22, 2017 at 8:36 pm #1202221531
Still no news if this film will get a distributor?September 23, 2017 at 9:56 am #1202221937
Probably the distributor will be announced after san sebastian presentantionSeptember 23, 2017 at 4:20 pm #1202222064
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 yearSeptember 23, 2017 at 4:22 pm #1202222066
This vehicle needs to launch this year.September 23, 2017 at 4:39 pm #1202222068
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?September 23, 2017 at 6:09 pm #1202222084
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.September 24, 2017 at 1:29 am #1202222242

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.
