I could have sworn that there was a page dedicated to Glenn Close. If someone finds the original, please link it in here.
I want us to discuss Glenn Close here.
Close is one of the most awarded performers of her generation, but, she has yet to win an Academy Award.
Close has won…
– 3 Primetime Emmy Awards
– 3 Tony Awards
– 3 Golden Globes
She has been nominated for…
– 7 Academy Awards
– 3 Grammys
Close could possibly be nominated for an Oscar this year with Hillbilly Elegy but the reviews of the film are not truly welcoming. She has her eyes set on a live action musical remake of Sunset Boulevard, for which she has won a Tony Award for.
I personally think Close would be the PERFECT choice to star in a biopic for the GREATEST First Lady in American history, and that is Eleanor Roosevelt. Here is a 7 minute video on Eleanor for those who do not know much of her. Basically, she was the President of the United States while her husband was fighting for his life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T-VhVWYK6w&t=8s

Sis should have won for Fatal Attraction or Dangerous Liaisons. I thought her late career nods for Albert Nobbs and The Wife were her weakest of all of her nominations.November 24, 2020 at 1:11 pm #1203866752
My favorite performance of hers is Patty Hewes in Damages. Truly an incredible actress. Loved that her last two Oscar nominations were for truly understated work, despite The Wife having that one blow up scene. I’m really iffy about Sunset Boulevard because she really is too old for the part, and I’m not that big of a fan of the musical. I would love it if she won for something truly great. I rather her be not nominated for HE than be given a sympathy nomination or (less likely) a sympathy win. Someone like her should win for something more-or-less undeniable.November 24, 2020 at 1:14 pm #1203866780
I feel that at times, Glenn can be over the top, which is not always the best thing for her. The best scene in The Wife is when her husband was giving his speech. That was one of my favorite moments from her.November 24, 2020 at 2:37 pm #1203867365
I’m really iffy about Sunset Boulevard because she really is too old for the part,
But isn’t the whole point of that character that she’s an ‘over the hill’ actress? I think that part would be pretty adaptable and relevant to any actress over 40.

Close is absolutely not too old to play Norma Desmond, as Chloe says^. I saw Glenn live in 2017 and she was tremendous.

Oh lord! I just love this actress so much!
I discovered her thru Pfeiffer. As a teen I watched Batman Returns in 1992. I was mesmerized by Pfeiffer. So I checked out the Fab boys movie, Scarface and then Dangerous Liaisons. Though Pfeiffer impressed me in DL, Close was the one I could not forget. And then watching her in Fatal Attraction. I mean…really! She is truly an iconic actress. Been a devoted fan since then.
My favorite performances of her on the big screen is in Dangerous Liaisons. My favorite tv performances is in Damages. Just WOW!
If I could recast Doubt and August: Osage County, she would have replaced Streep in a heart beat, as I see it fit
Glenn Close trademark: her characters express so much with their faces and eyes, both subtile and big
Best Picture: The Way of The Wind
Best Director: Decision to Leave
Best Actress: TAR

Her most iconic role are The 100 Dalmatians and Fatal Attraction.November 24, 2020 at 6:54 pm #1203869280
Close should have won her Academy Award for Dangerous Liaisons. Her Marquise de Merteuil is still my favorite of her film roles; the final scene is so impactful and iconic. It’s a shame she lost to Foster, particularly for that heavy-handed and uneven performance. I also found her performances in The World According to Garp and Fatal Attraction as being award-worthy. She was so prolific in the 80s, with five nominations in 7 years. Unfortunately, she was not able to win during the height of her career.November 24, 2020 at 7:17 pm #1203869407
I said this before, but I kind of miss Close being the villain. She needs a role in a well-written horror film.November 24, 2020 at 7:23 pm #1203869450
I think her Paltrow shade will endear her this season.November 24, 2020 at 11:17 pm #1203870367
Wouldn’t she be too old for Eleanor?
Anyway, she should have been an Oscar winner for any performance that isn’t The Wife
Anticipate "Hold My hand".
