    I feel that if done properly, Sunset can truly be historical, or, she will have this generation’s Mommy Dearest.

    By the way, I thought Glenn was outstanding in The Wife.

    The issue is she hasn’t been cast in a worthy role for 30 years.

    I’m not sure you fully grasp how the tide changed for her after her loss to Olivia Colman. What exactly do you think she’s doing in a film like Hillbilly Elegy on paper: prestige director, apparent-supernova Amy Adams co-star.

    Most big directors know she’d very likely win plaudits for whatever she does. The sympathy and overdue narrative really is strong enough for people to keep beating the drums and hyping her with every subsequent performance. It literally happens with Amy Adams too. Close is incredible and Adams is just-fine. From the way I see it, Adams has accumulated her status almost entirely on coattail nominations, and that’s been enough to get her more prestige films. Both are similar in that quite literally any of their next role could be it. Sure, Close is older, but how do you not see it lol, she’s catapulted to the top of “person to watch for 202x Oscars” for pretty much every role. More than Streep even because Streep isn’t getting name check noms anymore (for what it’s worth, if Close had been in Let Them All Talk, whether in Meryl’s role or Candice Bergen’s, she would be a lock. And that’s not a great movie, just an adequate one.)

    Justice for Passing, Tessa Thompson & Ruth Negga.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I hope you’re right. I think what can really turn it around for her is if Swan Song ends up being a hit this year.</p>

    Unfortunately I think Glenn Close’s Oscar chances are not looking great at the moment. With the Sunset Boulevard film adaptation being dead, and without a promising project upcoming, it looks like it might be awhile before we see Glenn garner another nomination.
