    I really can’t wrap my head around this. Nobbs was a critical and commercial failure. The Wife received decent reviews and was a very modest financial success. And of course, Hillbilly Elegy was panned, even though it did generate buzz. Would another actress have made it in for any of these movies?

    I think Glenn gave good performances in all of them (maybe not worthy of a win), but I’m pretty shocked she got in for all these movies while others of her generation (Pfeiffer, Bening) have failed to gather recognition in the same period.

    It’s strange how someone who hasn’t been a star since the 1990s accrued the same number of nominations since 2011 as Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Saoirse Ronan, Amy Adams, Octavia Spencer, and Viola Davis. Not to mention more than other critical darlings like Jessica Chastain, Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett, and Michelle Williams.

    Considering her failure to be nominated between 1988 and 2011, she wasn’t even a default nominee, so this is puzzling.

    She’s still well-liked in the industry, thus making her a perennial nominee.

    I believe that her very strong work in Damages made it clear that she is not over yet. Thankfully

    She spent the 2000s winning Tony’s and Emmys proving she wasn’t done and was still the biggest living loser in 2011 onwards.

    Each time she got nominated it also looked like she could’ve won in August.

    Glenn was part of the new group of future icons that took over the 80s (Steep, Close, Lange).

    Her peers have 2 and 3 Oscard. She has none.

    And? I mean the great Al Pacino himself has only 1 Oscar. And he is considered to be more iconic than Close.

    IF you’re really asking the reasons why Close continues being nominated and not being facetious, it’s parts legendary icon status, industry cred, and the high quality of her work beyond being in “flops,” “pans,” “passion projects,” or any other pejoratives used against her. Being this overdue for an Oscar is glaring, and I think the Academy recognizes that with her historic 8th acting nomination. None of these recent nominations should have been surprising.

    She’s a talented respected thespian that makes her name generate buzz in flop projects. That pushes the studios that picks the films to promote her and it “pays off”.

    And really the sign of her power to gather all enough promotion and nominations when her films been so minor. Truly a legend.

    Let me see if I can get all this seasons hot takes:

    1.  Glenn is an overrated hag who only gets nominated cuz of her winning

    2. Boseman is legit robbing hopkins greatest performance ever by dying at an inconvenient time

    3.Depending on who you ask, Carey mulligan, viola davis or andre day will be the worst best actress winner ever

    Is that everything? Am I missing out on anything?

    This thread is pure of revisionism, hatred and ageism.

    First of all: The Wife got good reviews and Close had massive raves. That’s a fact, there are links, etc. The film itself had a good box-office run for a limited release in August. Datas are easily to be found.

    Second: Albert Nobbs was enough loved to reach Academy’s hearts. And that’s a fact. Close had good personal reviews, she was coming from a successful Tv show and the nod was clearly a welcome back accolade. To make room for her, they left out Swinton and many more appreciated stars. They wanted her.

    Third: Close is an icon. An Oscar-less icon, yet an icon. Deal with it. Aside from Oscar, she piloted her career through ways she desired, combined to what industry could do for her. And she got it the right way. In the 1990s, she chose to appear in both mainstream films (Air Force One, 101 Dalmations, Mars Attacks!) and indie production. She never renounced to her first dreams, being a theatre star, and it is useless by me to remember all the triumph she had on stage. She paved the way for many film stars to reach success in TV movies and shows, after years of snubbish attitude towards little screen. She then came back fully on films, getting three Oscar nods anytime she was in contention. Also for a panned film like Hillbilly Elegy.

    We’re talking and writing about her – fans, stans, haters, normal people – since… forever. And not just because she’s overdue. She’s a treasure, an acting champion and (as it seems) a wonderful human being. There are several actress of her range with Oscars and undeniable talent (Lange, Spacek, Keaton, Huston, Field) that are outstanding, but never had the cultural impact Close has created with her characters. Then again, who cares about the Oscars? They’re funny, they’re the most important awards for entertainment, of course, but they should not set the way to a revisionism like this.

    This thread is offensive and should be discussed for closure.

    Yes – offensive question. Don’t understand all the hate she’s getting. She’s a very respected actress, well loved, and taken seriously for the devotion, attention and respect she gives to the acting craft. Extremely versatile as well. Conquered stage, tv and film. The younger crop of actresses getting Oscars for one-off performances should bow down to her legendary career.

    This is such a stupid thread and you can tell there were no good intentions behind it. Stop messing with Glenn Close, children.
