    The absolute reach. It’s the director of Albert Nobbs, with whom Glenn already worked twice before. So, it’s no surprise as to why she said yes. Also, can yall stop pretend there’s always Oscar worthy projects for women her age? Specially when Hollywood seems to think only Meryl is alive to play those roles.

    Settle please. I’m just saying that the trailer and she looks the fool. But you are right that unless you’re Meryl, it’s struggle buss for white actresses of a certain age. That is also why I said she’s game for anything.

    I just saw the trailer and YIKES!!! Close needs to have a word with her agent.

    Absolutely yikes! I will say that I think Close would have been better in Burstyn’s role in Pieces of a Woman.

    What Close really needs to win is a strong, acclaimed across the board project with a showy project. A Marriage Story if you will. Her problem is that in spite of her having the respect form her peers, she doesn’t have the right vehicle and her roles (whilst well played like in The Wife) are quite subdued. Hillbilly Elegy gave her the right type of showy role she needed but it’s the wrong vehicle (imo).

    I agree. She will be 74 later this year. It’s almost impossible for women at 74 to get work. It’s even difficult for men. Huge stars like Arnold, Willis, Stallone, Ford are doing crap after crap. You have to be a GOAT like De Niro and Pacino to get great work at 77 or 78.

    It’s best supporting actress, not best picture. The work that Close did in “Hillbilly Elegy” is all that’s under consideration.

    Agreed.

    My take on it:

    And even De Niro and Pacino do a lot of crap, cause not all projects they get are  good. I mean De Niro has 2 Razzie noms and Pacino has 4 Razzie noms ( and he even won once). But I don’t see people clutching their pearls and trying to pretend that they are bad actors, like they do it now with Close.

    Agree. That’s the problem with this thread. It’s a backhanded attack at her and her multiple nominations. If it was really about validating the actress, it would have been phrased differently. Why not question why Emma Stone’s has had three nominations in 6 years or Davis 4 or God forbid, Lawrence 4? And please don’t tell me they all deserved those nominations because they are great acting thespians. Legends! Ridiculous thread.

    Emma Stone got 3 nominations in 3 Best Picture contenders, with 2 of them being the frontrunner so it makes sense she was getting nominated, Davis has been nominated for acclaimed films where her performance was praised. And Lawrence was the it girl when she was getting her nominations so nobody really questioned it but many people here clearly disagree with her receiving some of them.

    Good god not the same five or so people starting the whole “this thread was to attack Glenn” type of conspiracy without any prompt? I found Glenn’s nominations to be thoroughly deserving for Albert Nobbs and The Wife (and even win worthy) but I am still intrigued by how she managed to get those nominations because it’s quite rare for a performer to get in solely as the sole nominee for their films at the narrative obsessed Oscars.

    There’s no harm in asking this question. I want to know how Brad Pitt won an Oscar last year when Tom Hanks and Al Pacino gave more acclaimed and transformative performances? Does that mean I think Pitt is a bad actor? No, but I’m still fascinated as to how he won. I want to know why Peter O’Toole failed to win an Oscar. Does that mean I think everyone who won over him was undeserving or that he was undeserving? No, but it’s still an interesting question.

    People need to stop taking things seriously. No one is trying to insult Close in this thread and as far as I’ve seen none of the usual ageist trolls of her have come in this thread and caused chaos.

    The point of contention is that it’s incredibly ageist bullshit that for some reason (maybe b/c Close is competitive to win the Oscar and it leaves the haters so pressed), the goalposts are constantly changing for Close to win, while other perennial nominees aren’t targeted. She has to be in “Citizen Kane” apparently to win an Oscar when no one else is held to that same standard. Asking why someone is continually being nominated reeks of “why are these undeserved nods happening in the first place?” No one would dare ask this of Viola Davis, for example. It’s incredibly disingenuous and facetious, and people have rightfully called out that shit for exactly what it was.

    If Glenn had won BA for Dangerous Liaisons, one of my favourite performances of all time, this thread wouldn’t exist.

    she had 3 projects where distributors could afford to campaign her, add acclaim and sympathy with the industry and there’s that. it’s really not that head-stratching.

    and no Hillbilly Elegy nom is not out of this world. netflix did its work with screnners and focusing on glenn’s face for the film, plus she had just came off an year where she was the frontrunner and lost. her nom was more than expected.

    to be honest, I would ask this about anyone if they’re nominated for a movie like HE. she is not bad in it, her performance is good as usual but the way she will get tied to that shitty movie forever if she wins for it what makes me uncomfortable and unwilling about it.

    It’s not Best Picture, but Best Supporting Actress. Close’s work was Oscar-worthy in it, so I have no problems whatsoever with her association or attachment to the film.
