    Today is Dangerous Liasions’s 32nd anniversary and we could celebrate it discussing Glenn Close’s placement at the Academy Awards.

    Glenn was nominated for Best Actress but lost to The Acussed’s Jodie Foster in 1989. Do you think she should have won?

    And onto the what this thread is really about: Do you think Glenn is lead or supporting?

    In my opinion, she doesn’t have much screentime, but she certanly makes a big impression and her character is the one who carries and commands the whole thing that happens during the film. For that, I would have nominated her in lead, but I wouldn’t be mad if she went supporting instead.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Absolutely Lead and absolutely ROBBED of the Oscar. By far her best perfomance on screen, to date. That final sequence alone should’ve locked her for the win.

    Agree with the above. Her performance in this movie is one for the ages. I truly don’t think any other actress could have played the role so extraordinarily well.

    I love Jodie Foster but this should have been Glenn’s Olivia moment.

    100% lead. The movie opens and closes with her. Supporting would be Pfeiffer or Thurman. As for the Oscar, of course she should’ve won (and it is indeed her best performance ever) but for all we know she was probably the runner-up. DL was nominated for 7 Oscars and it won 3, so maybe she really did wind up in 2nd place.

    Marquise de Merteuil is THE lead of Dangerous Liaisons for me and this is the performance that should have won Glenn the Academy Award. As mentioned above, she may have less screen time than Malkovich’s Valmont, but she is the main protagonist. She drives the plot and is at the center of the sexual mind play. The film ends on the glorious climax at the opera and in the devastating final scene that is the best of Glenn’s career. Pfeiffer and Thurman were the supporting actresses, with the former being justifiably nominated.
