    Glenda Close, Best Actress for Reversal of Fortune

    Isn’t she narrating off-screen most of the time? I think that would have been an egregious fraud had she went lead.

    She was campaigned in lead due to contract reasons and she had top billing. She kinda felt supporting to me. She spent a lots of time off screen and it seems like Irons had a much bigger presence. Lots of people have been jumping more on the supporting train than lead. I do think a lead placement would’ve been totally plausible but for me she felt more supporting. Anyway, I’m actually appauled as to why she didn’t get any traction for this. I do think she could’ve had a much biger push in supporting, specially in terms of a win.
