    Another one in the mix. Not sure if she’d be Lead or Supporting for this role. It’ll be interesting if this can break through in a way that “Ben Is Back” and “Beautiful Boy” did not. If Hillbilly Elegy begins shooting in a few weeks and Four Good Days starts in September, I’m assuming Sunset Boulevard would be at the end of the year at the soonest.

    I still think there’s a very slight chance that Hillbilly Elegy could be released this year. Its shooting schedule is pretty much the same as The Post, and it’s not like this is going to be a VFX-heavy film. Releasing on Netflix also means the distribution and marketing are completely different from a traditional cinematic release. More than that, I’m betting Netflix wants a strong awards contender (is there anything else on their slate that could possibly be it?).

    Lmao this is hilarious. Glenn coming hard for that Oscar. She keeps accepting projects, she can probably do these roles in her sleep. But as long as she has an Oscar.
    This news comes right after Olivia accepts her first movie role after the Favorite.

    Yes, but the difference is that Olivia isn’t even in the news lol.

     

    No need to shade Olivia. As much as I wanted Glenn to win, I’m fine with Olivia’s win. Her win came just at the right time and no doubt will catapult her career. And she deserves it because she has great potentials. She was excellent and heart-breaking in Tyrannosaur but nobody cared about it.

    Good that Glenn is securing film work. Hoping her 7th loss was a wake up call for a mercy victory likely in supporting actress.

    It does seem like the loss or just the publicity from this season has really energized her film career.

    If you look over her films for the past few years it was either small parts in big movies or just stuff I never even heard of.

    2 or 3 big roles announced in the last 2 months is pretty good.

    It’s fantastic for her. I hope that she will have a really award-worthy performance just like she did this season but actually win for it.

    Not another of The Wife lol. I’m sure roles like The Wife, Hillbilly Elegy and Four Good Day are so easy for her that even when she can do them better than anyone else, it’s just some roles she can do in her sleep. Even though I have little hope for this, Norma Desmond would be the best to award to acknowledge the role and also her whole wonderful career.

    Close will get her proper third act if the Academy is forced to acknowledge her at every step.

    Can we all agree that Glenn Close is the 2nd greatest actress alive behind you know who?

    In my opinion for her tv and theatre work and all her success in those mediums she has a legitimate reason to be called the greatest actress alive ahead of you know who.

    Please give me your opinions.

    Agreed. I think/hope that after this year’s travesty she will win for any decent performance. I think Hillbilly Elegy is her best shot at the gold. It has a great director and crew and it’s based on an acclaimed novel. There is, of course, controversy but I believe it’s her best shot though this Mila Kunis movie seems to be a great alternative. Anyway, this double punch for 2020 will only enhance her chances at the win with whichever (especially if Sunset Blvd. is indeed produced though I am a bit hesitant to believe that). In a way, losing the Oscar was a good career move – she’s starting to establish that Leo-vibe where everybody wants her to just win and she is getting all these great projects because everyone wants to be the one giving her the Oscar role.

    She can easily win two Oscars. A good strategy for the 3 movies is all what she needs. The movies needs to hit theaters in the most suitable period. A mid sept-nov release is what she needs. A good Oscar buzz and the opening of awards seasons will automatically translate into nominations from critics circles and the precursors. Netflix backing her up will also certainly help.

    The movie with Mila Kunis looks baity af. If she delivers I mean if she really does, the critics will align and possibly the precursors. At this point she doesn’t need to sweep. SAG especially might want to check for someone else, but if she can win a GG, some few critics awards and a heavy campaign, I believe the Oscar is hers.

    SB is a given, only if the movie is actually made. This is an Oscar caliber role, she will automatically be nominated. What the movie needs is a Joe Gillis (really famous to guarantee some visibility and B.O good numbers). They also need a hot ingenue for the supporting girl role Emma Stone would kill that part, a veteran actor for Max ( an actor that will follow the path of E Grant and Sam Elliott). If the movie is actually critically acclaimed all the cast will got nominated and Glenn is the one who will ultimately win. A great cast will definitely support her win.

    For Close to win two Oscars on Oscar night would mean everyone is nervous that she’ll lose both categories and want to ensure she’ll go home with one.

    The only way Close will win an oscar is if she gets a disease or something tragic happens to her, like Elizabeth Taylor´s first win. Otherwise, she´s just getting an honorary one.

    People need to stop being so confident about Sunset Boulevard- it could really easily be a huge disaster if not done well.

    Near death only works for hot chicks: Taylor’s first, Jolie’s Hersholt.
