What does Glenn Close deserve?February 20, 2013 at 9:03 am #542179
Jessica Lange should be up there for Tootsie, not Frances.February 20, 2013 at 9:20 am #542180
Glenn Close should’ve been a 3-time Oscar winner by now. She should’ve easily won for Fatal Attraction, Dangerous Liaisons and Albert Nobbs.February 20, 2013 at 9:27 am #542181
None of them…I never rank Close higher than #4 any year she was nominated…ranked 4th in 1983, 1988 & 2011…5th in 1982, 1984 & 1987.February 20, 2013 at 9:39 am #542182
Well, it’s just a “game”, so I picked 1987.
I really don’t mind Cher’s win at all, but lord, Glenn acted the hell out in FA. Such a crazy bitch!
Of course the Academy wouldn’t dare to reward it. *gg*
Runner up would be 1982 and 1988 (although in that year I’d have voted for Meryl for A Cry in the Dark).
I have not seen The Natural, but in no way she was going to win for The Big Chill or Albert Knoobs, that’s for sure. Sorry Glenn….February 20, 2013 at 9:59 am #542183
I think I’ll have to go win 1987 also. Nothing against Cher, but Close was terrifyingly brilliant!February 20, 2013 at 2:46 pm #542184
It’s a real shame she doesn’t have an Oscar but I don’t think she was the best in any year. There are certainly times when the person who won shouldn’t have but there is still a superior performance than Glenn’s in the lineup.
If I had to give her one win it would be 1988 but she doesn’t really come close in any of the others.February 20, 2013 at 3:41 pm #542185
I voted for Cher, who was definitely charming in the wonderful Moonstruck but Glenn Close was truly terrifying and brilliant in Fatal Attraction.
Amongst her nominations, I would rank her 2nd in 1982; 4th or 5th in 1983, 5th in 1984, and then 2nd in 1988. As for her work in Albert Nobbs, I actually may even give her the win for that too, but it is still so recent and I want to watch a couple of the performances again from that category to make a more firm decision.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantFebruary 20, 2013 at 3:51 pm #542186

As much as I love Foster’s work in The Accused Close was miles better in Liaisons.August 29, 2013 at 3:17 pm #542188
CherAugust 30, 2013 at 3:01 am #542189
Foster in The Accused, they wouldve give the oscar to glenn, if they know jodie will win again in a much more deserving performance from the silence of the lambsAugust 30, 2013 at 6:43 am #542190
No queston…..Cher!August 30, 2013 at 10:20 am #542191
No one. Ms Close should stay rightfully Oscarless. 🙂 But i wouldn’t mind if she won for Garp.August 30, 2013 at 7:53 pm #542192
One of my favorite Close perfs is Reversal of Fortune, for which she was overlooked for a nomination. I’m still unsure as to how she recieved one for The Natural. She’s ethereal, but I’m not convinced she should have gotten a nomination for it.
I wouldnt take away any of those Oscar wins from those fabulous ladies and their iconic perfs. Still, I’d love to see Glenn win one. She’s fabulous.
