I really hope you’re right @Kaziz.
I don’t see a winning role yet for her on the horizon, but considering she was nominated twice in her 70s already, you can’t count her out.May 1, 2021 at 6:22 pm #1204238649
Poor Glenn. It looks like the only way that she’s winning an Oscar is if she’s in a critically acclaimed film from a highly respected auteur filmmaker working today. The Academy just refuses to reward her when she works with mediocre directors making bad or forgettable films.
Swan Song is a film from an Oscar-winning auteur, but it’s unclear how baity her role is. Even if it’s critically acclaimed, it’ll suffer from genre bias.April 30, 2021 at 1:55 pm #1204236697

Queen Octavia Spencer needs to win in lead.April 28, 2021 at 4:29 am #1204233052
McDormand is easily the most limited actress who ever won three Oscars. Having to watch her collecting her undeserved third win when a superior and MORE revered actress such as Glenn Close has ZERO was pure cruelty porn. Those wins won’t absolutely age well. #CancelFrancesMcDormand
Glenn and Frances like each other. After Glenn lost in 2019, Frances came and hugged her during the commercial break.April 27, 2021 at 10:59 am #1204231745
Jodie couldn’t overcome Glenn in Hillbilly Elegy, so I doubt she’s getting a 3rd soon.April 27, 2021 at 9:44 am #1204231488
Renee Zellweger- Cold Mountain?April 27, 2021 at 5:59 am #1204231152
I’m surprised people are saying Close could beat Zellweger. The Wife tanked even moreso than Judy which got a makeup nomination over Close being the lone nominee of her film. Not to mention Renee was playing Judy freaking Garland coupled that with SAG and Globes obsession with Renee, Close would have never beaten her. The only person I could see Close beat in the past decade of winners is Brie Larson but even that is pushing it since Larson’s role was very baity and had a very sympathetic character that played opposite to a beloved child performance.
Glenn could have only beaten Larson that year had she been in 45 Years instead.April 27, 2021 at 5:37 am #1204231115
If Close was nominated over Burstyn and Foster this year, she would have made it in over Bates last year.
A win was never going to happen for this film though.
I agree that she might have beaten Zellweger with The Wife though. But it could have gone either way.April 26, 2021 at 6:26 am #1204228534
I hope her 3rd win makes people recognize other great actresses and stop defaulting to Meryl as the “greatest actress of all time” or whatever.
So happy for Frances.April 24, 2021 at 5:27 am #1204218799
Imagine Andie MacDowell in the Silence of the Lambs! I wonder if it would have been as big a success, and if she’d have won the Oscar.April 17, 2021 at 1:22 pm #1204205881
Brad Pitt has twice the amount of Oscars as that irrelevant in your profile pic.
Wouldn’t twice zero be zero? If you’re going to attempt lame disses here, at least get your math right!April 16, 2021 at 5:23 am #1204203460
Considering that Close was just nominated for a film with 25% on RT, I’d wager the industry (or at least the acting branch). Interviews with many voters have corroborated this. However, that in itself won’t get her a win for a weak film against strong competition (as we saw in 2011, 2018, and will see again this year).
Colman has a small chance of an upset, but please don’t use disingenuous arguments here.
I think she’d be a more deserving winner this year than Close or Seyfried, but this kind of blind standing is absurd.
