Best Actress: Glenn Close

The 2012 Oscars are fast upon us! Among the Best Actress hopefuls is Glenn Close, nominated for her role in Albert Nobbs. This is by no means Close’s first nomination; when we first profiled Glenn in July of 1984, she’d already been nominated (and sadly overlooked) twice for The Big Chill (1983) and The World According to Garp (1982). Since then she has received nods (but no wins) for The Natural (1985), Dangerous Liasons (1989) and Fatal Attraction (1988). Evidently the ’80s were a busy decade for Ms. Close!
