Glenn Close

Happy Birthday to

Glenn Close

63 today

Glenn has been oscar nominated a total of 5 times and yet she's never won. I would say that if any actress working today is overdue then it's her, however it's been a very long time since she last performed really well on film and she's been focussing on the excellent "Damages" in recent years. Saying that she will be reprising her stage role of Alfred Noobs later this year and there's always the baity Therese Raquin if it ever gets made.

I agree with you about her being overdue for recognition by the little gold man.....She's like this generation's Deborah Kerr, only more fierce.

I first saw her in "The World According to Garp", an unusual and somewhat underrated film...and she was extraordinary!
