article imageReview: Glenn Close wins Golden Globe for 'The Wife,' pulls major upset Special

By Markos Papadatos     Jan 7, 2019 in Entertainment
Glenn Close is on her road to Oscar gold. At the 2019 Golden Globe awards, she pulled one of the biggest upsets of the night (over Lady Gaga), and rightfully won.
A veteran actress, Close took home the Golden Globe award for "Best Actress in a Drama" for her performance in The Wife.
In her poignant acceptance speech, a visibly-shocked Close remarked, "Oh my gosh. Thank you so much Hollywood Foreign Press. This is such a great honor." She went on to express how honored she was to be with her "category sisters," and praised them for the work they put out this year. "We all should be up here," Close said.
This marked Close's third career Golden Globe award, but her first for her film work. She previously won in 2008 for her television work for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Drama" for Damages, as well as in 2005 for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Miniseries or a Motion Picture Made for Television" for The Lion in Winter respectively.
Fellow "Best Actress" nominee Lady Gaga congratulated Close via Twitter. "I also could not be happier for Glenn Close winning tonight. She is a true legend and deserves every award," Gaga tweeted.
Throughout her illustrious career in acting and entertainment, which spans well over four decades, Close has been nominated for six career Academy Awards, three of which were for "Best Supporting Actress," and the remaining three were for "Best Actress." She has always been regarded as an "actor's actor," and hopefully, this will be the year where Close's losing streak will be over, and she finally takes home her long-overdue Oscar gold.
