Glenn Close earned her first Oscar nomination for her feature film debut in 1982’s The World According to Garp. From there she dominated the 1980s with four more nominations, in both lead and supporting. in 2012 she received her sixth nomination for Albert Nobbs. She is tied with Deborah Kerr and Thelma Ritter as the most-nominated actress without a win. Only actors Richard Burton and Peter O’Toole have more winless nominations.
This year she has The Wife and Close will again be in contention for a nomination that could end her losing streak or put her in a class all by herself. With Sony Pictures Classics behind her, she could be in a position.
[box type=”shadow” align=”” class=”” width=””]Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) is a highly intelligent and still-striking beauty – the perfect devoted wife. Forty years spent sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions to fan the flames of her charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his skyrocketing literary career. Ignoring his infidelities and excuses because of his “art” with grace and humor. Their fateful pact has built a marriage upon uneven compromises and Joan’s reached her breaking point. On the eve of Joe’s Nobel Prize for Literature, the crown jewel in a spectacular body of work, Joan’s coup de grace is to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and secret of his career. THE WIFE is a poignant, funny and emotional journey; a celebration of womanhood, self-discovery and liberation.[/box]
The Wife co-stars Christian Slater, Max Irons, Harry Lloyd, Annie Starke, Elizabeth McGovern, is directed by Berlin Silver Bear-winner Björn Runge and adapted by Jane Anderson from the Meg Wolitzer novel of the same name. It will be released in LA and NY on August 17th from Sony Pictures Classics and then expanding in the following weeks.
