The Academy missed the mark when it awarded actor Gwyneth Paltrow ‘finest actress’ for Shakespeare in Love in 1999, the American actor Glenn Close mentioned in a latest interview. According to Page Six, throughout an interview with ABC News‘ Popcorn with Peter Travers, the 73-year-old star praised actor Fernanda Montenegro’s “powerful performance” in Central Station and mentioned that it “triumphed” Paltrow’s.

“I honestly feel that to be nominated by your peers is about as good as it gets. And then, I’ve never understood how you could honestly compare performances, you know?” Close mentioned. “I remember the year Gwyneth Paltrow won over that incredible actress who was in ‘Central Station’ and I thought, ‘What?’ It doesn’t make sense,” she added.

The Hillbilly Elegy continued so as to add, “So I think who wins has a lot of things to do with how things have been, you know, whether it has traction or whatever. Publicity, how much money did they have to put it out in front of everybody’s sight. I have to be philosophical about it if I was upset about it.”


As reported by Page Six, different Best Actress nominees that yr included Meryl Streep for One True Thing, Cate Blanchett for Elizabeth and Emily Watson for Hilary and Jackie.
