    Glenn Close has never won, she’s been nominated 7 times


    Her acting in The Wife was exceptional

    Everyone would like the Oscars to be shorter. Almost everyone would like to see the Academy become responsive to the culture and the needs of the 21st century. But if those efforts result in over 90 esteemed cinematographers and filmmakers politely telling the Academy and the Oscars to stuff it, someone’s going about this the wrong way.

    Academy members Roger Deakins, Quentin Tarantino, Spike Lee, Spike Jonze, and Dee Rees are among those who signed the letter, stating that the Academy needs to rethink its plan to present the cinematography, editing, hair & makeup, and live action short categories during commercial breaks, stat. (The letter’s money line: “To quote our colleague Seth Rogen, ‘What better way to celebrate achievements in film than to NOT publicly honor the people whose job it is to literally film things.'”)
