I was thrilled that Youn Yuh-jung won Supporting Actress for ''Minari,'' but Close deserves a prize for performing that scripted shtick about ''Da Butt.''
Meantime as Matthew Rettenmund, a movie buff at BoyCulture.com, notes: ''Glenn Close has tied Peter O'Toole as the actor with the most nominations and zero wins. Good company! In O'Toole's case, after seven losses, he was handed a well-deserved honorary Oscar in 2003, at age 70, and went on to secure one final nomination. Close, with eight already, is 74. It's crazy to think of, but Glenn Close is the same age Katharine Hepburn was when Hepburn won her fourth Best Actress Oscar, for ''On Golden Pond,'' in 1982.''
If by some miracle ''Sunset Boulevard'' gets made this summer, I hope Close gets to make her comeback, er, return to the Oscars and victoriously.
