2021 Oscars

Glenn Close is now tied for most Oscar acting nominations without a win

Glenn Close is this close to being an EGOT, but has to wait another year for that elusive Oscar.

The celebrated actress has won three Emmys, three Golden Globes, and three Tony Awards, and has been nominated for eight Oscars. This year, she snagged a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her performance in Hillbilly Elegy, but the award went to Minari's Youn Yuh-jung.

The Los Angeles Times notes that with eight Oscar nominations and zero awards, Close is now tied with the late Peter O'Toole for having the most acting nominations without a win — although in 2003, O'Toole did receive a non-competitive honorary Academy Award. Close has been nominated four times for Best Actress (Fatal Attraction, Dangerous Liaisons, Albert Nobbs, and The Wife) and four times for Best Supporting Actress (Hillbilly Elegy, The World According to Garp, The Big Chill, and The Natural).
