Oscar: Glenn Close nominated for Hillbilly Elegy days after receiving Razzie nod for same role

Glenn Close has become one of the few actors to ever receive an Oscar and a Razzie nomination for the same role, after her performance in Hillbilly Elegy.

The iconic actress isn’t exactly short of accolades over her career, but she could be about to add to more intriguing ones to her collection.

This week, the 73-year-old was nominated for a Golden Raspberry Award – also known as a Razzie – for her role as Mamaw in the Ron Howard movie.

The Razzies, which are held the day before the Oscars every year, celebrate the worst movies and performances that year.

Now, Glenn has been nominated for an Academy Award for the exact same role, in the supporting actress category.

She’ll be up against Olivia Colman (The Father), Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm), Amanda Seyfried (Mank), and Youn Yuh-jung (Minari).

It’s not the first time an actor has been nominated for a Razzie and an Oscar for the same role, although it is rare.

Amy Irving, who starred in Barbra Streisand’s Yentl, was nominated for a Razzie and an Oscar in 1984, while James Coco was in 1982, for his role in Only When I Laugh.

Other actors, including Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy, and Jack Nicholson, have been nominated for Razzies and Oscars in the same year but for different roles.

Sandra famously collected her Razzie in person in 2010, winning everyone over with an impassioned speech.

Glenn starred alongside Amy Adams and Gabriel Basso in the drama which divided fans upon its release.

The story is told from the perspective of a Yale Law student, who is on the verge of landing his dream job when a family crisis forces him to return to the home he has tried to forget.

It shows his volatile relationship with his addict mother Bev, played by Adams, and his memories of his grandmother Mamaw (Close).

Hillbilly Elegy is available to watch on Netflix.
