Favorite Oscars moment: Glenn Close does Da Butt!
Watched the Oscars with friends and was fine with how it was all going but then it all went wrong, for me, when Viola Davis and especially Chadwick Boseman lost in the top acting categories for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. I loved the movie and thought they were both at the absolute top of their games.
It left me shocked and flat.
So now that it’s a day later, I’m once again enjoying that joyously fun moment when nominee Glenn Close danced Da Butt.
We didn’t know it was all scripted at the time but who cares. Glenn pulled it off marvelously.
She’s an eight-time nominee and seemed so relaxed and happy to be there even if it meant yet another loss (to Youn Yuh-jung in Minari). If anyone deserves to receive an Honorary Oscar at the Governor’s Awards next year it is Miss Close. Please Academy, don’t wait until she’s in her late 80s – do it now.
