Close is a six-time nominee, tying Thelma Ritter and Deborah Kerr for record of most nominations without a win. She totally deserved the Oscar for Fatal Attraction. We wish she'd gone crazy like her character, Alex, did in the flick whenever she was denied something she wanted.
If only Close stalked the Academy, got close to them, waited for them outside their office, invited them to the opera, delivered a tape recording of herself throwing verbal abuse at them, and creepily told them that she will not be ignored. In that exact order.
