"I have synthesized everything in one principle: win or die."
That is the vision of the life of Marquise de Merteuil Machiavellia, the central character of the film Dangerous Links ("Dangerous Relationship" or "Dangerous Friendship" in Spanish).
Fortunately, the actress who played the Marchioness, the American Glenn Close, has the same method, at least when he or she gets to win or die for an Oscar.

The film has had good reviews since its release, especially Close, set among the leading candidates to fight over Oscar.

Gaui has many other prizes in his name, such as three Tony's theater, three TV Emmys and three Golden Globes, among others.
But the actor himself does not hide the apparently that would make the Oscar, also to get rid of the painful record she's stick on her back.

Why not won
With their prestige and pride that is motivated in the field of critics and audiences, it seems logical to ask why this actor, who is # 39: She's herself a "late development" because she made her first 35 year old film, she does not have one or even a number of Oscars on her book shelves. .
It's not a matter of age: there are many contemporary Americans, like Sally Field, Diane Keaton, Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon, Sissy Spacek or Meryl Streep have one or several sculptures or Academy.
Also, the interpretations for which it was nominated have been robust enough for any of the Oscars that has fallen into hands.
How to forget your iconic Alex Forrest, boring Michael Douglas's "Fatal Attraction" some of us still remember to see a boiling pot; or the one already mentioned Marquesa de Merteuil or "Dangerous Links", expert in confabulations palace; or his character as a man in "The secret of Albert Nobbs".
The truth is that the lack of the Oscar can lead to a number of factors, from the great luck of having met with strong competitors every time he has chosen the prize to the way in which he has promoted promotional & The movies he has nominated status
"Give him the Oscar!"
The situation in which Close reminds us that we have lived for three years ago, when Leonardo DiCaprio won the Oscar for the best actor for "The Reborn" after five previous nominations failed.
The campaign at the time to call Oscar for DiCaprio was more noise than what is now heard in favor of Close, but the actress has his constant supporters:
"I try to prepare emotionally for Glenn Close winning his Oscar"
Interestingly, "The good lady" is not his best film.
It's great, especially because of the evolution that she gives to her character, from the way the first half of the movie has included to & # 39; The war left in the last scenes.
But this is not her most amazing performance.
Katharine Hepburn actor once said: "The actors who win the Oscarthey deserve it, but they get it for the wrong papers ".
Is it a Closing case if she wins this Sunday?
