It has been 23 years since Glenn Close was invited to the Academy Awards as a nominated actress. While her career hasn't really sagged since its halycon days of the '80s (a decade that saw Close earn five nominations), there haven't been many opportunities for Close to grab an elusive sixth nomination. Until 'Albert Nobbs.' Close has worked on the film for years since starring in an off-Broadway production of the story in 1982; she co-wrote the script adaptation of author George Moore's source book, and is even acting as the film's co-producer. Which is another way proving that the old adage, "If you want something done right you have to do it yourself," sometimes applies to Hollywood.
