So Glenn Close beat Lady Gaga for Best Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama at the 2019 Golden Globes last night in what may be one of the biggest upsets in modern Globe history.
Close, who was seated all the way at the back of the auditorium, won for her role in The Wife. The award is her 15th Golden Globe nom and third win over the course of her 45-year career as an actor. And while she has been nominated six times, she has never won an Academy Award.
During last night’s ceremony, Close gave a truly powerful acceptance speech, where she talked about how it took 14 years for The Wife to be produced, about how her own mother struggled with balancing marriage and motherhood and her personal life, and why seeking “personal fulfillment” outside of partners and children is vital.
The speech was met with teary-eyes and a standing ovation.
But Gaga fans were unmoved, to say the least.
Many were furious that Mother Monster, who picked up a trophy for Best Original Song earlier in the evening, didn’t take home the top acting prize. Naturally, they took to social media to voice their outrage.
Here’s what the Little Monsters are saying…
I just found out Lady Gaga didn’t win best actress for her role in A Star Is Born, and I’m ANGRY. WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK?! #robbed
