Meg Wolitzer’s ‘The Wife’ Brings in a Golden Globe!

The Wife‘s Glenn Close Pulls Off Surprise for Third Golden Globe Best Actress Win

By Matt Grobar

In a typically crowded field of contenders for Best Actress, Lady Gaga has been a favorite throughout the season, for her turn in A Star is Born. But tonight at the Golden Globes—one of many Oscar precursors—Glenn Close stole the show. A six-time Oscar nominee, Close was recognized as Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Drama, for her role in The Wife, an adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s novel of the same name. In the film from Björn Rung, she plays a woman questioning the choices she’s made in her life, and so appropriately, as the actress took to the stage, she reflected on her own. “When I was little, I felt like Muhammad Ali, who was destined to be a boxer. I felt destined to be an actress, and here I am today,” she said. ” I will have been 45 years, in September, a working actress, and I cannot imagine a more wonderful life.” Read the full story at Deadline.
