Glenn Close earns Lifetime Achievement Award

By Alexandra Heilbron on September 20, 2011 | 1 Comment

Glenn Close has been honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the San Sebastian International Film Festival on Sunday. During her acceptance speech, she announced that she has no plans to retire from acting anytime soon. She said, “This is the first lifetime achievement award I’ve ever received. And what I am thinking of is the army of people I have collaborated with over the course of my career. They have inspired me. Challenged me… Everyone wants to believe something. We can remind people how connected we are. That, to me, is a privilege. I pledge to continue to find stories that I hope you will love and characters that you can find a common thread of humanity with.” Glenn is receiving critical acclaim for her work in Albert Nobbs, in which she plays a female posing as a male in 19th-century Ireland. She also co-wrote the script. The film has its world premiere at TIFF just over a week ago, though a theatrical release has not yet been announced.
