Glenn Close

She's played everything from the best prevention against extramarital affairs (Fatal Attraction) to a goofy interstellar police chief (Guardians of the Galaxy), and always brings a touch of class and energy to whatever she does — even if she's comatose most of the time, as in Reversal of Fortune. Glenn is closing in on 80 acting credits, including five seasons on FX's Damages. We're well past the point of some recognition.

Nominations: Three for Best Actress (Fatal Attraction, Dangerous Liaisons, Albert Nobbs) and three for Best Supporting Actress (The World According to Garp, The Big Chill, The Natural).
Should Have Won For: Fatal Attraction.
Maybe This Is All Punishment For: 102 Dalmations.
