Glenn Close won the Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama award for ‘The Wife’ at the 76th Golden Globe Awards.
Before stepping on stage to collect the trophy, the Hollywood veteran, according to an online portal, shook hands with fellow nominee Lady Gaga – who was up for ‘A Star Is Born.’
While tearfully accepting the honour, the 71-year-old delivered an empowering message in which she called for all women to fulfill their dreams.
“We have gotten to know each other a little bit so far, and I can’t wait to spend more time with you. I’m so – everything that you did this year, or what you are here for – we all should be up here together, that’s all I can say. Oh, my god, I just don’t believe it,” she said.
Close added, “Here I am today, I will have been 45 years in September that I am a working actress. And I cannot imagine a more wonderful life.”
Apart from Gaga, she beat out Nicole Kidman (Destroyer), Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) and Rosamund Pike (A Private War).
Meanwhile, Christian Bale bagged the Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy award at the 2019 Golden Globes for his role as former US Vice President Dick Cheney in ‘Vice’.
The 44-year-old earned his second ever Golden Globe honour for his uncanny portrayal of Cheney in Adam McKay’s political satire, which traces the politician’s rise to power.
While accepting his award, Bale said, “Aw, look at us, what a bunch of lucky buggers we are, to make a life out of doing something that we love. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of that for so many years.”
‘The Dark Knight’ star concluded the speech by thanking “Satan for giving me inspiration.”
The actor won his first Golden Globe award in 2011 for his role in ‘The Fighter’.
Bale beat out Lin-Manuel Miranda (Mary Poppins Returns), Viggo Mortensen (Green Book), Robert Redford (The Old Man & The Gun) and John C. Reilly (Stan & Ollie) to take home the trophy.
