Glenn Close Has Idea to Make Award Shows More Fun: Seat All the Nominees Together

Glenn Close, Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominee, has an idea to make award shows as fun as she and Timothée Chalamet have on red carpets. On the Late Show, Close told Stephen Colbert she would only change one thing about awards shows: the seating chart. “The Golden Globes you sit at a table, the SAG Awards you sit at a table. I would like to sit at a table with my fellow nominees. That would be fun,” she suggested. The Golden Globes can be fun, she continued, “depends on who you’re sitting next to.” If Close has her way at the Oscars later this month, then she’ll be seated with fellow best actress nominees Lady Gaga (A Star Is Born), Olivia Colman (The Favourite), Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me?), and Yalitza Aparicio (Roma). Just imagine how amazing those GIFs would be.
