Why Glenn Close should have won an Oscar for her brilliant turn as Cruella De Vil:
You may forget what happened in this film, but there is one thing you will never forget: Glenn Close's performance. Close uses a menacing laugh, over-the-top line delivery, and a fiery demeanor to bring Cruella's genuine, cruel nature to life in a dramatically subversive way. Her ferocity in front of the camera makes her character obtrusive, self-absorbed, arrogant, delightfully nasty, and yet incredibly hilarious at the same time. She achingly conveys her portrayal with a simmering rage while simultaneously spinning comedic gold into her role, allowing her to become the terrifying fashion icon that is Cruella De Vil.
