[Blind Gossip] The Oscars telecast last night may not have been the most upbeat, fun, or even entertaining show we’ve ever seen.
BUT… there were a couple of bright spots.
Let’s talk about one of them!
While many may be congratulating [actress] on her impromptu performance during the Academy Awards, it was not.
She was not being clever or “woke” on her own. The producers worked with her in advance on the bit. She was given lines and they did a very short rehearsal to block it. It was a cute bit, but that’s all it was.
“Blocking” is when you plan in advance how the performer will move on the set so the camera can get the best shot.
So was that actually a fun spontaneous moment? Not even close. It was scripted, staged, and even rehearsed.
Hey, even if our actress didn’t win, she wasn’t going to be ignored!

[Optional] What did you think of the show?
What was Glenn Close thinking? This may well have been the last Oscar nomination of her career and this is what she’s going to be remembered for? What a shame.
The actress being referred to is Glenn Close. The only spontaneous moment that has been replayed over and over again was her 30 second dance.
The reference to the actress not being ignored is a line from FATAL ATTRACTION.
Actress: Glenn Close. I knew when I was watching it that it was rehearsed and she was a really bad actress reciting the background of that song.
Clues: Not even close and she won’t be ignored.
Optional: No. I used to watch awards shows all the time. Now, I could care less. I thought they had already been given out, honestly.
Glenn’s moment may have been scripted, but she’s still aces in my book for being willing to play along. There are plenty actors half her age who would’ve refused. Good for her!
Glenn Close and that whatever she did.
Can’t really say anything about the show because I didn’t watch. Nobody else did either!
The Academy became dead to me when they refused to give Andy Serkis anything for his excellent work in multiple films (LOTR, but also Caesar in Planet of the Apes was amazing).
Glenn Close. Although I choose believe she cool and fun.
Clues: “Not even close” and “Hey, even if our actress didn’t win, she wasn’t going to be ignored!”
Glenn Close. “She wasn’t going to be ignored!” (Famous line from her film, Fatal Attraction)
I didn’t see most of the films nominated- only “Borat” “Trial of Chicago 7” “Black Judas” and “Hillbilly Elegy”, so didn’t think there was much of a point in watching. Apparently, most people felt the same way this year.
The line “I will not be ignored” is from her film Fatal Attraction.
That Glenn Close moment. Of course it was scripted, you could totally tell.
Glenn Close. I knew it!!! That little stunt looked staged from the beginning. So glad you wrote about this!
Clue: she wasn’t going to be ignored! (as in Fatal Attraction)
Hint: not even close.
Not seen a second of it.
Too easy. Glenn Close.
Don’t watch. Terrible cast of winners. As usual.
I didn’t even watch the show and I know this is Glenn Close and her ridiculous booty dance. 🙄 We’re done even pretending there is any professionalism in Hollywood anymore, huh? These people have zero shame. Not surprised it was set up. I don’t watch because that * is rigged and always has been. Every year it’s the same thing. Egos patting egos on the back and films winning that no average person has seen. I only watch awards where the audience that PAYS to see them vote.
Actress: Glenn Close doing “Da Butt”. Love her, but seriously? C’mon.
Clues: BUT…; “not going to be ignored” (from “Fatal Attraction”, of course)
Max Power says
Glen Close 100%, I thought at the time the lyrics were right in front of her. It was a fun moment but clearly planned and rehearsed in advance.
Glenn Close Da Butt Dance
Glenn Close will not be ignored
You couldn’t pay me to watch that WokeFest. Parade of Narcissists, Virtue Signaling , *.
To quote Ricky Gervais, “come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and then * off.”
The Glenn Close Twerk thing was in the news.
Glenn Close and her “da butt” dance
“not even close”
I have never watched the Oscars.
Nothing about that looked spontaneous. It was embarrassing.
Didn’t watch cause I haven’t seen any of the movies yet. But I’m so glad Frances Mc., won as well as Nomadland. I can’t wait to see it.
clue – Not even close, not “going to be ignored!”
Fatal Attraction clue.
Clue: Not even “Close” and “won’t be ignored” a line from Fatal Attraction.
Actress: Glenn Close, doing “Da Butt”
Clue: “Ignored”, Not even “Close”
Show was ok. Boring really. And we could do without political comments – entertainment isn’t entertainment when people all stand on soap boxes. I want to be distracted from life and entertained, not preached at. We are all capable of making our own decisions.
Glenn Close dancing.
Not even close = Glen Close’s last name.
Optnl: my ooinion? Wokeism has to go!
Clue: “Ignored “ line from Fatal Attraction
Actress: Glenn Close
Clues: ‘She won’t be IGNORED’–Line from Fatal Attraction. A movie that still freaks me out to this day. Only because I lived something very similar to this….ugh.
[Optional] What did you think of the show? Didn’t watch it. Don’t care. It’s all too political for many years. Booooringggg!!!!
Close? Glenn Close i would think..saw the pictures moving her behind, even the pic was boring
High Steppa says
Glenn Close (“I won’t be ignored, Dan!!”) It was obviously scripted. Wish she would have won.
Glenn Close shaking her butt…Pretty lame for such a Great Actress..She should have won the Oscar ……..
Glenn Close I was wondering how that could be spontaneous!
Glenn Close and “Da Butt”.
Show was underwhelming. Most attendees looked frumpy or cartoonish, and to whiz through the In Memorium segment at light speed was disrespectful.
She was nominated but didn’t win. She was talking about Da Butt, giving a shot out to the artists and saying it was an “f-ing tragedy” the song wasn’t nominated.
Glenn Close twerking.
Planned humor sucks. Dare to go impromptu with Glenn
“not even close”and she did not win…
Glenn Close doing Da Butt
Clue: won’t be ignored
Glenn Close “even though she didn’t win” 8 time nominee, no wins.
Scripted but she fooled me – I thought it looked real until I read about the “script” and the “blocking.” the next morning. Oh well, getting attention (in spite of her loss) – that’s what an actor lives for!!
Glenn Close shimmying to Da Butt
I didn’t watch the show.
Clues: “not even Close”
“ I will not be ignored”. Her line to M Douglas in Fatal Attraction
Just watched her in “The Natural” this past weekend. Great movie
Actress: Glenn Close and her “dance” that everyone and their mom is raving about on Twitter.
Clues: “not even close”—although, I’m sure there’s more haha
not even “close” !! glenn close knowing the name of that obscure song and twerking to it!
Glenn Close doing Da Butt!
Not winning for the eighth time.
I WON’T BE IGNORED DAN!
Glenn Close. So obvious! No way she was up on all that “School Daze” knowledge!!
Glenn Close. She looked an idiot doing that
I will not be ignored, Dan!
I didn’t watch it. I haven’t watched it in years.
Did not watch but I did read some reviews.
Glenn Close and her butt dance.
Diamond Girl says
Obviously Glenn Close and her “twerking”. She will not be “ignored”!
Glenn Close. It was cringe worthy watching her do “Da Butt.”
da butt Glenn Close
super sleuth says
Glenn Close twerking
Not even close; will not be ignored
I thought it looked cozy. I liked the little Oscar lamps on the tables.
Read about Glenn Close dancing to some song. Haven’t watched the show for years. Too political, long and not funny.
I have no idea because I didn’t watch it. I heard the ratings were in the tank, so I guess it’s true. You go woke, you go broke.
Clue: She wasn’t going to be ignored. From her movie Fatal Attraction.
One of the most boring Oscars ever. The intros & speeches were way too long.
Glenn Close. Nominated eight times for an Oscar, but never won one. Her whole schtick last night with “Da Butt” was rehearsed, blocked, etc.
Glenn Close. Did not watch the Oscars but I saw her ass-shaking bit on the news.
Clue tells me it must be Glenn Close (Fatal attraction quote)
Line is from Fatal Attraction.
Didnt watch the show, saw some clips.
Old is desperate
Actress: Glenn Close
Clues: “not even close”, “not going to be ignored”
[Optional] What did you think of the show?
rather boring, I finally gave up and went to bed before the last 3 biggest awards were given out
Optional: didn’t watch, never do
Clues: “close”, “ignored” from Fatal Attraction.
I think this is Glenn Close.
My husband said there was no way she knew all of that about the Butt song. My husband said it was one of his favorite songs and he didn’t know all of that.
It was a funny moment though – and she played it well.
Clue. I will not be ignored from Fatal Attraction
Oscar highlights only this morning
That painful to watch bit with Glenn Close?
The whole show was show bad it made me look forward to the “in Memoriam” segment!
Glen Close. “I’m not going to be ignored.”-Clue from that adultery movie with Michael Douglas.
