She is nominated for Best Actress this evening for her work in The Wife. It’s the seventh nomination for the 71-year-old actress and she has yet to win at the Oscars. Glenn is currently the most-nominated actor without a win!

Glenn donned a custom hand-embroidered gown from Carolina Herrera that weighs 42lbs. Designed by the brand’s creative director, Wes Gordon, it features almost four million glass bugle beads applied to an inner gown corset.
