Close was on ABC News' "Popcorn with Peter Travers" to promote her new Netflix film, "Hillbilly Elegy", when she shared her distaste for awards on the grounds that she can't justify comparing artists' works.

Gwyneth picked up the 1999 Best Actress award for her role as Viola de Lesseps, William Shakespeare's fictional lover, in the romantic period comedy-drama film but Glenn believes 'Central Station's Fernanda Montenegro should have won.

I have to be philosophical. I'm so proud of the times when my colleagues felt that my performance was noteworthy.

She was referencing Brazilian actress Fernanda Montenegro, who was nominated alongside Close, Paltrow, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep and Emily Watson in 1999. And Paltrow, who was 26 at the time, thanked them all during her acceptance speech.

"I don't feel very deserving of this in your presence", Paltrow said at the time.

Paltrow's casting in the lead role of Shakespeare in Love as well as the Oscar she got for it, has always been a bit of a controversial subject as many questions were risen over it. I mean, that would be ironic, but that's what life does, right? The same was true in 1998 when "Shakespeare In Love' won Best Picture the same year as 'Saving Private Ryan'".
