    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.

The Queen's Gambit is a story about addiction, repression of pain, personal escape routes, and chess, as well as an attempt to portray the high price many talented artists and famous individuals pay for their accomplishments. It has it all: challenges, triumphs, setbacks, intense battles, friendships, success, emotions, and superb acting. Taylor-Joy totally swallowed the scenery around her as she embodied the multifaceted…
