Two Choate Rosemary Hall alumni shared the spotlight once again on Sunday night, taking home awards at the 76th annual Golden Globes.
Michael Douglas C'63 won Best Actor in a TV Series - Musical or Comedy, for his role as Sandy Komisky in the Netflix series The Komisky Method. During his acceptance speech, Douglas thanked his father, 102-year-old Kirk Douglas.
Later in the evening, a stunned Glenn Close RH'65 took a moment to a gather herself after hearing her name called for the award of Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama for her role as Joan Castleman in The Wife. The crowd was brought to their feet in a standing ovation for Close as she accepted her award by saying, "Women, we're nurturers, that's what's expected of us. We have our children. We have our husbands, if we're lucky enough, and our partners, whoever. But we have to find personal fulfillment. We have to follow our dreams. We have to do that, and we have to say, 'I should be allowed to do that.'"
Douglas and Close, who famously co-starred in Fatal Attraction in 1987, shared a moment of congratulations as Close walked up to accept her award.
