Jaws dropped after actor Willem Dafoe announced that it was a tie for the coveted honor. Glenn and Gaga have been considered the frontrunners in this category all awards show season long.
He announced Glenn’s name first, and she happily ran to the stage to accept the trophy. She won in this category at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards last Sunday.
“I am so thrilled it’s a tie, I can’t tell you,” Glenn exclaimed. “I was thinking that, you know, the world kind of pits us against each other in this profession and I know that from all the women in this category, and I think I can speak for all the women in this room, we celebrate each other.”
