Fort Worth and Dallas real estate moola has helped Glenn Close achieve the dream of her lifetime: Albert Nobbs, an independent film that was heavily financed by Crescent Real Estate Equities CEO John Goff and his darling wife, Cami, is in line for some Oscar gold after it was nominated for three Academy Awards this morning!  The star, writer and producer Glenn Close was nominated for Best Actress, her co-star Janet McTeer was nominated for Best Supporting Actress. The film was also nominated for Best Makeup, which it should win hands-down for turning the beautiful Glenn into a man! Remember when Glenn came to Dallas in October 2010 seeking funding for this film at the home of John and Teresa Amend. She told me then she knew it would be the performance of a lifetime.  You MUST go see the film this weekend when it opens in Fort Worth-Dallas, and let me know what you think!

Note I say Fort Worth Dallas, which I’ve had to re-type a few times. That is because the photo you see here was taken in Fort Worth when we previewed Albert Nobbs. That’s my husband with Glenn, who is married to his cousin David. As usual, I put my foot in my mouth when I was standing behind a lovely woman and I said, “the mayor of Fort Worth should be here”. The woman turned to me and said, “I am the Mayor of Fort Worth, Betsy Price. How are ya?”
