Glenn Close was awarded the Golden Globe for Best Actress in the dramatic category for her role in The Good Wife and thanked her for a feminist discourse.
The actor remembered her mother, that her entire life was held in her father's shadow, and played a role as a wife very similar to the one who closed herself in the movie she has won the Globe: The good wife, where she does by Joan, the wife of a successful author, named Joe Castleman-Jonathan Pryce.
For forty years Joan sacrifices her dreams and ambitions to keep her husband's reputation alive. But on the eve of the Nobel Literature Prize for Joe, Joan decides to uncover a secret that can change everything.

"By interpreting such an introspective character, I think of my mother that her entire life was held in her father's shadow. At 80, he told me," I feel I haven't accomplished anything in life. "It was terrible … she gave my father all my life, "he said.
"I think what I have learned from all this experience is that, women: we are caregivers, and that's what is expected of us. We have our children, our husbands and, if we are lucky, our parents. But we must find what makes us feel fulfilled, we must follow our dreams and say, "I can do it, and I have the right to do it!" He replied.
And she talked about her personal experience: "When I was a kid, I felt like Muhammad Ali, who said he was willing to be a boxer. I felt determined to be an actress. I looked at the first Disney I saw Hayley Mills and she said, "I can do it!" And here I am. In September I am 45 years old as an actress, and I can't imagine having a more wonderful life. "
