Video! Glenn Close Has Trouble Opening a Box of Chocolates

To celebrate her Oscar nomination, "Extra" gave Glenn Close a big box of chocolates, which she had a difficult time opening.

Close even enlisted the help of actor Henry Winkler, who said, "I'll hold, you open it." After many tries, she finally opened the box of sweets, and thanked "Extra" for the thoughtful present. Winkler quipped, "You, too, can have a box of chocolates that takes a month to open."


For her riveting performance as a man in "Albert Nobbs," Close was honored with a Best Actress nod. It is her sixth Oscar nomination.

Close noted her fierce competition for the prize, saying, "It's an incredibly strong year for women. It's just so thrilling to be in the company of these other women -- and cross-generational, which is great."
