Actress Glenn Close threw some shade at Gwyneth Paltrow by implying the actress didn’t deserve to win her Oscar award in 1999.

Close claimed Fernanda Montenegro should have won Best Actress during a sit-down virtual interview with ABC News published Tuesday. Paltrow won the award for her role in “Shakespeare In Love.”

“I remember the year Gwyneth Paltrow won over that incredible actress who was in ‘Central Station,'” Close said, “and I thought, ‘What?’ It’s like, you know, it doesn’t make sense.”

It kind of doesn’t make sense.

In the year 1999, many believed that “Shakespeare In Love” also shouldn’t have won the Oscar for Best Picture. It was up against “Elizabeth,” “Saving Private Ryan,” “Life Is Beautiful” and “The Thin Red Line.” (RELATED: Gwyneth Paltrow Releases ‘This Smells Like My Orgasm’ Candle)

“Saving Private Ryan” didn’t win and it very much should have.

Paltrow isn’t really that great of an actress. She’s beautiful, that’s for sure. I just don’t think she brings that much to a movie. Paltrow is in all the “Iron Man” movies, and she’s great in them, but those aren’t Best Actress material.

“Shakespeare In Love” has been her only Oscars nomination and win.
