Oscar flashback: That time Glenn Close hilariously mangled the announcement of Halle Berry’s historic win [Watch]

Glenn Close looks solid to finally win her first Oscar on Sunday, for Best Actress for “The Wife.” But the seven-time nominee is associated with another Best Actress win — and a pretty big one at that — though you might not realize it at first.

In 2002, Close and Donald Sutherland were tapped to be the Voices of Oscar for the 74th ceremony, which was just a fancy way of saying they were the announcers. So instead of getting a regular announcer or voiceover artist — Randy Thomas, the first woman to announce the Oscars, is returning for her 10th stint this weekend — to read ad break teases, presenter introductions and a winner’s Oscar history, the academy went with a then-five-time nominee and someone who still has yet to be nominated.
