The famed songwriter lost her 12th nomination at the 93rd Academy Awards on Sunday, making her the most-nominated woman in the history of the Oscars to never win. "OK so I lost again but U know what was the hugest win?? Feeling more love and support than I have ever felt in my life," Warren wrote on Facebook. "Thank U everyone in my movie music community who voted for this song, U are the best of the best and whenever U choose a song of mine it is huge huge honour that I don't take lightly and that I am deeply grateful for.

Glenn said: "There's certain characters that I've played like Cruella ... that when you're in the full drag there she is."
Meanwhile, Close also discussed playing Norma Desmond in Andrew Lloyd Webber's long-awaited film adaptation of 'Sunset Boulevard' having starred in the Broadway production as the same character.
She told Variety: "We're ready to go. We're very, very close.
"I feel passionate about it. I feel if I could just bring her home to the movies, I don't give a s*** what I do for the rest of my life. I'll play grandmothers until I die."
Disney has resurrected the Cruella de Vil character in upcoming prequel film 'Cruella' in which Emma Stone plays the dognapper as a younger woman.
The movie - which also stars Emma Thompson, Joel Fry, Paul Walter Hauser, Emily Beecham, Kirby Howell-Baptiste and Mark Strong - will be available to stream on Disney+ from May 28, 2021.
