Glenn Close will be honored next month by the Hollywood Reporter when they unveil their annual 100 most powerful women in entertainment list.

Glenn will be receiving the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award on December 5th. The award is named after Sherry, who is the former CEO of Paramount Pictures, the first woman to head a major movie studio, and celebrates Hollywood’s most successful actresses.

Close has earned five Oscar nominations throughout her 33 year career, as well as garnering two Golden Globe awards, two Emmys and three Tony Awards for her theatre and musical roles.

The Hollywood Reporter’s editor Elizabeth Guide, says, "It’s the amazing performances she’s had of late on cable, which has brought her back in the public consciousness, and the fact she’s been active in community fundraising and a real industry leader." Former winners of the honor include Jodie Foster, Meryl Streep and Barbara Walters.
