Star of the critically-acclaimed upcoming film based on the life of cross-dressing  butler Albert Nobbs, Glenn Close, will be honored with the Hollywood Career Achievement Award at the 15th annual Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Film Awards, presented by Starz on October 24, in Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 64-year-old multiple Oscar nominee is already creating buzz in her gender-bending performance as Albert Nobbs, a film Close co-produced. The actress, who became a household name in the 80’s starring in films including The Big Chill, The World According to Garp and most famously as the obsessed other woman in Fatal Attraction, also executive produced and starred  in the 1995 television movie Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story, based on the life of the highest-ranking military member to be discharged for being a lesbian.

Close has also graced the small screen with a tour de force performance as the take-no-prisoners attorney Patty Hewes on Damages, for which she earned two Emmys.

Last month Close picked up a Lifetime Achievement Award at the San Sebastian Film Festival in Spain, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
