'Hillbilly Elegy' was largely panned by critics.

Glenn Close on Monday received an Academy Award nomination for her work in Hillbilly Elegy. She also received a Golden Raspberry (Razzie) Award nomination for the same role.

Close was nominated for best actress in a supporting role, along with Maria Bakalova in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Olivia Colman in The Father, Amanda Seyfried in Mank and Yuh-Jung Youn in Minari. Monday marked Close's eighth Oscar nomination. She has yet to win.

As far as the Razzies, the actress was nominated for worst supporting actress along with Lucy Hale and Maggie Q in Fantasy Island, Kristen Wiig in Wonder Woman 1984 and Maddie Ziegler in Music. 

In Hillbilly Elegy, Close plays Bonnie "Mamaw" Vance. The film is directed by Ron Howard, based on the 2016 memoir of the same name by J.D. Vance.

The Netflix film received three Razzie nominations: Worst director for Howard, worst screenplay for Vanessa Taylor, and worst supporting actress for Close. As far as Oscars, it was also nominated for best makeup and hairstyling.

Close was also nominated for a best supporting actress Golden Globe.

Hillbilly Elegy was largely panned by critics and holds a 25 percent on the aggregation site, Rotten Tomatoes.

The Oscar/Razzie situation is not unique; a number of actors and actresses have been nominated for both awards in the same year. However, not for the same role. In 2010, Sandra Bullock won the best actress Academy Award for her role in The Blind Side, and also received two Razzies for other films.

The 93rd Academy Awards are April 25.
