After working on the stage, Glenda started working in films. Glenda Jackson won the Best Actress Oscar for her work in the 1969 Ken Russell film adaptation of the D.H. Lawrence novel, WOMEN IN LOVE, with Alan Bates and Oliver Reed.

Glenda Jackson, who did not appear at the Academy Awards either time she won an Oscar quipped of her Oscars "My mother polishes them to within an inch of their lives until the metal shows. That sums up the Academy Awards - all glitter on the outside and base metal coming through. Nice presents for a day. But they don't make you any better."
