Meryl Monday: The Iron Lady
And the nominees for Best Actress are…
Meryl Streep. Meryl Streep. Meryl Streep. And Meryl Streep.
Let’s face it. When you think of Meryl, you think of the Oscars. The two are synonymous, however, many people forget that Meryl has only won two times. She holds a record 16 nominations but the last time she won was in 1982 for Sophie’s Choice. That was 29 years ago! Like any actor, Meryl has done her share of “mediocre” roles but for the past few years she has been delivering remarkable performances (Doubt, Julie & Julia, The Devil Wears Prada). And I think it is time she receives the golden statute. Is there any reason she should not win this year? The UK trailer alone for her new film, The Iron Lady, is proof that this is her year. She plays a historical figure, physically changes her appearance, and performs with an accent. The role fits the criteria for the Oscar, however, there are always surprises at the star studded event. All I know is that I will be at home watching the Oscars rooting for Meryl.
Do you think Meryl Streep will take home the Oscar this year?
On a different note, the scene in which Meryl glides in the hallway like a vampire reminds me of Gary Oldman in Dracula. Do you see the resemblance?
The Iron Lady premieres in the United States on January 13, 2012.
