    Well, with A Cry in the Dark and Sophie’s Choice, Meryl made those two films iconic. She wins the “filmography” choice for me.

     

    But I voted for Lange. Anyone, who can fill the shoes of the iconic Fay Wray the way Jessica does gets my vote, filmography or otherwise.

    Meryl Streep. A true chameleon.

    Streep has Adaptation. Which is one of the best movies ever made. However Lange is more entertaining to watch in whatever movie she happens to be in. She gets my vote.

    Sophie’s Choice. The Bridges of Madison County. The Hours. Clearly, it’s Streep. One film role of hers overshadows most actresses work.

    I sympathise Lange as she is really one of the greats, but c’mon. Meryl Streep’s filmography is incomparable.

    Judging purely on quality of the filmography, it’s Meryl by many miles.

    “Her Body of Work is Unrivaled” — Nicole Kidman Testimonial,  2004 AFI Lifetime Achievement Award for Meryl Streep.
    ***
    That was ten (10) years ago.  More happened since.

    STREEP’s body of work as an actress IS unrivaled by
    any other actress in 35 years time…Some of her films are iconic
    and although lange is a great actress, unfortunately because of
    STREEP,  she has not been given the cream of the crop in parts and
    films…MERYL  got them all…For me, only TOOTSIE is a film that
    Lange can list as iconic…but her small part in it pales to HOFFMAN’s
    work, so it isnt really “her” film..Although she was given an oscar
    for it..
    Filmographys alone, STREEP by miles.

    My suggestion for the next filmography comparison: Bates vs Huston.

    This contest was strictly popularity. I feel like only a handful of us has seen most of Lange’s filmography. While Streep never stopped working—because there was always a demand for her even when she was no longer hot relatively speaking for the best possible projects.

    It’s hard, for me, to not view each season of AHS at a movie, and at that, wonder how a movie would have panned out for a particular season (as it would have set barriers for Murphy to EDIT).  As I said in another post, if you’re comparing the all around notion, then Streep’s comedic work catapults her in the lead.  Had Lange chosen to continuously work, and not be as picky (early on), then she very well could have worked at much at Streep, b/c god knows she had the looks, but I think that choice to not pick every project sent to her was one of Lange’s quirks, which may or may not have bitten her in the ass come mid 90s.  In fact, I showed my friend “Cape Fear” last night, then when it was over, I stated that Lewis got the nomination over Lange, and she stared at me with the most insane look I’d ever seen … though in all honesty, this was the first time I personally viewed JL’s performance, without hatred in my heart (hah), and I really did see how she could have garnered the nom, though they were both deserving, but that story deserves it’s own other thread entirely!

     

    – In short, I (and most people) are over the moon about Lange’s recent success, in the limelight, now let’s just get her a GD good script besides 4 scenes in “The Gambler” (which I’m sure were fantastic) and get her that 3rd Oscar!!!!
