    I have been pondering since March whether or not Streep is going to be such a fixture with the Academy as she has been previously.. I think its eother going to be really easy for her to win her fourth or she will very seldomly get the usual nominations now.

    ^ I agree. I think now that she has made her history, and finally won her third, they are either going to continue to nominate her until she wins her 4th, and makes history, or she will only be nominated for the truly great performances that she gives.

    It’s an extremely weak year for Best Leading Actresses. She’s in.

    I doubt they just nominate her for the sake of nominating her anymore. Just doesn’t make sense.

    She won’t be nominated for this. But she’s a lock for the Comedy Globe. 

    And is this the year when she finally gives an award to someone and not just present the In Memoriam video. Or she won’t be there because she doesn’t like presenting awards to people? I always wondered why she never did after she won.

    The banana scene should be her Oscar clip!
    And the article also says that Tommy Lee Jones should be nominated. I’m very happy for him. He also has Lincoln coming up, so he will definitely be in the voters’ radar.

    *lol*
    So in short it might mean the Academy will continue the way with her they alread do. Good to know.

    No, in all honesty (and for her own sake) I don’t think she will be nominated for Hope Springs. The year is open for actresses (not really weak at all), because outside Helen Hunt (who still is an Oscar winner), there are no other big names. Yet.
    Of course Meryl will forever be connected with Oscar (forth statuette or not, she surpassed already Hepburn’s nomination record-no actress will ever break that as long as Meryl lives and who would really want that anyway?), but since she will be at the next year’s ceremony to present best actor (well, hopefully she does…. she’s never done that before), there’s no need for a “filler” nom.
    Golden Globes seems VERY likely, since she’s going to present there and was even nominated for films like “Mamma Mia!” and “It’s Complicated”.
    Though I hope the words about Tommy Lee Jones come true. I had a good feeling watching him in the trailer.

    She will not be nominated for Hope Spring. The Comedy Globe nomination is a lock (not sure if she’ll win), but the Oscar nomination won’t come until 2014 with the film adaptadion of August: Osage County. Now that role has Oscar written all over.

    I won’t be that sure of her Not getting a nomination for this. Sure, she won’t win for such a film, but not getting nominated? All the other ‘frontrunners’ do seem to have one obstacle or the other in their ways, which makes it all the more easier for Streep to get into the top 5. Bear with my handicapping of all the contenders. Mullligan may go supporting. Judging from the trailers Davis and Linney don’t seem to be happening. Knightley could be as devisive as she was last year, then there are two past winners Hunt and Cottilard, the latter in a foreign langauage film again. They won’t go for Jennifer Lawrence in Hunger Games, and her other role looks supporting. And surely they will be a little hesitant to nominate the six year old from Beasts of the Southern Wild. Plus there’s always this one much acclaimed performance that gets snubbed. What else? I’m not saying they don’t have a chance to get nominated, just that there are obstacles for each, although Streep herself probably has the biggest obstace; the fact that she won a year ago. But if the reviews are good enough, and the movie is a hit, I say she’s in.

    Well, I was sure she’d NEVER win for TIL and I was wrong, so that’s that. *gg*

    Though, in all of her comedies she was nominated for, she played a real person (Julia Child) or a character who was visibly based on a real person (Carrie Fisher, Anna Wintour).
    Never for pure fiction.

    But well, who really knows?
    I’d love to be prooven wrong again, but I think she has practically sealed the 18th nom with A:OC (though it’s not even filmed yet).

    The article you posted from the Village Voice is dubious at best. It’s not a review, and the “early word” is coming from a “spy.”

    I like a number of Streep performances (she’s fantastic in Bridges, Evil Angels, Manhattan, and some other things), but the fan reaction to her is not unlike fanboys for superhero movies; it makes me welcome her retirement.

    Nobody knows anything yet, either about the Oscar-baitedness of this performance or what the competition will look like. Ridiculously early still.

    I agree with  SF and I also stand by my prediction that no matter
    the competition being strong or weak..and the reviews of
    her performance..Meryl Streep will get a year off from
    being nominated…She will present the Best Actor Award
    and return in 2014 as a nominee for AUGUST OSAGE COUNTY..

    She hardly makes her presence at the Awards unless its absolutely necessary. She didn’t present supporting actor or lead actor the following years she won. So I don’t see her showing up to next years Oscars, if shes not nominated.

    Not to mention, how does everybody know its a weak year in Best Actress? All the contenders usually come around at the end of the year. This film looks to light for Oscar attention. Though I guess its not that far reached since the film looks similar to Diane Keaton’s last film that got her nominated.
