    With Hope Springs(8/2012) coming up and August:Osage County(2013), Streep could be in contention again for a nomination….possibly an Oscar for the latter. With that, I thought is would be fun to get everyone’s thought on where Streep finished during all her nominations. As we will never know for sure, bases on buzz at the time and pre-cursrors, we can all guess.

    1978-DEER HUNTER- 3rd being Smith and Stapelton
    1979-KRAMER vs KRAMER-winner
    1981-FRENCH LIEUTENANT’S WOMAN-2nd to Hepburn
    1982- SOPHIES CHOICE-winner
    1983-SILKWOOD-3rd behind McLaine, Winger
    1985-OUT OF AFRICA-3rd behind Page, Goldberg
    1987-IRONWEED-5th
    1988-A CRY IN THE DARK-3rd behind Foster and Close
    1990-POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE-5th
    1995-BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY-3rd behind Sarandon and Shue
    1998-ONE TRUE THING-4th behind Paltrow and Blanchett and Watson(maybe)
    1999-MUSIC OF THE HEART-5th behind Swank, Bening, McTeer and Moore(maybe Moore was 5th)
    2002-ADAPTATION-2nd behind Zeta-Jones
    2006-DEVIL WEARS PRADA-3rd behind Mirren and Dench
    2008-DOUBT-2nd behind Winslet
    2009-JULIE & JULIA-2nd behind Bullock
    2011-IRON LADY-winner

    I agree with most of those rankings but 5th for Ironweed and Postcards?

    Please, Julia Roberts was the one lucky to get in 1990 for a panned film.

    Meryl was excellent in the criminally underrated, little-seen IRONWEED, which is one of my favorites of her performances. What a heartbreaking movie…

    THE DEER HUNTER – 3rd
    KRAMER VS KRAMER – Winner
    FRENCH LT’s WOMAN- 2nd
    SOPHIE’S CHOICE – Winner
    SILKWOOD – 3rd
    OUT OF AFRICA – 3rd
    IRONWEED – 4th
    A CRY IN THE DARK – 4th (I still think Weaver was 3rd, Close 2nd)
    POSTCARDS – 5th
    BRIDGES – 4th (Shue was 3rd, Stone was second, that Drama Globe win and her ‘hot’ factor helped a lot; remember, Streep wasn’t a Popular topic in the 90s like she is now)
    ONE TRUE THING – 4th (Behind Fernanda, Blanchett, Paltrow)
    MUSIC OF THE HEART – 5th
    ADAPTATION – 2nd
    THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA – 2nd
    DOUBT – 2nd
    JULIE & JULIA – 2nd
    IRON LADY – Winner (finally)

    One can only guess how close Meryl really was of her lasting 14 nominations. Official she seemed to be 2nd at her last nominations since 2003 (*lol* yes, she was official 2nd for TIL before her win this year, no? Always the same).
    Inofficial I think she might (except for 2003 and 2006-Mirren had absolutely no competion that year anyway) only be third, even when the media made the battle of “Meryl vs. Kate” and “Meryl vs. Sandra”, but of course I have no proof of this.
    I also think that Michelle Williams was more close to Meryl than Viola, SAG or not.
    But well, whatever.

    I’m glad this whole circus finally done. Meryl had unbelievable massive international attention this time and I was regretting that she might would never get this again. It seemed to work this time.
    The pressure is gone. I don’t care if she ever wins a fourth or not, in leading or supporting.
    I’m looking even more foward than usual to her films now, because they won’t have automatically the “O” word connected (well except August:Osage County) with them. At least I hope so.

    I still think that she should have won in 1995 for bridges.

    I’m pretty sure Julianne Moore was 2nd in 2002. Apart from the Globe win, there was really no indication Meryl was second. Moore was a double nominee who was apparently out of the lead race by the time televised awards roled in, she was in a Best Picture nominee, and as I recall had an unsuccssful last minute surge. Also, Meryl was never gonna win her third for Supporting.

    Moore had no business being nominated in that category in the first place. If Kidman was in lead, and Streep was campaigned for lead than Moore should’ve been lead. All 3 ladies had pretty equal screentime.

    ^ I won’t argue that. But it doesn’t mean she wasn’t competitive in the category.

    Moore was third in the supporting category. I’m sure she was second in lead, even before Zellweger.
    With that fourth Globe win after exactly 20 years, Meryl was undoubtable second that year.
    Moore had more buzz for Far from Heaven than The Hours. But yeah, ALL of the three were defintely leading in that movie.

    LOL, Nues, your ava!
