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
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

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.April 6, 2012 at 11:31 am #57440
Meryl was excellent in the criminally underrated, little-seen IRONWEED, which is one of my favorites of her performances. What a heartbreaking movie…April 6, 2012 at 11:50 am #57441
First Image from Meryl Streep’s new film “Great Hope Springs”April 6, 2012 at 9:48 pm #57442

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)

MUSIC OF THE HEART – 5th
ADAPTATION – 2nd
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA – 2nd

The Deer Hunter-3rd
Kramer vs. Kramer- Won
French LT’s Woman- 2nd
Sophie’s Choice- Won
A Cry In The Dark- 3rd
Postcards From The Edge- 5th (Yeah Pretty Woman wasn’t exactly a critical favorite, but Roberts still had the young it girl factor that probably put her ahead of Meryl)
Bridges of Madison County -4th ( Stone and Shue were probably both ahead of her)
One True Thing- 4th
Music of The Heart- 5th
The Devil Wears Prada- Either 2nd or 3rd, toss up really
Julia Child Impression- 2nd
Margaret Thatcher Impression- WonApril 7, 2012 at 10:40 am #57444
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.April 7, 2012 at 11:18 am #57445
I still think that she should have won in 1995 for bridges.April 9, 2012 at 12:40 pm #57446
I LOVE MERYL STREEP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!April 9, 2012 at 8:20 pm #57447
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.April 9, 2012 at 8:24 pm #57448
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.April 9, 2012 at 8:26 pm #57449
^ I won’t argue that. But it doesn’t mean she wasn’t competitive in the category.April 10, 2012 at 4:29 am #57450
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!
