    Love her performance and she will be nominated but she has no shot at winning.

    Lol!!!

    Well, the skies would part, & people will cry and/or pull their hair out in big junks. One thing’s for sure; GD would implode, with 57 pages and 7 re-started threads.
    This has actually happened…if memory serves…but I don’t think she has a shot this year nor do I believe a nomination is assures. She could miss this year.

    I love Meryl so I hope I am wrong.

    The critics’ awards are going to go to Natalie Portman and Isabelle Huppert.

    The Golden Globes are going to go to Natalie Portman and Emma Stone. They are also in films destined to be best picture nominees.

    Meryl Streep will win no critics’ awards and while she is likely to be a Golden Globe nominee, she is not winning over Emma Stone. Her film may be a comedy-musical Golden Globe nominee but that is not certain.

    She has no clear path to Oscar. She may not even have the clearest path to a nomination as her film was not very popular and came out a while ago.

    Natalie Portman winning for the performance of her life, possibly the best performance of the year or maybe the best performance in years makes sense. Emma Stone winning for the best picture winner, especially if it sweeps, also makes sense. Meryl Streep winning over that kind of competition for a decent but not great film does not make sense. Even Oscarless Annette Bening winning for what may be her best performance makes more sense than Meryl Streep taking her fourth Oscar for “Florence Foster Jenkins”.

    Ah, needed a laugh after today.

    Thanks for that.

    She ain’t getting nominated either, let alone winning.

    I will say this; I loved Florence more than some of the contenders. I hope it miraculously gets a Best Picture nomination. The most I think it gets is five; Picture, Actress, Supporting Actor, Screenplay, and Costume.

    I found “Florence Foster Jenkins” decent at best. It went annoyingly back and forth between arch drawing room comedy and a more serious bio. The performances were likewise all over the map. Hugh Grant, the best performance in the film, on the more realistic end while Simon Helberg was a complete cartoon and Meryl Streep was somewhere in between. I found Hugh Grant trying to manage his double life far more interesting than the drama surrounding Meryl Streep’s voice. I was not a big fan of the French film “Marguerite”, based on the life Florence Foster Jenkins, but at least it had me convinced that the rather wispy material was worthy of a full length motion picture.

    I would rather she not be nominated. Anybody who is in line to replace her is likely in a better film than “Florence Foster Jenkins”. I don’t feel any great need to rack up Streep’s nomination count over such a mediocre picture.

    Which is why it’s called Best Actress and not Best Picture. I feel she deserves a nomination and I feel confident that she gets it. The ones who said she wouldn’t get the nominations for August or Into the Woods were wrong all the way lmfao so I feel right on this one.

    I don’t know anyone who fought the fact that she would be nominated for “Into the Woods” and most seemed to realize she would be nominated for “August”. I had her in my personal predictions for both. There was a nutty Streep fan on this site who kept arguing she was going to win for both those films and many people fought with him on the issue, but few thought she would go without a nomination.

    I adore Streep but she doesn’t have the slightest prayer in the world of winning this year. Even Streep die-hards will be voting for Stone, Portman and Bening.

    No, I saw people taking Streep out of their predictions for both films whether it was by spite or because they actually thought she would miss. Both of those movies had less praise than Florence though their box office was better and they released in December. And you’re talking about Etchie. Lmfao, love him.
