    I guess the closest should be 1981 The French Lieutenant’s Woman (she won Golden Globe and BAFTA) or 2008 Doubt (won SAG and CC) if Winslet was nominated for supporting

    I think French Liuetant’s Woman was her closest, I think she was second for Doubt, but probably not a very close second since it was Winslet’s time after all.  Same with 09 too.

    Anybody alive in 83  could tell me how much of a factor Streep was that year for Silkwood? I know many say it was a race between Winger and Maclaine, but I wonder if Streep had any chance of winning.

    1983 was really no race at all. MacLaine was the overwhelming front runner from the day the picture came out.  She really was universally acclaimed plus it was her 5th nomination without a win over a 25 year period.(and she had had two close calls with The Apartment and The Turning Point where people thought she might win) It was hers. Nobody else stood a chance. (Streep especially was out of the race since she had just won the year before and already had two Oscars total in what then was only a six year film career.)

    1978 — third behind winner Maggie Smith and Stapleton, could have been second given the film’s best picture win and her NSFC win
    1981 — second behind Hepburn
    1983 — third (deserved to win for this particular performance)
    1985 — second or third (they loved the film and she had LAFCA)
    1987 — fourth or fifth
    1988 — third
    1990 — fifth
    1995 — third
    1998 — fifth
    1999 — fifth
    2002 — second
    2006 — second
    2008 — second
    2009 — second
    2013 — fourth
    2014 — third

    I believe she was really close with:
    The French Lieutenant’s Woman
    Out of Africa
    Adaptation
    Julie & Julia

    I’d say 1985 she was third. (that year was really Geraldine Page vs. Whoopi Goldberg)

    1988 she was probably 4th. That year was Foster vs. Close but some were predicting Melanie Griffith for some odd reason.

    I am curious that if she did win for the French Lieutenant’s Woman, will she win for Sophie’s Choice given the strong competition from Jessica Lange (Frances)?

    A BIG YES as Streep in Sophie’s Choice is mostly considered as the Best Female Performance of All Time.

    Streep should have tied Hepburn’s record by then and could have been broken by now.

    Three oscars in four years is really crazy!
    I really think Hepburn’s win for On Golden Pond is a career achievement oscar. I hope they will give Streep the fourth oscar to tie the record

    AMEN but merely tying the record is still a disservice to Streep. 

    Five (5) Oscar Best Actress WINS should be the New Goal Post to dispel any notion that Hepburn is at par with Streep.

    Only the Oscar Accountants-Tabulators can ascertain, so I’d like to think 2nd or 3rd for both A:OC & ITW.

    Guess Streep a tailender in Music from the Heart, Ironweed and Postcards from the Edge (the only nomination she did not attend as she’s about to give birth).
