    Great topic, Vincelette! I’m a huge fan of Nancy Meyers as a writer and director.

    For me, this comes down to Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep. Meyers has brought out tremendous performances from these two veterans and Something’s Gotta Give and It’s Complicated are both great films.

    By a narrow margin, I think I’d give this to Diane Keaton. An incredibly deserving Oscar-nominated performance (and it’s a minor miracle that the Academy acknowledged such a comedic performance, too.)

    Formerly known in the forums as PianoMann.

    On the same page as PianoMann, though I give the slight edge to Streep, who was so wonderful, funny and underrated in “It’s Complicated.” Hunt was actually quite splendid too…I think I may prefer her in “What Women Want” over her Oscar-winning turn in “As Good As It Gets.”

    Vince, you look like a completely different person now after your haircut, ahem, I mean that avatar change. People might have taken you for a different poster.
    For me, you’re much more sufferable right now, because I freakin love Miss Oh. I don’t think I will ever be able to argue with you about anything from now on 🙁

    I think it’s because she merely ‘wrote’ this film and didnt direct.

    This is my favorite of hers as well. Mostly because of Diane; but it was topical then, and man, can I EVER relate to her character…..

    A proper fangirl would have chosen their favorite actress but you guys know how unbiased I am so no Cammy D for me. I have to choose between Diane and Lindsay, and I have decided to choose LiLo. She was so charming, so natural, so fresh, so great!

    Goldie Hawn in “Private Benjamin” and Shelley Long (and Drew Barrymore, for that matter) in “Irreconciable Differences” are fantastic too.

    Ya she’s terrific. She had some stiff comparisons to squelch and she did just fine.
