     Poll TEN: Daniel Day-Lewis Vs. Meryl Streep

    As this is the tenth edition of this poll, I thought I would do something different, and ask who of these three time champs is most likely to win a fourth first?

    Streep has won 3 – 1 Supporting for Kramer Vs. Kramer, and 2 Leading, for Sophie’s Choice & The Iron Lady. She has the record tally of nominations, with 19.

    Day-Lewis has 3 Leading Oscars, for My Left Foot, There Will Be Blood, and Lincoln. Day-Lewis has 5 career nominations in total. 

    According to Wikipedia (old reliable one), Day-Lewis currently has no publicised projects he is working on.
    Streep has Ricki & The Flash, Suffragette and Florence Foster Jenkins to be released in the next year or two.

    But, which of these two Oscar icons will win their FOURTH Oscar first?

    Day-Lewis will not beat Streep nor Nicholson (Jack) to a fourth Oscar win.

    Meryl Streep. She works more often than DDL does.

    It’s hard to pick Day Lewis, not knowing when his next movie will be. Whenever it is though, he will be an instant frontrunner. That is just a credit to how selective he is of his roles. It’s been a longer than usual gap though. The last time he’s waited longer than three years between films, it led to Gangs of New York. I did go with Day Lewis in the end, because Meryl will be nominated a few times in the next little while, but her fourth will be for something that stands head and shoulders above the rest of her work.

    It will not. The Iron Lady proves that a narrative and a campaign is what Streep needs to expand her win record. She does not have one right now. And no matter the quality of the performance someone else in her category will look more appealing for the win.

    I will shoot myself in a head if DDL will win another Oscar. He was exactly in like 10 movies? And he’s not that brilliant either. He’s the most overrated actor on the planet. His “Lincoln” win over Phoenix is pathetic.

    Go go Streep! At least she’s deserving of many more Oscars!!!

    Yes, but whom do you go to when you need a jar opened?

    I dont think he’s “over-rated” but I hope you’re right. The wage disparity and all…….

    He has 3 Oscars…he’s pretty overrated. The first two were okay. But for “Lincoln”? Decent film, and he was good, but an Oscar????? And we have still Oscar-less Phoenix, Dicaprio, Bening, Close, Pfeiffer, Weaver, Lansbury and so on.

    Once they give you that honorary statuette the least likely anyone cares to match it with a competitive one.

    Yeah but the standards will be higher if you’re already a 3x Oscar winner. To win a third is different from winning a fourth.

    If one pays close attention to those who are multiple Oscar winners for acting there are three distinct groups. Those who earned their two wins (rare), those who earned one of their two wins (common), and those who are popular enough to receive the reverential three or more (legacy).

    The third was her career Oscar. It was a reward for having almost two decades without a win. She earned her first two for those performances, but she got the third because she is who she is. A phenomenal actress who is beloved by the academy. But now a fourth would bring her level with Hepburn. Are they ready to give her that distinction? For the narrative, she needs a lead performance that everyone is talking about. Because when she won in 2011, there was an overall sentiment that she was overdue, which has now developed into an overall sense that she’s somehow been over rewarded. She needs to remind the voters how amazing she can really be. She was my personal choice in SA last year, but the voters didn’t choose her. Why? Because the narrative is just gone.

    The overdue status was strong, but I wonder if Meryl could have really won for A:OC or ITW if she had not won for TIL.
    It was her baitiest role in ages, plus her closest rival was not young, not overdue, not a slam dunk performance, not an awards juggernaut or America’s Sweetheart.

    Overall DDL needed a year more to win three Oscars than Jack Nicholson. The gap between his 1st and 2nd win was still 18 years. People act like he won an Oscar every 5 years. *lol*

    She did have two decades without a win — the 90’s and the 00’s.
