    Will Streep FINALLY Get Double-Nomination @ Oscars this year ???

     

    With no Category Confusion (Lead Vs Supporting) to boot and the Release Dates almost set in stone this year for Ricki and The Flash (Aug 7) & Suffragette (Oct 23) ….. Will Meryl Streep FINALLY Get a Double Nomination in 2015 what  could’ve happened in 2002 for Adaptation & The Hours ???

    ***

    PROS:

    1. Offbeat Rocker-Chick Role in Ricki and The Flash +++ Iconic-Historical Role of Emmeline Pankhurst in Suffragette.
    2. Distinctive Campaign Narrative available for each Film & Bid.
    3. Distinctive & Excellent Individual Performance & Portrayal = VERSATILITY which need to be recognized separately.
    4. UNDENIABILITY.
    5. More to follow …..

    ***

    CONS:

    1. Streep Fatigue & Saturation since a double nomination would translate to 20th & 21st Nomination.
    2. Competition &  Dueness.  In 2002, Streep in The Hours for Best Actress was crowded out by Hayek for Frida.
    3. Cameo role Perception and Intra-film Competition in Suffragette which could cannibalize Streep’s #1 votes.  
    4. Focus & Priority for Carey Mulligan’s Lead Actress bid for Suffragette.
    5. More to follow …..

    Note to Goldderby Editors:  This new & separate Streep thread is similar to last year — Should Streep be in Lead or Supporting for Into The Woods ??? — which was allowed under the revised policy.

    I don’t see her getting in for Suffragette. Hesitate to say it…but Ricki and the Flash seems like a sure thing as long as she kills it like she almost always does.

    Another con would be if it turns out to be Helena Bonham Carter (in Suffragette) who they push for supporting.

    Meryl has recieved 19 noms without any double noms. So no, I don’t think she’ll get it. She was close in 2002, but Adaptation was simply the safest spot. Some may say even 2006, but the Prada success with BO and the praise from the critics overshadowed APHC so much despite the fact it was Altman’s last movie.
    IF she does get two SAG nods however… I might think otherwise.

    Major CON for Streep ==> Spread The Wealth & Choose One ==> Worst Case Scenario = Cancel Out and Not Nominated in either.

    The Teaser Trailer though gives the impression that Streep would be a Priority.

    Although HBC could be a factor as Intra-film Competition to siphon #1 votes for nomination.

    What’s your ranking then ….. 1st & 2nd to be nominated ???

    Mine would be Ricki and The Flash 1st as Best Actress.

    IF & WHEN Meryl Streep get a Best Supporting Actress Nomination for Suffragette, we can possibly classify it as a COATTAIL Nomination which hardly happens to her.

    What makes it a COATTAIL Nomination:

    1. Riding on the always “hot” Women’s Rights & Equality advocacies.
    2. Riding on multiple nominations for the film which could include Best Picture, Best Actress, etc …
    3. Riding on the British Historical Significance.
    4. Possibly & Weirdly, to help boost Hillary Clinton’s US Presidential bid.
    5. Per se, Iconic Role >>>versus>>> Performance.  The Role Trump The Performance.
    6. What else ???

    As great an actress as STREEP is, acting isnt just giving
    a memorable 10 minute solliloquoy..Streep can read the phone
    book and be believable  but actors have shown in the past that they nominate
    actors who have scenes with other actors.do we all remember
    VANESSA REDGRAVE’S final scene in Atonement??  One of the finest
    scenes she has ever been in..She is mesmerizing but it led to NO nomination.
    She acted by herself..sure, Anthony minghella was opposite her and asked
    her a few questions but its not the type of screen acting actors vote for..
    And LYNN REDGRAVE  in Kinsey had a memorable solliloquoy at the end
    of that film..she was brilliant as well..but NO nomination.
    Streep will not be nominated for SUFFRAGETTE…

    The Teaser Trailer indicates that Streep as Pankhurst had INTERACTIVE Scene with Mulligan’s character and Pankhurst’s followers.  If at all, that scene could be a reinforcement to her Tour-de-Force Rally Speech.

    Anyway, re-posting this …..

    Let’s see, Meryl Streep in Suffragette as Emmeline Pankhurst with her Tour de Force Rally Speech (10 minutes or so) could join the ranks of the following Oscar winning & nominated short-cameo supporting actress performances:

    ***

    1. Beatrice Straight – Network (1976)
    2. Judi Dench – Shakespeare in Love (1998)
    3. Viola Davis – Doubt (2008)
    4. Sylvia Miles – Midnight Cowboy (1969)
    5. Jane Alexander – Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) & All the President’s Men (1976)
    6. Geraldine Page – The Pope of Greenwich Village (1984)
    7. Lee Grant – Detective Story (1951)
    8. Hermione Baddeley – Room at the Top (1959)


    Quite a precedent indeed …..

    You said it yourself, Etchie.  I think the biggest challenge for Streep in Suffragette (I’d be shocked if she were nominated) will be securing #1 votes for that role.  You have not provided a persuasive arguement for why people would put her name #1 for what her role will most likely be.  I think 10 minutes of screen time is generous.  

    Ricki and the Flash, however…

    …should set her up very nicely for the chance at another lead nomination, unless for some reason they decide to whip out Florence Foster Jenkins by the end of December.

    Banking on the Women’s Rights & Equality Advocates & Supporters within the Actors Branch of The Academy to give Streep #1 votes. 

    Perhaps, Patricia Arquette will give Streep #1 vote.  Christine Baranski will possibly give Streep #1 vote.

    Streep nominated in Suffragette would give their cause a higher profile.

    Oh, Oh, Oh, I forgot ….. Jennifer Lopez will definitely give Streep #1 vote for nomination and WIN vote IF nominated !!!

    I always figured Ricki and the Flash would be more Globe fodder to help aid her in a sole supporting nomination. And I think Suffragette will be timely with the Hillary factor going into the primary season next winter lol.

    I do think right atm she has the better chances for Suffragettes. Why? Oh well, one reason alone is that she has never been snubbed playing a real person.
    And why should “only” 10 minutes of screentime stop her at all? There are actresses that won for lesser screentime even. I think 5 minutes is the record.
    If the speeches she gives are impressive and praised by critics…. why not?
    But it’s all too soon to tell, really.
    Ricki and The Flash could turn out more than just nice. I do hope so.

    And please…. comparing her to Vanessa Redgrave in Atoinment? If she have had that part, that last scene, I’m surte she had a better chance to be nominated than Redgrave. It’s not that she would have played the part better, Redgrave was fantastic, it’s because of her status.
    She has been nominated for a lot of roles that other actresses wouldn’t stand a chance of getting nominated for.
