    Vote for your favorite collective nominated work from these actresses from 2000 to 2012.  Minimum of 4 nominations to be included.

    If only one actress of the following had been denied one of her nominations it would be a full 10 choices here.  Ladies with 3 nods not able to be on list: Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Laura Linney, Helen Mirren, Michelle Williams & Renee Zellweger

    This is really hard and they all have at least 1 great performance and a bunch of so so ones.

    I suppose I’ll go with Meryl as ‘The Iron Lady’ is my favourite performance of the lot and I would probably give her a win in 2009 as well.

    If Amy Adams had been nommed for ‘Enchanted’ as she should have been she may very well have got my vote for an overall body of work.

    I voted La Streep, but could have easily voted for Adams, Dench or Winslet as well.  I am a fan of Blanchett’s…but I find she doesn’t usually get nominated for her great poerformances.

    1. Streep (Divine, jsut divine…”Doubt” being the only thing to question – but I still admire her in it.  The other 4 works are perfect.)
    2. Adams (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her…”Doubt” is the lesser work, but still great)
    3. Dench (Iris & Notes were impeccable performances – Mrs. Henderson I love.  Chocolat not so much)
    4. Winslet (Eternal alone made me consider her for my vote – she’s always great though.)
    5. Blanchett (see above notes)

    Streep and Blanchett pawn everyone in this lineup. Besides Eternal Sunshine, I really don’t understand the lovefest for Winslet.

    I voted for Meryl as well. Mostly for Adaptation and The Devil Wears Prada. I respect The Iron Lady performance a great deal, but I can’t say I love it. And Doubt could have been terrific, but to me Meryl was miscast and the director pushed in the wrong direction, which is ironic, given that he’s the writer as well.

    1. Meryl Streep – by a mile!
    2. Amy Adams – mostly for Junebug and The Master!
    3. Cate Blanchett
    4. Judi Dench – for Notes on a Scandal alone! I respect her work in Iris and the rest is bad! Chocolat?
    5. Winslet – I actually liked her in every one of these films except for The Reader but none of these performances stands out as something I really love (Streep has two of these among her films, Adams has two, Blanchett and Dench one each!)

    1. Winslet – should have won for Eternal Sunshine and probably second for Little Children, the only thing weighing her down is The Reader
    2. Adams – strong work in every single film she’s nominated for, only an Enchanted nomination away from being #1
    3. Streep – remarkable, the only blemish being Doubt, though only one (maybe two) films on the list is particularly good
    4. Cate Blanchett – right at Streep’s heels, though Elizabeth GA is pretty weak
    5. Judi Dench – phenomenal actress but needs to make stronger choices, Chocolat and MHP are laughable films

    1) Kate Winslet (Eternal Sunshine alone ranks her pretty highly, in my book)
    2) Meryl Streep
    3) Cate Blanchett
    4) Amy Adams
    5) Judi Dench

    I’ve never understood the raves Winslett gets for ‘Eternal Sunshine’.

    She was just annoying.

    I would give it to Adams for her overall body of work. She was outstanding in Junebug and also quite good in the others.

    I think the answer is without a question Meryl Streep. Her career resurgence was unprecedented and in the last decade she became more popular than she had ever been in her career, finally earning box office movie star status. 2002 was a banner year: The Hours and Adaptation, two of her best performances since the 1980s. She was the heart of The Hours, and felt so genuine and spontaneous, and was Adaptation a great role or what?!? That year helped her then get Prada and Mamma Mia which appealed to a mass audience. While some performances were admittedly not worthy of nominations and pretty hammy (Iron Lady did not do even a decent job at characterizing and telling Margaret Thatcher’s story, it was bad), Meryl is at the peak of her powers now in Hollywood. My only hope is she works with a great director for the first time in like forever, PLEASE!!!
