    She’s the most nominated actress in history, and is tied for the second most acting awards at three. She has about 10-15 years of a career left (and if she is in good health could possibly set a record of a nomination for a role at an even older age!) still in the game. It’s been a decade since her last win, so it’s not like she’d be winning after just winning one. She is clearly a legend in the industry with many connections and friends.

    But would the Academy go for giving her a record-tying fourth win? Or is three Oscars enough, and the narrative of “Streep already has enough, let someone new win” be enough to derail any future campaign?

    Yes, it’s inevitable given the narrative which will form and her legendary status with her peers.

    When it happens, I hope it’s a deserving win a la Sophie’s Choice, and not an Iron Lady redux.

    I would say no because it’s enough, like enough. People are tired of her getting so many roles which can be given to Patricia Clarkson, Frances Conroy, Glenn Close, Jessica Lange, etc.

    most people don’t care about those names

    100% yes. She’s not only a beloved actress in the industry but also in the public. She is basically a cultural icon legend in cinema for actresses to the general public. I doubt she will her 4th this decade but the next decade when she is in her 80s I won’t be surprised when she becomes win competitive in those upcoming nominations.

    She will. It’s inevitable. Once she gets an undeniable performance, she’s gonna win a fourth.

    It will happen when she builds a retirement narrative. Her “final” performance, a prestige lead role, along with a good campaign backed by that narrative.

    FYC:

    Best Director - Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Darius Marder (Sound of Metal)

    Lead Actor - Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actor - Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actress - Youn Yuh-jung (Minari)

    All Streep needs is an Iron Lady or Sophie’s Choice type of bait to win a 4th.

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    No, she won’t.
    Her third Oscar win aged horribly, and it seems like there’s a fatigue about her which is starting to kick in (they literally snubbed her for everything this year).

    She’s nearly 75, she won’t get any more opportunities, no matter who she is.
    And there doesn’t absolutely seem to be an urgency to give her another one.

    Ehhh… at the very least she’ll get more nominations. Probably hitting 25.

    a 4th win is not happening and would be boring unless she does something completely different.

    She will win her 4th but she won’t be getting filler nominations anymore, if I’m honest. Hell 5 years ago, she would have gotten nods for Let Them All Talk, The Prom, The Laundromat or any other tripe film, but people have definitely gotten tired of nominating her.

    I feel like it’s pretty inevitable for her to win, but it does need to be a BP player and/or an excellent performance. She got a LOT of leeway for her 3rd win, it won’t be as easy for the 4th, but she’ll get it. She has enough years, and let’s be honest: she can deliver. She needs to pick better material than she’s been picking. That’s one thing about Meryl Streep: for all her talent, she doesn’t exactly have the best taste! The vast majority of her nominated roles were not BP films, and she’s not on the horizon in viable BP contenders that I can see for next year. So yes, it needs to be a plum role in a good film.

    I think you’re being quite harsh. Were do you have roles in BP nominees for women over 60 let alone 70? The answer is that there simply are no roles! Frances McDormand is only recently getting good roles. All those who were Meryl’s peers are not even to be seen in any films barring Glenn Close. This is such a sad reality about the longevity of female actors in the business. Why aren’t anybody writing good parts for Susan Sarandon, Jessica Lange, Helen Mirren? Meryl in her 70’s and to be honest she is doing so well. She also has Don’t look up coming next.

    Meryl might be getting more filler noms but it won’t be in lead anymore. We’ll see how she does this next season with a baity supporting role.

    She can still get lead noms but she’ll have to be good. Maybe we’ll see her back in the race with “Places, Please”.
