    I still have my VHS copy of Come Back to the Five & Dime Jimmy Dean……a great movie with great performances all round.

    Sophie’s Choice is one of Streep’s finest and deserved her Oscar for that role.

    With that being said, I’ve always found Streep very mathematical in her performances, she always does everything very perfectly. She controls when she has to and lashes out when she has to. It’s very calculated. She knows what she’s doing with every character she plays and that probably contrasts with the amount of nominations and wins she’s got on her belt.

    Whereas I’ve always found Lange to be more emotional and draws you to her character, she makes you understand her and feel for her, she’s also very raw. And I’ll give her more credit given her first roles. Lange has also very campy roles. She’s a bombshell and very experimental too. I would say she is what Marilyn Monroe could’ve become.

    They’re both great actresses tho, and I’ve enjoyed a lot of their work.

    Lange could have won in any other year during the 80s. Streep deservingly earned that Oscar.

    It does remind me of Cotillard beating Christie in 08. Julie Christie would have been a great winner any other year during the 00s but she was competing against an untouchable performance.
