    Meryl Streep is one of the greatest actresses that have ever lived and holds the all-time record for most acting Oscar nominations with 21 and 3 wins. However many argue that the only reason she gets nominated some years is because the is Meryl Streep.

    The question is how many Oscar nominations and wins should she really have and who should have been nominated and won ?

    Darlings, you’re disgusting. The Post is a masterpiece and Meryl deserved the Oscar.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    I know people aren’t crazy about her “Doubt” performance, but it’s one of (if not) my favorites. I love the scene-stealing, hammy, chew-the-scenery of the performance. It’s excellent, and she would have been a great winner.

    I completely agree. Even my brother who doesn’t usually like Streep liked her in The Post.

    I must say that FFJ being her 20th nomination was so upsetting as it is not a great performance

    The Iron Lady (Second)
    Doubt (Third)

    This type of thread is created every few months…

    I would take away the Adaptation, Music of the Heart, and The French Lieutenants Woman. Give her one for the Hours and she’s still have 19 nominations.

    She’s great in Florence Foster Jenkins with the amount of pathos she puts into that role.

    Take Out:

    -Ironweed
    -Music Of The Heart
    -Julie & Julia
    -The Iron Lady
    -August Osage County
    -Into The Woods
    -Florence Foster Jenkins

    She can keep her other wins and swap out her win from Iron Lady and Give her the win for Cry In The Dark/Evil Angel.

    I think Julia should have been in Lead for August Osage County and Meryl in Supporting.

    Based on the Broadway production of the play, both characters played by Meryl and Julia are considered to be leading roles. In fact, the actress who played Violet (Meryl’s character in AOC) won the Tony award for best actress in a play and the actress who played Barbra (Julia’s character) was nominated in the same category.

    I don’t know why most of us think so. For me, she deserved her nomination for Florence Foster Jenkins cos her performance was great.

    I know nothing concerning her older works but the only nomination of hers that I really stand against is the one for The Post. It was such a boring performance in a role that seemed easy. Take away the subject matter and you’ll see how useless the entire movie is/was.

     

     

    If you think she didn’t deserve it for Florence Foster Jenkins, it means you’re just a hater who’s been bitter since 2017 due to the deserved Amy Adams snub that year

    I STAN Lady Gaga and Roddy Ricch
