    Meryl Streep will most like get Oscar nod #20 for “Florence Foster Jenkins.” But which of the previous did she really not deserve?

    1.     Supporting Actress: “The Deer Hunter,” 1977

    2.     Supporting Actress: “Kramer vs. Kramer,” 1978

    3.     Lead Actress: “The French Lieutenant’s Woman,” 1980

    4.     Lead Actress: “Sophie’s Choice,” 1981

    5.     Lead Actress: “Silkwood,” 1982

    6.     Lead Actress: “Out of Africa,” 1984

    7.     Lead Actress: “Ironweed,” 1986

    8.     Lead Actress: “A Cry in the Dark,” 1987

    9.     Lead Actress: “Postcards from the Edge,” 1989

    10.  Lead Actress: “The Bridges of Madison County,” 1994

    11.  Lead Actress: “One True Thing,” 1997

    12.  Lead Actress: “Music of the Heart,” 1998

    13.  Supporting Actress: “Adaptation,” 2001

    14.  Lead Actress: “The Devil Wears Prada,” 2005

    15.  Lead Actress: “Doubt,” 2007

    16.  Lead Actress: “Julie & Julia,” 2008

    17.  Lead Actress: “The Iron Lady,” 2010

    18.  Lead Actress: “August: Osage County,” 2012

    19.  Supporting Actress: “Into the Woods,” 2013

    wins are in bold.

    For me it’s  “Music of the Heart” which could’ve easily been a Lifetime TV movie. Maybe its the movie…or maybe the NSYNC song is what really did it for me.

    Music of the Heart stands out easily as a sore thumb in her nomination count.

    The Iron Lady, Julie and Julia.

    She’s in the wrong categories for Devil and August.

    Are you serious? That’s one of her best. The movie is bad but not the performance.

    Music of the Heart is her worse.

    To me it is one of her weaker performances. Sophie’s Choice, Silkwood, Kramer, Deer Hunter and many more are vastly superior.

    She’s co-lead for August and literally the backbone of Prada.

    If we start a thread of this, we can do Jack Nicholson too. But her “worst” nom is Music of the Heart and to a lesser extent, Adaptation.

    A Cry in the Dark, Music of the Heart, One True Thing, August: Osage County, Into the Woods and probably FFJ shouldn’t have been nominated, and I think she could have been better in Ironweed and Doubt.

    One True Thing is so underrated for me…performance wise. I didn’t understand her praise for Adaptation. She was just meh in that. And Music of the Heart, yes she played an ordinary person, but no.

    Hathaway is the lead of Devil. Streep starts out as the focus of August, but Roberts becomes the true lead.

    Among all these very showy performances MUSIC OF THE HEART stands out bc it was a very flat kind of role. She is good but definitely not oscar worthy. Esp over Reese Witherspoon in Election, that’s one of the greatest comedic performances of all time.
    I also don’t think there is anything too special about her Adaptation performance.

    I wouldn’t have recognized her for The French Lieutenant’s Woman, Out of Africa, Ironweed, Music of the Heart, The Devil Wears Prada or Into the Woods. The absolute worst, I would argue, is Into the Woods.
