Don't think she qualifies.

Fruitvale Station is legit. Strong recommendation from me. Surprised Michael B Jordan and Octavia Spencer aren't getting any awards buzz. Anyone else seen it yet?


Saw it. Very good and upsetting. Jordan is going to be a megastar. So likeable.

Sorry. Lame attempt at a joke for actors/actresses.

Maybe the actress most recognized for her performances. My issue is she only seems to do movies for awards. When's the last time she played a normal person where she didn't ham it up.

Would Daniel Day Lewis be a good comp for Streep?

Yeah I think so, just less prolific. Good call.

Seems like she's always in average movies that stand out due to her performance. It'd be nice to see her in a movie with some real Best Picture buzz.

I thought Doubt was great, but yeah, she seems to do a lot of just good movies. DDL however, does fewer movies, but they're usually great. Both rarely do movies where they aren't a good bet to be nominated, but that's partially because they're just fantastic and have such a great reputation.

Sounds like the anti NRA movie she's going to be in will make some waves and it seems like a movie that will get nominated on its subject matter alone.

Well now Rob is going to withdraw consideration for her being the best ever. :lol:

116 award wins, with 172 nominations for Streep.

That includes 3 best actress Oscars and 17 best actress nominations since 1979...also had a best supporting actress nomination in that time frame as well.

She also has 28 GG nominations and 8 wins.

Crazy "stats" there.

Streep is great, but after what Daniel Day Lewis did in Lincoln, no one can ever touch him.  He was amazingly convincing in that role.

Doubt was a very good movie, probably her best in recent memory. The Weinstein Company needs to get David O'Russell to direct a movie with both Streep and DDL and call it a year.

She plays crazy well. Her role in this movie and American Hustle are so similar, IMO. She's great.

 

Also... white leggings. Yes, please.
