Meryl Streep secures an Oscar nom in new Iron Lady trailer

11.15.2011

You merely have to say the phrase "Meryl Streep playing a historical figure" and you've automatically secured her one of the five Best Actress nominee spots at this year's Oscars. And if she has to do a funny voice? That's at least a 50/50 shot right there.

I kid, I kid, I'm sure that her performance in THE IRON LADY will be more than worthy of such an honor, and it would be nice if the film it was attached to was good as well. Streep will be playing Prime Minster Margaret Thatcher, who rose to power among throngs of men telling her she couldn't do it.

You know, it would be kind of awesome if it ended up being Streep as Thatcher going up against Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander for the Best Actress statue. You probably could not think of two more opposite people on the planet.

I'm still pissed she won't be in The Avengers movie; I just hope there's still a Nick Fury cameo.

This film is going to divide the uk audience

To be honest she doesn't seem as good as Lindsey Duncan was in the tv movie Margaret.
Get the vibe from the trailer that this is going to be a sympathetic portrayal of a women who was unsympathetic towards those who found themselves unemployed, those who were unsure of their sexuality, those who were hiv positive and those who wanted to own the Evil Dead on video.
Like I said this is going to have a mixed reaction when it's released in England.

Yeah, AMPAS will remember that one

Michelle Williams' My Week With Marilyn will also be in the running for Best Actress.

Mara > Close > Streep

Let's not forget about Glenn Close in Albert Knobbs (I think that's what it's called). We all know the Academy likes to give lifetime achievement awards to actors who have been snubbed in the past (Winslet, Clooney, Bullock) so it wouldn't surprise me to see the Academy give it to Close. I would love to see it go to Mara though.

Wonder if Michelle Yeoh will get a nomination for "The Lady." With Luc Besson behind the camera that could hurt the odds.

I think Keira Knightly for A Dangerous Method and Emily Browning for Sleeping Beauty could be possibly best actress noms but its hard to say from just a trailer. Looking forward to seeing both films. For the best actor side, Dominic Cooper better be nominated for his role in Devil's Double. I would be outraged if he was forgotten.

I've said it once and I'll say it again...

MARGARET THATCHER NAKED ON A COLD DAY!

In all seriousness though the movie does look great and I think Meryl has definitely earned herself another nomination.

I think Saoirse Ronan should get a nomination for Hanna but I doubt the Academy will remember that when the time comes.
