Congratulations to Meryl for receiving a BAFTA nomination as Leading Actress for “The Iron Lady”. She shares the category with Bérénice Bejo (The Artist), Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn), Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin) and Viola Davis (The Help). The film scored a total of four nominations, including Best Supporting Actor (Jim Broadbent), Original Screenplay (Abi Morgan) and for Make-Up and Hair. The Hollywood Reporter has Meryl’s reaction on the nomination: “Thrilling thrilling news! Not just for me, but for the film of which I am very proud, and for the hundreds of people who worked on it! Thanks, from a (New) Jersey girl…” Jim Broadbent, nominated in the supporting actor category for his portrayal of Denis Thatcher opposite Streep, gave a very British reaction. Said Broadbent: “Really exciting news. I couldn’t be more excited that a film that was such fun to make, is getting this recognition. It’s fantastic for all of us and I can’t wait for the party!” The BAFTAs will be handed out on February 12, 2012.
