Congratulations to Meryl Streep for receiving a Best Actress Oscar nomination for “The Iron Lady”. She shares the category with Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs), Viola Davis (The Help), Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn). This is the seventeenth Academy Award nomination for Meryl Streep. “The Iron Lady” has received a further nomination for Makeup (Mark Coulier and J. Roy Helland). The Academy Awards are handed out on February 26, 2012.

I am honored to be in company with such beautiful artists, and touched deeply by my fellow actors for their generosity in giving me this acknowledgment. (Meryl Streep, Entertainmnent Weekly)

    I loved “The Iron Lady.” I vaguely remember as a young man hearing and watching on television some of the historic moments conveyed in the film. I never once saw Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady. I watched the life of Margaret Thatcher. Isn’t that the true gift that we can always count on from Meryl Streep? She will probably never win that elusive third Academy Award. Everyone knows she should have at least five by now.
    The true award and reward that Streep the actress, and we the audience can always count on is this: This amazingly beautful creature will always get the coveted, treasured roles and deliver them to us with honesty, beauty and truth. THAT, my friends, is priceless, and worth more than any silly gold statue.

    WOW. I just viewed The Iron Lady yesterday. I am never surprised by the quality of Meryl Streep’s work, but this one STUNNED me. Her performance was impeccable as the elder Thatcher. I had to really study the character to even find Streep in it. She was Margaret Thatcher. Surely, once Mrs. Thatcher’s family gives it some thought, they will appreciate the very sympathetic portrait of the former PM. I was totally moved, and now I want to read more about Mrs. Thatcher. Meryl Streep truly is the greatest living actress. Congratulations, Meryl, on a beautiful film. I am certainly cheering you on for #3. Thank you for the many wonderful films you have sent our way.

    Dear Meryl,
    congratulations from the Czech Republic! You deserve to win, and then we all want to hear THAT speech.
    I have fingers crossed for you.

  • Leanne

    Congratulations Meryl I know you will win the others dont come close
    to competing with you for this one.Cant wait to hear the long awaited speech and see how stunning you will look as always.

  • Jelreen

    I am praying hard for this one.

    Meryl Streep truly deserves to win the Oscars.

    I’ve been running movie reviews and analyses of the other movies starring her contenders. She’s still on top of them all. =)

  • lissa

    Go Girl! Fingers and toes crossed! It’s such a joy to watch everything you do. You are an unparalled artist! Thank you for being you.

  • Trish

    I totally believe that the Academy owes Meryl this Oscar. BUT, just in case there is a split and the voters lean toward another actress, perhaps it might be politically correct to call it a “tie” and award 2 statues this year. It has happened in the past with Hepburn and Streisand!! So wouldn’t it be great if when presenting best actress Colin Firth were to say, “best actress award goes to Viola Davis AND the incredibly deserving and most overlooked actress of our time, Meryl Streep”!?

  • liezl

    Will pray hard for that Oscars to be yours again, most deservingly

  • Caroline

    YEY! I am seriously considering flying to LA for the oscars! I really want to see MERYL!!

  • evi

  • Sonja

    As if there was any doubt she would not be there today.
    But congratz Meryl and Roy!

    Hope you have an awesome time at Oscars as always!

  • meliweb

    I can’t wait to hear her (win) speech this time, I’m sure it will be great! I’m pretty sure she’ll win (in France we say “never 2 without 3”).
    I’ve eared her on an interview saying that she keeps her speeches for the oscar she was nominated but didn’t won… She has practice that too (speeches) ! So happy to see this news.

  • Mannu

    wonder what time is Oscar gala in Estonia?Would like to see it.

  • Jojo

    Not surprising, but still extremely exciting! Hoping she’ll be awarded this year. She’s long overdue for another one!

  • Kayla

    WOOHOO. She’s so amazing, The word deserve is such an understatement for her as she is just brilliant and that oscar must go to no one else but her, rooting for you! xoxo
