According to GoldDerby, John Wells’ screen version of “August: Osage County” just had its first test screening and reaction was overwhelmingly positive. “Our forum posters have been busy parsing the tweets of those in attendance. Almost all agree Streep is the one to beat for Best Actress at the Oscars”. The Broadway run of the play reaped wins for Deanna Dunagan as the vile Violet and Rondi Reed as her long-suffering sister Mattie. Margo Martindale (“Justified”) now plays that part and those who saw the film say she is likely to reap a supporting Oscar nod. The complete article with more information and reactions can be read here.

    It would be really, really funny, if Daniel Day-Lewis would present the Oscar to Meryl Streep!

    She is so wonderful in that she always gives of her best – both as an actress and a person. She is amazing.

    I’m really looking forward to watch Meryl in this movie! It’s amazing how we already know that she’s he frontrunner for the Oscar without having seen the film. That’s how great she is!

  • Sonja

    Well, I don’t trust twitter reactions at all, but the performance sounds like Meryl’s most actressing role ever and the 18th nom will be hers at very least.
