A studio mistake left Meryl Streep competing against herself for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, possibly costing her one if not two nominations. A Sony spokesman said a studio employee incorrectly submitted Streep’s name in the lead-actress category for “Adaptation”. The studio considers it a supporting-actress role and has been pushing Streep in that category for other film awards. The mistake May have split Streep’s votes between “Adaptation” and her other contending role for “The Hours,” which Paramount also had submitted in the lead-actress category.

(Standing Ovation) Oh stop! Oh my God! I’ve just been nominated 789 times (laughter) and I was getting so settled over there for a long winter’s nap! (laughter). Oh God, oh I didn’t have anything prepared because it’s been like since the pleistocine era that I won anything (laughter). Oh goodness… Ok, mmhh… Yoga… I’m really so thrilled and so happy to have been able to work with this amazing group of youngsters over here… in “Adaptation”. The prediciousley talented Nic Cage, the graceful and so gifted Chris Cooper (applause). It’s because of them I’m here and of course Spike and Susan Orlean, that I apologize… you know for… the second half. And to Charlie Kaufmann, who tried very hard to adapt your book, Susan. And it’s such a beautiful job, it’s just an amazing film and I’m so glad. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!
