For her portrayal of Margaret Thatchter, Meryl Streep won her career’s third Academy Award, as well as several other awards, including a Golden Globe, BAFTA Film Award and New York and London Film Critics Circle Awards. The film received a second Academy Award for her longtime companion Roy Helland’s makeup work with Mark Coulier. Commenting on her third Academy Award win, Streep said “I was a kid when I won this, like, 30 years ago. Two of the nominees were not even conceived. I thought I was so old and jaded, but they call your name and you just go into a sort of white light”.

In the Summer of 2012, Streep reunited with director David Frankel for the dramedy “Hope Springs”, co-starring Tommy Lee Jones and Steve Carell. Streep and Jones played a middle-aged couple attending a week-long marriage counseling to bring back intimacy to their relationship. Reviews and box office revenues were favorable, and it honored Meryl Streep with yet another Golden Globe nomination.
