Meryl Streep is ridiculous. She has been nominated for an Academy Award seventeen different times. Seventeen.
And—likely to no one’s surprise—I am the worst movie geek in the world because I haven’t seen any of them. The only Meryl Streep film I think I’ve ever seen is Death Becomes Her, and those of you who have seen this movie probably aren’t surprised that it wasn’t nominated for anything.
Today I have two polls for you. This first poll asks you to choose the very best of ALL of Meryl Streep’s nominated roles. Don’t worry. You don’t have to have seen all of these movies to choose. In fact, if you’ve only seen one film and you thought Meryl Streep was great in it, pick that. I won’t judge. Cause, clearly, I can’t. Besides, my second poll kind of, sort of addresses that problem, anyway.
Now, the second poll is exceptionally easy. I just want to know how many of these Meryl Streep Oscar-nominated movies you’ve actually seen.
Let’s see if I’m the only one who hasn’t watched Meryl Streep when her head’s on the right way.

I’d say that by far the best film I’ve seen in that list is “Adaptation” and you should definitely check it out. It certainly represents one of the better (and possibly the best) lead performances from Nicolas Cage, but Meryl Streep’s turn didn’t seem particularly special in it.
It’s interesting that so many people made the same choice for her best performance as I did. It’s not the best movie I’ve ever seen but there’s no doubting the quality of Meryl Streep’s performance as Julia Childs.
I think I may have accidentally voted to say I’d only seen 3 Oscar nominated Streep performances when I’ve actually seen 4. I’d helpfully managed to forget to count “The Devil Wears Prada” (ugh!).
looks like you’re the only one, carlie 🙂
