The Two Faces of Meryl

meryl-mamma-mia1Meryl Streep is undoubtedly one of the greatest actresses of our day.  I say that being a huge Kathryn Hepburn fan.   Meryl has been nominated for numerous Oscars , Golden Globe and SAG Awards. This week she won the SAG Award for Best Actress for her amazing work in Doubt.  But that’s not the most amazing thing about Meryl Streep.

Meryl Streep in DOUBT

Meryl Streep in DOUBT

Like Kathryn the Great, Meryl has the ability to do both comedy and drama. I absolutely loved her in  The Devil Wears Prada .  This year  she  added musical comedy to her resume starring as the free-spirited Donna in the movie version of the Broadway hit Mama Mia. She sang, she danced and she was amazing! How can that happy go lucky woman  be the same sharp faced, hateful, judgmental nun in Doubt?

That is a testimony to her true talent.  She becomes the part. As I was watched Meryl’s  Sister Aloysius  Beauvier go toe-to-toe with Phillip Seymour Hoffman I was thankful my parents spared me the benefits of  a private Catholic school’s  “better education“. That woman was scary!  Not at all the same singing and dancing Meryl who wins the heart of Pierce Brosnan.

When you watch her in Doubt, you will understand why she has been nominated for so many awards. Treat yourself to a Meryl-Fest. If you haven’t seen Doubt, go see it today, then  rent Mamma Mia! & The Devil Wears Prada to see the many faces of Meryl Streep.

Stay tuned for more about the Best Supporting Actresses, Amy Adams and Viola Davis in Doubt. As well more about the Oscars.
