Meryl has been nominated for more than 20 Best Actress Oscars, as well as the, BAFTA, and SAG awards. This week she won the for Best Actress for her amazing work in Doubt. But that’s not the most amazing thing about Meryl Streep.
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 Meryl 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 withI was thankful my parents spared me the benefits of a 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.
The Best of Meryl Streep
From her early dramatic role with Dustin Hoffman in Kramer vs. Kramer to more comedic roles, movies like It’s Complicated and Florence Foster Jenkins, Meryl Streep is always amazing.
Treat yourself to a Meryl-Fest. If you haven’t seen Doubt, see it today, then rent Mamma Mia, The Devil Wears Prada or one of these other movies to see the many faces of Meryl Streep.
