Meryl Streep, I Really Want 2010 To Be Your Oscar Year!

Some people still think of Meryl Streep as a big Oscar winner — but I think of her as the Susan Lucci of The Academy Awards! Year after year, Meryl’s name gets called as a nominee, and over and over, the cameras pan to her, as she claps gracefully while another actress accepts her golden statue.

I’ve had enough! Do I think Meryl REALLY deserves to win for her performance as Julia Child in Julie & Julia? Not particularly. But for all the movies I DO think she deserved the win for: Out of AfricaAdaptation, and The Devil Wears Prada, I really think Meryl deserves to finally win her Oscar!

Did you know she has been nominated for an Academy Award 16 times, but only won TWICE? And every time I mention, “Meryl Streep never wins an Oscar!” someone inevitably starts going off about Kramer V. Kramer.  Yeah, that was in 1979! I wasn’t even born yet! Maybe people think  Meryl is a big Oscar winner because she’s been nominated SO many times … but as long as I’ve been around, she’s been sidelined.

Meryl’s an actress who has influenced those of us born in the ’80s as much as she did those born in the ’60s! And I want to see Meryl win one of these things before she is too old to walk up on the stage and accept! Academy, if you’re listening, the “Meryl for Oscars 2010″ campaign has officially begun!

it is a real shame that Meryl hasn’t been given her 3rd Oscar. If sh loses out again, I will seriously sue the Academy.

“So really, someone else can take it this year.”

Absolutely not… and especially not Sandra Bullock.

I’ve been out there on the LA Times as one of her many fans, saying my bit and hoping against all hopem that finally justice will be done this year and continue for la Streep.

But it seems so overwhelming of late, this Oscar, mediocre and mediocrity patting each other on the back at the expense of greatness.

Over the years Meryl’s Oscars have been given to many. Let’s hope 2010 isn’t one of them…

Chin up Born-80′s Meryl fan, from a Born 60′s Meryl’s fan. We do transcend the generations, sweetheart, we really do, testimony to the genious of the Greatest Actress Of All Times!

Chin up, whatever happens… this weekend.

She’s won twice and nominated 16 times…I think Meryl knows that’s an accomplishment in itself. It’s not like she’s never won, like Susan Lucci’s case. So really, someone else can take it this year.
