Streep again named favorite to portray Hillary Clinton

Fourth day in a row blogging!  Quick note on the SAGs last night:  I was 4-for-5 in predictions, only missing ensemble, which ended up going to Argo instead of my selection of Silver Linings Playbook.   That bodes well for Argo's continued momentum for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.  Despite predicting her, I was slightly surprised at Jennifer Lawrence's win for Silver Linings.   Her status as front-runner has definitely been cemented.  Um, thanks Harvey.

In other news, I came across a poll today which lists Meryl as the #1 pick of whom the public thinks should play Hillary Clinton in a biopic.  No such pic (of Clinton during her political career) is in the making, but it's fun to see Meryl mentioned again.  Goodness knows I'd love to see a film about Clinton made, and I think Meryl would of course nail it.  Clinton says goodbye as Secretary of State within the next couple of weeks, so a retreat from public life (hopefully brief (wink)) certainly gives screenwriters an opportunity to get their pens active.  I'll leave you with this video of Clinton with president Obama last night on 60 Minutes:
