The Broadcast Film Critics Association announced their nominees this morning, and Meryl was recognized with two nominations, Best Supporting Actress and Best Ensemble for Into the Woods. BFCA has six nominees for acting, so those joining Meryl include the following:
Patricia Arquette (Boyhood)
Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year)
Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game)
Emma Stone (Birdman)
Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer)
Swinton is the only true surprise, but she's been getting a few nods from critics' groups. Not a good sign for Laura Dern (Wild). Streep is in good shape for an Academy Award nomination, with the next major televised show nominations being BAFTA, which will be announced January 9.
The Critics' Choice Awards will be presented Thursday, January 15 (the day of the Oscar nominations!).
Congrats again, Meryl.
