Streep receives 19th Academy Award nomination

Congratulations to Meryl for again breaking her own record and receiving her 19th Academy Award nomination for her supporting role in Into the Woods.  The film also garnered nominations in Costume Design and Production Design.

I think I did fairly well in my predictions in the acting categories.  I counted 16 out of 20 that I predicted correctly.  Glad to see that Steve Carell got in.  A little disappointed that Jennifer Aniston didn't make it, as Marion Cotillard was a bit of a surprise for her performance in Two Days One Night.  Laura Dern in Wild!  Good for her!  Supporting actor went five-for-five in predictability.  The full list of nominees can be seen here.

Meryl has now been nominated in the supporting category for the fourth time overall, and the first time since 2002's Adaptation.  It's also the 7th time she's been nominated in back to back years.  I don't see this train slowing down anytime soon.  Her full list of Oscar nominations now reads as follows, with wins in bold.

  1. Yay!!!!!! So happy this morning. I was a bit concerned with all the snubs this morning but she did it! The record breaking 20th nomination should not be far behind��

    1. Indeed. I imagine she'd be in the running for at least one of Ricki and the Flash, Florence Foster Jenkins or The Good House.

  2. Yes!!! 19 nomination!!! How incredible is that?

  3. Jeff- have you heard the rumors of another Marshall/Streep/Sondheim collaboration. Broadwayworld says they may be looking to bring Follies to the big screen!
