As expected, Meryl was nominated this morning for a record 31st time (breaking her own record) by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for her performance in The Post. The film also receive noms for Best Picture-Drama, Best Director (Steven Spielberg), Best Actor-Drama (Tom Hanks), Best Screenplay (Liz Hannah and Josh Singer) and Best Score (John Williams). Only The Shape of Water had more nominations, with seven.
Meryl's co-nominees for Best Actress in a Drama were as follows:
Jessica Chastain (Molly's Game)
Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water)
Frances McDormand (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri)
Michelle Williams (All the Money in the World)
Williams was a surprise, at director Ridley Scott did re-shoots on his film, replacing Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer (who happened to bag a nom in supporting).
Some of the main contenders for Oscar nominations happen to be in the Musical/Comedy category this year, namely Saoirse Ronan for Lady Bird and Margot Robbie for I, Tonya. The nominees in that category also included Judi Dench (Victoria & Abdul), Emma Stone (Battle of the Sexes). I don't expect to see Helen Mirren (The Leisure Seeker) at future awards shows.
SAG noms announced on Wednesday!
