Streep earns Critics' Choice nomination for "The Post"

The Broadcast Film Critics Association released their nominations Wednesday, and The Post came away with eight nominations:

1. Best Picture
2. Best Director (Steven Spielberg)
3. Best Actress (Meryl Streep)
4. Best Actor (Tom Hanks)
5. Best Original Screenplay (Liz Hannah and Josh Singer)
6. Best Editing (Michael Kahn, Sarah Broshar)
7. Best Score (John Williams)
8. Best Acting Ensemble

This awards body is historically a bit 'low brow,' but it does its best at being a barometer for what Academy members are likely to go for. Regardless, it's the first televised awards show to announce its nominations, and with both Golden Globe and SAG noms announced next week, it's important for Meryl makes it in here. The Critics' Choice Awards will be held Thursday, January 11.

The full list of nominees can be found here.


  1. I think this year, the final race will be between Meryl ans Saiorse Ronan. Ronan is a huge contender and can capitalize the "girl of the year" effect, as happened with Jennifer Lawrence, Brie Larson or Emma Stone in previous years. I think Sally Hawkins and Frances McDorman won't appeal so much to wider audiences. Let's see what the following nominations will bring!


    1. Can't wait to see 3 Billboards. Lady Bird looks awful from its trailers!

      Sally is a wonderful actress. First time I heard her name is when she beat Meryl for the GG in 2009!

  2. I happy that the Post is seeming to get good reviews, especially Meryl. Its nice having Meryl in movie that's being considered for best picture for once and not merely a "Meryl Streep vehicle." It sucks to be a Meryl fan though this day in age with all this widespread hate online. Its like you can never type her name on twitter without seeing all these people calling her a hypocrite, still associating her with Polanski and acting as if she knew about Weinstein and enabled his behavior. Its just so frustrating the sheer number of people believing these lies and trashing her reputation.

    1. I don't understand why Meryl is getting such undue blame merely by her past association with Weinstein. It's like ever since that GG speech people are coming out of the woodwork to trash her... like Rose McGowan- such misdirected anger and hatred toward other woman when she should be applauding Meryl and the other women trying to help. Thank god Meryl didn't rise as an actress in this day and age- these actresses just can't win! Everything is overscrutinized and nothing is ever good enough!

    2. Meryl is NOT the problem. You're right that the outrage is misdirected at her. It's natural to target someone of her stature but it's a fruitless endeavor. Streep is helping, not hurting, the cause.
