Streep nominated for Critics Choice Award

Meryl has been nominated for a Critics Choice Award for her supporting work in Hulu's Only Murders in the Building. Steve Martin joins her with a nomination in the lead actor category (the only two noms for the show). The full list in her category:

Paulina Alexis – Reservation Dogs (FX) 
Alex Borstein – The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (Prime Video) 
Janelle James – Abbott Elementary (ABC) 
Sheryl Lee Ralph – Abbott Elementary (ABC) 
Meryl Streep – Only Murders in the Building (Hulu) 
Jessica Williams – Shrinking (Apple TV+)

I have to admit I haven't watched any of the other shows in this list. Turns out I gravitate a lot more toward drama and limited series' when it comes to TV. But I'm sure they're all wonderful shows. 

The awards will be presented on January 14. Stay tuned for the Golden Globe nominations on Monday. I think that will be a tough one for Meryl to get, as the television supporting category includes series (drama AND comedy), miniseries, or motion picture made for television.

  1. I am hopeful for Globe recognition (such as they are) but was surprised they overlooked her for well received performances for both "The Prom" and "Let Them All Talk" whilst nominating Kate H for Musical/Comedy instead.

    It felt like they, and others, had a vague agenda against Meryl and her alleged "overexposure".

    1. I totally agree, Charlie. She should've gotten in for at least one of those films. I could see it happening for OMITB now since Meryl hasn't done much in the last two years.

      I can't help but also feel that stretches like this could be totally deliberate on Meryl's part. She's astute enough to know how much she's been "out there." And not that she necessarily would decide on breaks simply because it could affect awards voters, but also how "fresh" her presence may seem to audiences too. That has to be harder when you've been around as long as she has and have had as much success. Who knows.

    2. I'm hopeful that the recent underexposure and possibility of returning to the awards circuit (even a win somewhere) is soon going to culminate in a one more (possibly final) surge in attention and praise (if she signs on the right thing, of course.) A sort of "celebration of the career" moment like the Iron Lady era but this time even more sentimental.

  2. She's predicted to win the Golden Globe especially as Ayo Edebiri moved to lead for The Bear

  3. While we wait for Meryl's next film role announcement, here's a xmas ditty about Meryl to tide us through
