First Look~ The Iron Lady trailer… Just give Meryl her 3rd Oscar already!

Can you believe Meryl Streep hasn’t won an Oscar since 1982 for Sophie’s Choice? It’s crazy especially since she has been nominated 16 times (the most of any actor) in her storied career and only won twice. The first time it was for Kramer vs. Kramer in 1980. I, personally think she should’ve won for The Devil Wears Prada and Julie & Julia as well… heck even for Doubt. Alas, she didn’t. However, she just might finally take home her third trophy for her new film, The Iron Lady, where she plays controversial former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. The first trailer for the biopic, directed by Phylida Lloyd (Mamma Mia) and co-starring Oscar winner Jim Broadbent (Iris), just hit the web, and despite just a quick glimpse of Streep as Thatcher, it’s clear she will be a force to be reckoned with. I have no doubt she’ll live up to the hype and grab a nomination. I just hope she wins. Granted she’ll have tough competition in an already crowded field that could include Rooney Mara (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo), Glenn Close (Albert Knobbs), and Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn) to name a few. So, will The Iron Lady finally send Streep back into the winner’s circle when it opens on December 16th? Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.
