Meryl Streep in ‘Julie & Julia’: A look back at her 16th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 16 of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her at the Academy Awards, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

In 1977, the year Meryl Streep made her feature film debut in “Julia,” Nora Ephron was working full-time as a columnist for Esquire, penning memorable pieces on the likes of controversial Boston University President John Silber and the series finale of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”

By the time, six years later, Ephron made her own big screen debut as screenwriter of the Streep-headlined “Silkwood” (1983), Streep had two Oscar victories under her belt. The success of “Silkwood” in 1983 set expectations supremely high for their collaboration on “Heartburn” (1986), based on the acclaimed Ephron semi-autobiographical novel – anticipation that would make that picture’s ultimate

Six talking points ahead of the 2018 Baftas

Six talking points ahead of the 2018 Baftas
The Shape Of Water stakes its claim but this is the most British line-up in years.

Will The Shape Of Water sweep the board?

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape Of Water scored 12 nominations and is the most nominated film at the Baftas since The King’s Speech achieved 14 nods in 2011.

There were also resounding performances by Darkest Hour with nine nominations, including best film, and Blade Runner 2049 with eight nominations, including a best director berth for Denis Villeneuve.

Darkest Hour had only managed a single Golden Globe nomination but the combination of its stirring theme and Gary Oldman’s bravura performance proved a hit with voters within the British academy. Meanwhile, Blade Runner 2049, shutout by the Golden Globes, was in danger of becoming an awards afterthought but the sci-fi has now scored as many Bafta nominations as Ridley Scott’s 1982 original.

2018 BAFTAs poll results: Allison Janney (‘I, Tonya’) is on thin ice

2018 BAFTAs poll results: Allison Janney (‘I, Tonya’) is on thin ice
Allison Janney might not get the gold — at least at BAFTA, according to our users. In our recent poll asking which of the four acting frontrunners is most susceptible to an upset at Sunday’s BAFTAs, 51 percent of you chose the “I, Tonya” star.

Janney’s main Best Supporting Actress rival has been Laurie Metcalf (“Lady Bird”), but BAFTA added an interesting wrinkle by nominating “Phantom Thread” star Lesley Manville, who went on to score an Oscar nomination as well — one of the film’s surprising six nominations. A seasoned thespian, she could be the beneficiary of BAFTA’s penchant of awarding British stars from time to time. Manville is in third in our odds behind Janney and Metcalf.

If it’s not Janney who gets derailed, then it might be Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,

Quote of the Day: Viola Davis on Receiving Fewer Opps and Less Pay as a Woc

Davis on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”

What’s absent from far too many conversations about pay equality in Hollywood — and elsewhere — is recognition of the fact that all women aren’t compensated equally. As bad as things are for women in general when it comes to being underpaid and receiving fewer opportunities than men, the situation is significantly worse for women of color. Viola Davis is reminding everyone about this critical piece of the puzzle.

“We won’t talk about gender inequality of pay. Because a lot of the women who’ve stepped forward — and I stand in solidarity with them, okay? — what they are getting paid, which is half of what a man is getting paid … well, we get probably a tenth of what of what a Caucasian woman gets,” the Oscar winner told W Magazine. “And I’m number one on the call sheet. And then I go in,

Meryl Streep in ‘Doubt’: A look back at her 15th Oscar nomination, the competition and the outcome
This article marks Part 15 of the 21-part Gold Derby series analyzing Meryl Streep at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at Meryl Streep’s nominations, the performances that competed with her at the Academy Awards, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the contenders.

On the heels of the spectacular box office success of “The Devil Wears Prada” (2006), Meryl Streep was more a household name than ever. Even teens and twentysomethings who weren’t terribly familiar with Streep’s body of work could now instantly identify the actress who made Miranda Priestly a big screen icon. She quickly hopped aboard three projects for 2007, all of which screamed ‘Oscar contender’ on paper and unfortunately, all of which underperformed upon release.

First, there was “Evening,” a supremely sleepy drama which, despite the presence of heavyweights including Streep, Glenn Close, Claire Danes and Vanessa Redgrave, failed to leave
