Forum posters predict Meryl Streep as best actress Oscars champ

January 7, 2010 |  2:33 pm

Meryl Streep Julie and Julia

Six of our top forum posters are showing the so-called experts how it is done. Tuesday, they predicted the best picture winner, with four of them favoring "Up in the Air" to prevail while two prefer the chances of "Avatar." Today, they turn to the hotly contested best actress race, and five of the six -- Bocaboy7, Dr. McPhearson, Kams, Pacinofan, and seanflynn -- believe Meryl Streep will finally win Oscar No. 3 for "Julie and Julia." Fittingly, it is Atypical who is the lone holdout for Carey Mulligan ("An Education"), who placed second with nearly all the other pundits. Contenders are ranked according to their likelihood of winning.

Streep, hands down. Her perforance as America's Sweetheart was brilliant, second to none. Oscar # 3

But Sandra Bullock dyed her hair blonde and spoke with a Southern twang and is playing an uptight Christian woman..isn't that a stretch for her??

meryl streep all the way :D:D

Why do I have the feeling not enough people will have seen The Last Station and Laurent will get in instead of Mirren?

I hope they're right. Streep's performance was flat out brilliant.

i concur with the prediction. the single best thing that ever happened in the movie world last summer of 09 is meryl streep's performance is julie & julia.

cheers to meryl's unforgettable performance!
