Meryl Streep addresses her long losing streak at the Oscars

January 16, 2010 |  7:38 am

I wasn't the only Derbyite asking tough questions backstage at the Critics' Choice Awards. Our forums moderator Darrin "DoubleD" Dortch confronted Meryl Streep to find out what she thinks of her prolonged losing streak at the Oscars. Although she currently holds the record for most nominations (15), she's won only once for lead actress ("Sophie's Choice") and once for supporting ("Kramer vs. Kramer"), and it's been more than two decades since she's given an acceptance speech before an academy crowd.

Also check out videos of the other tough questions we asked backstage: confronting Mo'Nique with the criticism of skipping key events during derby season and asking "The Hurt Locker" director Kathryn Bigelow what it's like to beat her ex-husband, James Cameron ("Avatar"), twice.
