Streep v. Close 2012

Screw Obama and who ever will run against him it seems like the biggest race of the year will be for Best Lead Actress at next years Academy Awards. The presumptive candidates are already thinning and it seems like Queen Meryl and former rival Glen Close will have another bout for the little golden man. While I love a good cat fight especially around award season, may we refrain from such nonsensical jibber-jabber until – I don’t know – the movies comes out. For goodness sake, barely a publicity still is released and were jumping down the rabbit hole. Let’s give it to the end of the credits to make a judgement.

Meryl Streep is taking on the infamous English Prime Minster, Margaret Thatcher, in The Iron Lady while Glen Close plays the title character in Albert Nobbs.  In this role she plays a cross dressing butler in 19th century Ireland.  It seems like this fight will be head over the Irish Sea.
