Thirty Years Ago...

...on April 9th 1979, this photo was taken outside the Academy Awards honoring the films of 1978. Meryl was a first time nominee that year for The Deer Hunter.


Her follow up project, Woody Allen's Manhattan (another future classic) was opening in just two weeks time. Welcome to Meryl Streep Month. Sorry for the delays. We'll begin with a trip back to her feature debut, Julia (1977) tomorrow.

Is that Mr. Gummar in the background?

That light behind her! that dress! that look! that HAIR!! Reminds me of her singing magnificently "Sodomy"!

PS: Is magnificently really the right word? It's "Sodomy", not "My heart will go on". It actually is just right!

Finally!!! Meryl's month!
Love this picture.
@Jim: yes, magnificent is the right word!
@Vince: I don't think that man behind her in the picture is Mr. Gummer... or at least he doesn't look like him.

And, for the record, Meryl wore exactly THAT SAME DRESS this year at the Bafta ceremony!

My friends and I are planning a Streep extravaganza in honor of her 60th. We're going to spend a few days watching her essentials.

Yeah. Julia!!!!!!! I'm not a Streep fanatic, and I may not be totally in LOVE with Julia, but I hope I see something about Vanessa Redgrave.

i bet she's thinking, "I like it here. I want to come back almost every year and be the queen of the oscars!"

Do you think she knew about THE SECRET years before it was released to the public?
