Meryl Streep is considered the greatest actress of her generation. Streep's twenty acting Oscar nominations are 60% more than any other actor or actress in Oscar history. However, Streep only has one Oscar win the last thirty-four years despite being nominated sixteen times. As the saying goes, if she didn't have bad luck, she wouldn't have any luck at all. Will her unlucky streak continue and never win another Oscar again, which begs the question?

In retrospect, which Meryl Streep performance among her seventeen non-winning Oscar nominated roles is her greatest?

Meryl Streep Award History:
Oscars Movies Best Actress: 20 Nominations, 3 Wins
Globes Movies Best Actress: 30 Nominations, 9 Wins + Honorary Globe

Nice pick, very underrated film IMHO. It always seems to get a lot votes, whenever it is listed as a poll answer option, regardless of the topic.

Since the updated link is right there in the first reply I'm not prioritizing making an update.

That seems odd to make it hard for a multitude of users to interact with a poll suggestion to save time for a single of user.

Well, other admins should feel free to prioritize this. I'm not going to at this point.
