MERYL STREEP “Thrilled” To Be Nominated For A BAFTA!

By on 17 January, 2012


Meryl Streep is said to be ”thrilled” after being nominated for a BAFTA in the Leading Actress category for her performance as former British Prime Minister Baroness Margaret Thatcher in ‘The Iron Lady‘!


The Hollywood actress received a nod for the Leading Actress prize – the same category in which she triumphed at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (15th January, 2012).

She said in a statement:

“Thrilling thrilling news! Not just for me, but for the film of which I am very proud, and for the hundreds of people who worked on it! Thanks, from a (New) Jersey girl…”


Other actresses who have been nominated in the same category include Michelle Williams, Tilda Swinton, Viola Davis and Bérénice Bejo, and the winner will be announced at a ceremony hosted by Stephen Fry at London’s Royal Opera House on the 12th February, 2012.

During her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, Streep accidentally swore when she realised she had forgotten her glasses and had to remember what she’d pre-prepared. But she went on to thank “everybody in England” for allowing her to take on the role of Thatcher in the biopic.

She said:

“I gotta thank everybody in England who let me come over and trample all over their history, especially Phyllida Lloyd, Abi Morgan who wrote it. All the cast and crew in England. We made it for 25 cents in five minutes, and I’m so proud of the film.”
