Meryl Streep lost the SAG Award to Viola Davis for her performance in Tate Taylor's The Help. Coincidentally, Davis was featured opposite Streep in John Patrick Shanley's Doubt (2008) – for which Streep won her first (and so far only) SAG Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture. Streep and Davis' competitors this year were Glenn Close as a 19th-century Irishwoman passing for a man in Rodrigo García's Albert Nobbs, Tilda Swinton as the mother of a young mass murderer in Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin, and Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe in Simon Curtis' My Week with Marilyn.

Meryl Streep has been nominated for a total of 13 SAG Awards. She won for the aforementioned Doubt and for Mike Nichols' television mini-series Angels in America (2003). Streep's other nominations were for the following feature films: Curtis Hanson's The River Wild (1994), opposite Kevin Bacon and David Strathairn; Clint Eastwood's The Bridges of Madison County (1995), co-starring Eastwood himself; and Jerry Zaks' Marvin's Room (1996), as part of the film's cast that included Leonardo DiCaprio, Diane Keaton, Robert De Niro, Hume Cronyn, Gwen Verdon, Hal Scardino, and Dan Hedaya.

Also: Carl Franklin's One True Thing (1998), with Renée Zellweger, William Hurt, and Tom Everett Scott; Wes Craven's Music of the Heart, with Angela Bassett, Aidan Quinn, and Gloria Estefan; and as a cast member of two 2002 releases: Stephen Daldry's The Hours, with Toni Collette, Claire Danes, Jeff Daniels, Stephen Dillane, Ed Harris, Allison Janney, Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, John C. Reilly, and Miranda Richardson; and Spike Jonze's Adaptation, featuring Nicolas Cage, Chris Cooper, Brian Cox, Cara Seymour, and Tilda Swinton.

And finally: as Best Actress for David Frankel's The Devil Wears Prada (2006), with Anne Hathaway; as a Doubt cast member, along with Viola Davis, Amy Adams, and Philip Seymour Hoffman; and for Nora Ephron's Julie & Julia (2009).

Meryl Streep has been nominated for a record 17 Academy Awards. She's in the running this year for The Iron Lady. Previous nominations include those for Mike Nichols' Silkwood (1983), with Kurt Russell and Cher; Hector Babenco's Ironweed (1987), with Jack Nicholson; and Nichols' Postcards from the Edge (1990), in which she plays a fictionalized version of Star Wars' Carrie Fisher, with Shirley MacLaine as a fictionalized version of Singin' in the Rain's Debbie Reynolds. Streep has won two Oscars: as Best Supporting Actress for Robert Benton's Kramer vs. Kramer (1979), opposite Dustin Hoffman, and as Best Actress for Alan J. Pakula's Sophie's Choice (1982), opposite Kevin Kline.
