I think it's high time these old actors regardless how great you think they are, should let the younger generation have a shot. There are plenty young good actors out there. Hollywood is very obsessed with their favorite protégés it time the dog and pony show of awards show some fair recognition to the the next generation. Just how many awards is too many for people like Streep her mantel is over loaded by now.mits totally obnoxious to be honest.
