LOS ANGELES – Meryl Streep looks set for an unprecedented 17th Oscar nomination after earning glowing reviews for her performance as Britain’s Margaret Thatcher in the movie The Iron Lady. “Virtuoso,” “translucent,” and “compelling” were among the words used by U.S. movie critics this week to describe Streep’s turn as Britain’s polarizing, and only female, prime minister. The Iron Lady, in which Streep plays Thatcher both as a rising politician and as a confused, elderly woman looking back on her 1979-90 period in office, opened in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, and reaches British movie theaters on Jan. 6. Streep, 64, already has a record 16 Academy Award acting nominations.
