I totally smell Oscar all over this … here’s the newly released poster for The Iron Lady starring Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep as former British Prime Minster Margaret Thatcher (1979-1990). Meryl already has sixteen Oscar nominations winning twice (as for Golden Globes, she’s been nominated twenty-five times and won seven), I’ll bet right now she’s nominated once again! The film is releasing on December 16th, just in time to be considered for next year’s awards! I wonder what Ms. Thatcher (now age 85) thinks of this film adaptation of her life? Having Meryl play you I would imagine to be quite an honor!

The Iron Lady is a surprising and intimate portrait of Margaret Thatcher (Meryl Streep), the first and only female Prime Minister of The United Kingdom. One of the 20th century’s most famous and influential women, Thatcher came from nowhere to smash through barriers of gender and class to be heard in a male dominated world.
