After the jump, Meryl Streep rocks her best Blue Steel as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady. I don’t know much about history, but it seems like Iron Mike would’ve kicked her ass. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, broads just don’t have the upper-body strength. Anyway, blah blah pearls, accents, hats, a stiff upper lip, the Falklands War — it’ll probably win an Oscar if it’s any good at all, because if there’s one thing Oscar voters love, it’s boring-ass old British farts politicking. OI, GUV, DE OL’ BIRD’S GOT A MASTAH’S TOUCH WIFF DA TORIES, SHE DOES, BUT IF DA MISSUS FANNY DON’T SNOG DA COMMON PUNTAHS, DA BARRISTAH WON’ FOX ‘UNT.
They wanted her to ditch the pearls, but she wouldn’t! Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. This comes from Mamma Mia director Phyllida Lloyd and opens December 16th, just in time for Oscar season. How are Imogen Poots and Benedict Cumberbatch not in it? Travesty.
