Meryl Streep is the new queen of the Globes

Meryl Streep is the new queen of the Golden Globes as her win for best actress in a comedy or musical for “Julie & Julia” gives her seven statuettes to the half dozen owned by Jack Nicholson and Angela Lansbury.

This year, she was a double nominee — bringing her total tally to 25 — competing against herself in the comedy-musical actress with a bid for “It’s Complicated” as well. From her 21 movie nominations, Streep had won five Golden Globes — for her Oscar-winning roles in “Kramer vs. Kramer” (supporting, 1979) and “Sophie’s Choice” (lead drama, 1982) as well as “The French Lieutenant’s Woman” (lead drama, 1981), “Adaptation” (supporting, 2002) and “The Devil Wears Prada” (lead comedy/musical, 2006). Streep’s other Golden Globe came for a small screen role — lead actress in a TV movie or mini (“Angels in America,” 2004).

All of Nicholson’s six Globes and 17 nominations came for his work in the movies. He has won in all three movie acting categories: lead actor (drama) for “Chinatown” (1974),  “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (1975) and “About Schmidt” (2002), lead actor (comedy-musical) for “Prizzi’s Honor” (1985) and “As Good as It Gets” (1997), and supporting actor for “Terms of Endearment” (1983).

Lansbury won both of her supporting actress in a movie bids — “The Picture of Dorian Gray” (1945) and “The Manchurian Candidate” (1962) — and four of her 10 races for best actress in a TV drama series for “Murder She Wrote” (1984, 1986, 1989, 1991).
