Meryl Streep's Best Literary Adaptations?

On Donald Trump’s first full day as president of the United States, I thought I’d post an article about Meryl Streep, the actress whom Trump thinks is “highly overrated.”  She has had 29 Golden Globe nominations , 19 Oscar nominations (winning three), and was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Outstanding Contributions to the World of Entertainment. 

Signature recently compiled a list of “Meryl Streep’s 10 Best Book-Based Movie Roles” with this introduction:   “Like many other great actors, Streep’s career has a strong literary underpinning. Adaptations make up a significant portion of her cinematic output. . . . And given that adaptations make up more than half of her Golden Globes nominations (and quite a bit more of her Oscar nods), each of these roles was nominated for both a Golden Globe and an Oscar.”  See the list at
