42-year-old Julia Roberts is reportedly in talks to team up with 61-year-old Meryl Streep, playing mother and daughter in a film adaptation of the Tony-winning play August: Osage County.

Both actresses are already committed to the roles and just ironing out the details, reports Deadline New York.

The film, which is written by John Wells based on the play by Tracy Letts, is about a drug-addicted matriarch (to be played by Streep) who's children, led by her eldest daughter (Roberts) rally around her when her husband goes missing.

Sounds like a laugh!

Meryl Streep May Be Teaming Up With Tina Fey In New Movie

Jul 16, 2010 12:55 PM

She's already starred in Mamma Mia, but now Meryl Streep may be appearing in a new film called Mommy & Me directed by The Devil Wears Prada co-star Stanley Tucci -- with Tina Fey playing her daughter!

Although the title is still tentative, the project would team two of the funniest female performers today (yep, Streep's a comedienne!) onscreen.

There's no script yet, reports the LA Times, but would you pass up the chance to see Streep and Fey play mother and daughter?

I mean, no offense to Amanda Seyfried, but I think they'd make a much better mother/daughter team!

Sandra To Meryl: "I'm Gonna Cut You!"

Feb 3, 2010 09:51 AM

We love a good, old-fashioned cat fight!

Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep have been playfully squabbling over awards this year as the two keep getting nominated for their roles in The Blind Side and Julie & Julia, respectively.

Now the two are both nominated for an Oscar! So Sandra told The AP: "With Meryl, when this whole thing started, I left her a voice mail going, 'You've got to watch your back. I'm gonna cut you. I'm gonna take you down.' And then she sent me dead orchids and told me to die, so I sent her a case of liquor and told her to toast to white trash."

Ohhhh, the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Hilarious!

X17's 2010 Oscar Predictions!

Jan 20, 2010 05:00 PM

oscar2010picks.jpg

After watching the Golden Globes this Sunday, X17online has decided to predict the principal nominees for the upcoming 82nd Academy Awards!

The actual nominees will be announced on February 2, 2010.

    BEST PICTURE - There will be ten nominees this year, so watch out! You can probably expect Avatar, The Hurt Locker, Inglourious Basterds, Precious, Up, Up in the Air and maybe even Nine... but what about box office hits like Star Trek and the MJ doc This Is It? Not to mention indie winners like District 9 or the star-studded drama Brothers.

    BEST ACTOR - Jeff Bridges from Crazy Heart feels like the winner here, but George Clooney from Up in the Air and Jeremy Renner from The Hurt Locker will likely get noms. Then there's indie faves Colin Firth for A Single Man and Viggo Mortensen for The Road. Personally, I think Joseph Gordon-Levitt should get a nomination for (500) Days of Summer, but I know he won't!

    BEST ACTRESS - It's Meryl Streep in Julie & Julia versus Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side. Oh, and the lovely Carey Mulligan for An Education, but she won't win. Who's your pick - Meryl or Sandra? I think it's Sandra's year!

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR - I think it's down to Matt Damon in Invictus (he's never won an acting Oscar) and Christoph Waltz in Inglourious Basterds. Also, a shout out to the great Stanley Tucci who creeped everyone out in The Lovely Bones.

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS - Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick will cancel each other out, sadly, for Up in the Air, leaving Mo'Nique to win for Precious. Still, I'm hoping for Anna!

    BEST DIRECTOR - James Cameron for Avatar, hands down. Also in the running? Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker, Jason Reitman for Up in the Air and Quentin Tarantino - who should win - for Inglourious Basterds. Oh, and maybe they'll give Clint Eastwood a nod for Invictus... he always gets nominated!

But the question on everyone's mind is, will Avatar win Best Picture at the Academy Awards, just like it did at the Golden Globes? Does James Cameron have another Titanic on his hands?

And more importantly, does it deserve to win???




X17 Poll

Does Avatar deserve to win Best Picture at the Oscars?

Yes! Not only was it beautiful to look at, it was also the year's best film.
No! It looked pretty, but the story was pretty standard.
It will win, but only because of box office glory.

Sandra Bullock Swaps Spit With Streep, Swears At Critics' Choice Awards

Jan 16, 2010 08:33 AM

Last night at the Critics' Choice Awards, Sandra Bullock was so elated that she tied Meryl Streep for Best Actress (for The Blind Side) that she gave Streep an Adrien Brody-style smooch on the stage!

After Streep won for her role as Julia Child in Julie & Julia, Sandra's name was called. As she took to the stage, she screamed "This is bullsh*t!" before grabbing Streep and planting a big one on her.

"To the critcs, I bet you never saw this coming ... You probably never will again," said Bullock in a surprisingly funny speech. "Thank you so much, I don't know what to say, but Meryl's a great kisser!"

But the big winner of the night was The Hurt Locker, which won best picture and best director.

Full list of winners below...
