Well, there's only a handful of movies that are left to weigh in on the awards season race. "J. Edgar" and "Young Adult" both bowed out of the hoopla of Venice/Telluride/TIFF and so did one other film, Meryl Streep's "The Iron Lady."

Just a couple of weeks ago, the first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated, and likely Meryl Streep Oscar vehicle, "The Iron Lady" hit the interwebs and it was a little...odd. In addition to being much more lightweight than we expected a film about Margaret Thatcher to be, the most curious aspect was that it was scored to Clint Mansell's “Welcome To Lunar Industries” from his excellent score for "Moon." Well, turns it out it wasn't just a lazy decision on behalf of whoever cut the trailer.

Way back in March, we predicted that the Academy Award race for Best Actress this year would come down to two stars both embodying icons in biopics: two-time nominee Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe in "My Week With Marilyn" and sixteen-time nominee Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady." This morning, The Guardian debuted the teaser trailer for the latter film, which follows the career of the much-feared, much-respected first female Prime Minister of the U.K. and frankly, we'd be surprised if Williams wasn't feeling a little more confident today.

It almost feel odd that, in such a strong year for Best Actress candidates, there's no place for Meryl Streep among a competing batch of contenders that include Natalie Portman and Annette Bening. Of course, it's principally because Streep hasn't made a film in the last year -- we're sure that, even if she'd cropped up for five minutes in "Yogi Bear," the Academy would have found some way to nominate her, the actress have being given a nod for three of the last four years (although she hasn't won since "Sophie's Choice" almost thirty years ago).
