Ten best Streeps and new Streeps

While agreeing with me that Meryl Streep is the best actress in the history of movies, writer Sasha Stone decided to (1) compile a list of the 10 best Streep performances and (2) the top 10 young actresses most likely to "win an Oscar either soon or at some point in the near future."

The top 10 Streep performances are (named without seeing Julie and Julia):
1. Sophie's Choice
2. The Devil Wears Prada
3. Postcards From the Edge
4. Silkwood
5. Doubt
6. Kramer vs. Kramer
7. Manhattan
8. Out of Africa
9. One True Thing
10. The Bridges of Madison County

The top 10 young actresses:
1. Carey Mulligan
2. Amy Adams
3. Keira Knightley
4. Ann Hathaway
5. Natalie Portman
6. Rachel McAdams
7. Abbie Cornish
8. Ellen Page
9. Saoirse Ronan
10. (tie) Keke Palmer, Rebecca Hall

While I'm sure Ms. Mulligan will be nominated for an Oscar next year and might even win it, she doesn't have enough of a track record for me to list her at the top of such a list. I would put the top pictured Amy Adams No. 1 with me followed by the next-pictured Ms. Hathaway.
