MERYL Streep has done it yet again – the 68-year-old has chalked up a record-breaking 31 Golden Globe Award nominations for her acting, the latest being this week’s nomination for best actress in drama, for her performance in Steven Spielberg’s The Post.

Streep plays newspaper publisher Kay Graham in the film. It is set in the 1970s and centres on a cover-up that spanned four US Presidents. The cover-up pushed Graham, America’s first female newspaper publisher,  of The Washington Post,  and its tenacious editor, Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks), to join an unprecedented battle between journalist and government in publishing the Pentagon Papers.

The Post, which was selected by the US National Board of Review as the most outstanding film of 2017, raked in six Golden Globe nominations, the others being for direction (Spielberg), actor in a drama (Tom Hanks), screenplay (Liz Hannah and Josh Singer) and score (longtime Spielberg collaborator, John Williams).

In other interesting highlights from this year’s nominations, singer Mary J Blige is up a supporting actress award, for her role in the movie Mudbound; and Freddie Highmore (who was Charlie in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Norman Bates in Bates Motel), is up for an acting nod for The Good Doctor.

Nominations for the 75th Golden Globe Awards were announced in Los Angeles on Monday and will be presented at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, with  Seth Meyers as host, on January 7, 2018.

Produced by Dick Clark Productions in association with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the awards recognise and reward outstanding achievements in film and television, both domestic and foreign.
