2. Meryl Streep as Julia Child
Streep has proven she can do it all, so it's no surprise she nailed her performance as Julia Child in last year's Julie & Julia. She played the famous chef to perfection, according to critics, and she learned how to roast a perfect chicken in the process. She said, "When you talk about passion, Julia Child just didn’t have it for her husband or cooking; she had a passion for living."
