I've seen way more Meryl films than films from the other two so she is the obvious choice for me. She has some absolutely killer performances - Sophie's Choice, Silkwood, Doubt, Mamma Mia, Kramer vs. Kramer to name just a few. Always impresses me how she can do comedy so well too (Death Becomes Her, Devil Wears Prada etc.), I wish she did it more to be honest laugh.gif

A bit ashamed that I've actually only seen ONE Jack Nicholson film (Terms of Endearment) so I must change that in 2018. I have Chinatown on DVD so I'll get around to that one first at some point !!

Tough call!
They're all great but for me Nicholson is the patchiest in his choice of roles and can be lazy in his performances sometimes, so he's out in the first round. Sadly, as The Shining is one of my favourite performances by any actor ever.

However, Streep and Day-Lewis are both without compare and it's cruel on whoever you put aside. That being said I'm plumping for Day-Lewis as his choice of role tends to be more demanding or challenging. Streep too often picks more straightforward or traditional roles, even if she does knock it out the park every time.
To balance that Streep has a much larger body of work to pick so there are bound to be more mis-steps than Daniel because he has chosen to be more selective in the films he signed on for. Equally Meryl has been a trailblazer for women in cinema and is a greater role model to aspire to (although they're both titans of acting).

But I'm still picking him as the better actor overall.
