Meryl Streep is a darling of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.; she's been nominated 26 times before and won eight times. But not even her most ardent admirers were expecting Streep to get much award-season traction from "Hope Springs," the mildly well-received comedy-drama that came out this summer. Then again, the HFPA nominated Streep for her performance in "She-Devil," opposite Roseanne Barr, so anything is possible.
