YMMV: The Iron Lady
  • Consolation Award: Some people feel that Meryl Streep's Oscar win for this movie was to make up for the past 17 nominations in which she hadn't won.
  • Tear Jerker: Whatever your opinion on Margaret Thatcher, the ending, where she finds herself washing out a teacup after promising Denis she wouldn't end her life doing that, is tragic. For someone who was, above all else, strong to have fallen into such a pathetic condition is sad no matter what you think of the person she used to be.
    • How about the bit where she finally lets go of Denis?
      Margaret: I don't want to be alone.
      Denis: You'll be all right, you always have been.
      • Particularly poignant because you can't know whether he means "You've always been all right" or "You've always been alone".
      • Or alternatively "You've always been all right (even when you're) alone."
