Hollywood’s veteran actress Meryl Streep is everybody’s darling. The brilliant actress has been nominated for Oscars 18 times in the past for her versatile roles over the years. This year, Meryl has set a record of most number of nominations for any actor across the world, being nominated 19th time for the prestigious Academy Awards.
Meryl Streep is already running way ahead with her most number of nominations for any actor. Behind her are actors Katharine Hepburn and Jack Nicholson with 13 nominations each.
For this year’s 87th Annual Academy Awards, Meryl Streep has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Disney’s “Into The Woods” along with fellow nominees, Patricia Arquette (Boyhood), Emma Stone (Birdman), Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game) and Laura Dern (Wild).
Previously, Ms Streep has won three Oscars. Best Actress for her role in “The Iron Lady” in 2012 and “Sophie’s Choice in 1983”, and Best Supporting Actress for “Kramer vs. Kramer” in 1980.
Even though Ms Streep is hoping for a fourth award this year, chances of her winning seem slim as fellow nominee “Boyhood” actress Patricia Arquette has already bagged the Golden Globe Award in the same category.
The 87th Academy Awards will take place on February 22. However, it will go on air early morning of February 23rd in India.
