Meryl Streep Breaks Her Own Oscar Record With Steven Spielberg-Directed Drama

Steven Spielberg-directed drama about the publishing of the Pentagon Papers also picked up a nomination for Best Picture, but failed to gain much traction in other categories.

“I am honored beyond measure by this nomination for a film I love, a film that stands in defense of press freedom, and inclusion of women’s voices in the movement of history,” she said in a statement. “Proud of the film, and all her filmmakers. Thank you from a full heart.”

We’re not going to list all of Streep’s nominations here, but some greatest hits include “Kramer vs. Kramer,” “Sophie’s Choice,” “Out of Africa,” “One True Thing,” “The Devil Wears Prada” and “August: Osage County.”

Katharine Hepburn and Jack Nicholson trail Streep in a two-way tie for second place with each scoring a dozen nominations over their career.

Streep has won the award for Best Actress three times, most recently in 2012 for her performance as former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady.”

The actress’ competition is stiff this year with front-runners Frances McDormand and Saoirse Ronan in her category ― McDormand is steadily in the lead scoring a Screen Actors Guild award over the weekend ― but the timely nature of “The Post” could rule in her favor.

And if it doesn’t, we fully expect Streep to be back here next year, because she’s what? The Greatest of All Time.
