Meryl Streep celebrates record-breaking Oscar nod

Katie RamirezJan 25, 2017

Actors Jack Nicholson and Katharine Hepburn are tied for second with a respectable 12 nods each.

The inimitable Meryl Streep has broken her own record for most Oscar nominations ever, earning her 20th nomination for the 2016 Oscars for her role in Florence Foster Jenkins. She's spent almost forty years collecting nominations and wins, providing gracious statement after gracious statement and heartwarming speech after heartwarming speech.

The 67-year-old's nomination comes from her performance in the title role of "Florence Foster Jenkins".

So what does the great Meryl Streep have to say about her latest achievement?

As the Los Angeles Times tells it, a Paramount publicist sent out an email this morning saying, "Please find the following GIF as a statement on behalf of Meryl Streep". In the movie, Streep plays an aging socialite with dreams of being a singer, and obviously, she nails it. The GIF in question, which features Streep dancing, originates from the Paul McCartney music video "Queenie Eye". With an Oscar career as incredible as hers, she might as well make history once again by being the very first person to ever accept an award with a gif. Of the 20 times she's been nominated, she's won three times, for Sophie's Choice (1982 ceremony), Kramer v. Kramer (1979) and The Iron Lady (2012).
