The iconic Hollywood actress Meryl Streep becomes the first Hollywood star to be nominated for the 20th Oscar, as she has been nominated in the category of Best Actress for her part in Florence Foster Jenkins.
However, the three times Oscar winner Meryl Streep will have a fierce competition in the category from Ruth Negga for Loving, Natalie Portman for the movie Jackie, Isabelle Huppert for the film Elle and obviously the favourite Emma Stone from La La Land.
Meryl Streep, 67, was first nominated for Oscar in the year 1979 for the film titled The Deer Hunter, in the category of Best Supporting Actress. However, she lost the award to Maggie Smith for the film California Suite.
Ultimately, she won the first Oscar for her movie Kramer vs Kramer in the year 1980.
Meryl Streep is very excited to get her 20th Oscar nomination which came after she openly slammed President Donald Trump on the stage of Golden Globe Awards 2017. Streep, who is an ardent follower of Hillary Clinton took down Donald Trump in her award acceptance speech.
In reply to which Trump even called her an over-rated actress. "Meryl Streep, one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a Hillary flunky who lost big." Stated Trump.
But this award nomination proved enough to silence her critics all over.
