Meryl Streep (2/7)

President Donald Trump may think Meryl Streep is an overrated actor, but the Academy has pointed to her, time and again, as one of the industry’s best. If Streep wins the Best Actress award for her role in Florence Foster Jenkins she will tie the legendary Katharine Hepburn for the most acting awards at four. Streep’s nomination alone made history; she broke her own record for most nominations for a single person. She has 2o, well ahead of those in second place with 12: Hepburn and Jack Nicholson. Streep’s portrayal of Jenkins, an heiress from New York City who’s overconfident in her own operatic talent, earned her Best Actress nominations at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards, but she lost out to Emma Stone, star of La La Land, both times.
