Less than a day after Donald Trump lashed out at Meryl Streep via Twitter, describing her as "one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood," the star landed her 15th nomination from the British Academy.
While her shortlisting in the best actress category for Florence Foster Jenkins may not have broken any records, Streep's latest BAFTA nomination comes some 38 years after her first in 1979 (for best supporting actress in Manhattan).
Since then, she's won twice, for The French Lieutenant's Woman in 1981 and The Iron Lady in 2011, and has been a regular attendee at »

Meryl Streep may reign over the Oscars, but her real kingdom is the Golden Globes.
Her nomination for Florence Foster Jenkins this year -- as Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical -- marks her 30th in 38 years. She will also receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the first person to get that honor in the same year as a nomination in over two decades. (Sophia Loren managed it in 1995.)

The 74th Golden Globe Awards are just around the corner, and Hollywood’s favorite golden girl is nominated once again!
Legendary actress Meryl Streep has scored a record-breaking 30th nod — more than any other actor in the history of the Globes. Since 1979, the actress has consistently racked up nods for her acting throughout her lengthy career. In fact, Streep has only been kept off the ballot just 12 years out of the 37 since her first nod — doubling up on nominations in 2003, 2009 and 2010.
Take a look back on her long history with the Globes, and a beginning steeped in tragedy.

Meryl Streep was born in New Jersey, but she belongs to the world. A legit national treasure, her prestige as untouchable as Margaret Thatcher's steely resolve and shellacked hair in The Iron Lady, Streep could quit making movies today and still be name-checked nine out of 10 times for the next 50 years when someone is asked who their favorite actress is.
