Happy 60th Birthday Maryl Streep!


Great actress Meryl Streep turns 60 today. She holds the record for all-time academy award nominations. I take this from Wikipedia:

This is a list of
awards and nominations for Meryl Streep, whose acting career in motion pictures, television, and on stage spans over 30 years. As of 2009, Streep holds the record for the most acting Academy Award nominations received by any actor with 15; she has won twice (Best Supporting Actress for Kramer vs. Kramer in 1979 and Best Actress for Sophie's Choice in 1982). She also holds the record for the most Golden Globe Award nominations with 23, and along with Angela Lansbury and Jack Nicholson, she holds the record for the most Golden Globe wins with six.

In order to show you what a great actress she is, I am showing this montage from HBO miniseries Angels in America She plays four roles in this convincingly.
