Meryl Streep (the most nominated actor in history) through the years Image by: Getty Images
From her first nomination for The Deerhunter to her 20th nod in 2017 for Florence Foster Jenkins.
On Tuesday, January 24 Meryl Streep became the actor with the most academy award nominations ever, with 20. Which wasn't that much of a change, since she also held the previous record. Overrated? The academy certainly doesn't think so. And neither do fans, some of which have been following her career since The Deerhunter and some of which who were introduced to Streep in The Devil Wears Prada (both of which earned her nominations, by the way).
In honour of Streep's record-breaking year, we take a look back at some of her biggest career moments—and of course chart her style along the way.
Meryl Streep was nominated for the first time in 1979 for her role in The Deerhunter. Here she is in a classic lace outfit with sporting a killer blowout.
Streep won the Oscar for her role in Sophie's Choice in 1982. She wore a glitzy and roomy (she was pregnant at the time) gown to collect her award.
Here, Meryl Streep debuted a shorter 'do in 1983. We also love the sheer detail of her white ensemble.
In 1989 Streep stepped into the off-the-shoulder trend on the red carpet. She was nominated for her role in A Cry in the Dark.
In 2004 Streep won an Emmy for her role in Angels in America. She wore another off-the-shoulder look, will a full skirt and sash for a belt.
In 2005, Streep donned this white Valentino ensemble to Fashion Group International's Night of Stars. Later, Valentino himself would make an appearance in The Devil Wears Prada.
For an event with the Christopher Reeve Foundation in 2005, Streep wore a classic black suit and accessorized in great green earrings.
For the 2009 Academy Awards, where she was nominated for her role in Doubt, Streep wore this silky dress by Alberto Ferretti.
For her role in Julie & Julia, Streep won the Golden Globe. She wore a simple black dress by Chris March and accessorized with a strong red lip—perfect!
Meryl wowed the crowd (and matched her Oscar statuette) at the 2012 Academy Awards. She won for her role in The Iron Lady, and wore this stunning dress by Lanvin.
We're not used to seeing Meryl this dressed down, but this great MaxMara dress was a nice, light pick for the Oscar winner.
For the premiere of Suffragette in 2015, Streep wore an electric blue Lanvin gown.
Meryl Streep was both nominated (for her role in Florence Foster Jenkins) and honoured with the Cecil B. DeMIlle Award for her contribution to the entertainment industry. She delivered a passionate and inspiring speech in a bejewelled Givenchy dress that. It's safe to say, that this was Meryl's moment.
