AceShowbiz - As the 2017 Oscar nominations have been revealed, Meryl Streep, again, receives her nomination for Best Actress category. Her latest nod for her role as questionably-talented opera singer in "Florence Foster Jenkins" marks her 20th. It breaks the record for most Oscar nominations, beating out her rival, the late Katharine Hepburn who had 12.
In response to the historic moment, the Hollywood icon chose to celebrate it with a memeable GIF. On Tuesday morning, January 24, Paramount sent an email to entertainment journalists celebrating the studio's Oscar nominations. The studio publicist wrote, "Please find the following GIF as a statement on behalf of Meryl Streep." And here it is, a GIF in which "The Devil Wears Prada" star dances in joy.
The GIF is apparently originated from Paul McCartney's 2013 music video for "Queenie Eye". Along with Streep, the music video also features other celebrities such as Jude Law, Johnny Depp and Sean Penn. The "Into the Woods" actress is seen dancing to the music just like in the GIF at 3:27.
Some of Streep's remarkable Oscar nominations include best actress nominations for "Sophie's Choice" (1983), "The Bridges of Madison County" (1996) and "The Devil Wears Prada" (2007). She was also nominated for supporting actress several times, including for her roles in "The Deer Hunter" (1979), "Kramer vs. Kramer" (1980) and "Into the Woods" (2015). Out of 20 nominations, Streep earned three Academy Awards. The three statues were for "Kramer vs. Kramer", "Sophie's Choice" and "The Iron Lady". Earlier this year, the "Julie & Julia" star received the Cecil B. Demille Award for lifetime achievement at the Golden Globes where she slammed President Donald Trump in her acceptance speech.
The 89th Annual Academy Awards will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on February 26. It will air live on ABC starting at 7 P.M. ET. The Oscar ceremony will also be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
