Besides her record 29 nominations, Streep was recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with the Cecile B DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award earlier this year. The actor used her time on the stage to read out a heartfelt political speech that criticized President Donald Trump and his policies.

Streep’s first Golden Globe nomination was in the best supporting actress category for the 1978 film The Deer Hunter.

She continued winning awards and nominations at the Golden Globe with films such as Kramer vs Kramer, The French Lieutenant’s Woman, Sophie’s Choice, Silkwood and The Iron Lady among many others.
