Meryl Streep Responds to Oscar Nomination With a GIF

Viola Davis with her Golden Globe for best supporting actress

US actress Meryl Streep on Tuesday was nominated for her 20th Academy Award, making her the most nominated performer in Oscars history and maintaining her reign as the queen of Hollywood.

She has 30 nominations at the Golden Globes, establishing a record there as well.

The 67-year-old's nomination comes from her performance in the title role of "Florence Foster Jenkins".

A publicist from Paramount declared: "Please find the following GIF as a statement on behalf of Meryl Streep".

It's an unbelievable honor for Streep to hold not only both the honor of 20 nominations but also the record she continues to hold for most nominations any single actor has had, so it's good to see that she's properly enjoying it. In her choice of reaction, Streep proved herself not only an expert at acting but an internet artist as well, because her gift seemed to sum up her feelings perfectly. Streep, who is an ardent follower of Hillary Clinton took down Donald Trump in her award acceptance speech. The GIF in question, which features Streep dancing, originates from the Paul McCartney music video "Queenie Eye".
