Meryl Streep, who recently received her 30th Golden Globes nominations for ‘Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture,’ has made history with the most number of nods. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association nominated the 67-year-old ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’ star, who became the most-nominated performer in Golden Globes history in 2009 thanks to her double lead actress nominations for ‘Doubt’ and ‘Mamma Mia!’ which gave her 23 nominations and seven more since then, reports E! Online.

Streep also holds the records for most Golden Globe wins for her roles in Kramer vs. Karmer (1979), The French Lieutenant’s Woman (1981), Sophie’s Choice (1982), Adaptation (2002), Angels in America (2003), The Devil Wears Prada (2006), Julie & Julia (2009) and The Iron Lady (2010). Additionally, she will receive the ‘Cecil B. Demille Award’ at the ‘74th Golden Globe Award’ this year. Other contenders in the award category include Annette Bening for her role in ‘20th Century Women’, Lily Collins (Rules Don’t Apply), Hailee Steinfeld (The Edge of Seventeen) and Emma Stone (La La Land).

The Mamma Mia star summed up her excitement in a statement exclaiming, “AAAAGGGGHHHH!” Hugh Grant, who stars as Streep’s husband and manager, also received a nomination for ‘Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy’) while the movie ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’ is up for ‘Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.’ The winners will be announced on January 8, 2017, when Jimmy Fallon hosts the big event live on NBC.
