Meryl Monday: When Miss Streep visited Ellen!
At the time of this appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Meryl Streep had 13 Academy Award nominations on her resume. Ellen pointed this out that this was a record and Meryl remarked that she had also lost the Oscar more times than anyone else!
Meryl, who was on the show to promote her 2005 comedy Prime, has earned three more Oscar nods since that appearance for The Devil Wears Prada, Doubt and Julie & Julia and lost even more!
It doesn’t matter to her legions of fans of she ever does win that elusive third Oscar because as the years have gone on, Meryl has become such a beloved star and major box office draw. It has mostly to do with her astonishing strong of performances in movies dating back to Julia in 1977 but also it has to do with her great humor and down to Earth quality which we see in this appearance with Ellen.
