Three-time Oscar winner and 17-time nominee Meryl says she understands ‘Streep fatigue’
Meryl Streep seems to have remarkable perspective on why she had lost 12 consecutive times at the Oscars.
One gets the sense that had she not finally broken that Susan Lucci-esque losing streak last night and finally won a third Oscar (best actress for The Iron Lady), she would have been just fine and gone on having a wonderful life.
“I have I mean, I have everything I’ve ever dreamed of in my life,” she told reporters backstage after her win. “I mean, I think there’s room for other people. Frankly, I understand Streep Fatigue. And it shocks me, it shocked me that it didn’t override this tonight. So, I was really, really happy but I don’t take anything for granted, that’s for sure.”
