Totally “overrated,” though. Right, Donald J. Trump?
Meryl Streep was nominated for her 20th Academy Award, proving yet again why she’s considered one of the greatest actors of all time. Streep, who won the Cecil B. DeMille Award at this year’s Golden Globe Awards, broke her own record with Tuesday’s nomination ― Actress in a Leading Role ― for the film “Florence Foster Jenkins.”
Streep shared the following gif to show her excitement in a statement obtained by The Los Angeles Times.
People on social media were delighted to see Streep’s name in the category. People also couldn’t help but call out President Donald Trump, who called the actress overrated after she directed her Golden Globes speech at him.

Congratulations to Meryl Streep on earning her 20th Oscar nomination despite being overrated according to a raving moron.
