We only have a few more days to wait until we discover who has won big at this years Academy Awards, with some of the biggest names in Hollywood in with a chance of taking home some of the biggest awards. One of the most exciting categories at this years Oscars is the Best Actress in a Leading Role, although they are all looking exciting this year.
The Best Actress in a Leading Role category could also see a little bit of history made, with Meryl Streep in the running for the award. Over the course of her career, Meryl Streep has been nominated for an Oscar on a staggering 18 separate occasions, more than any other star in the history of the Academy Awards, while she has managed to take home three Oscars along the way.
Meryl Streep won her first Oscar back in 1980 for the movie Kramer vs. Kramer, where she took home the Best Supporting Actress Oscar. Meryl then went on to win the Best Leading Actress Oscar in 1983 for her role in the movie Sophie's Choice, before finally landing the Best Leading Actress Oscar for The Iron Lady in 2012. If Meryl Streep was to win her fourth Oscar this Sunday, she would tie Katharine Hepburn for the most Oscar wins.
As well as having Meryl Streep for August: Osage County, the rest of the Best Actress in a Leading Role Oscar nominees are Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine, Judi Dench for Philomena, Sandra Bullock for Gravity and Amy Adams for American Hustle. Who would you like to see win?
The 86th Academy Awards takes place on March 2.
