Meryl Streep, Viola Davis, and Joi McMillon are just a few of the women who scored Oscars nominations Tuesday. And though the winners won’t be revealed until Feb. 26, these women are already making history.
For Streep, the Best Actress nomination for her performance in Florence Foster Jenkins marks her 20th Academy Award nomination, officially making her the most nominated performer in Oscars history. Streep won her first award in 1979 for Best Supporting Actress in Kramer vs. Kramer, followed by an Oscar for Best Actress in both Sophie’s Choice in 1983 and Iron Lady in 2012. To express her excitement after hearing the news, Streep’s publicist sent an appropriate GIF on her behalf.
Actress Viola Davis also made history Tuesday after receiving her third Oscars nomination — the first and only black actress to do so. Davis is up for Best Actress for her performance in Fences and was previously nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Doubt, as well as Best Actress for her performance in The Help.
The How to Get Away with Murder star (for which she won an Emmy in 2012) has already won a Golden Globe for her performance in Fences. Before Fences was a movie, it was a play, and Davis won a Tony Award for that performance too. So if she wins next month, she’ll only need a Grammy to achieve EGOT status, notes Mic — the title reserved for actors with an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony Award.
