Typical reactions to Oscar nominations consist of a “thank you” or a brief (sometimes emotional) statement.
However, Meryl Streep expressed her “thank you” differently this year when she received her 20th Oscars nomination. Her reaction statement is simply a GIF of herself happily dancing in joy.
Streep was nominated for her starring role in Florence Foster Jenkins, which she also received a Golden Globe nomination for. She was honored with the esteemed Cecil B. DeMille Award at this year’s Golden Globes, where she gave a passionate acceptance speech including her feelings on the presidential election.
Streep was most recently nominated for her performance in 2015’s “Into the Woods”. Of the 20 times she’s been nominated, she has won three statues for her roles in the 2011 film “The Iron Lady, the 1982 film “Sophie’s Choice”, and the 1979 film “Kramer v. Kramer”.
The ceremony itself will take place February 26th.
