The 64-year-old has five more nominations that both Katharine Hepburn and Jack Nicholson.

Thursday’s nomination was best actress in her latest film, “August: Osage County”.

Streep is also the most-monimated actor in Golden Globe history with 23 nods.

The Oscar statues will be handed out on March 2 in Los Angeles.
