Streep made her professional stage debut in The Playboy of Seville in 1971, and went on to receive a 1976 Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Play for A Memory of Two Mondays/27 Wagons Full of Cotton.

In 1978, she won an Emmy Award for her role in the miniseries Holocaust, and received the first of her 19 Academy Award nominations for The Deer Hunter.
She has more Academy Award nominations than any actor or actress in history, winning Best Supporting Actress for Kramer vs.
Kramer and Best Actress for Sophie's Choice and The Iron Lady.
Streep is one of only six actors who have won three or more competitive Academy Awards for acting.
