Paragon of elegance and style, distant from the Hollywood star system, Meryl Streep is one of the most awarded actresses of all time, especially for her refined ability to interpret the complexity of the female soul, ranging from drama to comedy. Nominated for 19 Academy Awards, she has won two for Best Actress for Sophie's Choice (1982) and The Iron Lady (2011) and one for Best Supporting Actress for Kramer vs. Kramer (1979). She has also won eight Golden Globes, two BAFTA Awards, two Emmy Awards and two Screen Actor’s Guild, as well as many major awards in key world festivals, among which: the 1989 Prix d'interprétation féminine (Best Actress Award) at the Cannes Film Festival for A Cry in the Dark; in 2002 the Silver Bear for Best Actress for The Hours, and in 2012 the Honorary Golden Bear at the Berlin Festival. In 2004 she was awarded an AFI Life Achievement Award from the American Film Institute for her contribution to the history of cinema. In 2015 she won the umpteenth Golden Globe and Oscar nomination for her role as a wicked witch in Into the Woods by Rob Marshall. In the same year she has acted with her daughter Mamie Gummer in Ricki and the Flash, by Jonathan Demme, where she plays a rock star who returns home to reconcile with her family, and in the historical drama Suffragette, in which she interprets the British political activist Emmeline Pankhurst.
