When you’ve got as many Oscar nominations as, it’s easy to forget a couple.
The star ofholds the record for most nominations at 20, and last night, late night host Jimmy Kimmel challenged her to name all the movies in 60 seconds.
Kimmel, who is hosting this year’s Academy Awards ceremony, told Streep, “If you’re able to name them, I will give you this bonus Oscar.”
Streep started out strong, naming “The French Lieutenant’s Woman,” “Kramer vs. Kramer” (for which she won in 1980), “Silkwood,” and “Sophie’s Choice” (for which she won in 1983). Then she began to falter.
She cited “A Cry in the Dark” (1989), and when Kimmel said no, Streep gasped, “Why?! Why? I was robbed!”
Actually, though — Streep was right! “A Cry in the Dark” was released under the title “Evil Angels,” and the actress was nominated. Recount!
