'''Mary Louise "Meryl" Streep''' (born 1949), widely acknowledged by critics and fans alike as the best actress working today, broke Oscar nomination records with her nomination for Best Supporting Actress (''Film/{{Adaptation}}''). Now with [[OscarBait nineteen Oscar nominations]] and three wins to her credit, she has tackled virtually every genre in Hollywood, including romantic comedies (''Film/DefendingYourLife''), serious dramas (''Film/SophiesChoice'', ''Doubt''), action-adventure (''The River Wild''), comedies (''Film/SheDevil'', ''Film/DeathBecomesHer''), classic romances (''Film/OutOfAfrica''), and even two musicals (''Film/MammaMia'' and ''Film/IntoTheWoods''). Easily identified by her trademark nose, she has also appeared in, among others, ''Film/TheDevilWearsPrada'', ''Silkwood'', ''Theatre/AngelsInAmerica'' (as an [[SerialEscalation elderly male rabbi]], among others), and ''Film/JulieAndJulia''. She's probably best known for starring in ''SophiesChoice'', ''TheDevilWearsPrada'' and ''ACryInTheDark''.

She has been described as "the successor to Creator/BetteDavis," and in fact Davis herself endorsed Meryl's early work. Her versatility and ability to act with her eyes and face are now unique in Hollywood, but the talent evident in every film is reminiscent of Davis at her best. Onscreen she plays characters with tremendous depth, but oddly Meryl has no 'trademark' - she transforms herself completely for each role she plays in a way no Hollywood actress has done before or since. (Her facility with accents is one of the most praised weapons in her arsenal.) Although critics have described her as 'robotic' and 'acting from the neck up,' recent movies like ''MammaMia'' provide evidence to the contrary.
