Do you remember who won the Academy Award in 2008 for Best Actress or the year Cate Blanchett received her second golden statue? Not to worry, we’ve got the details.
Marion Cotillard got top honors in 2008 for her role as Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. 2014 was the year Cate Blanchett scored Oscar No. 2. The last 10 years have seen Kate Winslet, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Lawrence, and Emma Stone become first-time Oscar winners. We can’t forget the queen of the acting world, Meryl Streep. She’s been nominated 21 times (wow), and she’s taken home three statues. Her third win came in 2012, for her performance as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady.
This year, Streep is nominated again! Who runs the world — Meryl! She joins Sally Hawkins, Margot Robbie, Frances McDormand, and Saoirse Ronan in the Actress in a Leading Role category.
The winner will be announced at the 90th Academy Awards airing Sunday, March 4.
