(She has seventeen Academy Award nominations, two wins, and 26 Golden Globe nominations, with eight wins--more than any other actor in the history of either award. So it's practically a million.)

2. She can do so many accents so well that her Wikipedia has a section dedicated SOLELY to them

"When asked whether accents help her get into character, she responded, 'I'm always baffled by this question... How could I play that part and talk like me?' "

4. She did this really great duet with Pierce Brosnan in "Mamma Mia!"

Much like Meryl's many accents, she's totally willing to go the distance with makeup in her roles, even if she looks terrible. For her, it's part of the role.

10. She ISN'T Glenn Close

Inexplicably, a lot of people have Meryl confused with Glenn Close, who's practically a B-movie star at this point. How? WHY?? I mean, she hasn't even won a single Oscar, and only two Golden Globes. There's virtually no similarities here.
