Meryl STONED? The idea! Still, because she is Meryl, she's makes it believable.

12. Music of the Heart

Miramax Films

Like Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act 2, Meryl excels as a teacher in an underprivileged school who inspires a group of misfit teens through music. This is what Oscar noms are made of.

11. One True Thing

One word: goosebumps.

10. The Bridges of Madison County

Meryl and Clint Eastwood as star crossed lovers who have an intense moment in the pouring rain? There's a reason that this is everyone's mom's favorite movie.

Had Meryl's life got another way, her acting career could have turned out like her character's in Postcards From The Edge. *shudders*

TriStar Pictures

The New York Times said of this role: 'Streep uses the role of Helen as an opportunity to deliver a stunning impersonation of a darty-eyed, fast-talking woman of the streets, an angry, obdurate woman with great memories and no future.'

6. Out Of Africa

Meryl was out of this world in Out of Africa.

You know when you team that fierceness that is Meryl up with a diva like Cher, you are bound for cinematic perfection.

4. Sophie's Choice

Universal Pictures

Sophie's Choice was Meryl's career changing role. By this point she already had one Academy Award under her belt, but her performance as a mother facing an impossible decision was one of the best of that decade.

It's no wonder she would only do that scene in one take and refused to do it again, because she found it so painful and emotionally draining.

3. The French Lieutenant's Woman

In this film, Meryl plays two different characters. Talk about range!

2. Kramer vs. Kramer

Columbia Pictures

Meryl's first win at the Oscars was for this role. She made this role of a young mother with too many responsibilities so endearing.

1. The Deer Hunter

A star is born.

Yay Meryl!

Meryl holds seven more Oscar nominations than both Katharine Hepburn and Jack Nicholson, who are tied in second place.

Bow down bitches
