Oh, what to say about Meryl Streep? We heart her. And yes, we're delighted she took the leading actress award. She's also now officially the most nominated actor in the history of the Academy Awards.

Even though this was her 17th nomination, she's only won three Academy Awards.

We loved her speech too: "When they called my name, I had this feeling I could hear half of America going 'Oh no, come alive! Her again!' But, whatever. First, I'm gonna thank Don [her husband], because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech they play you out with the music, and I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives, you've give me."

It had us reaching for the tissues.
