Meryl Streep, renowned actress and singer, is an artist extraordinaire. Correctly termed as the ‘actress of the generation’, she is more than worthy of the name being the only artiste who has 21 Oscar nominations, along with a record 32 Golden Globe nominations under her belt. With an effortless beat, she successfully slips into every character, playing the roles convincingly. She manages to hide Meryl behind the mask, and breathes life into any part she plays, no matter how big or small, simple or extravagant. As we celebrate her 72nd birthday today, we present to you a list of some of her most acclaimed works.
