She can only better herself. And sometimes she does it in style. This was one of those moments. Meryl Streep celebrated her Oscar nomination with – wait a moment – an unbelievable GIF! She beat her own record by getting the 20th Oscar nomination and what did that do to her? Jump with joy? Do a quick tap dance or a graceful headbang? Call it whatever but this could be the GIF of 2017! Already? You bet!

Meryl Streep is now the most nominated actress in history with 20 nominations! Another fact for "Not Overrated"!
Meryl Streep is now the most nominated actress in history with 20 nominations. And so when she presumably got so many calls to congratulate her and get her reaction, she thought sending a gif was a perfect answer. Woo hoo. How cool is that?
