Winning an Academy Award is one of those elusive achievements that most movie stars dream of. Many have died trying, some taking on edgy roles or even going tastefully nude onscreen in the pursuit of the golden statue. Still, precious few have been able to get one, let alone two, three or more. There are plenty who have garnered several nominations over the years, but not actual wins. Here are the celebs who have been inducted into that rare multiple Oscars club.
1. Meryl Streep
From her easy laugh to steely stares and many authentic accents in between, Meryl Streep is one of those actresses who wears her roles like a well-fitted cashmere sweater, and it’s no surprise that she’s hauled in three Oscars for her incredible acting (so far). With two Best Actress Awards for Sophie’s Choice (1982) and The Iron Lady (2011), and a Best Supporting Actress Award for Kramer Vs. Kramer (1979), she is one of the shining Academy Award standouts. Additionally, with nineteen nominations, Streep has amassed more than any other actress or actor in history!
2. Daniel Day-Lewis
The British actor might have been knighted for services to drama at Buckingham Palace in 2014, but one has to wonder if Daniel Day-Lewis holds his three Oscar wins in higher regard. He received Best Actor Awards for My Left Foot (1989), There Will Be Blood (2007), and Lincoln (2012). We wouldn’t be surprised if he gets another one or two throughout his career.
