Although Meryl has been nominated for an incredible 15 Oscars® in her lifetime, she says she still gets nervous during the award shows. "Absolutely I get nervous," she says. "And also being nominated [15] times, I have lost more than anybody, I think. So I know what that feels like too."

Meryl says she tries not to get caught up in the drama of jewels and dresses surrounding the award shows. "That part just kind of drives me insane," she says. "In a long career like mine, you just want to disappear into these roles, and it's harder and harder and harder. The more that you're out there, the more exposed you are for people to believe you are who you believe you are in each role."
