Streep is nominated for Actress in a Leading Role for her performance in Florence Foster Jenkins. Streep plays Florence Foster Jenkins, an heiress whose enthusiasm for singing is so pronounced that — despite her lack of talent — she decides to give a concert at Carnegie Hall.
Other Best Actress in a Leading Role nominees include:
- Isabelle Huppert, Elle
- Ruth Negga, Loving
- Natalie Portman, Jackie
- Emma Stone, La La Land
This is the first nomination for both Isabelle Huppert and Ruth Negga.
Ruth Negga portrays Mildred, an African-American woman whose love for Richard, her white husband, winds up changing laws prohibiting interracial marriages in the United States.
As Michèle, Isabelle Huppert plays a successful CEO who refuses to go to the police when she is raped, instead resolving to find the culprit on her own.
As Jackie Kennedy, Natalie Portman portrays the grieving and intensely private First Lady, who seeks to ensure her late husband’s legacy — and her own — following his assassination.

Emma Stone plays Mia, an aspiring actress who juggles her love for a jazz pianist with her attempts to find her own path to success.
The 89th Oscars will be held on Sunday, Feb. 26 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
