Is there anything Meryl Streep can't do? After accruing a staggering 21 Oscar nominations throughout her career -- a record of her own making that she continues to break -- the answer is seemingly no. And the actress once again one-upped herself during this year's ceremony, thanks to yet another viral moment caught on camera.
You may recall that famous meme of Streep enthusiastically cheering, hands cupped around her mouth, that's been floating around the internet for a few years now. The moment in question was captured back in 2015, when Streep was showing her support for the late actress Debbie Reynolds, who was the recipient of the lifetime achievement statuette at the Screen Actors Guild Awards that year.
Well, at this year's Academy Awards ceremony, Best Actress nominee Streep -- seated in the front row, which is prime real estate for lots of reaction shots -- decided to bestow upon fans a similar celebratory shout. Those watching at home noticed immediately.

We'd still probably give the edge to the 2015 cheer, since it's shot from a better angle and thus appears a bit more exuberant. But thankfully, Meryl will probably be nominated a bajillion more times over the years, so she'll have plenty of chances to outdo herself yet again.
