Monday, February 27, 2012're telling me there's a chance: Double Oscar Winners for Acting

"'re telling me there's a chance...YEA!"
-Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey), Dumb & Dumber

Meryl Streep has now won a 3rd Oscar for acting - joining a very small club of 3 time Academy Award winners in the acting category. She joins other three timers Ingrid Bergman, Walter Brennan, and Jack Nicholson.

Katherine Hepburn is the only actor or actress with four Oscar wins in the acting category.

So, Streep proves that three is still achievable (although it might take 17 nominations to make that happen).

Below is a list of people who perhaps were cheering on the inside when she won, saying in the spirit of Lloyd Christmas, "'re telling me there's a chance."
