Meryl Streep has gotten more Oscar love than any other actress, but doesn’t share the affection for this year’s picks. She told Ellen deGeneres she was “surprised” by the “injustices,” to actors who were passed over this year.

There were so many performances that year that were great. I’m thinking of my friend Emma Thompson,” she said.

“I wrote her a long, heartfelt email saying how bad I felt, and she wrote me back and said, ‘Good,’” Streep recounted. “I’m surprised at the injustices.”

Over her career, Meryl has one a stagger 119 film awards, including three Oscars and 18 Oscar nominations. She also has been nominated for a Golden Globe 28 times and won eight statues. In all she’s received more nominations than any other actor in Oscar and Globe history.

She last won the Oscar for her performance as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the 2011’s “Iron Lady.” She’s been nominated for a Best Actress Oscar this year for the comedy drama “August: Osage County,” a film adaptation of playwright Tracy Letts’ award-winning Broadway play.

In addition to Thompson, Streep also lamented that Tom Hanks was passed over for an Oscar for his role in the film “Captain Phillips.”

As for her own nomination, Streep was characteristically self-deprecating. “I’m old news,” said the 64-year-old actress.
