Meryl Streep got her 20th Oscar nomination for her portrayal of one of the worst opera singers of all time – Florence Foster Jenkins, which makes her the most nominated performer in Oscars history. She had to learn several arias for the Stephen Frears film: ’Then I had to learn how to sing them badly,’ she told the Daily Mail.
