This week, Meryl Streep made Academy Award history with an epic 18th Oscar nomination for her role in August: Osage County. The movie veteran has scooped the top prize three times, for Best Supporting Actress in Kramer vs. Kramer and Best Actress gongs for Sophie's Choice in 1982 and The Iron Lady in 2011.
But in years to come, who will be the next big thing gaining almost annual recognition from the Academy? The likes of Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook), Zoe Saldana (Avatar), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale) are names often found on 'ones to watch' lists - who would you add?
