HOL­LY­WOOD ac­tress Meryl Streep has stuck two fin­gers up to new US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump by be­com­ing the first star to be nom­i­nated for 20 Os­cars.

She re­ceived a Best Ac­tress nod for her role in Florence Fos­ter Jenk­ins.

Trump fa­mously la­belled her “over-rated” in a ju­ve­nile Twit­ter re­sponse to her crit­i­cis­ing him at the Golden Globes ear­lier this month.

Hol­ly­wood mu­si­cal La La Land has tied with Ti­tanic and All About Eve to be­come one of the most nom­i­nated films in the Acad­emy’s his­tory, rack­ing up 14 nods.

Bri­tish stars An­drew Garfield, Naomie Har­ris and Dev Pa­tel lead the Bri­tish hopes for Os­car


glory, with nods for their work in Hack­saw Ridge, Moon­light and Lion re­spec­tively.

Streep is nom­i­nated for Best Ac­tress for her role as a tone-deaf opera singer along­side Irish-Ethiopian star Ruth Negga for Lov­ing, French star Is­abelle Hup­pert for Elle, Natalie Port­man for Jackie and Emma Stone for La La Land.

Garfield, who re­ceived a nod for his per­for­mance as a US Army medic in Mel Gib­son’s war drama, will go up against Ryan Gosling, nom­i­nated for La La Land, and Casey Af­fleck for Manch­ester By The Sea.

The stars are joined by Den­zel Wash­ing­ton, who is rec­om­mended for Fences and Viggo Mortensen, pro­posed for Cap­tain Fan­tas­tic.

Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire star Pa­tel is in line for the Best Sup­port­ing Ac­tor gong for play­ing a young man sep­a­rated from his fam­ily in Lion.

He is nom­i­nated along­side Ma­her­shala Ali for Moon­light, Jeff Bridges for Hell Or High Wa­ter, Lu­cas Hedges for Manch­ester By The Sea and Michael Shan­non for Noc­tur­nal An­i­mals.

Naomie Har­ris has landed her first Os­car nom­i­na­tion for her role as a drug ad­dict in Moon­light. She’s up for the sup­port­ing ac­tress gong along­side Vi­ola Davis for Fences, Michelle Wil­liams for Manch­ester By The Sea, Ni­cole Kid­man for Lion and Oc­tavia Spencer for Hid­den Fig­ures.
