Meryl Streep has three Oscars and 19 nominations. Something she didn't have coming into this weekend? An MTV Movie Award. Well, she can cross that one off the ole' bucket list.

Awards season's truly dominant champion took home a Golden Popcorn statue for Best Villain at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards Sunday. Her performance in the musical “Into the Woods” beat out Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”) as well as Jillian Bell (“22 Jump Street”), Peter Dinklage (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”) and Oscar nominee Rosamund Pike (“Gone Girl”).

While Streep may be a perennial fixture on the Oscar circuit, though, this was only her second MTV nomination to date. She was also nominated in the Best Villain category eight years ago for “The Devil Wears Prada,” which also netted her an Oscar nomination. And a fun fact: She lost that year to fellow Oscar magnet Jack Nicholson (“The Departed”).
