Hardly a Sophie’s choice: Meryl Streep is your favorite multiple Best Actress Oscar winner [POLL RESULTS]

Meryl Streep’s twin wins are twice as nice for you. With 36 percent of the vote, Streep beat out her 13 fellow multiple Best Actress Oscar winners in our poll asking for your favorite.

“Meryl Streep is the most versatile, amazing actress of my lifetime,” user John K. commented.

Streep is the most recent multiple Best Actress champ, winning for “The Iron Lady” (2011) 29 years after her first triumph for “Sophie’s Choice” (1982). But she’ll lose that title this weekend if Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) wins as expected.

Way back in second place was Vivien Leigh, who earned 15 percent of the vote. “Vivien Leigh is the only one where both victories was my top choice in the years they won,” user Jay DeFelice wrote of her “Gone with the Wind” (1939) and “A Streetcar Named Desire” (1951) wins.

She narrowly edged out four-time champ Katharine Hepburn (14 percent), who won for “Morning Glory” (1932/33), “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” (1967), “The Lion in Winter” (1968) and “On Golden Pond” (1981).

“You can’t win without a great script! I can watch ‘Lion in winter’ 10 times a day and I will miss something or other,” user Raquel said.

1. Meryl Streep: 36 percent
2. Vivien Leigh: 15 percent
3. Katharine Hepburn: 14 percent
