When it comes to the Golden Globes, Meryl Streep stands alone. While Barbra Streisand technically has the most Globe wins with 11, five of those were special awards, leaving her one short of Streep's record of six competitive wins. Streep's last win came in 2009, when she won for her portrayal of celebrity chef Julia Child in "Julie & Julia." That victory came exactly three decades after her first victory, for "Kramer vs. Kramer."
While Streep leads the pack, plenty of other performers have earned heaps of Globes glory. Three other competitors are tied with Barbra Streisand with six awards.
Alan Alda -- Alda's half dozen wins all come from his portrayal of Hawkeye Pierce in "M*A*S*H," a role he was nominated for in 11 consecutive years. Alda also has five other nominations, including a double for Best Actor and Best Screenplay for 1982's "The Four Seasons."
Angela Lansbury -- Lansbury's six wins span nearly a half century, starting with Best Supporting Actress for "The Picture of Dorian Gray" in 1946. Her most recent win came in 1992, her fourth for the role of Jessica Fletcher in "Murder, She Wrote."
Jack Nicholson -- Nicholson has been nominated seventeen times, collecting six wins over three categories (Best Actor -- Drama, Best Actor -- Comedy or Musical, and Best Supporting Actor). His first win came in 1975 for "Chinatown," and he's got at least one win in every decade through the 2000's, where he won for "About Schmidt."
Four actresses have won two awards on the same night.
Sigourney Weaver in 1989: "Gorillas in the Mist: The Story of Dian Fossey" and "Working Girl"
Joan Plowright in 1993: "Enchanted April" and "Stalin"
Helen Mirren in 2007: "The Queen" and "Elizabeth I"
Kate Winslet in 2009: "Revolutionary Road" and "The Reader"
