TRUTH !!
Hepburn is the only actress to have won the Best Actress award four times.
She's the most honored actress of all-time, with a total of twelve nominations and four wins - all in the Best Actress category - stretching over a period of 49 years (from Hepburn's Best Actress win for Morning Glory (1932/33) to her Best Actress win for On Golden Pond (1981)) - a record in itself for the greatest span between Oscar wins.
Meryl Streep surpassed Hepburn's record of 12 acting nominations in 2002, with 13 career nominations (and then in 2006 with 14 career nominations, and in 2008 with 15 career nominations) - and became the most-nominated performer ever - over a period of only 24 years (from her Best Supporting Actress nomination for The Deer Hunter (1978) to her Best Supporting Actress nomination for Adaptation (2002)). Meryl Streep is the only performer to have 15 Oscar nominations, 12 as Best Actress and three as Best Supporting Actress, with one win in each category
