On Thurday, Meryl Streep became Indiana University’s newest alumna when she accepted an honorary doctoral degree from the Bloomington school Wednesday afternoon in front of an enthusiastic sellout crowd of 3,200 at IU Auditorium in Bloomington. The brief ceremony was all pomp and circumstance—Streep donned a velvet-trimmed IU cap and gown as a procession of four trumpeters welcomed her onstage, and she received a standing ovation when IU Cinema director Jon Vickers presented her with a red leather-bound Doctor of Humane Letters diploma. Streep accepted the award for her work as a role model and humanitarian in the arenas of women’s rights and social justice. IU provost Lauren Robel spoke to the selection, saying Streep was an “inspiring choice,” nominated for her “generous spirit and utmost sincere concern for public good.” There have been quite some appearances from this day – besides the Honorary Degree, Meryl has attended a panel at IU Cinema as well as a Master Class at Wells-Metz Theatre. All pictures can be found in the image library with more to come.

Here’s the final update on last Sunday’s Academy Awards with lots of additional pictures from the show being added. Many thanks to Lindsey for her contribution and to Joan for the screencaptures. It looks like Meryl didn’t do any interviews at the red carpet, at least I couldn’t find any (if you found some, let me know). But there’s enough to look at anyway. A video clip, featuring all essential Meryl have been added, including her “dance segement” with Pharrell Williams, the epic selfie that broke Twitter, Ellen’s pizza delivery, and, of course, the Best Actress segment. You can watch the video by clicking above. And to revive all pictures from the show, have a look at the full list below. Enjoy.

Lots of additional pictures from yesterday’s Academy Awards have been added to the image library. This has been a fun ceremony, giving us Meryl dancing with Pharrell Williams, breaking Twitter records and eating pizza while Brad Pitt plays waiter – not bad for an Oscar broadcast. Check out the pictures from the red carpet and the show, with clips coming next.



The red carpet for the 86th Annual Academy Awards are in full swing and the first bunch of pictures have been added to the image library. There will be a live coverage of the ceremony on Simply Streep, so refresh the page and check the gallery for additions throughout the evening.


The Academy Awards take place next Sunday, so we have a full week to look back at Meryl’s past Oscar appearances. There’ll also be an addition to Simply Streep that is long overdue, an in-depth special on Meryl’s Oscar history, filled with background information, pictures and everything necessary to know. But for now, screencaptures from previous broadcasts that haven’t been added to the gallery yet are up, including her very first appearance as a nominee for “The Deer Hunter” in 1979 to her 2006 appearance, honoring her “A Prairie Home Companion” director Robert Altman. Prepare for plenty more Oscar updates these next days.

Meryl Streep has attended the official Academy Awards Luncheon in Beverly Hills, yesterday. Pictures from the event (which turned more into a red carpet than the familiar oscar statue posing) have been added to the gallery with more information to come. Many thanks to Lindsey for contributing some of them.

Three new interviews from the red carpets of the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Critics Choice Awards have been added to the video archive.

The SAGs have been handed out, “August: Osage County” hasn’t been among the recipients once again. I think it’s safe to say this is Cate Blanchett’s year, which is just deserving. But it looks like Meryl and Emma Thompson had lots of fun on the red carpet. Over 200 additional pictures from the red carpet and the show have been added to the gallery. Many thanks to Lindsey for helping out. Also, screencaptures from the show have been added as well and the video is in the video archive. Enjoy the new additions.
