Yesterday, Meryl has attended the 21th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards as a nominee for “Into the Woods”. As predicted, the Best Supporting Actress trophy went to Patricia Arquette. Pictures from the arrivals and the show have been added to the image library. My biggest thanks to Lindsey for contributing most of these. Thanks.
Yesterday, Meryl Streep was a presenter at the Casting Society of America’s 30th annual Artios Awards, honoring achievement by casting directors, a decidedly less widely appreciated bunch than actors and directors. A special award, for contributions to the New York entertainment industry, went to Rob Marshall. First his sister, the theater director and choreographer Kathleen went onstage to talk a bit about her brother, then Christine Baranski, who played the wicked stepmother in Mr. Marshall’s latest film, “Into the Woods,” took over. “His actors feel like happy children playing together,” she said, and added later, “When some of the actors heard I had been cast as a presenter, some of them suddenly became available not just to put themselves on tape, but to show up,” Ms. Baranski said before launching into a surprise number. She was quickly joined by Tracey Ullman and Meryl Streep to perform a medley of songs – riffs on numbers from “Into the Woods,” with lyrics like these, to the tune of “Stay With Me:” Work with Rob and John and you will see; Actors who will slave and work for free.” Pictures from the ceremony have been added to the image library with many thanks to Claudia for her help with HQs.
Many thanks to Claudia for sending in scans from the recent Entertainment Weekly (January 30, 2015), covering this year’s Academy Awards, and Interview (February 2015) magazine with a great picture of Meryl and Emily Blunt.
A video with all memorable bits, including the Best Supporting Actress segment and the Best Picture presentation, has been added to the video archive. Screencaptures can be found in the image library. Also, a great batch of new pictures have been added as well, featuring Meryl with Amy Adams and Helen Mirren, with many thanks to Lindsey and Claudia.
Unfortunately, there’s not much material to add from yesterday’s Golden Globe Awards. Meryl skipped the red carpet, lost the Best Supporting Actress award to Patricia Arquette and, besides some audience action with Margaret Cho, took the stage briefly at the end to present the Best Picture award to “Boyhood”. Pictures have been added to the image library with many thanks to Claudia. Additionally, pictures from Disney’s Pre-Golden Globe Party and more from the AFI Awards and the Graham Norton taping have been posted as well, with many thanks to Lindsey.

Meryl Streep, Mark Ruffalo and James McAvoy have attended “The Graham Norton Show” in a taped appearance that aired yesterday night in the United Kingdom. Fresh off the London premiere for “Into the Woods”, Meryl talked about the film, some often-told stories (her “King Kong” audition) and shared a funny story on her first Golden Globe appearance in 1980. This was a surprise to hear as I was certain she hasn’t attended the ceremony until 1989 (hence the lack of pictures from any previous appearances), but maybe her story gives a good explanation why she didn’t want to have her picture taken back in 1980. The full appearance has been added to the video archive. It’s split in two parts due to its length, the second part can be watched here. Additionally, screencaptures from the show have been added as well.
The stars have arrived for the London premiere of “Into the Woods”. The first pictures have been added to the image library. Both the premiere and photocall albums will be further updated with additions over the evening, so make sure to refresh those gallery pages. Edit: Lots of additional pictures have been added.
