Tonight at the Golden Globes, Meryl Streep gave a speech that should be winning her just another award for the brilliant mind she is. Streep spoke of the importance of empathy in today’s world and referenced the moment that Trump mocked New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski during a rally in 2015 for his disability. “This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in thee public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing,” Streep said. “Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.” She then highlighted the importance of the press: “We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage. That’s why our Founders enshrined the press and its freedoms in our Constitution.” Her full speech and tribute video can be found in the video archive, pictures are constantly being added to the photo gallery. After the cut, you can also find a transcript of her speech.

Happy New Year everybody! Today, Meryl Streep has joined colleague and friend Viola Davis to celebrate Davis’ star unveiling at the Hollywood Walk of Fame. A first batch of pictures have been added to the photo gallery with more to come. Edit: Over 200 additional pictures have been added, as well as a video of the whole ceremony below. At the ceremony, Streep said, “Viola Davis is possessed. She’s possessed of a blazing, incandescent talent. She is, arguably, the most immediate, responsive artist I have ever worked with.” And an emotional Davis, who won a Tony for her Broadway performance in Fences and is now frontrunning a Best Supporting Actress win at the Academy Awards, said, “I cannot believe my life right now.” Meryl’s introduction starts around 7:50 minutes.
A new selection of international magazine scans have been added to the photo gallery, coming from Spain, the United States, Australia and Germany. They’re all covering the international releases of “Florence Foster Jenkins”, and the Australian Women’s Weekly has recycled More Magazine’s cover story with Michelle Obama and Meryl, adding a wonderful outtake in the article. As always, many thanks to Alvaro for sending them in. Enjoy.

On Thursday, Meryl Streep has attended the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s A Magical Evening Gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. Meryl’s sighting comes a day after news that her turn on the upcoming television miniseries “The Nix” will bring her a whopping $825,000 per episode, according toThe Hollywood Reporter. Makes one wonder how many episodes there will be. Streep’s handsome salary places her among a growing list of top-notch performers who have been lured to the small screen thanks to the popularity of original content streamed by the likes of Netflix and Amazon.
Hundreds of additional pictures from the press conference and opening ceremony of the 2016 Tokyo International Film Festival have been added to the photo gallery. Videos will follow soon, this weekend at least. Many thanks to everybody, especially Yuri, for helping out with pictures and links. Very appreciated!
Look who’s made a surprise visit to today’s Tokyo International Film Festival – surprising at least for me since I didn’t know about. Meryl is in Tokyo for the city’s film festival and presentation of “Florence Foster Jenkins”. Speaking on the film, Streep said: ““I did try to learn how to sing these arias properly, so I got a very, very good, true opera coach and he taught me the arias correctly. And then in the last two weeks of a two-month preparation… we just, what’s the nice word, screwed around with them. Somehow I pulled it off.” American socialite Foster Jenkins craved fame as a diva but instead gained notoriety for her terrible singing voice. The 29th edition of the Tokyo International Film Festival will screen 16 films in competition chosen from some 1,500 works sent in from 96 countries and regions.
Hundreds of additional pictures from the 11th Rome Film Festival have been added. After yesterday’s photocal, press conference and conversation panel, the premiere for “Florence Foster Jenkins” was held. After the premiere, Meryl Streep was honored at the US Embassy in Rome. There have also been press junkets over the day to promote the Italian release of the film. Videos from the interviews and conversation panels will follow soon. For now, enjoy the additional pictures.
First Lady Michelle Obama’s initiative to elevate global educational opportunities for girls and women is getting a major shot of star power from Meryl Streep, who has attended yesterday’s White House screening of the CNN documentary. Streep takes on the role of correspondent in “We Will Rise: Michelle Obama’s Mission to Educate Girls Around the World,” a documentary film that makes its U.S. premiere Wednesday night on CNN. (It will be available Thursday on demand through cable and satellite systems and online via CNNgo.) The film chronicles Streep’s recent travels to Marrakesh, Morocco where she talked with young women about overcoming the cultural, economic, safety and health barriers that can keep them from pursuing an education. (According to the U.S. Agency for International Development, 62 million girls around the world are not in school.) “We Will Rise,” produced by CNN Films and the Documentary Group, also features the network’s correspondent Isha Sesay (a native of Sierra Leone), actress Freida Pinto and Obama, who listened to similar stories on a visit to Liberia. Pictures from the screening have been added to the photo gallery. The Los Angeles Times has an interview with Meryl Streep on her experience in Morrocco and the documentary.
With many thanks to my friend Alvaro, additional magazine scans from the American promotion for “Florence Foster Jenkins” have been added to the photo gallery. Besides two scans from Brasil, coverage includes the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, and, of course, that wonderful Wall Street Journal Magazine pictorial.

It has been some time since I last added production stills, basically because I thought that I’ve found all available movie stills already :-) Fortunately I was wrong, as many additional stills from films, television and theater performances have been added, ranging from Kramer vs. Kramer to Florence Foster Jenkins. Among the rare finds is a promotional still of Meryl for 1980’s CBS special Omnibus and a rehearsal picture from 2005’s Theater of the New Ear, with many thanks to Alvaro for finding both. To launch all last added pictures, simply click one of the previews above.
