Meryl has been a steady visitor to Tina Brown’s Women in the World Summit ever since its inauguration and 2016 marks no difference. Today, she has taken the stage to talk about how far women have come in history and why they will no longer be marginalized. A first excerpt of her speech can be found on Youtube. Pictures have been added to the photo gallery with more information to come.


Last night, New York City’s Webster Hall hosted an all-star fundraiser for legendary keyboardist Bernie Worrell, who is battling cancer. The “All The Woo In The World” show featured over four hours of funk. Worrell himself was on hand as was famed actress Meryl Streep and director Jonathan Demme. Pictures from the benefit have been added to the photo gallery. Next week will bring us the British promotion for “Florence Foster Jenkins”, for which Meryl will be a guest on The Graham Norton Show (airing next Friday, April 15).

Meryl Streep and her Berlin jury have picked the winners of the 66th annual film fest’s Gold and Silver Bears. The most politically-charged Berlin Film Festival of recent years comes to a head tonight with the awards ceremony for the winners of the Gold and Silver Bears. Meryl Streep said of the Golden Bear-winning film “Fire at Sea” from Gianfranco Rosi: “This is a film that commands our attention and demands action. It is a documentary on the refugee crisis, looking at the island of Lampadusa In Italy where thousands of refugees have flooded into Europe.” The first batch of pictures from the closing ceremony have been added to the photo gallery. Edit: A video from the closing ceremony, including Meryl’s interview and the presentation of the Best Actress and Best Film awards has been added, alongside screencaptures from the show. Enjoy.



Lots of additional images from the Berlin Film Festival have been added to the photo gallery, including yesterday’s jury reception of the White Bear at the mayor’s office, the Berlinale Talents conversation as well as the photocall, press conference and opening ceremony.

The Berlin International Film Festival kicks off next Thursday, and Meryl Streep will headline this year’s Jury. It’s the first time she has taken over a jury job at a festival, but by far not the first time she has attended the Berlinale. It’ll be interesting to see if there are many public appearances (a masterclass has already been announced) or if Meryl will be hiding in the theaters to watch all films in competition. The good thing however, since I live in Germany, is that we can get all the coverage on what’s happening, so prepare yourself for a busy week. As a look back, the first Streep film to premiere at the Berlinale was “The Deer Hunter” in 1979, causing a stir after it was removed from the festival after withdrawal of several countries from the festival in protest of its inclusion. Both “Out of Africa” and “Marvin’s Room” screened in the 1980s and 1990s as well. Her first appearance came in 1999 with the premiere of “One True Thing” and an honorary Berlinale Kamera (an award for people that the Berlinale feels connected to through their artistry). In 2003, Meryl, Julianne Moore and Nicole Kidman won the Best Actress award for “The Hours”, although Meryl wasn’t present. She returned three years later with the cast of “A Prairie Home Companion” and again in 2012 for the premiere of “The Iron Lady” and for receiving the Honorary Golden Bear, with which the Berlinale pays tribute to important figures in the world of film. Have a look at the photo gallery below for all appearances and look forward to more additions this next week.
