As you can see, Simply Streep has a new look. It’s been a couple of years since I worked on a new look, because the site has become quite familiar with how it looked, so my sole goal was to make it even easier to browse and cleaner looking, with all content in sight. There’s also a new comment system for the news, which you can access through your own social media. All pages are still where they’ve been, and most of the content pages, such as the filmography pages, will receive a special treatment in the coming weeks. The new layout comes just in time for the early October release of “Suffragette”, which is going to be something. I hope you like the new look, feel free to browse around and check back soon for more updates.

I’d like to wish all visitors a Merry Christmas, a great and peaceful time with your beloved ones and a Happy New Year. Also, I’d like to thank you for visiting and contributing throughout the year. It’s very appreciated. Thank you. To celebrate the last days of the year and Simply Streep’s last update of 2014, I have a Christmas surprise for all visitors. Five of Meryl’s classic performances – The Deer Hunter, The French Lieutenant’s Woman, Sophie’s Choice, Out of Africa and Ironweed – have been re-capped from Blu-Ray, so they’re in brilliant quality and a vast improvement to the earlier DVD captures. Especially “Ironweed” has been released in much better quality. And as always, a Year in Review has been written with all the key moments of 2014 reviewed. So, enjoy the new captures, enjoy your Holidays (in case you live in the US, don’t forget to see “Into the Woods”) and see you all in 2015. Frederik.

The magazines archive has been re-organized these past days to make it easier to access and browse. Over the years, hundreds of magazines have been obtained – some have been transcripted, other can be found in the image library. Now, both collections have been merged to give a comprehensive list of articles. Also, since many visitors come from around the world and many articles have been posted in foreign languages, there’s a new compilation of international magazines. Simply click the country of your destiny to find all articles available in your language. You will be surprised how much has been collected. My most sincere thanks to all the visitors who have contributed their collections and rare finds, most especially Alvaro, who has sent in most of the scans you’re able to read on Simply Streep. If you have collected articles that are not featured yet, why not drop me a line and help make this list even more comprehensible.

Additionally to the new magazines archive, some 100 new scans have been added to the image library. Some are re-added, because I’m sure they had been posted on here before. Simply browse the last updated albums for a complete list. Enjoy reading.

A new book on Meryl has been released this January, and it deserves a special mention here. “Meryl Streep: Anatomy of an Actor” is written by Karina Longworth, a film critic and journalist based in Los Angeles. Instead of fast forwarding through Meryl’s life, Miss Longworth has picked 10 significant Streep performances and explores each role within its film and its place in Meryl’s career at that time. Highlighted are Linda from “The Deer Hunter”, Joanna Kramer, Sophie, Karen Silkwood, Karen Blixen, Madeline Ashton, Francesca Johnson, Miranda Priestly, Julia Child and Margaret Thatcher. Each chapter is filled with detailed information on the creation of the character as well as many quotes from previous interviews.

What’s remarkable about this book is that, even if you have seen the films a dozen times, you will find new aspects in each performance through Miss Longworth’s analytics. The book also includes bonus pages on Meryl’s work on “Holocaust”, her collaboration with Mike Nichols, and more insightful information on how specific roles and choices have influenced the legacy of her career as we know it today. On top of that, it’s filled with some amazing pictures from behind the scenes. “Meryl Streep: Anatomy of an Actor” is available now and can be ordered through Amazon or directly at Phaidon.

Welcome to 2014 – and to Simply Streep’s new layout. The previous look has been online since 2011 and has become so familiar with the site that I didn’t want to change it much. So here’s a rather light, improved version of Simply Streep, just in time for January’s busy awards schedule (starting this Saturday with the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s honor for Meryl). I hope you all enjoy the new look. Something new has been added as well – a search function which browsing surfing this site a lot easier. It can be found on the sidebar, alongside an updated calendar for the coming weeks. Additionally to the new layout, four new production stills from “August: Osage County” have been added as well.

2013 comes to an end (as fast as it has started), so annually a Year in Review has been compiled with all the essential highlights of the year. If you think it has been a quiet year, you may be surprised by the workload it has brought to Meryl. Click the image below to launch it. Additionally, over 80 additional pictures from the “August: Osage County” Los Angeles premiere have been added with many thanks to my friend Lindsey.

This is the last update of 2013, so I’m wishing a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all the visitors of Simply Streep. Spend a good time with your family and beloved ones and see you all again in 2013. As a last word, in case you have missed the Christmas Calendar hosted on Tumblr, be sure to revive all the specials posted over this month.

It’s December 1st (I wonder where the year has gone, wasn’t it just December?), and to celebrate this year and the days until Christmas, there will be a Simply Streep Christmas Calendar on Tumblr. All you have to do is check our Tumblr page every day for a Christmas addition to the site – there are some rare videos and new pictures to be added – so there’ll be lots of goodies until Christmas Day. You can also follow Simply Streep on Tumblr and spread the word. To start with a bang, the first entry is a video of Meryl’s appearance at the 1981 Tony Awards. Screencaptures have been added to the image library as well. It has been her first award presentation in her career and I’ve been looking for this forever. So I’m happy to finally share it on Simply Streep.

While Simply Streep isn’t using Facebook or any of the countless social media features, I do have a Twitter account for the site which I find very handy. A predecessor for the good old newsletter (a feature on fansites that didn’t survive the time of social media), you get an instant notification on last updates and news. From today, a new feature will be launched for Twitter followers – the Gallery of the Week and the Video of the Week. Once a week, usually on Sundays, a spotlight will be posted for a gallery album – may it be a public appearance, a set of film stills or magazine scans. Since the image library has been growing over the years with over 100.000 pictures, I’m sure there are parts of the gallery that some visitors have never seen. It also gives me the chance to add some new pictures or update them in better quality. Ditto for the video archive, with a link being posted sometime during the week. So in case you’re not following Simply Streep on Twitter, make sure to join. The first Gallery of the Week has been chosen already.

It’s been some time since I have added flipbooks to Simply Streep, so here are two new ones to make up for the time. Thanks to Joan for bringing both ideas to my attention, the first became a favorite while creating it: Have a look at Meryl’s Connections with numerous cast members of the Long running “Law & Order”, I’m sure there’ll be some surprises for you. Just like the second new flipbook, about Meryl’s co-stars who once made it big on television. So, have fun flipping and guessing. If you have another good idea for a flipbook, let me know.

2012 is in its last week, so let’s revisit the hightlights of Meryl’s incredible year. Enjoy reading and reminding what happened in these last twelve months and share your personal hightlights. I wish you all a Merry Christmas, see you in 2013. 2012 has been the busiest year for Meryl Streep in a long time. There were two films to promote, a third to be filmed and a new shelf to be bought for all the accolades she won for “The Iron Lady”.

Although “The Iron Lady” had a limited release in December 2011 to qualify for awards season, the film widely released in January. In order to promote the film, Meryl participated in an international press campaign, starting with the European premiere in London on January 4 and the Paris premiere three days later. The film’s release was met with support by the American Vogue, who made Meryl their “cover girl” for the January 2012 issue. On January 10, Meryl was on hand at theNew York Film Critics Circle Awards, accepting a trophy as Best Actress. She also taped various interviews for the US release, attending both Ellen DeGeneres‘  show as well as Jimmy Kimmel Live.  For the Golden Globe Awards, much was speculated if  either Meryl or Viola Davis would be named winner in the Best Actress Drama category. Both actresses have has received  numerous accolades for their performances in “The Iron Lady” and “The Help” before, and the Golden Globe win in this category was expected to be a direction towards the Academy Awards. At the Golden Globes on January 16, it was Meryl’s name to be called, accepting her career’s eighth Golden Globe win. After mentioning performances by leading ladies that weren’t nominated that year, Meryl thanked “everybody in England that let me come and trample all over their history.”
