It has taken quite some time, but finally here are all video clips from the Berlin International Film Festival.

Four new videos have been added. Most importantly, Meryl has been a guest on yesterday’s “Huckabee” on FOX, promoting “The Iron Lady”. It’s a lenghty interview, so check it out. The full version has been snagged by dannix03, thanks :-) Then there are two entertainment reports on the AACTA Awards last week as well as a French interview, which aired on TF1News, last week as well.

Also, many additions have been made to the appearances galleries of 2012, including more pictures from the Golden Globe and SAG Awards as well as the most recent Theater Hall of Fame Induction. Most of the HQs have been sent in by my friend Roberta – thanks for them!

In case you’ve missed tonight’s telecast – or you’d just like to watch her win over and over again – the full speech has been added to the video archive.
“I gotta thank everybody in England that let me come and trample all over their history. Especially, I’d like to thank Phyllida Lloyd, Abi Morgan, who wrote it, Damien Jones, who stayed with us for ten years. All the cast and crew in England. We’ve made this for twenty-five cents in five minutes and I’m so proud of the film and I’m so, so, so grateful.”

Here’s the complete transcript of her speech: “Oh my God. Oh my God. Well, when Ricky Gervais’ deal fell through and they came to me to play Margaret Thatcher… (laughter). I can’t joke. This is such a thrill, but really, really embarrassing in a year that saw so many extraordinary performances by women in leading roles – by my friends, by people I don’t know. By people that I am so inspired by… Oh, shiii-it (points to her table), I’ve forgot my glasses. Oh, I’m gonna have to remember my speech (laughter). Okay, I’m gonna have to remember, but Glenn, Viola – oh my God I’m gonna leave people off – Michelle, Rooney, Gilda, yeah and how about Adepero Oduye, how about “Pariah” (applause)? How about Michelle, how about Mia Wasikowska in “Jane Eyre”? (applause). Fantastic! Tilda. Oh geez. Everybody I know I’m gonna leave you out. Anyone of these performances in any given year would have been a stand-out and an award winning peformance. But the fact that they all this year is really, really good news for all of us, because sometimes it seems that serious, challenging, weird movies are like exotic birds, near extinct birds, and every year a new flock flies in and somebody picks them up and gives them money and we get to see them. So, I just wanna thank my agent Kevin Huvane and God – Harvey Weinstein (laughter) – the punisher. Old testament, I guess? (laughter) Okay, I gotta thank everybody in England that let me come and trample all over their history. Especially, I’d like to thank Phyllida Lloyd (music starts to fade in) – oh, no! Abi Morgan, who wrote it, Damien Jones, who stayed with us for ten years. Oh, come on. All the cast and crew in England. We’ve made this for twenty-five cents in five minutes and I’m so proud of the film and I’m so, so, so grateful. And I love you, Viola. You’re my girl.

Lastly, lots of additional pictures from the Golden Globe Awards have been added to the image library. You can access all galleries below. Edit: Screencaptures from the ceremony have been added as well.

Yesterday’s second talkshow appearance, on Jimmy Kimmel Live, has been added to the archives as well. This 15 minutes interview is very funny as went beyond the usual questions – Meryl spoke about her experience in Beijing a couple of months ago at the US China Forum on the Arts and Culture and that she heard a ghost in her home in the early 1990s. Very worthwile interview, the full segment can be found in the video archive, HD captures are in the image library. Enjoy!

Coverage for this year’s Critics Choice Movie Awards will be, unfortunately, short. The Best Actress award went to Viola Davis for “The Help” – and there are only a couple of pictures of Meryl from inside the ceremony, no red carpet as always ;-) Nevertheless, I’ve added the Best Actress segment to the video archive as well as pictures and captures to the image library.
