I have agonized over this speech, mostly because I don’t usually give speeches, or when I do, it’s at my house, and nobody listens. I have thought long and hard about how to advise you, inspire you, thrill and excite you over multiple speakers that repeat each word-erd-erd in that sonic-onic-onic Doppler-oppler-oppler effect-ect-ect that makes you want to go to sleep-eep-eep. Meryl Streep-eep-eep put me to sleep-eep-eep.

Altough she lost to Catherine Zeta-Jones in the Best Supporting Actress category, Meryl Streep entered the stage at the British Academy Awards for giving perhaps the evening’s best moment – Streep read aloud Kaufman’s “faxed” acceptance speech, which was as funny as Adaptation and even funnier read by Streep.

A studio mistake left Meryl Streep competing against herself for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, possibly costing her one if not two nominations. A Sony spokesman said a studio employee incorrectly submitted Streep’s name in the lead-actress category for “Adaptation”. The studio considers it a supporting-actress role and has been pushing Streep in that category for other film awards. The mistake May have split Streep’s votes between “Adaptation” and her other contending role for “The Hours,” which Paramount also had submitted in the lead-actress category.
