The Academy Awards take place next Sunday, so we have a full week to look back at Meryl’s past Oscar appearances. There’ll also be an addition to Simply Streep that is long overdue, an in-depth special on Meryl’s Oscar history, filled with background information, pictures and everything necessary to know. But for now, screencaptures from previous broadcasts that haven’t been added to the gallery yet are up, including her very first appearance as a nominee for “The Deer Hunter” in 1979 to her 2006 appearance, honoring her “A Prairie Home Companion” director Robert Altman. Prepare for plenty more Oscar updates these next days.

|Fresh off the plane from a press tour in Paris to promote “August: Osage County”, Meryl Streep made a brief stop at Yale yesterday, and while on campus, gave a talk to the School of Drama community at the Yale Repertory Theatre. In her almost two-hour talk, Streep discussed topics such as how has she evolved as an actress over the years, how she chooses her roles, how technology has changed movie-making, and how she has found balance in her career and her home life. Two pictures have been added to the gallery.|
|Many thanks to Beatrice for bringing this to my attention: During her visit in France to promote “August: Osage County”, Meryl Streep attended the French television show 20h Week-End to talk about the film and the Oscars. It’s a pretty bumpy interview, maybe because of its editing and the translation – and I still don’t understand the lenghty Maria Callas clip. But see for yourself. The full interview can be watched in the video archive. Captures have been added to the image library.|
According to ScreenDaily, Meryl Streep is set to play iconic political activist Emmeline Pankhurst in Ruby Films drama “Suffragette”, which begins shooting in the UK on Monday (Feb 24). The Oscar-winning actress is in final negotiations to join the project, which will reunite the star with The Iron Lady writer Abi Morgan and financier Pathe. ScreenDaily understands that Streep will have a small but important role in the film, which will see her character give a “tour de force” speech on women’s rights during a political rally. Additional high profile casting has rounded on the project in recent weeks and will be announced in the coming days. Pathe, Film4 and the BFI are among backers on the drama, in which Carey Mulligan stars as Maude, a “foot soldier of the early feminist movement” who becomes radicalized and turns to violence as a route to change. Sarah Gavron (Brick Lane) directs “Suffragette”, producers are Ruby’s Faye Ward and Alison Owen. Executive producers are Pathe’s Cameron McCracken and Film4’s Tessa Ross and Katherine Butler, while Chris Collins is lead exec for the BFI Film Fund.

Yesterday, Meryl Streep and John Wells have attended the Paris premiere for “August: Osage County”. Meryl talked to Associated Press about the film and her recent Oscar nomination. “”I saw the play seven years ago. I remember it hit all of us like a freight train … I was entranced, it made me laugh and it shocked me”. Streep said actors were supposed to relish playing difficult characters but that the “reality is that where it begins, where it emanates from is a very unpleasant place.”
“She has cancer in her mouth. She chooses to smoke constantly in the face of that, she has chemotherapy … she’s a drug addict … it’s all a toxic mix, a nasty place to live.” But she added that it was also liberating “to play a person who says exactly what she thinks, never with a cover, never, never being nice, no thought of diplomacy. So that’s a wonderful free feeling”. Streep said she was thrilled at the Oscar nomination and that people were “still willing to look at my work and to look at it fresh”. “That is the most unbelievable thing, that they are not tired of me yet or of my work so I’m very happy about that. Very gratified,” she said.”
Meryl Streep has attended the official Academy Awards Luncheon in Beverly Hills, yesterday. Pictures from the event (which turned more into a red carpet than the familiar oscar statue posing) have been added to the gallery with more information to come. Many thanks to Lindsey for contributing some of them.
