According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Human Rights Campaign, the country’s largest LGBT civil rights organization is honoring Meryl Streep at its 2017 HRC Great New York Gala, to be held Feb. 11 at New York’s Waldorf Astoria. As THR continues, the achievement is overdue. The 19-time Oscar-nominated actress — arguably as iconic a gay screen icon as Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn and Judy Garland before her — has never before been given a major award for her contributions to LGBT culture and advancement. Streep’s resume features some of the most essential films in the gay cinematic canon, from bleak historical dramas (Sophie’s Choice, Silkwood) to rousing musicals (Mamma Mia!, Into the Woods) to darkly campy delights (the immensely quotable Death Becomes Her and The Devil Wears Prada). Off-screen, Streep has taken up the advancement of gay rights as a personal cause. She has described her multiple roles in Mike Nichols’ adaptation of the groundbreaking Tony Kushner play Angels in America (she played everything from accused spy Ethel Rosenberg to a male rabbi in the 2003 HBO miniseries) as among the most important work of her career for the way it humanized the AIDS crisis. Accepting her Golden Globe for the project in 2004, she spoke out in favor of same-sex marriage, then a mounting hot-button issue that led President George W. Bush, in his reelection campaign, to call for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would ban it from ever being legalized. Closing her speech, Streep said that “too many people [wanting] to commit their lives to each other till death do us part” is far from the country’s biggest problem, drawing applause from attendees like Jack Nicholson and Tom Cruise. “Meryl Streep embodies the very nature of what it means to be an ally to our community,” says HRC President Chad Griffin, who will present Streep with the Ally for Equality Award, which recognizes “outstanding efforts of those who use their voice and publicly stand up for the LGBTQ community.” Many thanks to Frank for the heads-up.

According to a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter with Dick Van Dyke, both he and Angela Lansbury will be part of Disney’s upcoming “Mary Poppins” sequel, which already helms Emily Blunt, Colin Firth, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Meryl Streep. The latter’s involvement hasn’t been officially announced, so once can assume if Dick Van Dyke tells it, it’s true. His mention of the project is short but poingnant, as you can see above. Also, here’s Disney’s official synopsis for the December 25, 2018 release: In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

This one supposedly takes place 20 years later and the kids are all grown up,” he says. “It’s a great cast — Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury and that guy [Lin-Manuel Miranda] from Hamilton.

Yesterday, Meryl Streep was named Best Actress in a Comedy for “Florence Foster Jenkins” at the 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards, “beating out” Kate Beckinsale, Sally Field, Kate McKinnon and Hailee Steinfeld. Her fellow “Florence Foster Jenkins” nominees didn’t fare as good – costume designer Consolata Boyle and supporting actor nominee Hugh Grant remained nominees.

Awards season is starting these days with the first groups of critics and award juries announcing their nominations and winners. Among the first are the Satellite Awards (who seem to nominate anyone who’s been mentioned a favorite in the awards communities) and the Critics Choice Awards (ditto). Meryl Streep has received nomination from both organizations for “Florence Foster Jenkins”. The Satellites have nominated Meryl as Actress in a Motion Picture and Hugh Grant as Best Supporting Actor. The Critics Choice Awards, which split their acting categories into Best Actress, Best Actress in an Action Movie and Best Actress in a Comedy has nominated Meryl in the latter category, with additional nominations for Hugh Grant (Best Actor in a Comedy) and Consolata Boyle (Best Costume Design). It’ll probably take until December 12’s Golden Globe nominations and the Screen Actors Guild nominations two days later until we find out if Meryl will be a bankable player in the Best Actress field this year. If not, we still have the Globes’ Lifetime Achievement Award to look forward to.
