On Friday, Meryl Streep joined Steve Martin, Martin Short, Selena Gomez, showrunner John Hoffman and songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul for a For Your Consideration event on the Paramount lot, with a conversation moderated by co-star Jane Lynch. The group is currently shooting season four of the series, which is largely set in Los Angeles, on the lot. Streep told the crowd how she called Martin to ask to appear on the show, after having had a “really fun” time working with him on 2009’s It’s Complicated. “I’m sorry, can you believe that Meryl Streep asked to be on this show? I could die,” Gomez exclaimed, as Streep responded, “Doesn’t everybody want to be on this show? They do, because next season, they all are,” referencing the fact that several new stars, including Eugene Levy, Molly Shannon and Eva Longoria, will be joining the cast. “They have to erect barriers to keep these actors out,” she continued. “I was a huge fan of the show, but I also just wanted to have some fun because the world is pretty shitty right now.” She added of the Broadway music-set third season, “I really thought they should have had Selena sing.” A lenghty article on the panel, alongside some brief video clips can be found over at The Hollywood Reporter. Pictures have been added to the photo gallery, alongside some new ones from the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Eugene Levy, Molly Shannon and Eva Longoria are the newest castmember to join “Only Murders in the Building” season four. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Levy will have a recurring role in the series’ upcoming season, marking his first regular television role since Schitt’s Creek ended. While details of Levy’s character are being kept under wraps, he will become integral to the twists and turns of this season’s investigation into Sazz Pataki’s death (Jane Lynch). Shannon is set to portray a high-powered Los Angeles businesswoman who finds herself drawn into the world of Sazz’s murder investigation, while Longoria will play a character who becomes integral to the season’s plot details. The new castmembers join the show’s original characters of Selena Gomez‘s Mabel, Martin Short‘s Oliver and Steve Martin‘s Charles, as well as Meryl Streep’s Loretta Durkin, who became a major character in Only Murders in the Building season three and will reprise her role for season four. The third installment of the Emmy-winning series ended with Sazz being shot in Charles’ apartment after spending her time over the course of the 10 episodes trying to talk to him about something that’s been weighing on her. As she dies, she begins to write something to her longtime friend in her blood. “It feels very in her character to send a message,” co-showrunner John Hoffman previously told The Hollywood Reporter of the final moments of season three. “She’s been trying to do it to Charles throughout the season. She’s hinting to him in episode five that she’s picking up some ham radio chatter, certainly, right when she arrives in the finale, she’s saying, ‘Can I grab you for a few minutes? It’s a little sensitive.’ So, there’s something on her mind and something she may know but to be found out.”
“The Devil Wears Prada” co-stars Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, and Emily Blunt joined together 18 years (!) after the 2006 film to present the award for Male Actor in a Comedy at the 2024 SAG Awards. Streep took the stage in a Prada dress to present the first award of the night, but comically stumbled when she reached the microphone. “Two things,” Streep said. “I forgot my glasses, clearly. And the envelope.” Those problems were quickly rectified when her former onscreen assistants Blunt and Hathaway joined her on stage. Blunt brought the envelope, while Hathaway brought Streep’s glasses. Fans of the movie might have noticed that Hathaway wore a cerulean blue dress, perhaps a reference Streep’s iconic speech in the movie where she informs Andy Sachs that she only wears blue because the fashion industry told her too. Jeremy Allen White won the category for “The Bear”, which also took home the prize for Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series over Streep and colleagues for “Only Murders in the Building”. Pictures from the ceremony have been added to the photo gallery.
Gird your loins, “The Devil Wears Prada” fans, as the iconic trio of the beloved chick flick is set to have a mini-reunion at the Screen Actors Guild Awards this weekend. Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, and Emily Blunt will grace the stage as presenters of the 30th Screen Actors Guild Awards taking place on Saturday at the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall in Los Angeles, California. The trio’s return comes 18 years since the David Frankel-directed film premiered in 2006. The film earned Streep a SAG Award nomination for Best Female Actor in a Leading Role, as well as as an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Costume Design. It also manifested Meryl Streep, for the first time in her career, as a box office powerhouse, followed by “Mamma Mia”, “It’s Complicated” and “Julie & Julia”. The 2024 Screen Actors Guild AwardsAwards will stream live on Netflix on Saturday, Feb. 24.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Meryl Streep is returning to The Arconia, having closed a deal to return for the fourth season of Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building. Streep will again recur and reprise her role as Loretta Durkin, the love interest to Short’s Oliver Putnam. Season three ended (spoiler alert) with Loretta getting an offer to work in Los Angeles. As previously announced, season four of the comedy starring Short, Steve Martin and Selena Gomez will begin with a trip to L.A. before the central action returns to its central location, The Arconia. In an interview with TV’s Top 5 coming Friday, 20th Television president Karey Burke – whose studio produces OMITB – confirmed Streep’s return. “Meryl is returning for next season because she had a tremendous time,” Burke says in The Hollywood Reporter’s podcast. Streep joins Molly Shannon with recurring roles in season four of OMITB, which is co-created by John Hoffman and Steve Martin. Dan Fogelman (This Is Us), Short, Gomez and Jess Rosenthal also exec produce. Many thanks to everybody for the heads-up.
Meryl Streep and former co-stars Kevin Kline and Peter MacNichol made a surprising appearance on Tuesday night at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art 40th anniversary screening of “Sophie’s Choice”. Surprising, because the film released in December of 1982, so the celebration is a bit behind but not one bit less deserving. After 40 years (or 42 by now), Sophie Zawistowska remains Meryl’s eminent screen role that keeps her high on the lists of best acting performances of all time. Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery.

On Sunday, Meryl Streep attended the 66th Annual Grammy Awards – both as a nominee for Best Audio Book, Narration, and Storytelling Recording for “Big Tree” (she didn’t win, the Grammy went to Michelle Obama) and a presenter on stage. The mother and son-in-law duo took to the stage to present Miley Cyrus with the coveted award for Record Of The Year. As host Trevor Noah remarked, “Mark Ronson, one of the greatest producers of all time,’ the comedian said. ‘Get this, his mother-in-law is going to be sitting right here. You know who she is? Meryl Streep, that’s right. Meryl Streep, one of the greatest Meryl Streeps of all time. She’s going to be in this chair. I can’t believe that Meryl Streep is here.” Pictures from the ceremony have been added to the photo gallery. Screencaptures and videos will be added later.

On Saturday, Meryl Streep was among the many celebrity guests (including friends and co-stars Cher and Rita Wilson) at the 66th Annual Grammy Awards’ pre-gala party. On Sunday’s show, Streep will be on stage presenting (and maybe also accepting Best Narrator for “Big Tree”, which would be her first Grammy win). While there is no official information what award Meryl will be presenting, chances are good she will be introducing Joni Mitchell’s first ever Grammy appearance.

Yesterday, Meryl Streep won a Critics Choice Award as Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for “Only Murders in the Building”. Unfortunately, there’s not much more to say or show, since she didn’t attend the ceremony. Furthermore, the category was presented rather as a blink-and-you-miss-it side dish combined with Best Supporting Actor. She was nominated alongside Paulina Alexis (Reservation Dogs), Alex Borstein (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Janelle James (Abbott Elementary), Sheryl Lee Ralph (Abbott Elementary) and Jessica Williams (Shrinking). This is Meryl Streep’s fourth Critics Choice Award – she received Best Actress honors in 2009 and 2010 for “Doubt” and “Julie & Julia”, respectively, and a Best Actress in a Comedy award in 2016 for “Florence Foster Jenkins”.
