The Academy Museum Gala returned for its third year on Sunday night, honoring Meryl Streep, Michael B. Jordan, Oprah Winfrey and Sofia Coppola among an A-list group of guests. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Los Angeles event — which was originally scheduled for Oct. 14 but was delayed until December following Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack on Israel — serves as the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures’ marquee annual fundraiser, raising vital funds to support museum exhibitions, education initiatives and public programming; it has also quickly become one of Hollywood’s starriest nights. The gala raised more than $10 million in support of the museum, and presented four awards to reflect the its mission to advance the understanding, celebration and preservation of film and to contextualize and challenge dominant narratives around cinema. Greta Gerwig presented Streep with the Academy Museum Gala Icon Award, celebrating her significant global cultural impact, and Chloe Zhao presented The Visionary Award to Coppola. Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery.

Meryl Streep has spent the week in Spain as a recipient of the 2023 Princesa de Asturias Awards, which will be handed out today. But Streep was in full demand these past few days with an array of conversation panels and surprise visits. She was joined by fellow actor (and two-time co-star) Antonio Banderas for a conversation panel about her career, and also attended a meeting with students at the La Fabrica de Armas cultural center in Oviedo. Yesterday, she paid a visit to the Superior School of Dramatic Arts in Gijon. Pictures from all appearances have been added to the photo gallery, with many thanks to Glenn for all the heads-up.

Meryl Streep made a surprise appearance at yesterday’s Albie Awards in New York City. The awards, run by The Clooney Foundation for Justice, exist “to shine a protective spotlight on courageous justice defenders who are at risk,” according to an official online statement. The Albies are named after anti-apartheid hero Justice Albie Sachs, who received a lifetime achievement award at the inaugural event. This year, Dr Denis Mukwege from the Republic of Congo received this prestigious award for his life-changing work as gynecologist, treating survivors of wartime sexual violence. Viola Davis presented Dr Mukwege with the award. “I thank you for radicalising love, for making these women feel whole, and thank you for not leaving them behind,” the actor said to the awardee. Meryl Streep also addressed the room. “Throughout history, there have been tyrants. And regardless of how long it takes, they always fall,” she said. Pictures from the event have been added to the photo gallery.

It’s been 15 years since the theatrical release of “Mamma Mia!” in 2008 – and Vogue has consulted everyone – literally everyone involved with the film except for Julie Walters – to reflect on its filming, its release and the chances for a third film to fulfill Judy Cramer’s dream of a “Mamma Mia” trilogy. The oral history is a long read with countless new information from behind the scenes and who was considered for which parts, so head over to Vogue to read the entire article. A couple of new production stills and on-set pictures from the article have been added to the photo gallery as well.
I’m up for anything. I’ll have to schedule a knee scoping before we film, but if there’s an idea that excites me, I’m totally there. I told Judy if she could figure out a way to reincarnate Donna, I’m into that. Or it could be like in one of those soap operas where Donna comes back and reveals it was really her twin sister that died. (Meryl Streep, Vogue, September 12, 2023)

As always, many thanks to M as well for providing the screencaptures. Enjoy.

On the latest episode, Meryl Streep teamed up on “Look for the Light,” written by Sara Bareilles in collaboration with “Dear Evan Hansen” powerhouses Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Bareilles told The New York Times last week that she relished the chance to “tailor” the song to Streep’s “strengths. There was so much tenderness in Meryl’s vulnerability. She let that speak through her singing.” Pasek and Paul agree. “Her performance in this number is equal parts emotional, tender, vulnerable and filled with her signature quiet strength,” they tell PEOPLE Magazine. “It’s incredibly unoriginal but nonetheless very true to say that when the opportunity to work with Meryl comes along, you just jump.” Her performance with Ashley Park can be found in the video archive. Screencaptures from the episode have been added to the photo gallery, with many thanks to M for the contribution. Enjoy your weekend.
