Uh...Pedro Aldomovar's Julieta? What happened to that? Denzel didn't get best in a drama insane. And Jeez..Jackie was overwhelming. Natalie Portman blew the doors off that role. Where is her award? Go see Fences and Jackie. Wish Tommy Lee Jones directed something this year. His stuff has real grit and power. Missed seeing this award show. But I didn't miss the best films. And LA LA Land? Get a copy of Coppola's One From The Heart, with the superb score by Tom Waits. Every song is memorable. it's great. Terry Garr.

Streep rebukes Trump

Epic Barf.

She lives in a million dollar mansion with servants tending to her every need.

The rest of us have bills to pay dear.

The average Joe has had enough of these elites and their self-righteousness, and that's why Trump got elected.

...so to get even the elected someone even more elite!

...so to get even the elected someone even more elite!

Who's surrounding himself with his fellow elites who'll use the powers of their positions to ensure they remain elites and that their children will, too.

The Republicans pulled off one of the biggest scams in US election history.

Can't believe Streep made the point that "disrespect invites disrespect" ? Is that an open admission she is stooping to his level ?

“Do not expect cinema to put up walls and borders.” Hypocrites!! All these celebrities live in walled mansions in gated communities with security guards, while Hollywood studios use geo-blocking as virtual borders to prevent people outside America from viewing their content!!

"we will have nothing to watch but ..." Now I prefer to TV created in other countries. Generally the lighting is better and the plots less hysterical [ not in a funny way, however]. Can think of nothing made in US for TV that rivals the unique creativity of Midnight Dinner :Tokyo Stories.

If the only example she can think of to hate Trump is from the start of the campaign he is obviously doing something right.

Meryl Streep moves on, the Election was finished. It doesn’t matter whether you like him or do not like him but Donald Trump will be your President soon.

LizzJAN. 10, 2017 - 03:48AM JST If the only example she can think of to hate Trump is from the start of the campaign he is obviously doing something right.

Not the only example she could think of, the only example she talked about.

And it was an effective example because it neatly sums up Trump's personality: a thin-skinned bully who attacks people for who they are (not what they do) in order to get attention from a crowd of people he's trying to manipulate.

Personally I thought Streep's speech was imperfect, but on the whole it was pretty rousing. You have to have done something pretty screwed up to have another person devote their lifetime achievement award to a rallying cry against your tyranny.

We will see how it plays out over the long term. The more information that comes to light on Clinton and the more actual Trump administration policies are debated these absurd characterizations (everything she said) are hopefully going to recede into the woodwork.

"We will see how it plays out over the long term. The more information that comes to light on Clinton ..."

What about more information on Trump coming to light, tax returns, who he owes money to, etc etc.

I'll take the old flickers on TMC - They were Real Actors while today there all Bad Actors who should study the craft 7 cut out the crap!

the more actual Trump administration policies are debated

A logical impossibility, since no such 'policies' exist.

Anyway, we need to hear dissenting voices all the more now. Long live Meryl Streep!
