  • Star Wars 9 SHOCK: Meryl Streep set to REPLACE Carrie Fisher as Leia in Episode IX?

    The 68-year-old Streep ... played a version of Fisher in Postcards from The Edge. [F]ans have petitioned for the Leia recasting, with almost 8000 signatures gathered. The petition states: “As the fans of STAR WARS and Carrie Fisher, we really want Leia to shine in Episode IX and we certainly do not want her to be written out of the film abruptly without a reasonable plot. Despite fan support, it’s not clear if a majority would be comfortable with such recasting following Fisher’s death. After all, to the fan base she is and always will be Princess Leia. However there...

    Meryl Streep has filed a trademark application for the rights to her own name in media and entertainment. The application, filed with the U.S. Trademark Office last week, asks for exclusive rights to the name Meryl Streep as it relates to “live, televised, and movie appearances by a professional actress and entertainer,” as well as personal appearances and speaking engagements. The trademark, if granted, would also prevent others from using her name on websites relating to the film and entertainment industry. A 21-time Oscar nominee, Streep is up for Best Actress again this year for portraying Washington Post publisher Katharine...

    An all-star cast has just gotten starrier. Meryl Streep, the most Oscar-nominated actress in history, is joining the second installment of HBO’s Emmy-winning limited series Big Little Lies. Streep will play Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Perry (played by Alexander Skarsgard in Season 1). Concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren following her son Perry’s death, Mary Louise arrives in Monterey searching for answers. This is the first new cast addition since the long-rumored second installment was officially greenlighted with a seven-episode order. Season 1 stars/executive producers Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon will return in their roles, respectively, as...

    Mery Streep has backed Oprah Winfrey to run for President amid an outpouring of praise for her Golden Globes speech. The actress said Oprah had 'launched a rocket' after the former talk show host accepted the Cecil B DeMille award at Sunday's Globes ceremony in Beverly Hills, California. Fans praised the 63-year-old for delivering 'one of the greatest American speeches' while others urged her to make a run for President in 2020. That sentiment was mirrored by Streep, 68, who said the businesswoman now 'doesn't have a choice'. Streep, who walked the Golden Globes' red carpet hand-in-hand with justice activist...

    Washigton Examiner ^ | 1-3-2018 | Caitlin Yilek
    Award-winning actress Meryl Streep took a shot at first lady Melania Trump and White House adviser Ivanka Trump for their “silence” on sexual harassment. Hollywood and Washington have been grappling with sexual misconduct allegations in recent months, and numerous well-known men in the media, politics, and the entertainment industry have been forced to resign or were fired as accusations surface. In an interview with the New York Times published Wednesday, Streep was asked about her own silence on the allegations against film producer Harvey Weinstein. “I don’t want to hear about the silence of me. I want to hear about...

    Responding to repeated Tweets from Rose McGowan that called her a hypocrite for planning to wear black at the Academy Awards to show unity with women who have been sexually assaulted and abused, actress Meryl Streep just sent out a public statement telling McGowan that they are actually on the same side “standing in defiance of the same implacable foe.” McGowan’s series of tweets over the weekend also took Streep to task for calling disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein’s behavior “disgraceful” instead of calling it “a crime” and for remaining silent and continuing to work for the man. Streep won a...

    Academy Award winner Meryl Streep called the alleged sexual harassment by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein “disgraceful,” “inexcusable,” and an “abuse of power.” She called the women who have spoken out against him “heroes.” In a statement sent to HuffPost exclusively by Streep’s longtime publicist Leslee Dart, Streep says she did not know that Weinstein― with whom she has collaborated for years on films like “August: Osage County” and “The Iron Lady” and once jokingly referred to as a “God”― was engaging in “inappropriate, coercive acts” and that he had paid financial settlements to at least eight women after they accused...

    Meryl Streep is defending herself after Chanel’s designer Karl Lagerfeld claimed that she dropped out of wearing a Chanel dress to this year’s Oscars in favor of a brand that would pay her. “In reference to Mr. Lagerfeld’s ‘statement,’ there is no ‘controversy’: Karl Lagerfeld, a prominent designer, defamed me, my stylist, and the illustrious designer whose dress I chose to wear, in an important industry publication,” Streep said in a statement to PEOPLE. “That publication printed this defamation, unchecked. Subsequently, the story was picked up globally, and continues, globally, to overwhelm my appearance at the Oscars, on the occasion...
  • A Speech to Denounce Meryl Streep

    Actress Meryl Streep isn't just denouncing the dire state of America at Hollywood awards shows. She's now taking her speech to far-left events, recently accepting the Ally Award from the LGBTQ political-correctness police at the Human Rights Campaign. Since so many Americans will never get to stand on an awards show stage and speak their mind about what's wrong with the world, we thought we'd present a speech responding to Streep and what she represents. "It is such an opportunity to present our thoughts on behalf of the broad swath of America that didn't earn the right to offer grand...

    Clooney, 55 - who is expecting twins with his wife Amal - referenced Trump's comments about Meryl Streep, after the actress hit out at the politician during her Golden Globes speech last month. The actor said, when quizzed on French TV show Rencontres de Cinema: “When Meryl spoke, everyone on that one side said, ‘well that’s elitist Hollywood speaking’. "Donald Trump has 22 acting credits in television. He collects $120,000 a year in his Screen Actors Guild pension fund. He is a Hollywood elitist." Clooney also added of the president's assistant: “Steve Bannon is a failed film writer and director....

    It’s time for the men in the white suits to escort Meryl Streep off stage and to a nice padded room in Malibu. There, her mind will be free to imagine fantastical boogeymen and conjure up evil, non-existent machinations emanating from the White House, while’s she fitted for a Vera Wang straight jacket. Actress Meryl Streep has declared war on President Donald Trump and has seemingly elected herself the spokesman for the left-wing, organic, gluten free, crazy creative community in LA LA Land. Last month at the Golden Globes Awards, Meryl used her five minutes of stage time to make...

    As Governor of Indiana, Mike Pence signed a bill banning abortion on the basis of sex, race, or of genetic disability such as Down's Syndrome. “I believe that a society can be judged by how it deals with its most vulnerable—the aged, the infirm, the disabled and the unborn. HEA 1337 will ensure the dignified final treatment of the unborn and prohibits abortions that are based only on the unborn child’s sex, race, color, national origin, ancestry, or disability, including Down syndrome.” “Some of my most precious moments as Governor have been with families of children with disabilities, especially those...

    THE GOLDEN GLOBALISTS By Burt Prelutsky 1/12/17 Aside from those nominated and the studios who like to run ads boasting of how many Oscars their movies have garnered, most people donÂ’t really care about the Academy Awards. But at least the overwhelming majority of the 4,000-odd people who get to vote are actively engaged in the movie business. In the case of the Golden Globes, voters consist of 93 foreigners who arenÂ’t even real correspondents. For the most part, they are freelance stringers whose work consists of occasionally peddling celebrity interviews to newspapers and magazines in England and Europe. The...

    The New York Post ^ | January 11, 2017 | Salena Zito
    This week we saw a few perfect examples of why liberal coastal elites are so resentful of middle America: It’s because the supposed rubes and rednecks aren’t more resentful of the elites — or, more specifically, the elites’ “success.” They don’t aspire to be like their self-appointed betters. Some Americans just don’t need much; they don’t think there’s anything wrong with wanting to have a 1,500-square-foot house, watch football and go to church on Sunday. They don’t want to leave their hometowns to come to Silicon Valley or Washington, DC, or Manhattan. They place great value on community and living...

    Trump will have broad presidential powers in dealing with “sanctuary cities”. I would like to propose he start with Los Angeles. To begin with, the area is filled with smug, anti-Trump elites like Meryl Streep. However, beyond that...the city is short millions ... and will have to borrow $70 million to meet expenses. Trump should unleash the full force of federal fury on this city, which is clearly in no fiscal condition for the upcoming battle.

    The National Board of Review dinner is like the big pre-game to the Golden Globes, where wine bottles are uncorked in New York and don’t stop flowing until the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s gala on Sunday. But this year’s ceremony will forever be remembered for its nine-minute tour-de-force speech from Meryl Streep. Streep, for once, wasn’t invited to accept an award. Instead, she was there to honor Emma Thompson for her portrait as “Mary Poppins” creator P.L. Travers in Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks.”

    <p>The Golden Globes ceremony on Sunday — where decked-out celebrities congratulate each other with awards — took a time out from the decadent fanfare and thank yous to other industry sycophants, to bash President-Elect Donald Trump.</p> <p>“All of us in this room really belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now,” said Meryl Streep, who was awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the Globe’s lifetime achievement award, in her acceptance speech. “Think about it. Hollywood, foreigners, and the press. … So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners and if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.”</p>

    Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never "mocked" a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him "groveling" when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!
