Meryl Streep Accepts Monte Cristo Award, Quotes

Read More

Meryl Streep collected another well deserved accolade from the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center.  Streep was praised by playwrites Tracy Letts and Tony Kushner.  Here is what Letts had to say (quote from Hollywood Reporter): “I’m very mistrustful of an actor who shows up knowing all of their lines, because that actor is not trusting the process,” said Letts, explaining that memorization is the easiest part of the job. “She was…

Written, directed by, and starring Tommy Lee Jones. The story here is Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank as prairie folk escorting three insane women across the frontier from Nebraska to Iowa.

Jeff Schneider got the scoop for The Wrap about a project on the horizon directed by Jonathan Demme, written by Diablo Cody, and starring Meryl Streep.

I love that projects are developed and made because Streep is involved.

The post-game chatter about Meryl Streep’s intro for Emma Thompson at the National Board of Review completely missed the point of what Streep was saying. Moreover, the beauty in Streep’s speech was shunted to the side as the churning and hysteria found its way from comments section to blog to comments section. “Streep has insulted Walt Disney! Streep has hurt Emma Thompson’s Oscar chances! Streep has insulted everybody! Streep just…
