Slay Meryl, Slay!

If you watched the 74th Golden Globes last night you saw who was honored the best in film and television in 2016 and the hottest looks of the red carpet. But the real highlight of the night was when Meryl Streep accepted the Cecil B. DeMille award for a lifetime of notable work in the industry. The legendary actress used her spotlight to make a not so subtle attack on US President-elect Donald Trump…

“There was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart. Not because it was good, there was nothing good about it, but it was effective and it did its job. It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter. Someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back.” (referring to this video)

Meryl was of course criticized by some for her choice to bring politics to the awards show, but the room full of celebs laughed and applauded her speech, as well as many praising her on social media. In my eyes, her speech made her even more iconic. Slay!
