Meryl Streep gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Remember last year when Leonardo DiCaprio was on the award circuit for The Revenant how the storyline was all what a travesty it was that he didn’t have an Oscar. Leo’s due! It’s his time! Like somehow he, Leonardo DiCaprio, LEONARDO DICAPRIO!, was hard done by. Forty years old or so. Full Story

You know what I mean by MVP, right? There are others who will get the label ‘best dressed’ (though for me, this yellow column came very close. Davis always does colours but this was the best and it’s only January!) and there are others who were arguably ‘bigger’ winners, but Viola made the whole night come together. Full Story

The catch-up continues with Meryl Streep’s latest Oscar vehicle, Florence Foster Jenkins. I want to sh*t on this movie for being too saccharine and unevenly balanced between its two leads, but this movie is explicitly about NOT sh*itting on people who are trying really hard, even if they fall short in the end.

Carey Mulligan covers the new ELLE UK ahead of the release Suffragette in which she stars alongside Meryl Streep and Helena Bonham Carter. This is the magazine’s feminism issue. And this week, many of you have been emailing me about Meryl and Marion Cotillard, and their responses to questions about being feminists. Full Story
You know the kind of movie your parents suggest watching when you’re visiting, and you agree to watch it because you know it’s relatively harmless entertainment that won’t include a graphic sex scene or anything similarly mortifying to watch with your parents? But then you end up pretending like you don’t actually like it because you’re not supposed to get sucked into the kind of populist maudlin tripe that’s made to appeal to white middle-aged suburban parents, except you do like it because goddamn it, it’s just so earnest and heartfelt that it works, even if it is crazy cheesy? And when it’s over and your parents ask if you like it, you downplay your reaction and go, “It was okay, I guess. Full Story
The hashtag #squadgoals often appears in wanderlust Instagram captions about a power posse, but it’s best paired with the two new Suffragette trailers. Carey! Meryl! The HBC! They're the HBICs fighting for a vote for women in the film – I’m all in. "We break windows, we burn things," Carey's character Maud says in the trailer. Full Story
A trailer for the upcoming Ricki and The Flash was released yesterday starring Meryl Streep as a rock star. Which basically means Meryl Streep will be nominated for more. And she totally should be. As usual, she’s amazing. But so is Audra McDonald. And that’s another bonus. Another? Written by Diablo Cody. Oh and… Rick Springfield. Ha.
It’s a little…what’s the word?... schmaltzy, for sure. But Meryl’s got what looks like an American flag tattooed on her back. I feel like that might make up for the schmaltz. The movie comes out August 7th which hasn’t traditionally been the strongest month for releases. But in recent years, we’ve seen some winners emerging from August. So let’s not yet hold August against Ricki. The hair-combs at the back of her head on the other hand…
