Lainey called me out last night, and she was right, for pussy footing around the fact that The Iron Lady suuuuucked.  I mean, not just a little bit.  That movie was really, really bad ΓǪbut you got so distracted by Meryl.  There was a moment in the movie where she communicated with her face ΓÇ£well, I could, not that he would care anyway, but whatΓÇÖs a mother to do, these days? ThatΓÇÖs my lot in lifeΓÇ¥.   How can she DO that?  

ItΓÇÖs that same thing that makes her so completely compelling in person.   When she forgot her glasses and just decided to start naming actresses she loves, how can you look away? I know some of you thought it was a little big self-serving ΓÇô after all, itΓÇÖs not like she was heaping all the praise before the (deserved) win ΓÇô but she knows how to keep you watching, right?

Which is why, does it matter that she was wearing a cowgirlΓÇÖs dress?  Meryl is Above.  SheΓÇÖs above cramming her hips into Spanx.   I mean, please.  SheΓÇÖs Meryl Streep!   And the dress is plain and boring and doesnΓÇÖt do a thing for her really, but everyoneΓÇÖs also forgotten it already this morning, so maybe it did what it was supposed to.
