Meryl Streep makes powerful awards speech

People are normally talking about the best outfits, but did Meryl Streep steal the limelight with her powerful Golden Globes speech as she took aim at a certain well-known US president-elect?

If you haven’t already heard what Streep had to say as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille honoree, she ripped into Donald Trump, who she didn’t mention by name, and brought the Golden Globes audience to its feet with applause in the process!

As the Mail reports, Streep took issue with the way Trump mocked a disabled reporter, and called it the most stunning performance of the year. She said: “It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can't get it out my head because it wasn't in a movie, it was in real life.”

She also mentioned nominees by name and Hollywood's multicultural makeup, saying it was crawling with outsiders and foreigners and if you kick them all out, “you'll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts”.
