    My favorite Meryl Streep memory is gonna be in 2020 when Trump will win again, and she and her Hollywood friends will cry and shout like starving babies.

        I'm just sad :(
        Shailene Woodley is so underrated.
        She deserves an Oscar award.
        But I don't know why she has no award or any nomination, maybe because of her issues about Native Americans.

          @Federica Berardi She's undeniably famous and really an amazing actress but she doesn't have any nominations or award from Oscars.

          @Georgie Merry it's about the Dakota Pipeline. You can watch it here in Youtube on how she fought against Dakota Pipeline just to preserve the land for Native Americans.

          This is not true.
          She has 2 golden globe nominations and one nomination for Emmy. She won also an indipendent spirit award and probably this years she will receive another golden globe and emmy nominations for Big little lies 2

                    I sincerely love Meryl, but damn, could all the interviewers stop asking the whole cast about Meryl? And not only that, they continue asking and deeping in that. I'm sure they want to be asked about their own work too...

I always wondered about how Meryl works out the collaborative aspects of acting behind the scenes, since she's such a master, and since acting and telling stories is such a COLLABORATIVE process.This little anecdote from Shailene has alleviated decades of aching curiosity, but I'm so eager to know more about Meryl's process behind the scenes, and how she works to first understand, then inhabit, then craft her character, weaving it into the fabric of the story.
