Priyanka Chopra is nailing it at the Golden Globes 2017. The actress is getting mixed to positive response for her Ralph Lauren outfit. She is making a lot of friends at the event. She met up Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and posed for a picture. She also presented an award, and then clicked for a few pictures with Jeffrey Dean Morgan. She is also had a fun time with Sofia Vergara -posing for funny videos and all. But probably the best meeting for her was Meryl Streep. Priyanka posed for a selfie with the legendary actress, and quoted her Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech.
Meryl Streep, who was honoured with the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 74th Golden Globe Awards, slammed US President-elect Donald Trump during her acceptance speech. Streep was paid a tribute at the gala with video montage which had excerpts of her roles in different movies she worked in over three decades. “Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners, and if you kick us all out, you’ll have nothing to watch except for football and mixed martial arts, which are not arts,” Streep said on stage while outlining her New Jersey upbringing, plus the non-Los Angeles backgrounds of Sarah Paulson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, Ruth Negga, Viola Davis, Dev Patel and Ryan Reynolds. Priyanka Chopra shared the selfie with the gutsy actress and wrote “Quoting my favourite #MerylStreep, as I call an end to this night…when u have a broken heart..make art. You are astounding.#fangirl” We are totally loving this one, and it is without a doubt one of Priyanka’s best pics from the evening.

She echoed Hugh Laurie’s comment about how the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is part of “the most vilified segments in American society right now”. Streep then noted that one “performance” stood out this year – that of Trump when he mocked a disabled reporter at a rally. Also Read: OOPS!

“There was nothing good about it, but it did its job. 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. That instinct to humiliate when it’s modelled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone’s life because it gives permission for others to do the same,” the 67-year-old said.
“We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage … We’re going to need them going forward and they’re going to need us to safeguard the truth. Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence,” she added.
After calling for the press to stand up against Trump, Streep concluded her speech by quoting late actress Carrie Fisher. “Take your broken heart, make it into art,” she said. Actress Viola Davis presented the honour to Streep, who got emotional while accepting it. “Her artistry reminds us of the impact of what it means to be an artist, which is to make us feel less alone. You make me proud to be an artist. You make me feel that what I have in me “my body, my face, my age” is enough,” she told Davis.
