Streep to join Carey Mulligan on Graham Norton Show

For the second time this year, Meryl will sit on Graham Norton's sofa.  In January it was to promote Into the Woods. On Oct 9, it will be to promote Suffragette. Nicole Kidman will also be a guest.  Not that this is incredibly exciting news, but I think The Graham Norton Show is absolutely hilarious, and it'll be great to hear Meryl discuss the film.  I think she's going to do A LOT of press for this pic.

I'll leave you with a fun clip from Streep's appearance earlier this year:

    Well I think this qualifies as exciting news! With no projects on the horizon (Again, why???), I'm glad we'll at least get to see her promote Suffragette- and the GN interviews are like 40 minutes long! There's no way this won't be entertaining! It seems like she's going to go hard promoting this film... I get why but it still seems odd that she's going to be everywhere promoting this when she's barely in it while she did practically nothing for her own movie (which needed all the help it could get). Whatever, I guess she knew that Ricki would be a forgettable nonstarter and didn't want to waste her time. Still I hope there's not a backlash once the public finds out that Meryl is only in the film for like 5 minutes even though they're practically promoting it as her movie.
    And what is with the lack of project news?! Someone of Meryl's caliber should have more than one thing lined up in the pipeline at a time. It's not like she had a busy year this year, she only shot one film.

      Even if she is intentionally taking time off, most good projects are announced at least a year in advance- I'm not expecting her to be filming anytime soon, but most projects take forever in pre-production, so it worries me that her name hasn't been attached to anything set to be made within the next couple years (assuming The Good House is a no go at this point since we haven't heard anything since that announcement 2 years ago).

  5. Looks like Meryl's going to be campaigning for a Judi Dench-esque nomination. Perhaps it won't get her all the way to the Oscars but maybe a Globe and BAFTA nom (especially as the later group have ignored her last two bids)

    1. I wouldn't actually mind a sneaky BAFTA nod to get Meryl's numbers up. They are notorious for rewarding British or those who play British and if the film continues to get solid reviews and Meryl campaigns for the film she could nab one.

      I remember in 2012 Dench was nominated for her small role in My Week with Marilyn in which she basically turned up and did her part. No more no less. Let's see..
