The event was also attended by the great Amy Schumer, on hand to accept the Charlie Chaplin Award for comedy. Schumer thanked "God" saying "by God, I mean Meryl Streep." If there were any possibility of Meryl in fact being in consideration to portray Amy's mom in the upcoming Jonathan Levine comedy, there seems to have certainly been ample opportunity to network. IMDb Pro now has that film slated for a 2017 release, which of course suggests a 2016 filming start. Meryl's schedule seems to be rather barren in the upcoming months as far as film production goes. A couple days ago I came across info that suggests one of her "in development" projects may still have life. More on that tomorrow.

Streep honored with Britannia Award
Streep was on hand last night in Los Angeles to be honored with the Stanley Kubrick Award for excellence in film by BAFTA Los Angeles. Introduced by director Stephen Frears, who earlier this year directed her in the upcoming Florence Foster Jenkins, Meryl ironically sported a lovely tuxedo as the first woman to be recognized with the award.
