As expected, Emma Stone took the award in Meryl's category tonight, but the biggest moment of the evening went to our girl as she provided a riveting speech in accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement.
I don't think anyone expected Meryl to be so cutting in her criticism of Donald Trump. Never actually mentioning his name, she instead invoked her late friend Carrie Fisher in stating "take your broken heart and make it into art." She called upon the "principled" press to bear the standards of truth and bolstered the work of her fellow artists saying "an actor's only job is to enter the lives of people who are different from us and let you feel what that feels like."
So proud to be a fan of this woman. Brava, Meryl.
