Streep wins Emmy for narrating "Five Came Back"

Well what a pleasant surprise. Last night, the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out and Meryl took home the gold for narrating the Netflix WWII documentary Five Came Back. She was not in attendance of course, as production is underway for Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!  Streep will now have three Emmys in her trophy case, this most recent in addition to those she won for her performances in the miniseries Holocaust (1978) and Angels in America (2003).  Now if we can just get The Nix into production, we can expect that she'll contend for her fourth!

Congratulations, Meryl.

  1. I forget they did these separately. Very nice surprise. I think she should have won a Grammy by now for her soundtrack work - maybe not Mamma Mia but Into The Woods. Ricki wasn't even nominated and her voice was outstanding on those.

    Hopefully we get the green light for The Nix soon. Wasn't so long ago we were anticipating Masterclass but these good roles help to make up for its' loss..
