Oscars 2017 Red Carpet pictures, photos – Meryl Streep gets standing ovation

Los Angeles: Expect Meryl Streep to hog limelight wherever she goes. So it was no surprise when the actress got an standing ovation from actors, actresses and everyone else during the Academy Awards 2017.

The actress who was in a running battle with Donald Trump over immigrants and Muslim ban, got her 20th Oscar nomination for her leading role in “Florence Foster Jenkins”. The new White House occupant had described her “highly overrated”. Streep received a standing ovation from the audience at the 89th Academy Awards here. The annual awards show took place here on Sunday night and Streep lost the Best Actress trophy to Emma Stone’s “La La Land” act.


The occasion was not without references to Donald Trump. Kimmel took a jibe at Trump during his opening monologue in defence of Streep and he urged the audience to applaud the veteran actress, reports people.com. “Meryl Streep has phoned it in for more than 50 films over the course of her lackluster career. She wasn’t even in a movie this year — we just wrote her name in out of habit,” Kimmel joked.

He went on to add, “Please join me in giving Meryl Streep a totally undeserved round of applause. The highly overrated Meryl Streep, everyone”. After Streep took aim at Trump in her Golden Globes speech in January, Trump criticised her by calling her an “overrated” actress.
