Meryl Streep won Best Actress at the National Board Of Review Awards in New York yesterday night for her performance in “The Post” . Robert De Niro was presenting the best actress award to Streep while discussing her movie ‘Post’.
Meryl Streep, accepting for best actress in The Post, got nostalgic about the men who had discovered her and promoted her early career moves, tying them together with two of the acceptance speeches that preceded hers. “It’s men, you know? I love men. Oh my God. Yeah, I know, it’s The Year of the Woman and everything, but oh my God. The men. All my mentors have been men”, she said. The Post, which was shut out Sunday at the Globes, was the NBR’s pick for best picture, actor and actress. Meryl ended her speech by sharing an anecdote from Pentagon Papers whistle-blower Daniel Ellsberg, who recently told the star, “‘You know, this moment for women? This #MeToo? This Time’s Up? This is your Pentagon Papers moment,'” and she added, “I think the movie really did meet its moment in time, and the Time’s Up. So let’s go, girls!”
