Confirmed: Meryl Streep Is Awful

Last night during the 89th annual Academy Awards, host Jimmy Kimmel inadvertently provided evidence that Meryl Streep is overrated.

Here's a list of the things he jokingly said about the esteemed actress:

• We're also here to honor actors who seem great, but actually really aren't.

• One in particular has stood the test of time for her many uninspiring and overrated performances.

• Meryl Streep has phoned it in for more than 50 films in the course of her lackluster career.

• Please join me giving Meryl Streep a totally undeserved round of applause.

• The highly overrated Meryl Streep, everyone.

"All true. Meryl Streep, awful. It's over. It's been decided. She lost again, by the way. She's three of 18 now. If you're hitting 167 and remaining in the majors, let me know. But apparently Meryl is the greatest of all time," Co-host Stu Burguiere said Monday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

STU: We were talking about the Oscars, and I was bringing up these guys. They didn't see any of it, which that is the right move. But there was one great moment with Meryl Streep. We can get the audio for later today. But I'm a big proponent of the fact that Meryl Streep is awful. In fact, as she was nominated for her Best Actress award, which she gets every year just like by mistake. Like they don't even know they're doing it. The nomination, she was -- they showed a clip of her movie. Which was -- do you remember the name of it? I don't know. It's an incomprehensible --

PAT: Was it the Florence Foster Jenkins?

STU: Yes. So there's a clip they play of all the movies --

PAT: It's a true story, by the way. It's an interesting story.

STU: The story is interesting. I would want to see it, if it's not for her.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Like I'd actually -- the story is interesting. It's about an heiress.

PAT: Terrible singer.

STU: But she had everyone around her -- they were all "yes" men.

PAT: And they tried to protect her.

STU: They tried to protect her and let her think that she was a good singer. So there's a point where she's singing and obviously singing horribly, which is the only thing she's capable of, by the way.

PAT: And she actually performed at Carnegie Hall, which had to be something else.

JEFFY: Come on.

STU: Exactly.

PAT: Because truly terrible.

STU: But they come back to Meryl Streep after showing the clip as they always do, and even Meryl Streep is embarrassed by Meryl Streep.

PAT: She's cringing?

STU: She's actually cringing by her own performance. It's incredible.

So last night --

JEFFY: Great.

PAT: It's great.

STU: -- Jimmy Kimmel does this joke, and he's joking, but what he says is everything that's true about Meryl Streep.

This is what he says: He says, we're here tonight to honor actors, but we're also here to honor actors who seem great, but actually really aren't.

(laughter)

STU: And of all the great actors here in Hollywood, one in particular has stood the test of time for her many uninspiring and overrated performances. From her mediocre early work in the Dear Hunter and Out of Africa, to her underwhelming performances in Cramer versus Cramer and Sophie's Choice, Meryl Streep has phoned it in for more than 50 films in the course of her lackluster career. This is Meryl's 20th Oscar nomination, made even more amazing considering the fact that she wasn't even in a movie this year. We just wrote her name down out of habit.

Meryl, stand up, if you would.

PAT: It's funny.

STU: Everyone please join me giving Meryl Streep a totally undeserved round of applause. The highly overrated Meryl Streep, everyone. We're going to have fun tonight. I hope we have fun tonight. Nice dress, by the way. Is that an Ivanka? Which is a funny ending to it.

PAT: Kind of funny.

STU: But all true. Meryl Streep, awful. It's over. It's been decided. She lost again, by the way. She's three of 18 now. If you're hitting 167 and remaining in the majors, let me know. But apparently Meryl is the greatest of all time.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle

Big Tech isn't making it easy for organizations outside of the left's coalition to survive. Amy Peikoff is the Chief Policy Officer for Parler — the social media platform now throttled by Amazon, Apple, and Google. She joins Glenn to discuss the recent moves made against Parler and how the company is fighting to move forward: "We're doing everything we can to save civil discourse on the Internet. I promise: We're on it."

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.

Here's how the left used COVID-19 to DESTROY us & our kids

COVID 19 was used to not only destroy businesses, morale, and education but to destroy us and our kids, too. The left is in control of nearly everything now, and they've used that power to make us feel alone. Glenn says he believes a miracle could happen to turn this great nation back towards the principles on which it was founded — BUT, we must turn back towards God first. Life DOES have meaning and tomorrow WILL be better.
