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.

Trump on Vaccine Mandates, Biden's COVID Failures, & Ignoring Fauci

Trump to discuss what actually happened under his administration during COVID, including why Fauci "wasn't a big factor" for him. Glenn also asked the president if he supports vaccine mandates.

WATCH: The Jan. 6 DISTRACTION: Glenn & President Trump on Overcoming America’s REAL Challenges

Democrats and the mainstream media are laser-focused on making the one-year anniversary of January 6 the only news topic this week. The New York Times editorial board says, “January sixth is not in the past, it is every day.”

The Left could not be more tone-deaf on this. Average Americans don’t dwell on January 6 because they can’t afford to. They have real challenges to deal with, many of which didn’t even exist one year ago – things like food and gas prices and inflation. Every day, Americans are experiencing the stark difference it makes to live under a federal government controlled by Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer.

Glenn Beck says leftists are using January 6 as a distraction from their own drastic failures over the past year. Americans want to talk about real issues, so Glenn traveled to Mar-a-Lago for an exclusive conversation with former President Trump about our reality under Biden’s leadership now and how we fix our future. They also discuss the authoritarian vaccine mandates, what he would do about Fauci if he were still in office, and the growing threats from Russia and China.

The former president also answers how he would take on a Deep State committed to his destruction if he runs for a second term. Finally, Glenn reveals his strategy for candidates to easily win against the disastrous Democrats in ’22 and ’24.
