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.

Bill O’Reilly: ‘INSANE’ how badly Kamala & Biden handled border crisis

Vice President Kamala Harris — tasked by President Biden to handle the current border crisis — is currently on, what Bill O'Reilly calls, 'the befuddlement tour.' So not only has Joe Biden ruined the border situation beyond repair, O'Reilly explains, he's now also chosen somebody who seemingly is incapable of solving problems to fix the problem. O'Reilly says it's 'INSANE' how badly they've handled this situation and that it's time for Americans to take a stand, show the government some backlash, and finally say 'enough!'

Biden's Hostile Takeover: The Great Reset of America

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.
