(2017-01-09) — Hollywood legend Meryl Streep is now the odds-on favorite to receive the Emmy for Best Comic Actress in a Variety Show after her hilarious performance brought the house down at last night’s Golden Globe Awards.

Streep, whose Hollywood career has spanned some seventeen decades, became an Emmy shoo-in for her sharply-satirical portrayal of an aging, wealthy white woman, who lives in opulent splendor behind a security cordon, as she denigrates an elderly, wealthy white man for his failure to show respect to others.

The Hollywood Reporter said Streep’s performance, “Dripped with deliciously-rich irony.”

Variety gushed that, “Streep earned a permanent pedestal in the pantheon of comic pathos, reminding us all of the original Greek word for ‘acting behind a mask’: hypokritḗs.”
