  • Meryl Streep, the best actress of Hollywood's modern times and the best of her generation. You are awesome and amazing.

  • What’s the name of the music played during her entrance onto the stage? Meryl’s dress looks stunning, btw…

  • These damned actors/actresses are like small children. Every week the stinking immature turds has to have that gold star put on their stinking foreheads. I'll bet the stinking egoists don't even realize that when one wins one of those gold stars for that stinking forehead those presenting the star are telling them the gold star makes her/him better at what they do than the rest of them. Wasn't streep one of those hollyjews who protected and stood up for those jew rapists producers?

  • I remember when Ms Streep won the AFI Lifetime Achievement was in this country then before leaving to go back home to London. Remember that dress it was a beautiful dress , always looks lovely been a fan for forty one years , and despite her anti Pres Trump comments NEVER stopped liking her she is remarkable . Did not see her hug Jack Nicholson on her way to get her award though. Thank you for posting this so can enjoy it again for those seen it before

  • Oh Meryl…so naturally funny. Thanking her parents for everything she knows about drama…a short gap before the applause…made it funnier…I love you Meryl!!!

  • "When a great actor occurs, it changes several generations because human behavior is redefined. For other actors, Meryl is not only a life-giving force for those lucky enough to act with her, since it immediately increases one’s talent a thousand percent simply to look at her in a scene. But she also defines what is possible for an actor as an artist… as a parent… as a citizen. Meryl creates, has created and continues to create a series of unique human beings, each with a soul. Sometimes as many as four people at a time. That is something for artists to aim at. Never ever has Meryl Streep come on a set for a day’s work without giving the strong feeling, like a kid in a play in school: “Oh boy, I get to do this again.” Oh boy Meryl, we get to watch you some more!"

  • I WAS ONE WHO WAS NOT IMPRESSED NEITHER WERE MOST OTHER AMERICANS . MERYL STREEP WILL YOU SHUT THE HELL* UP. THE RATINGS FOR THE AWARD SHOWS HAVE DROPPED WAY OFF BECAUSE WE DON'T TO HEAR YOUR STUPID RANTS. SO DO AMERICA A FAVOR , AGAIN SHUT THE HELL* UP .

  • What a stunningly beautiful woman, inside and out. A talent that comes around once every million years.

  • Meryl Streep is a hell of an actor, she "convinced' me that she actually cares about women while worshiping known misogynist Harvey Weinstein… * slow clap * Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

  • I just love her. She is absolutely stunning. So talented abd such a lovely humble human being as well. Love love love. <3

  • Does anyone know if or where you can watch the whole tribute to Meryl? I've been trying to find it for months and it's driving me crazy lol I really want to see it

  • Its a thing about Merryl that botheres me. I dont know if even in real life she is acting the sensibility and else or what???

  • I like how AFI gives these awards to such great talents. So many wonderful female actresses of our times. Meryl is definitely one of them and what an illustrious career she's had. I would love to see her and Barbra Streisand in a film together. Class act she is. Love her entrance to the stage and on the podium. When you're passionate about what you do, you remember your craft is all for the people to behold. Dramatic flair, humor timings, and a humble character. She's so in awe that we can't help but root for her more.

  • That look on her face when she say's thank you Don for your GORGEOUS…….DNA. Damn this woman is so amazing.
