The 89th Academy Awards host Jimmy Kimmel's opening monologue
ended with a tribute to the Hollywood's most iconic and celebrated
actress Meryl Streep. However, Kimmel in his signature style made
fun of President Donald Trump for calling the actress most
Jimmy Kimmel in his speech addressed the actress Meryl Streep,
who has got nominations in Oscar 20 times in her career, "one of
the most overrated actresses in Hollywood."
Because earlier this year, Donald Trump had mentioned Meryl
Streep, as "one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood."
Drawing reference to that, Kimmel said, "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 Deer Hunter and Out of
Africa to her underwhelming performances in Kramer vs Kramer and
Sophie's Choice, Meryl Streep has phoned it in in over 50 films." Jimmy Kimmel stated.
"Let's give Meryl Streep a totally underserved round of
applause," added Jimmy Kimmel. However, instead, the actress
received a standing ovation from the crowd and audience.
However, Kimmel further directed a joke at Meryl Streep saying,
"Nice dress, by the way. Is that an Ivanka?"
