27. Meryl Streep, 2020
After 33 Golden Globe nominations and eight wins (not to mention other awards the actress has picked up throughout her career), Meryl Streep is no longer fussing about her dress for the red carpet. She’s earned her name in the industry, and though she doesn’t take her looks lightly, she also doesn’t try too hard to impress anyone. We take a look at her dress in this year’s ceremony, versus the ceremony of 2017, when she was the recipient of the honorary Cecil B. Demille Award for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.
The actress knows that black is always a winning color, and this year, her shiny black Dior gown was described as “timeless” – and we couldn’t agree more. But what people are talking about after the big night isn’t the actress’ tasteful dress, but her act of friendship towards fellow actress Helen Mirren: when the latter had a mishap with her gown, Merryl Streep rushed to her aid – that is, took her backstage and fixed her dress. In the few hours that passed since then, that’s all people can talk about, saying how the admire the actress for what she did. Some of the comments included, “friendship goals,” and “queens support queens.”
