Meryl Streep Reads Traffic Report as Woman in Labor (Video)

Meryl Streep waves to the audience before sitting down for an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Monday (January 20).

The 64-year-old actress chatted with the talk show host about receiving her 18th nomination for the Academy Awards. She just got nominated for her work in the movie August: Osage County!

During the appearance, Meryl was given a few different cards full of super boring monologues like an oatmeal card, a traffic report, and a Wikipedia page. She was then told she had to read them in different and interesting voices. Watch the video below!

so funny…what a class act and not apprehensive about willing to try anything to widen her scope as an actress. Love her.

Best actress EVER!!!!

Meryl is so endearing. Have to admit I wanted Thompson to get in over her for the Oscars though.

# 6

So darn overrated.

# 7

I dont care who’s getting the oscar, no one will EVER come close to Meryl. She’s the BEST.

It’s so weird she didn’t win anything for her brilliant performance in August : Osage County, just because she had already won every one of them. She should have won at least one award.

I just saw August : Osage County. She’s just WOW!!…If she didnt win the Oscar two years ago, she was BOUND to win this year.
