La La Land may have won a record 7 Golden Globes at this year's awards, but Meryl Streep won the evening with a speech everyone needed to hear.
She is my hero on so many levels. Meryl has not only played some of my favorite characters like Miranda Priestly, but she also has a history of standing up for what is right. Are we surprised she dedicated her Golden Globes lifetime achievement award to doing just that? Her words underscore the power of empathy.
Also this tweet perfectly captured the other sentiment.
