Trevor Noah actually really liked Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes acceptance speech … except for one tiny, little part.
The Daily Show host dedicated his opening monologue on Monday to recapping the Globes. Noah pointed out the diversity of the nominees and winners, plus he also spent some time poking fun at “Hidden Fences.” But, it was Streep and her stirring speech that got Trevor really going.
Initially, the South African-born host praised Meryl for “powerful” words calling Trump out for mocking a disabled reporter. But, soon Noah was chastising the Academy Award-winning actress for being “tone-deaf.” During her moment on stage, Meryl stated, “Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. And if you kick ’em all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts … which are not the arts.” That’s when Trevor took issue. “I understand what Meryl Streep was trying to do, and I don’t know if I could have done better in that moment, but here’s the thing I feel like we could all learn as people: You don’t have to make your point by s–tting on someone else’s thing because a lot of people love football and the arts.”
Trevor went on to say he was even watching the NFL before the big show and often football and the arts go hand in hand. Check out the full video below and see why Trevor says you may have missed “the larger point.”
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
