Viola Davis presented Meryl Streep with the Cecil B. DeMille Award during Sunday night’s Golden Globes and it was beyond moving, emotional, passionate, but above anything else … made us crave some apple pie and greens.

While Davis stood before Streep to honor the actress for her contribution to the entertainment industry, she opened up with a monologue chronicling a discussion she once had with the stellar performer.

According to Davis, it’s Streep who suggested a homemade apple pie isn’t an apple pie unless you use “pippin apples” and you forego store-bought crust. And it’s not collard greens unless you use “ham hocks.”

“She tilts that head back with that sly suspicious smile, you think do I have something in my teeth or does she want to kick my ass,” Viola joked.

After the talk of greens and apple pie, which was an instant catalyst for salivation, Davis went on to call the actress “a high-powered standing machine.” The actress continued, “She is an observer and a thief. She waits to share what she has stolen on that sacred place which is the screen.”

After a stunning montage of Meryl’s work over the past several decades, she accepted the award with grace, dignity, class, emotion and no voice. The star apologized for her raspy delivery, but went on to suggest “an actor’s only job is to enter the lives of people who are different than us and let you feel what that feels like.”

The beauty then delivered a political message, suggesting that “there was one performance this year that stunned me … sank hooks in my heart … it was effective and it did its job.”

Speaking of President-elect Donald Trump, she said, “It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country, imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back.”

“I still can’t get it out of my head. It was real life,” she said. “Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence.” Streep then asked the press “to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage.”

We know Mariah Carey changes managers like she changes clothes, but her next move could be her best move. According to Page Six Carey is in talks with Jay Z’s Roc Nation to manage her career.

Roc Nation manages Rihanna, Shakira, J Cole and DJ Khaled to name a few.

Apparently, the pop diva is hoping Hov and his team can put her back on top now that she parted ways with former manager Stella Bulochnikov earlier this month.

Sources tell HipHollywood Carey is cleaning house, and has also fired her publicist, assistant and attorney Darrell Miller.

But one person who hasn’t gotten the boot is her back-up dancer boyfriend Bryan Tanaka. Rumors were swirling that she hired Tanaka to take over her day-to-day management, but he’s actually her creative director.

Carey just released her holiday movie Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You, and is slated to bring her Christmas concerts back to the Beacon Theater in NYC this month. She hasn’t however dropped a new album in almost four years.

Fingers crossed this new partnership with Roc Nation brings about new music, and a Mariah / Jay Z collaboration. The two did make magic back in 1999 with their #1 single “Heartbreaker.”
