United States


One of our most highly regarded film actresses, Streep set her sights on television with a role in the second season of HBO awards magnet “Big Little Lies,” and fittingly the role earned her Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominations. After production was shuttered for a time, she recently completed production on Ryan Murphy’s long-anticipated Netflix film adaptation of Broadway musical “The Prom,” which premiered in December 2020.
