Oscars Crowd Gives Meryl Streep "A Totally Undeserved Round of Applause"

At the 89th Annual Academy Awards, host Jimmy Kimmel took a dig at President Trump for his comments about highly acclaimed actress, Meryl Streep, being "over-rated."

Streep's Best Actress nomination [for Florence Foster Jenkins] at the 2017 Oscar's was record-breaking, putting her at 20 total nominations over the span of her career.

Kimmel encouraged the audience to give Meryl a "totally undeserved" round of applause, as she stood the test of time for her many uninspiring and overrated performances.”

Jimmy said: “May I say from her mediocre early work in The Deer Hunter and Out of Africa to her underwhelming performances in Kramer vs. Kramer and Sophie’s Choice, Meryl Streep has phoned it in for more than 50 films over the course of her lackluster career. This is Meryl’s 20th Oscar nomination. Maybe even more amazing, considering the fact that she wasn’t even in a movie this year. We just wrote her name down out of habit.

What do you think about all of this?
