DeMille Award. But Streep also took the opportunity to speak her thoughts about President-elect Donald Trump.

In the middle of her speech, she noted the "performance" that grabbed her the most in 2016, for better or worse: Trump at a rally mocking New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, a disabled reporter.

"It kind of broke my heart when I saw it," she said, "and I still can't get it out my head because it wasn't in a movie, it was in real life. That instinct to humiliate when it's modelled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone's life because it gives permission for others to do the same."
