“Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press,” Streep began as she accepted the  Cecil B. DeMille Award . “You and all of us in this room really, belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now: Hollywood, foreigners and the press."

After a comprehensive run-down of some of her fellow artists' hometowns and home countries, she said, “Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. If we kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and Mixed Martial Arts – which are not the arts.”
