Meryl Streep Tribute Encore
by Betty Jo Tucker

From March 18 through March 31, Movie Addict HQ is featuring an “On Demand/Best Of” episode about Meryl Streep’s remarkable film career. Noted film critic Mack Bates is our special guest on this popular show that aired first in August, 2015.  

Listeners can hear this encore show at any time by clicking on the BlogTalkRadio link at the end of this article.

Known for being a perfectionist in preparing for her roles, Streep also boasts the ability to master any accent. Drama, comedy, musicals -- all have been conquered by this acclaimed actress. Her multi-talents even inspired Afterbirth Monkey, an Astoria based comedy band, to put together “Meryl Streep Is from the Future,” an amusing musical tribute to Streep, which listeners will be able to hear during the show.  

Considered by many to be the greatest contemporary film actress, Streep has been honored with three Oscars and numerous Academy Award nominations. She earned those Oscars for The Iron Lady,  Sophie’s Choice and Kramer vs. Kramer. But some of her most popular performances can be seen in such lighter fare as The Devil Wears Prada, It’s Complicated, and Mamma Mia. Meryl demonstrates considerable vocal talent as a rock-and-roll singer in Ricki and the Flash, which is also discussed during this encore episode.  

Mack Bates, a frequent guest on Movie Addict Headquarters, has written freelance articles for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and serves as a staff blogger for Milwaukee Magazine’s official film blog. He also received a local Emmy for his work on The Robert and Rosie Show
