Meryl Streep’s Golden Globe Award’s speech was everything and more and she showed how selfless she was, she could’ve used the platform to speak about herself… Instead she spoke about matters of the world today and diversity within hollywood. Her speech caught the eye of Dr. Martin Luther King’s daughter Bernice King…
She tweeted: “#MerylStreep, thanks for reminding us that we should live on what my father called ‘the higher plane of dignity and discipline’ #MLK.”

The Devil Wears Prada actress clearly holds herself to the “higher plane of dignity and discipline” that Bernice recalls of her father. But, she doesn’t leave the stage before she reminds her fellow thespians and lovers of the arts to uphold this higher plane by carrying out careers that adhere to her posthumous friend, Princess Leia’s (Carrie Fisher) words, “take your broken heart, make it into art.”
