Lorenzo Soria, President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), made the announcement of Meryl Streep’s honor.
It’s no surprise that the HFPA has chosen Meryl Streep as the recipient of the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award. Meryl’s enthralling body of work across a diverse set of genres has made her a role model over the past 40 years, and she will continue to do so for generations to come. She has always taken roles with strong female leads, creating art by showing vulnerability and portraying truth on the big screen. Simply put, she is a trailblazer, having paved the way for women in television, film and stage. For shattering gender and age barriers, all with finesse and grace, the HFPA is humbled to bestow this honor upon her.

Chosen by the HFPA Board of Directors, the Cecil B. deMille Award is given annually to a talented individual for outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.
A commander-in-chief is the person or body that exercises supreme operational command and control of a nation’s military forces or significant elements of those forces. In the latter case, the force element is those forces within a particular region, or associated by function.
As a practical term, it refers to military competencies that reside in a nation-state’s executive leadership – either a head of state, a head of government, a minister of defense, a national cabinet, or some other body.
It’s definitely a scary thought to even consider “the donald” as the commander-in-chief of this country.
I can fathom him in any of the roles described above.
