a snippet of dialogue from her interview after the ceremony (in this section of the interview, meryl had been raving about mia wasikowska’s performance in jane eyre):
interviewer: michael fassbender wasn’t too bad in it [jane eyre], either!
meryl: oh, he’s never bad…
*meryl glances around the stage, sips her drink nonchalantly*
-audience laughs harder-
*meryl waves to her husband, who is sitting a few rows back*
