During the 2017 BAFTAs on Sunday in London, host Stephen Fry was on hand to deliver most British insult to Donald Trump.
During his opening monologue, Fry jokingly referred to “the most overrated people on the planet” when addressing the audience. The camera cut to show Meryl Streep’s laughter, making the connection to Donald Trump’s infamous tweet about her pretty clear.
A short while later, when Fry introduced Streep herself, he went one step further.
“Unquestionably, on one of the greatest actresses of all time — only a blithering idiot would think otherwise — Meryl Streep!” he said.
"…one of the greatest actresses of all time – only a blithering idiot would think otherwise – Meryl Streep!"
