By sweatpantsmom |

meryl-streep-golden-globes-2010Meryl Streep took home a statuette at Sunday Night’s 67th Annual Golden Globes ceremony by beating out…Meryl Streep. The actress won for her portrayal of chef Julia Child in “Julie & Julia,” and was competing against herself – she was also nominated for “It’s Complicated.” In a speech that would make any parent proud, Streep recalled her late mother and her “joy in living.”

In her emotional speech Streep told the audience that playing Julia Child allowed her to channel her late mother, who came from the same generation and “shared her verve” and her positive outlook. “She had no patience for gloom and doom. I am not like that,” Streep said.

Alluding to the tragedy unfolding in Haiti, Streep talked about her difficulty in reconciling her charmed life with the events unfolding elsewhere in the world.  She said this moves her to channel her mother and use her good fortune to help others, like donating to Partners in Health and being thankful for her success. “I am grateful, I am really grateful,” Streep said.
