Thanks to certain unexpected *cough* goof ups *cough* things that happened last year at the Oscars, expectations and excitement was higher than usual as we sat in front of our screens to watch the 90th Academy Awards unfold.
And this time around too, the awards night did not disappoint us and for most part of the entertainment we can give the credit to legendary actress Meryl Streep.
Meryl Streep is up for her 21st award this year and we can officially call it a record now, because achievement will be too small a word to use for someone who has the most number of Academy Award nominations.
When Meryl Streep is not busy winning our hearts and all the major awards with her exceptional performance, she spends her time updating her own meme (not really).
Last year it took her just a ‘shout-out’ to break the internet. If you don’t remember what that meme was or never saw it in the first place, congratulations you missed out on one of the best things internet could offer.
But, being the good Samaritans we are, we’ll remind you of what that meme was.

This time was no different and Meryl decided to take charge of giving the world a new meme, which has ‘Shrek’ written all over it.

While, Meryl looked striking in a red gown, all that people could see was Shrek’s fairy Godmother descend to the red carpet and then take her seat at the Dolby Theatre.

We are now wondering who wore it better – Streep or the Godmother herself.
