Not everyone loved Meryl Streep's anti-Trump speech at the Golden Globes...

Just when we thought our 'Reasons to love Meryl Streep' list was getting just a little out of hand, along she comes and does another amazing and glorious thing. This time it was using her Cecil B DeMille lifetime achievement acceptance speech at the Golden Globes to take a swipe at Donald Trump, calling out an incident on the campaign trail when he impersonated a disabled reporter. Preaching to the choir, you might say – and from Ryan Gosling to Amy Adams, the Hollywood stars who had gathered for the Globes were pretty appreciative.

But check out the shot at 5.08: clearly, not everyone was having a good time. Over in the corner, the makers and stars of 'Hacksaw Ridge', Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn, looked decidedly put out. Professed conservatives both, Mel 'n' Vince clearly took umbrage at Meryl's speech. 

The President Elect himself took to Twitter to take a pop at her. That's hardly unique behaviour for the reality-show-star-turned-president-elect. But given how many awards shows there'll be over the next four years, and how many people out there in movieland have expressed dismay at his election, he should probably get used to the abuse.

Check out this list of British successes at this year's Golden Globes.
