Meryl Streep already has her submission ready for this year’s Academy Awards.
The three-time Oscar winner, 69, delighted the crowd at the men’s singles US Open final on Sunday with her outsized reactions to the action on the court. And while Streep may have gotten lost in a crowd of thousands at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queen, New York, viewers at home were living for her amazing facial expressions.
“And the award for best performance by a fan in a leading role goes to…” the official US Open Twitter account wrote of Streep looking shocked while watching Novak Djokovic winning his 14th major tournament over Juan Martin del Potro.
Other viewers quickly turned Streep’s shocked face into a meme.
