Vince Vaughn and Mel Gibson, however, did not appear enthused.
The camera panned over to the two — who worked together on the Golden Globe–nominated war film, “Hacksaw Ridge,” and were seated at the same table for Sunday night’s ceremony — and showed them looking rather unhappy while Streep spoke.
Who knows for sure what the actors were thinking? They could have Resting Confused/Unhappy Face. Still, Twitter seized the moment.
Some wondered why Gibson ― whose racist and sexist diatribes somehow did not blacklist him from Hollywood years ago ― was invited.
As Rolling Stone’s Rob Sheffield put it, “Mel ‘Sugar Tits’ Gibson was on hand, for no discernible reason except to provide Vince with another glum white-man mug to sulk through Meryl’s speech.”
Sorry not sorry, guys.
