Attending the glitzy event were Gal Gadot, Angelina Jolie, Saoirse Ronan, Greta Gerwig, Lupita Nyong’o, Allison Williams, Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Robert De Niro, Steven Spielberg, Daniel Kaluuya, Jordan Peele and many more.

Robert De Niro made news as he presented Meryl Streep with the Best Actress Award for The Post, slamming President Trump as the “jerk-off in chief.”

The Wizard of Lies actor said, “It was fascinating to watch The Post. That story took place nearly 50 years ago, but there are many parallels today, obviously.” He added, “This f—ing idiot is the president. It’s The Emperor’s New Clothes. The guy is a f—ing fool.”
