Meryl Streep looks like Fairy Godmother from Shrek at Oscars

Can you see the resemblance?

I probably don't need to tell you that it's the Oscars tonight. You feel tired yet? No? Good.

The biggest night in all of showbiz, the awards are an opportunity to honour the best of the best in the entertainment industry. But, while it is usually all quite serious and/or emotional, as last year's La La Land / Moonlight mix-up demonstrated, there's occasionally a few laughs too.

This year Twitter has been out in full meme-force, after a clip of veteran actress Meryl Streep was aired. Her appearance at the at the 90th Academy Awards saw viewers compare her to the Fairy Godmother in Shrek - thanks to them each wearing glasses, tied back hair and a red dress.

What do you reckon?

The 68-year-old has been nominated for a record 21 Academy Awards over the course of her career - having won three in total - but nobody was talking about that as she was pictured in her chair.


 

I guess there are worse characters to be compared to.
