Amazing: Meryl Streep and J.Lo’s Reactions to Patricia Arquette’s Oscar Speech

Obviously,  her points are amazing and valid and very warranted, but nobody agreed with Arquette more than seat-mates Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lopez, whose collective body language screamed “YAZZZZZZZ,” “PREACH,” and “WERK.”
