Filmmaker Gauri Shinde said: "Let's copy their grace, their guts, not their films. Meryl Streep the real true hero, the star. Golden Globes."

Actress Neha Dhupia tweeted: "All hail the queen...When Meryl Streep talks...Hollywood the foreigners the press and the world shuts up and listens! Golden Globes."

Composer Vishal Dadlani wrote: I wish we had someone with the courage to feel so deeply, and speak so openly and clearly, here as well. Thank you, Meryl Streep .

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta hailed her as a "goddess".

Actress Dia Mirza wrote: "More reason to love Meryl Streep. 'Active empathy' is a choice that few make. Respect", while Sophie Choudry commented: "I love you so much Meryl Streep... Golden Globes bonafide legend."
