How much did Weinstein's downfall affect Meryl's career?

I remember her getting called out by Rose McGowan on Twitter for her silence on Harvey's behavior all these years, and her having to defend herself by pleading ignorance which nobody bought.

The God comment didn't help her, though in fairness that was taken out of context.

Then the Polansky standing ovation, which she sort of led, also went viral at some point.

After the whole fiasco died down, she kind of just, fell off? She's mostly played supporting parts since then, and the couple of lead roles never made a splash. She used to generate Oscar buzz every year for literally any movie she was in but she hasn't come up in any award conversation since The Post.

And more importantly, she just doesn't come up in conversations period nowadays. People used to bring her up all the time in admiration but nobody really talks about her anymore.

So has her legacy been forever tainted? Is it over for her for can she still get her career and reputation back?

Her career and legacy are fine. Many Hollywood stars grovelled for Weinstein and clapped for Polanski. The only people obsessed with trying to bring her down are angry right wingers who hate her politics and perpetually online " woke" twitter activists who seethe with hate towards older women and will attempt to scapegoat them for larger societal problems. Funny how Streep was " complicit" in Weinsteins perversions but all of the ladies sucking him off for a part are pure as the driven snow.

She had a couple of grandchildren over the past few years, so I think she may have slowed down partly because of that too.

Whenever she is working steadily, people complain that she’s hogging all the roles for older actresses.

She’s the Beyoncé of film. She snaps up roles before anyone else can get them.

Good Lord, she’s playing Beyoncé? Now THAT could be a career killer.
