An emotional Meryl Streep received a standing ovation as she took the sage to accept the annual Cecil B. DeMille Award at Sunday night's Golden Globes, and called out Donald Trump in a wide-ranging speech.

"You and all of us in this room belong to the most vilified segments of America right now: Hollywood, foreigners and the press," she said as the crowd broke out in applause.

Viola Davis, who won for best supporting actress award tonight for her permanence in "Fences," presented the award to her "Doubt" costar.

"You are a muse" Dame Streep, she said. "You make me proud to be an artist. You make me feel like what I have in me -- my body, my face, my age -- is enough."

Streep seemed an obvious recipient for the honor, as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has long been a fan of her work. In 2009, she became the most-nominated actor at the awards show, and now boasts 30 Globes nods, her most recent being for "Florence Foster Jenkins" this year.

There's even been a couple of years in which Streep has played double-duty on nominations: in 2009 (for "Doubt" and "Mamma Mia!") and again in 2010 (for "It's Complicated" and "Julie & Julia," which she won).

Past recipients of the Cecil B. DeMille Award include Denzel Washington, George Clooney, Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Morgan Freeman, Robert De Niro, and Steven Spielberg.
