"You and all of us in this room, really, belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now," Meryl Streep told the audience during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night.  "Think about it — Hollywood, foreigners, and the press." 

Well, that last group has gotten a bit of help from the iconic actress's emotional speech.

The Committee to Protect Journalists received more than 1,000 donations totaling over $60,000 after Streep spoke about the need for a free press and name-checked the organization, according to The Poynter Institute.
