It appears that Streep and Roberts have struck up quite a friendship since they appeared together in their latest film “August: Osage County,” where they play mother and daughter.

The actresses posed together for photographs in the arrivals area at the awards, literally arms around each other – both donning their dark glasses and offering up smiles for the camera…

Ms Roberts wore a stunning black and white Juan Carlos Obando gown, accessorizing with Dana Rebecca Designs earrings and a Barbara Bui clutch bag, while Ms Streep chose a blue and black Stella McCartney dress for the occasion. Salvatore Ferragamo pumps, Christian Louboutin clutch bag and Jorge Adeler earrings completed the look.

Get ready for some serious name-dropping as Julia and Meryl were joined on the red carpet by Cate Blanchett in black, Jessica Chastain in jade green, Emma Thompson (with daughter Gaia Romilly Wise), Danneel Ackles (in a gorgeous cobalt blue strapless dress), Sarah Belcher, Christina Applegate (with husband Martyn LeNoble), Kristen Bell, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Margot Robbie, Amy Adams, Annabelle Wallis, Sandra Bullock, Juliette Lewis and Oprah Winfrey.
