Um, did Meryl Streep throw some shade at Benedict Cumberbatch?!

The 64-year-old August: Osage County star appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, Jan. 15 and opened up about what it was like filming the family drama in Bartlesville, OK.

"Well, it was my idea that we all live together in a condo village behind the Toyota dealership," the Oscar nominee explained to Jimmy Kimmel. "This went over really well with some of the members of the cast."

The actress then revealed that Margo Martindale, Abigail Breslin, Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper, Ewan McGregor and Dermot Mulroney all took part in this unique living situation. One name was noticeably missing from the star-studded crowd: the Sherlock star.

"Actually Benedict Cumberbatch was in a special hotel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, which is in the center of Bartlesville," Streep said with a slight air of disapproval with his choice of lodging while on location. And name-dropping the famous architect.

"Well, when your name's Benedict Cumberbatch, you can't stay in a condominium," Kimmel quickly responded.

"You can't cumberbatch down to where we are, no," Streep quipped.

Zing! And Streep used the British thesp's last name as a verb.
