Lincoln Center to Honor Meryl Streep#1
Posted: 10/15/07 at 7:34pm
Meryl Streep is about to collect another yet honor, this one from the Film Society of Lincoln Center. The Film Society announced its gala retrospective Sunday evening at the closing night festivities of the 45th annual New York Film Festival. The 58-year-old actress will be honored April 14 at Lincoln Center for the Film Society's 35th annual Gala Tribute.


"While her luminous on-screen presence is never less than dazzling, you always feel her keen intelligence and wit, her extraordinary level of insight," Gala Tribute Director Wendy Keys said in a statement Monday. "She truly embodies every character she plays."


The Film Society of Lincoln Center has annually paid tribute to major film figures since 1972, when it honored Charlie Chaplin. Other honorees have included Fred Astaire, Alfred Hitchcock, Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, Jane Fonda and, most recently, Diane Keaton.


Streep has won two Oscars (in 1980 for "Kramer vs. Kramer" and 1983 for "Sophie's Choice") and been nominated 12 other times, including earlier this year for her performance in "The Devil Wears Prada."

I absolutely worship Meryl Streep, even her bad movies, are good movies.
What I enjoy the most about her is not only that her acting is seamless but that her off-stage persona is so humble, smart, and fascinating that it's impossible not to be enthralled by her.

So she's being honored just for acting? Seems kind of foolish to me.

I think she's also being honored for discovering the cure for Relentless and Pointless Party Pooperism.

Check it out.
