Meryl Streep


"The Devil Wears Prada" star will receive the prize at the Film Society's 35th annual Gala Tribute held on April 14, 2008.

Another prestigious prize is about to go into the hands of Meryl Streep. The Film Society of Lincoln Center has announced that it will present the Oscar winner with an honor on April 14, 2008 as part of the Film Society's 35th annual Gala Tribute at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall.

The special occasion will put weights on her remarkable career in film industry with selected movies highlights, onstage salutes by friends and colleagues, plus personal remarks by the actress herself. Streep, a native of Summit, New Jersey, has collected two Academy Awards so far and been nominated twelve other times, including earlier this year through "The Devil Wears Prada."

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

The Film Society, established in 1969, has annually bestowed the honor to major figures in film-making since 1972, during which Charlie Chaplin was the recipient. Names like Alfred Hitchcock, Clint Eastwood, and Martin Scorsese also took the kudos with the most recent one being Diane Keaton.
