Lily Tomlin and Meryl Streep, who play sisters in Robert Altman’s upcoming comedy “A Prairie Home Companion”, have taken the stage at the 78th Academy Awards to present their director with his Lifetime Achievement Oscar. Both actresses did a masterly, breathless impression of a film by special honoree Robert Altman, replete with overlapping dialogue, half-finished thoughts and constant interruptions, a double virtuoso performance.
