The 25th Palm Springs International Film Festival is honoring three-time Oscar-winning actress Meryl Streep with its Icon Award. The actress, who won her Academy Awards for 1989’s “Kramer Vs. Kramer,” 1982’s “Sophie’s Choice” and 2011’s “The Iron Lady,” will receive the festival’s honor at its awards gala Jan. 4 at the Palm Springs Convention Center. Streep has already received lead actress nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Movie Awards for her performance as matriarch of a dysfunctional family in “August: Osage County,” which opens Dec. 27. “We’re overjoyed to recognize Meryl Streep for yet another Oscar-worthy performance in ‘August: Osage County,” festival chairman Harold Matzner said in a statement. Streep joins previously announced Palm Springs honorees Sandra Bullock, Bruce Dern, Tom Hanks, Matthew McConaughey, Steve McQueen, Thomas Newman, Lupita Nyong’o, Julia Roberts and the cast of “American Hustle.” Additionally, Meryl has been named Best Actress by the Nevada Film Critics Society for “August: Osage County”. Many thanks to Frank and Snafu for the heads-up.
