Yesterday, Meryl received the Icon Award at the 25th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival. “I feel like I’m an example now in my dotage that you can’t put those old gals out to pasture – we’ve got a lot to say,” the August: Osage County actress quipped. Streep’s co-star from August: Osage County Julia Roberts was also honoured, collecting the Spotlight Award as well as presenting a gong to her friend Tom Hanks, who took home the Chairman’s Award. Over 140 pictures from the arrivals, the ceremony and the press room have been added to the image library. Edit: Additional pictures from the arrivals and ceremony are up, with many thanks to my friend Lindsey.

A video clip of Meryl accepting the award, which was presented by fellow “August: Osage County” co-star Margo Martindale, has been added to the video archive as well. Unfortunately the end of the video is cut off, but you get plenty of funny lines in the acceptance speech nevertheless. As she told the crowd, to much laughter, “I don’t feel like an icon. Most of the days I feel like “I can’t”. That’s with an “a”.

    Meryl looks so very happy in all the pics! The one where she receives the watch is great! To still be in progress after more than 30 years in the movie business and even more so just continue to surprise us with interesting characters is really rare, and a blessing for us! She if anyone deserves ‘the icon’ even if she doesn’t like the idea of being one :-)
