Yesterday, Meryl Streep has attended the Kennedy Center Honors to pay tribute to honoree Sting. “He’s still unsatisfied… thinking, ‘What’s next? What’s left to discover?” Streep said. “In his search for his own truth, he whispers directly into our hearts”. It was a star-filled crowd, judging by these pictures, which show Meryl mingling with Bruce Springsteen, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Steven Spielberg, Sting and Melanie Griffith. Pictures from the ceremony and after-party have been added to the image library.
Last night, Meryl atended the 2014 Gotham Independent Film Awards to present the Special Jury Award for Ensemble Performance to Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo in the film Foxcatcher.

Suck on that!” Pictures from the ceremony can be found in the image library.
