Many thanks to Ilaria for submitting a transcript of Meryl’s speech after receiving the Golden Marc’Aurelio Acting Award at the Rome International Film Festival. Her few Italian lines have been translated into English for an easier reading. Thanks Ilaria!

Thank you, thank you so much… two microphones (laughs). Uulalala. I apologise for not speaking Italian as Helen Mirren but, Helen, (in response to Miss Mirren’s previous speech in which she mentioned inspiring Italian actresses) don’t forget Senta Berger, Giulietta Masina, Silvana Mangano and the madonna of all the actresses, Eleonora Duse, everyone italian!! I have to speak english. At this moment in my life after being an actress for… ok, 30 years, more than 30 years, having paid off all my students loans, all I feel is gratitude, really, that’s all I feel (applause). Because an actor is nothing but a listener and a talker, so we need the writer, we need the director, we need you, young writers and directors and producers, people who find the money, we need each other, other actors… so I’m not here by myself, I’m here with all the fantastic people who have led me by the hand to this moment, including my parents, my husband who made it possible to have this amazing career (applause) and all my friends living and gone… so thank you very much.

Added clips of Meryl’s various appearances at the Rome International Film Festival. The acceptance speech for the Golden Marc’Aurelio Award is unfortunately cut off, so if anyone has a full video or transcript (in English or Italian), any heads-up are appreciated. Enjoy the clips!

To wrap up the 4th edition of the Rome International Film Festival, pictures of Meryl at yesterday’s official awards ceremony have been added to the Image Library. She once again took the stage to receive the Marc’ Aurelio Acting Award. The Danish film “Brotherhood” won the Best Picture prize, Sergio Castellitto was voted Best Actor for “Alza La Testa”. And British actress Helen Mirren was voted Best Actress for “The Last Station” (some may remember that Meryl was originally cast in this role but left due to schedule conflicts).  Enjoy the pictures!

Yesterday, Meryl Streep and Kevin Kline lead the cast of “Courage in Concert” – a benefit performance of music from Brecht’s Mother Courage and Her Children. Joining principal cast members Jenifer Lewis, Austin Pendleton and Frederick Weller for the benefit were the cast members from the Tony-winning revival of Hair as well as Daniel Craig, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Linda Emond and Mike Nichols. The evening served as a benefit for the American Jewish World Service and Partners In Health, both of which aim to improve the well-being of people in impoverished communities around the world. Pictures can be found in the Image Library.
