Perhaps more than any other recipient, with Shirley I would underline the word life in Life Achievement Award,” he said. “Hers is a story more than just movies. It’s an epic journey, and she has invited all of us to come along for the ride.” “It is sure to be a magical evening celebrating Shirley’s career, especially with Meryl Streep and many other stars who will be on hand,” remarked Larry W.

Meryl Streep sat down with CBS’ Morley Safer for a rare interview to be broadcast on “60 Minutes” Sunday, Dec. 18 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT. “I don’t like to go over things,” she tells Safer, “and over and over and over…and over and over again….I guess I have less tolerance for it. I like movies that have a little budget and so they can’t do [scenes over and over],” says Streep, who has another pet peeve: films increasingly being aimed at younger, less intellectual audiences. “That’s called the narrowing of the audience,” says Streep. Click below for an excerpt from the interview:

“The movie business has worked very assiduously to discourage you and other intelligent, discerning people from the…movie theater. They have worked hard to get rid of you because you don’t go then and buy toys and games.” What’s better today is the acting says Streep. “I think the acting is better than in the classic days.” In Streep’s next film, “Iron Lady,” she plays a classic character in Britain’s famous Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. “I am in awe of what she did. The policies you can argue with, but to sit in that hot seat,” she says, “I can’t even imagine having that steadfastness.” Reminded by Safer that the former world leader was also self-assured and very confident that her way was the right way, Streep replies “Oh yes…I have a lot of that,” she tells Safer. So was playing Thatcher typecasting? “A little bit,” says Streep.

Many thanks to John for sharing this: Academy Award winner Meryl Streep and Pulitzer Prize winner N. Scott Momaday have contributed their considerable talents to Sky Island, a new film on Bandelier National Monument and the Jemez Mountains. The film was written, produced and directed by environmental filmmaker John Grabowska. Participation in the film production was, in a way, a health issue for Streep, relating to open spaces and wild places: “Our personal health depends on the health of the environment,” she said. “Preserving national parks and wildlands is an exercise in long-term thinking about the sustainability of the planet, and it directly impacts each one of us. I hope viewers are inspired by the mood and method of Sky Island. I know I was which is why I wanted to be a part of it.” “It’s such a pleasure to work with artists who are the best in their field,” Grabowska said. “Meryl is charming and down to earth but very dedicated to getting the performance exactly right, even for – or perhaps especially for – a project like this, which addresses dramatic climate change effects in Bandelier and the Jemez. Sky Island is currently on the film festival circuit and will air on PBS in 2011.
