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!
Actress Hilary Swank has won two Oscars for her performances in “Boys Don’t Cry” and “Million Dollar Baby” and is most certainly entering this year’s awards season with her performance as Amelia Earhart. In an interview with Moviefone, she was asked about her acting rolemodels.
You’ve had a pretty amazing career, but is there anyone’s career that you look to as an inspiration?
It’s probably cliché at this point, but Meryl Streep is someone who not only continues to raise her own bar, and she’s time and time again extraordinary … she carries herself with such grace and she’s a girl’s girl, she’s very supportive of other women, and her work ethic is inspiring. She runs the gamut of doing dramatic and mainstream movies. You know, she fluctuates back and forth so easily and fluently. We’re entertainers, and that’s what a full career is supposed to be filled with, so I think she’s just extraordinary in every way.
Today, Meryl was honored with the Marcus Aurelius award at the Rome International Film Festival. Pictures from the ceremony, as well as additional pictures from the “Julie & Julia” premiere and the “Meryl Streep Masterclass” interview session that took place right after the premiere, have been added to the Image Library. Meryl has also attended the festival’s awards ceremony a couple of hours ago, so check back for more!
