Lily Tomlin and Meryl Streep, who play sisters in Robert Altman’s upcoming comedy “A Prairie Home Companion”, have taken the stage at the 78th Academy Awards to present their director with his Lifetime Achievement Oscar. Both actresses did a masterly, breathless impression of a film by special honoree Robert Altman, replete with overlapping dialogue, half-finished thoughts and constant interruptions, a double virtuoso performance.

Meryl Streep and Marcia Gay Harden are featured in a documentary on Tony Kushner, directed by Freida Lee Mock, which is having its world-premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 20, 2006. Full synopsis and airdates can be found here: Perhaps the greatest compliment to Freida Lee Mock’s film is that she does justice to her brilliant subject, entwining interviews with leading theatre artists and personal moments from Kushner’s life with scenes from his plays. Watching Marcia Gay Harden as Laura Bush in a scene from one of Kushner’s lesser-known plays is worth the price of admission itself. Hearing Meryl Streep read a prayer that Kushner wrote asking–no, demanding–God to cure AIDS will tear your heart out.

Yet another festival release for “A Prairie Home Companion”: The 2006 South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Conference & Festival in Austin, TX will open on March 10th with the North American premiere of Robert Altman’s “A Prairie Home Companion,” organizers announced Monday. The festival will conclude on March 18th. “Prairie” was acquired by Picturehouse back in October and is described as a fictionalized look at preparations for what could be the final episode of Garrison Keillor’s legendary radio program, exploring the fallout over a big corporation buying the theater home of the weekly radio show. According to Picturehouse, “As passions erupt, secrets emerge and a mysterious stranger lurks in the shadows, the vigilant stage manger must hold it all together since the ‘show must go on’.” Set for a June release, the film was written by Altman and Keillor.

The Coolidge Award, given annually to film folks whose work ”advances the spirit of original and challenging cinema,” will be presented this year to Meryl Streep. Nominated for an Oscar a record 13 times, the actress is the third recipient of the award, following Chinese director Zhang Yimou in 2004 and Italian cinematographer Vittorio Storaro last year. Streep, whose latest film is an adaptation of Garrison Keillor’s radio show, ”A Prairie Home Companion,” will be in Boston to accept the award April 5-6. Susan Orlean, whose book ”The Orchid Thief” was the basis for the movie ”Adaptation,” in which Streep starred, said the actress isn’t typically interested in being celebrated. ”I’d e-mailed her and she reacted very favorably right away,” said Orlean, who’s on the Coolidge board. ”She can’t stand the rubber-chicken dinner thing where you’re treated like you’re dead. This is an interesting way to explore movies, and not some kind of creepy Jerry Lewis telethon.”
