Meryl has attended two events this week and the last. She was a guest at the FAPE Dinner at the U.S. Department of State on May 07. And yesterday, she joined Phaidon (who recently published the book “Meryl Streep: Anatomy of an Actor“) for the book launch of “Bruce Nauman: The True Artist”. Pictures from both events can be found in the image library.

Just in time for the world-premiere of “The Homesman” at the Cannes Film Festival, a first batch of clips have been released, one of them including a scene with Meryl (which, I guess, is a great deal of her screen time already). In the scene, Altha Carter (Meryl Streep) gives shelter to George Briggs (Tommy Lee Jones) and the three women (Miranda Otto, Sonja Richter, Grace Gummer) he has escorted. Additionally, four more clips have been added to the archives: Meryl’s speech at the Women’s Refugee Commission back on May 01, her very odd opening number with Joe Grifasi for Lewis Black’s Cystic Fibrosis Fundraiser and a narration video she did for the N.Y. Summer Tourism campaign. Then, the “Sophie’s Choice” roundtable interview have been updated with more excerpts. More information and pictures on “The Homesman” will follow this weekend. For now, enjoy the clips. Many thanks to Michael and Juha for the heads-up.

On May 01, Meryl Streep attended the Women’s Refugee Commission 25th Anniversary Voices Of Courage Awards luncheon as a guest speaker. Held at New York’s famed Cipriani restaurant, the event honoured three remarkable former refugees: Liberian Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Leymah Gbowee, Sierra Leone’s Chernor Bah and Mary Tal from Cameroon. Pictures from the event can be found in the image library with more information, and additional gallery updates, below. Edit: Additional pictures from the Voices of Courage Awards have been added, plus a picture from last week’s Poetry & the Creative Mind with thanks to Joan for the heads-up.


Meryl took the time to pose on arrival with peace activist and one of the event’s honorees, Leymah Gbowee, as well as Women’s Refugee Commission board member Jocelyn Cunningham. The Women’s Refugee Commission is a research and advocacy organisation which aims improve the lives and protect the rights of women, children and youth displaced by war, persecution and natural disasters. Alongside the new additions, pictures from previous events have been uploaded as well. Many thanks for Claudia for sending in some of the Monte Christo Award additions.

Meryl Streep and Neil Young will help pay tribute to Hollywood heavyweight Jonathan Demme at The Jacob Burns Film Center (JBFC) in Pleasantville on June 14. Streep will present the JBFC Vision Award to the legendary director of films including “Philadelphia” and “The Silence of the Lambs.” The Westchester resident will not only be recognized for his Oscar-winning work, he will also be celebrated for his ongoing involvement with the nonprofit cultural arts center. “Whether working with students at the Media Arts Lab, mentoring our faculty and staff, hosting our monthly Rarely Seen Cinema series, or serving on the JBFC Board of Directors, Jonathan’s impact on the Burns has been nothing short of transformative,” the center said in its announcement. “We are joyful and grateful for this opportunity to publicly thank and celebrate Jonathan for his many contributions to the JBFC and world of cinema.” Neil Young and other special guests will also participate in the tribute, which will be part of the Jacob Burns Film Center’s 2014 Anniversary Celebration. The event, including a cocktail reception and seated dinner, will benefit the center’s film, education and outreach programs. To learn more about invitations and tickets, visit the Jacob Burns website. Many thanks to Glenn and Frank for the heads-up.

Three new video clips have been added to the video archive. There’s a compilation of news reports on Meryl receiving the Monte Christo Award by the Eugene O’Neil Theatre Center. Then, a report on the Indiana University Honorary Degree. The third clip is an excerpt from the 30th Anniversary roundtable discussion on “Sophie’s Choice”, which will be featured on the film’s Blu-Ray, out on April 29 in the USA.
