The Academy Museum Gala, which had been postponed last month in the wake of Hamas’ attack on Israel, has been rescheduled for December 3. According to Deadline, the annual fundraiser, which this year will bestow honors on Meryl Streep, Michael B. Jordan, Oprah Winfrey and Sofia Coppola, was originally scheduled for October 28. After the attack on Israel, gala organizers first canceled the pre-event red carpet then eventually postponed the entire event “out of respect for the devastating conflict and loss of life happening overseas,” they said at the time. The event is now moving forward with the now-escalated Israel-Hamas war top of mind, we hear. The gala aims to raise funds to support museum exhibitions, education initiatives, and public programming including screenings, K-12 programs, and access initiatives in service of the general public and the Los Angeles community.
Here’s another fantastic find for the archives. In the September 28, 1981, programme of “Film 81 with Barry Norman”, the BBC took us behind the scenes of “The French Lieutenant’s Woman”, which was released in the United Kingdom the following month. Besides some amazing footage from the filming, the segment also featured interviews with Karel Reisz and Jeremy Irons on the set, both reminiscing on working with “America’s greatest new star” Meryl Streep – as well as an interview with Meryl herself, conducted in London for the film’s release. The entire programme can be found in the video archive. Screencaptures have been added to the photo archive.
Congratulations to Meryl Streep for receiving her – hold your breath, seventh Grammy nomination – for her narration of the audiobook “Big Tree”, based on Brian Selznick’s novel. The fate of all life on Earth may depend on the bravery of two little sibling seeds, Louise and Merwin, as they try to save the world while searching for a safe place to grow. But when a fire forces them to leave their mama tree prematurely, they find themselves catapulted into the unknown, far from home. Alone and unprepared, they must use their wits and imagination to navigate a dangerous world – filled with dinosaurs, meteors, and volcanoes – and the fear of never finding a safe place to grow up. Throughout her career, Meryl Streep has received Grammy nominations for narrating the children’s albums “The Velveteen Rabbit”, “The Tale Of Peter Rabbit”, “The Tailor Of Gloucester”, “The One And Only Shrek” and “Charlotte’s Web” as well as for her participation on the “Mamma Mia!” soundtrack. She has yet to win her first Grammy, so let’s check back when the award is handed out February 04, 2024. Many thanks to Glenn for the heads-up.
A couple of few, but rare production stills have been added to the archives. The oldest find comes from the 1975 National Playwrights Conference rehearsal for “Dead and Never Called Me Mother”. There’s also a wonderful on-set picture from the filming of “Ironweed”, showing Streep and Nicholson out of character with author William Kennedy and his wife. The most recent find is a fantastic promotional still of Dee Dee Allen from “The Prom”. Enjoy the new editions and have a nice weekend everybody.

On we go with a second batch of updates from Spain’s Princesa de Asturias Awards. Meryl Streep was honored yesterday for her achievement in film with attendances at an awards photocall and, of course, the ceremony. The day before, she attended the awards’ annual concert as well. Pictures from all remaining appearances have been added to the photo gallery. Next up will be video clips from the ceremonies and the numerous conversation panels from earlier this week. Enjoy.
Meryl Streep has spent the week in Spain as a recipient of the 2023 Princesa de Asturias Awards, which will be handed out today. But Streep was in full demand these past few days with an array of conversation panels and surprise visits. She was joined by fellow actor (and two-time co-star) Antonio Banderas for a conversation panel about her career, and also attended a meeting with students at the La Fabrica de Armas cultural center in Oviedo. Yesterday, she paid a visit to the Superior School of Dramatic Arts in Gijon. Pictures from all appearances have been added to the photo gallery, with many thanks to Glenn for all the heads-up. Updates from the awards ceremony and videos will follow this weekend.
The star-studded Hollywood fund-raiser, which had already been complicated by the actors’ strike, was to have honored Meryl Streep and others on Saturday. According to The New York Times, it’s hard not to see the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures’s attempt to put on this year’s gala – a glamorous party that raises more than $10 million for the museum and burnishes its image by drawing Hollywood A-listers – as anything but ill-fated. First the Hollywood strikes complicated efforts to hold the party, since striking actors are barred from promoting films and few would want to rub elbows socially with executives from the big studios that they are on strike against. That difficulty was ironed out after studio executives, who are among the museum’s biggest financial supporters, agreed not to come and union officials said actors could attend as long as they did not promote films. Then the Israel-Hamas war cast a shadow over the festivities, which had been scheduled for Saturday night. First the museum announced that the red carpet – where stars parade in their finery for photographers before going in – would be canceled. Then, on Thursday, the museum announced that the gala would be postponed. “Out of respect for the devastating conflict and loss of life happening overseas, we have made the decision to postpone the Academy Museum gala this Saturday,” the museum said in a statement on Thursday evening. “We look forward to rescheduling at a later date. We thank everybody deeply for their support.” The gala was to have honored Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey, Michael B. Jordan and Sofia Coppola. The chairs of the gala, which is raising money for exhibitions, education and public programs, are the director Ava DuVernay, the actor Halle Berry, the producer Ryan Murphy and the producer Eric Esrailian, a physician and a trustee. The museum through a spokeswoman said it had no further comment.
