Five people received the honor posthumously. “We’ve got some extraordinary public servants on this stage,” Obama said before presenting the medals. “We also give thanks to innovators who change our world.” The president annually awards Medals of Freedom to people who have made contributions to society including in the areas of security, peace and culture. Of Meryl, President Obama said, “I love Meryl Streep. Her husband knows I love her. Michelle knows I love her. There’s nothing they can do about it.” A first batch of pictures from the ceremony can be found in the image library.
