Meryl Streep has been announced the recipient of the 2023 Princess of Asturias Award for the Arts, a prestigious annual prize which this year reaches its 43rd edition. In recent decades, Streep has become, quite simply, the actress, a figure of worldwide prestige, especially on the big screen. “Over five decades, Meryl Streep has developed a brilliant career, stringing together performances in which she gives life to rich and complex female characters, which invite reflection and the formation of the viewer’s critical spirit,” said the jury of the Princess of Asturias Foundation, named after Spain’s heir to the throne, Princess Leonor, who will hand out the prizes to winners in the arts, sciences, humanities, and public affairs. The jurors also highlighted Streep’s“ honesty and responsibility in the choice of her works, in the service of inspiring and exemplary narratives,” as well as her commitment to being “a tireless activist for equality.” Meryl Streep has repsonded to the announcement, hinting an appearance in October to receive it in person:

I am very honored to receive this prestigious prize from one of the most deeply gifted countries and cultures in the world. My sincere thanks to Their Majesties and Her Royal Highness and I very much look forward to meeting them in October, and to spending time in their beautiful country.
