The galleries for all recent Kennedy Center events have been uploaded with additional pictures.


Nora Ephron, whom Streep portrayed in the film “Heartburn,” praised the actress’ portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in the upcoming film “The Iron Lady” and warned Secretary Clinton that she would be next. “It’s inevitable,” Ephron said. “Someday you will see her in a movie about your life and discover the truth that she is better at being you than you are.” Amid all the accolades and praise, Streep, 62, who has received 16 Academy Award nominations, winning twice, quipped that events made her “feel a little like Tom Sawyer going to his own funeral.”

Tracey Ullman, first up to honor Streep, said there’s something special about the actress. “Looking around, I see Caroline Kennedy, first lady Michelle Obama, the president … an illustrious group to be sure, but with no disrespect to you guys, we have Meryl-bloody-Streep in the room!” And the laughs continued: After the audience watched a video with highlights from Streep’s film career, 2009 honoree De Niro said, “My first thought was, I was amazing in Deer Hunter.” Then he got serious and said, “Meryl, you are the very best. … I love you.” It was a reunion of The Devil Wears Prada cast – which starred Streep as a fashion editor – when Hathaway, Stanley Tucci and Emily Blunt took to the stage. “In every scene, she’s actually doing at least two jobs,” said Blunt. “First, her own character, who is always so complete, so natural, you forget that somewhere in there is Meryl Streep. Then the second is stabilizing the other actor who is having a nervous breakdown because they’re in a scene with Meryl Streep.” Tucci, who also starred as Streep’s character’s husband when she took on the role of Julia Child in Julie & Julia, shared a special requirement of his: “The only thing I want in every scene I’m in is … Meryl Streep.” Below is a compilation from last night’s event with footage from the reception as well as the red carpet and ceremony.

Pictures can be found in the image library.

According to the president’s speech, “The sheer brilliance and breadth of Meryl Streep’s performances count as one of the most exhilarating cultural spectacles of our time.” Others attending Sunday’s events included actors Stanley Tucci, Robert DeNiro, Sarah Jessica Parker and Emily Blunt, and musician Smokey Robinson. A two-hour recap of the gala will air the night of December 27 on CBS.

Yesterday, Meryl Streep attended a screening for “The Iron Lady” in Washington D.C. Pictures can be found in the image library, a video interview can be seen here. The next event will take place tonight as Meryl is also set to attend the 21st Annual A Magical Evening Gala.

USA Today has posted an article on the screening: As a warm-up to her upcoming appearance in town as a Kennedy Center honoree this weekend, Meryl Streep swept into Washington, D.C., Tuesday night to show off her latest bid to add a third Oscar to her collection. Namely, her miraculous transformation into Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s first and only female prime minister, in The Iron Lady. The bespectacled Streep was also accepting congratulations on her latest trophy, a best-actress award announced earlier in the day by the New York Film Critics Circle. She seemed genuinely surprised that she was picked by the respected group – “They’re so snobby!” – even though she has been a recipient three times before. “This is not a biopic,” the actress warned the packed audience before the feature directed by her Mamma Mia! maestro Phyllida Lloyd began. Instead, The Iron Lady presents an older Thatcher as she flashbacks to the highs and lows of her career while staving off dementia. “It’s a subjective look back,” Streep explained. As close to the truth as fiction will allow.” Streep then hoisted her pocketbook, comparing it to Thatcher’s sizable handbags “that used to terrorize her opponents.” She plucked out a couple pieces of paper and, much as Thatcher was wont to do, quoted words of wisdom from two other former prime ministers. First up, Lord Salisbury: “Many who think they are workers in politics are really merely tools” – an observation that earned several hearty chuckles. And then Benjamin Disraeli: “Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for truth.”
