We attended a gala tribute to MERYL STREEP earlier this evening at the Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center. The Film Society of Lincoln Center honored the remarkable career of Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep with selected film montages and onstage salutes by friends and colleagues including Robert Redford, Robert De Niro, Mike Nichols, Uma Thurman, Stanley Tucci, Christopher Walken and Amy Adams. Probably two of the most applauded movie clips were from the movie SOPHIE'S CHOICE, and the highly anticipated MAMMA MIA where Streep sings ABBA's "The Winner Takes It All." The highlight of course was Ms. Streep's funny and wonderful acceptance speech at the end of the show.
Proceeds from the Gala Tribute will support the Film Society’s annual programs including the New York Film Festival, New Directors/New Films, Film Comment magazine as well as year-round programming at the Walter Reade Theater.
