Another awards season, another trail of accolades for the 17-time Oscar nominee and three-time winner. The Palm Springs International Film Festival said today that Meryl Streep has been tapped for its Icon Award, which “honors a creative talent who, through the course of his or her career, has created a body of work which symbolizes the highest level of achievement in the motion picture art form”. Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. Streep is on the awards radar again this year for her role as the matriarch of a Midwestern family in August: Osage County, director John Wells’ adaptation of the Pulitzer-winning play by Tracy Letts. The 25th edition of PSIFF runs January 3-13 in the desert city.
