Streep will reportedly be receiving this honorary award on the opening night of the Cannes Film Festival. This honorary tribute to Meryl Streep marks her long-awaited return to Cannes after decades. The last time she went to the festival dates back to Fred Schepisi’s “Evil Angels a Cry in the Dark” for which she won best actress in 1989.

“I am immeasurably honored to receive the news of this prestigious award,” Streep said.

“To win a prize at Cannes, for the international community of artists, has always represented the highest achievement in the art of filmmaking. To stand in the shadow of those who have previously been honoured is humbling and thrilling in equal part.

“I so look forward to coming to France to thank everyone in person this May!”
