This September, the ever-marvelous Meryl Streep is set to receive the Toronto Film Festival’s TIFF Tribute Actor Award at the inaugural TIFF Tribute Gala event. The actress, who has won three Oscars and been nominated 21 times, will be at the festival promoting Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming The Laundromat.
“Meryl Streep is undoubtedly one of the most talented and versatile actors of her generation,” said TIFF co-head Joana Vicente. “Her tremendous contribution to cinema, television, and the stage spans five decades; from her early roles in ‘The Deer Hunter,’ ‘Kramer vs. Kramer’ and ‘Sophie’s Choice’ to later films including ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’ ‘The Iron Lady’ and ‘The Post,’ she has portrayed characters that are as compelling as they are timeless. TIFF could not be more thrilled to honor such a skilled and exemplary artist.”
