Streep receives honorary Palme d'Or in Cannes

Meryl was on hand at the 77th Cannes Film Festival earlier today to receive an honorary Palme d'Or.


She's looking amazing at the photo call in her white suit. Later on the red carpet...

French actress Juliette Binoche then presented Meryl with the award. 

It was so touching how emotional Juliette got when giving her speech. It's always interesting to me when learning of other actors who have been so impacted by Meryl's work and artistry. I feel that's a big testament to the quality of Meryls work: the fact that top-notch actors often revere her or single her out as the best. There are few better measures of how good someone is at their profession that polling others who do it (especially those who do it well), and those people say "this person" is great. 

I like that Meryl commented something to the effect of "It's nice to see that you're not sick of seeing my face." Of course my brain always goes to hoping that we'll get to see her in more and more projects. There's no question in my mind that there's an adoring audience for it. Maybe this is all part of sort of whetting the public's appetite for seeing her in something great. And hopefully soon. Is it too much to hope that she's able to do some really good networking while in France? 

Regardless, congratulations Meryl!
