Streep Awarded Afi Lifetime Honour

OSCAR-winning actress MERYL STREEP is to be presented with the AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE's highest honour next year (04) - the lifetime achievement award.

THE HOURS star - who has won two ACADEMY AWARDS for her roles in SOPHIE'S CHOICE and KRAMER VS KRAMER and been nominated for eleven more - was delighted to receive the accolade.

She told reporters, "I am honoured to be selected by the AFI for the work I love doing - the event is in June and that might give me enough time to compose a list of all the people I'm beholden to in my life and to whom I owe everything."

The presentation will take place at a glitzy ceremony next June (04) where the AFI will induct Streep into the company of previous recipients ALFRED HITCHCOCK, ELIZABETH TAYLOR, JACK NICHOLSON and ROBERT DE NIRO.
