Meryl Streep wins Icon Award

Meryl Streep Meryl Streep collected an Icon Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Saturday night. The awards were the first of the New Year but are a more low-key event than the glitzy ceremonies which follow, with winners announced in advance, lending a more relaxed atmosphere to other events. Picking up her trophy - only the second Icon Award given by the festival in its 25 year history - Meryl told the crowd: ''My four children remind me everyday that I am not an Icon. I don't feel like an icon. Most of the days I feel like 'I can't.' [But] I feel like I'm an example now in my dotage of the fact that you just can't put those old gals out to pasture. We've got a lot of stuff still to say.'' Other stars to be awarded at the event included Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts, Matthew McConaughey, 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen and the cast of American Hustle.
