You would think that with 16 Academy Award nominations (2 wins), 26 Golden Globe nominations (7 wins), 2 Emmy Awards, 2 Screen Actors Guild Awards, a Cannes Film Festival award, 5 New York Film Critics Circle Awards, 5 Grammy Award nominations, a BAFTA award, an Australian Film Institute Award, a Tony Award nomination and an AFI Life Achievement Award, Meryl Streep has enough statues, ribbons and certificates to last a lifetime. But apparently not. This awards season continues to see more praise showered upon the legendary actress, who recently added a Kennedy Center Honor to her list of achievements (you can watch that video below).

The Berlin Film Festival has announced it will give the actress an Honorary Golden Bear for Lifetime Achievement and will run a retrospective of her films. The selected movies include: "Kramer Vs. Kramer" (winning Best Supporting Actress), "Sophie's Choice" (winning Best Actress), "Out Of Africa",  "The Bridges Of Madison County," "A Prairie Home Companion" and "The Iron Lady."

The festival runs from February 9th to 19th, with the ceremony for Streep taking place on Valentine's Day.
