Meryl Streep

Princess of Asturias Award for the Arts 2023

At its meeting in Oviedo, the Jury for the 2023 Princess of Asturias Award for the Arts, composed of Claude Bussac, María de Corral López-Dóriga, Josep Maria Flotats i Picas, Dionisio González Romero, Cayetana Guillén Cuervo, Sergio Gutiérrez Sánchez, Maribel López Zambrana, Antonio Lucas Herrero, Joan Matabosch Grifoll, Helena Pimenta Hernández, Sandra Rotondo Urcola, Martha Thorne, Rosa Torres-Pardo, Patricia Urquiola Hidalgo, Carlos Urroz Arancibia y Tadanori Yamaguchi, chaired by Miguel Zugaza Miranda and with Aarón Zapico Braña acting as secretary, unanimously agrees to confer the 2023 Princess of Asturias Award for the Arts on American actress Meryl Streep, for dignifying the art of acting and ensuring that ethics and coherence transcend through her work, with the virtue of emphasizing that human beings, and specifically women, must resound and attract attention on the basis of their uniqueness, of their being different.

Over five decades, Meryl Streep has built up a brilliant career of successive performances in which she brings life to richly complex female characters, which invite the viewer to reflect and form a critical spirit. The honesty and responsibility she brings to her choice of roles, at the service of inspiring and exemplary narratives, reach out beyond the screen and stage thanks to her impeccable acting technique, equipped only with gestures, voice and gaze. A tireless activist for equality, with her talent and attention to detail, she has allowed different generations to enjoy unforgettable performances, gaining the respect that this great art form deserves.
