Barbra Streisand gets Chaplin Award

Film Society to present 40th annual award this spring

Barbra Streisand will take home the 40th annual Chaplin Award from Film Society of Lincoln Center.

FSLC’s annual award, which honors extraordinary careers in film, goes to Streisand for a body of work that includes “Yentl,” the 1983 pic that marked the first time a woman was credited on a single film as scribe, helmer, producer and actor. She scored a lead actress Oscar for “Funny Girl,” her 1968 movie debut, and later took home the original song trophy for “A Star in Born” in 1976.

Along with “Yentl,” she also helmed “The Prince of Tides” and “The Mirror has Two Faces,” and as an actress she’s starred in movies including “Hello Dolly,” “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever” and, most recently, “The Guilt Trip.”

Prior editions of the Chaplin award have gone to Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, Meryl Streep and, most recently, Catherine Deneuve.

Awards gala in Gotham will include celebs honoring Streisand as well as movie and interview clips leading up to the presentation of the kudo. Event is set for April 22 at Lincoln Center.
