The Costume Designers Guild has selected Jeffrey Kurland for its career achievement award and Meryl Streep for its distinguished collaborator award.

Salvador Perez, president of the guild said, “Jeffrey Kurland and Meryl Streep’s contributions to our industry are immense. As leaders of their respective crafts, their work has influenced and entertained us for decades and continues to do so. We are thrilled to be honoring them both this year.”

Kurland has been the costume designer on 15 of Woody Allen’s films. He received a BAFTA Award for his designs for “Radio Days” and an Academy Award nomination for his work on “Bullets Over Broadway.” Kurland was awarded the Costume Designers Guild award for his designs for “Erin Brockovich” and CDGA nominations for his work on “Ocean’s 11” and “Inception.”

Kurland sits on the board of governors at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and is currently the first VP of AMPAS. For the past eight years he has created and produced the Governors Ball for the Oscar ceremony.

Streep has won Academy Awards for “Kramer vs. Kramer,” “Sophie’s Choice” and “The Iron Lady.” She received a record 19th nomination last year for “Into the Woods.” Streep was most recently seen in Stephen Frears’ “Florence Foster Jenkins.”
