Meryl Streep will be honored for her film industry achievements at the 25th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival this January.

The Oscar winner will take home the Icon Award at the festival’s awards gala.

The Icon Award honors a creative talent who, through the course of his or her career, has created a body of work which symbolizes the highest level of achievement in the motion picture art form.

The Cartier-presented gala will take place on Jan. 4 at the Palm Springs Convention Center; the festival itself runs from Jan 3-13, 2014.

Says Festival Chairman Harold Matzner of Streep’s award: “We’re overjoyed to recognize Meryl Streep for yet another Oscar-worthy performance in August: Osage County. Meryl Streep’s portrayal of Violet Weston, the matriarch of a dysfunctional family reunited by a tragic incident, will be remembered in her long list of iconic character roles.  The Palm Springs International Film Festival is honored to present the 2014 Icon Award to Meryl Streep.”
