For the past 6 decades, Helen Mirren's career has successfully shifted from a respected theatre actress to an iconic fixture on British television to a beloved Hollywood star. Her celebrated range of work has earned her an Academy Award, Tony Award and numerous Emmys and Baftas.

Yesterday, Helen Mirren took the stage in Hamburg, Germany, to accept the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Goldene Kamera, Germany’s biggest honor for film, television, music and culture. This appearance was a bit of a surprise since I didn’t know she was announced as a recipient, so even better to see so many new pictures. Plus, the complete segment of her honor (introduced by German “Trumbo” co-star Christian Berkel, who played Otto Preminger) can be watched in the video archive. The speech, which has been dubbed in German but is still possible to be heard, featured some wonderful remarks on being an emigrant herself and thanking her German dubbing voice for giving half her performance.

Sad news today, apart from the Academy Awards nominations. Alan Rickman has died in London after losing a cancer battle at the age of 69. The British actor, known for his role as Professor Snape in the Harry Potter films, died surrounded by friends and relatives. A statement from his family read: “The actor and director Alan Rickman has died from cancer at the age of 69. He was surrounded by family and friends.” Rickman played iconic roles in films including Die Hard, Robin Hood and Love Actually. The star was a long-standing member of the Royal Shakespeare Company and has won a number of awards including a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, an Emmy and a Screen Actors Guild Award. In 1998, Rickman and Helen Mirren performed Antony and Cleopatra at the National Theatre. Helen’s upcoming film “Eye in the Sky”, out on March 11, now has the sad distinction of being Alan Rickman’s last project. Entertainment Tonight has released a statement by Helen Mirren on Alan Rickman’s passing:

Alan was a towering person, physically, mentally and as an artist. He was utterly distinctive, with a voice that could suggest honey or a hidden stiletto blade, and the profile of a Roman Emperor. He was also a great friend, generous and social. He will be very missed by many. (Helen Mirren)
