She was greeted by the city’s major at the Town Hall, attended a press junket as well as the Berlinale Talents conversation. Throughout the week, the festival will show “The Queen”, “The Good Liar”, “The Long Good Friday”, “The Last Station” and “The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and her Lover” to celebrate Helen Mirren’s legacy.

Yesterday, Helen Mirren made her first appearance for 2020 at the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Unfortunately, she didn’t win for “Catherine the Great” – the Golden Globe went to Olivia Colman for “The Crown”, so at least the awards stays in the “Queen” family. Nevertheless, Helen took the stage with Antonio Banderas to present the award for Best Director to fellow Brit Sam Mendes. Pictures from the arrivals, show and after-party have been added to the photo gallery. Two red carpet interviews from Access Hollywood and Entertainment Tonight have been added to the video archive as well.

According to the Berlin International Film Festival’s official website, Helen Mirren will receive a lifetime achievement honor at the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival, the festival announced Wednesday. Mirren, who won the best actress Oscar and Golden Globe in 2007 for her performance as Queen Elizabeth II in Stephen Frears’ The Queen, will attend Berlin to receive her award Feb. 27, 2020. In addition, Berlin will screen a retrospective of Mirren’s films, including The Queen, The Long Good Friday (1980), The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover (1989), The Last Station (2009) and The Good Liar (2019). “Helen Mirren is a strong personality whose powerful portrayals are always impressive. She surprises us time and again with her interpretation of complex characters — whether it’s Chris in Calendar Girls or Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen, her portrayals are a paradigm of strong women, and it is our great pleasure to award her the Honorary Golden Bear for her lifetime achievement,” said Mariette Rissenbeek, executive director of the Berlinale. In addition to her film work — which has included Hollywood action franchises RED and The Fast and the Furious — Mirren is one of Britain’s most acclaimed theater actress and has won numerous honors for her stage performances, including Olivier, Tony and Drama Desk Awards. In 2003, she was awarded the title of Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for her services to drama.

While “The Good Liar” received a rather lukewarm recognition from critics and moviegoers alike, it’s difficult to say how – or if – Helen Mirren will be recognized by award juries during the upcoming awards season. I’d say that, despite maybe a surprise nomination at the Golden Globes, there won’t be enough steam or campaigning for the film and Mirren’s performance to be part of the circus. AARP has raised the curtain on the nominations for its 19th annual Movies for Grownups Awards, with Netflix’s “The Two Popes” leading with seven mentions, followed by the streamer’s “The Irishman” and Sony’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” with six each. Helen Mirren has received a nomination as Best Actress. The AARP also set Tony Danza to host the January 11 ceremony at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills. Earlier this month, the group set Annette Bening to receive its AARP Movies for Grownups Career Achievement Award.
