The Genesis Prize Foundation announced yesterday that Helen Mirren will host the ceremony on June 23 in Israel, honoring Itzhak Perlman, acclaimed violinist, educator, and champion of individuals with disabilities. The Genesis Prize, a yearly $1 million award to an extraordinary individual who has achieved great professional, philanthropic, and cultural success, will be presented to Perlman by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Now in its third year, the prize, dubbed the “Jewish Nobel” has been awarded to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg (2014) and Academy Award-winning actor Michael Douglas (2015). While winning the prize is a lofty accomplishment in itself, the fact that the proceedings will be emceed by Dame Helen Mirren can be nothing but music to Perlman’s ears. “We are honored that Dame Helen Mirren, an actress of such talent and accomplishment, will host the 2016 Genesis Prize ceremony and help us celebrate the extraordinary life and achievements of Itzhak Perlman,” said Stan Polovets, cofounder and chairman of the Genesis Prize Foundation. “Dame Mirren has been an outspoken supporter of Israel, and we look forward to the elegance and grace she will bring to the ceremony.”

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.
