Academy Award–winning actor Helen Mirren will be honored at the 45th Chaplin Award Gala on Monday, April 30, 2018. 

Mirren has bestowed upon the world a series of iconic performances on stage, screen and television in a career spanning more than fifty years. The annual event will be attended by a host of notable guests and presenters and will include movie and interview clips, culminating in the presentation of the Chaplin Award.

“Ever since her debut in Michael Powell’s Age of Consent in 1969, Helen Mirren has been lighting up screens with one finely crafted performance after another,” said Lesli Klainberg, the Executive Director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center.From her Oscar-winning role in The Queen to her brilliant work in The Long Good Friday, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover, The Madness of King George, Gosford Park, The Tempest, The Last Station, Red, Hitchcock, Woman in Gold, and Eye in the Sky, she has shown her exquisite range and proven her commitment to excellence and the art of cinema.

Mirren began acting with the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1967, and over the past five decades has become one of the most respected and recognizable figures in multiple media. In film, she is perhaps best known for The Queen, though she has appeared in more than sixty films, with notable recent titles including Trumbo and The Fate of the Furious. 

Upcoming films include The Leisure Seeker, Winchester, and The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. 

In television she is best known for her role as DCI Jane Tennison in Prime Suspect, her Emmy-winning performance in Elizabeth I, and Phil Spector, for which she won Best Actress at the SAG Awards. 

On stage, she reprised her role as Queen Elizabeth II on the West End stage and on Broadway in The Audience to acclaimed reviews, winning both an Olivier Award and a Tony Award. Mirren was awarded the prestigious BAFTA Fellowship in 2014 for her outstanding career in film.


In 2006, The Queen was shown at the New York Film Festival. Here are some excerpts from the NYFF press conference, 
which included Helen Mirren and the Director, Stephen Frears.





QPORIT has also noted the appearances of Helen Mirren in the NYFF 2010 film of The Tempest where Julie Taymor cast the wizard Prospero as Prospera, played by Helen Mirren; and as the Host on SNL in 2011, where QPORIT’s comments on the Opening Monolog and a sketch with Helen Mirren say …

"- Opening Monologue - Helen Mirren -- she's a dame -- (By the way, did you see her in the orgy scene in Caligula?)

- Helen Mirren's Titties & Helen Mirren in her Dressing Room --"Her titties exist in a place beyond space & time." -- What SNL was made for!"


The Film Society’s Annual Gala began in 1972 when it honored Charlie Chaplin, who returned to the U.S. from exile to accept the commendation. Since then, the award has been renamed for Chaplin, and has been presented to many of the film industry’s most notable talents, including Alfred Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, Laurence Olivier, Federico Fellini, Elizabeth Taylor, Bette Davis, James Stewart, Robert Altman, Martin Scorsese, Diane Keaton, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sidney Poitier, Barbra Streisand, Robert Redford, Morgan Freeman, and, last year, Robert De Niro.
