After previously announcing news that former President Bill Clinton will present during The Film Society of Lincoln Center’s 40th Annual Chaplin Award presentation to Barbra Streisand, the organization has today announced the full list of presenters and performers for the evening — and it’s quite the bunch.
Presenters will include former co-stars and friends Pierce Brosnan, Blythe Danner, Richard Dreyfuss, Amy Irving and Kris Kristofferson, in addition to special performances by Tony Bennett, Kristen Chenoweth, Wynton Marsalis and Liza Minnelli as part of this year’s more significant music element in honor of Streisand’s work as a musician.
The Award was first honored in 1972 to its namesake, Charlie Chaplin, and has continued throughout the years, honoring such figures as Alfred Hitchcock, Laurence Olivier, Federico Fellini, Elizabeth Taylor and Martin Scorsese. This year’s presentation will feature various film and interview clips from throughout Streisand’s legendary music and film careers with her in attendance to accept the award.
The fundraising Gala is open to the general public with all profits going towards the Film Society.
