Close has earned five Oscar nominations throughout her 33 year career, as well as garnering two Golden Globe awards, two Emmys and three Tony Awards for her theatre and musical roles.
The 61-year-old enjoyed a career revival in 2007 playing hard-hitting litigator Patty Hughes in hit U.S. series Damages.
The Hollywood Reporter's editor Elizabeth Guide, says, "It's the amazing performances she's had of late on cable (TV), which has brought her back in the public consciousness, and the fact she's been active in community fundraising and a real industry leader."
Former winners of the honour include Jodie Foster, Meryl Streep and Barbara Walters.
