Meryl Streep is set to receive an honorary Golden Bear award next month.

The Oscar-winning actress will be presented with the accolade on February 14 at the Berlin Film Festival in recognition of her career, which has seen her star in a number of movies including 'The Devil Wears Prada', 'Mama Mia!' and 'Death Becomes Her'.

Dieter Kosslick, the festival's director, said in a written statement: "Meryl Streep is a brilliant, versatile performer who moves with ease between dramatic and comedic roles."

Meryl will be presented with the award by the festival at the screening of her latest film 'The Iron Lady', a biopic that sees her portray Britain's former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

A selection of the 62-year-old star's other films including 'Sophie's Choice', 'Kramer vs. Kramer', 'The Bridges of Madison County' and 'Out of Africa' will also be shown to the audience under the Homage section at the spectacle.

In 2003, Meryl shared the festival's Silver Bear award for Best Actress with Julianne Moore and Nicole Kidman.
