Barbra Streisand’s film career honoured by `Film Society of Lincoln Centre`

London - US singer Barbra Streisand has been honoured for her six decade film career with the 40th annual Chaplin Award Gala from the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York on Monday.

Former president Bill Clinton, Liza Minnelli and singer Tony Bennett paid a tribute to the 71-year-old actress, the BBC reported.

Streisand is one of just a few to have won all four major US awards - an Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and an honorary Tony.

The event raised 2 million dollars to help the centre promote independent cinema.

“Ever since I can remember, people have been calling me bossy and opinionated,” Streisand told the audience, while accepting the award.

“Maybe that’s because I am. Three cheers for bossy women,” she added.

Organisers showed clips from Streisand’s film ‘Funny Girl’- for which she won an Oscar- and her other movies including ‘The Way We Were’, ‘What's Up, Doc?’ and the Meet the Parents seque, ‘Meet the Fockers’.

“Every great person is driven," the former president said. "But if that person has massive talent, big brains and a bigger heart, you want to go along for the ride,” former US President Clinton said.

Also appearing onstage were Michael Douglas, Pierce Brosnan, Kris Kristofferson and ‘Meet The Fockers’ co-stars Blythe Danner and Ben Stiller.

Streisand was serenaded by Bennett, who closed the show with the song, Smile, written by Charlie Chaplin.
