Produced by JumpLine, the annual CDGA gala celebrates excellence in film, TV and shortform costume design as selected by the guild’s membership — more than 900 working costume designers and Illustrators from across the globe. Of Streep and Kurland, CDG president Salvador Perez said, "As leaders of their respective crafts, their work has influenced and entertained us for decades and continues to do so. We are thrilled to be honoring them both this year.”
With the distinguished collaborator honor, Streep joins a roster of honorees that includes Quentin Tarantino, Richard Linklater, Helen Mirren, Judd Apatow, Clint Eastwood, Rob Marshall, Jim Burrows and Lorne Michaels. Previous recipients of the career achievement award include Ellen Mirojnick, Julie Weiss, April Ferry, Eduardo Castro, Judianna Makovsky, Colleen Atwood, Sandy Powell and Ann Roth.
Three-time Oscar-winner Streep is coming off a critically well-received performance in Florence Foster Jenkins, which hit theaters in August. Kurland, who got his start in the film business working with Woody Allen, has also worked with such accomplished directors as Milos Forman, Neil Jordan, Steven Soderbergh, Michael Mann, Nora Ephron, Brad Bird, Paul Feig and Christopher Nolan. His credits include this year's Ghostbusters reboot, Tomorrowland, The Dictator, Inception and the upcoming Dunkirk.
