On Thursday (12.07,) Helen Mirren will present Adele with a special honor at The Hollywood Reporter’s Women In Entertainment Gala.
The Oscar-winning thespian, who was presented with the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award in 2010, will pay homage to the multi-Grammy award winner hitmaker by giving her the same prize at the Los Angeles breakfast fete.
In a statement, the magazine’s co-editors in chief Nekesa Mumbi Moody and Maer Roshan said:
“We’re honored to have 2010’s Sherry Lansing Leadership Award honoree pass the torch this year to Adele.” “Adele has had a groundbreaking career that has established her as one of the all-time greats: a brilliant songwriter, a stunning vocalist, a top-notch performer and an artist whose talents have no limit. She has set a standard of excellence not only as a female performer, but a performer, period.” “Her accolades – from multiple Grammys to her Emmy and Oscar – attest to that. In addition, she’s used her platform to inspire and help others. She is truly deserving of this award.”
Recognizing trailblazers and philanthropists in entertainment and media, the Sherry Lansing leadership accolade was named after the very first woman to head a major Hollywood studio.
In addition to Adele, Ariana DeBose will present Kerry Washington with the Equity in Entertainment Award, and Will Ferrell will serve as the opening speaker. The gala will also feature appearances from Camila Cabello, Lily Gladstone, Dua Lipa, Billie Lourd and her father Bryan Lourd.
