“The more we support each other, the stronger we become.” – Barbra Streisand
On December 9, 2015, Barbra Streisand was honored at The Hollywood Reporter’s 2015 Women in Entertainment breakfast. Each year, The Hollywood Reporter honors one woman who has made a significant social and cultural impact not only in Hollywood but in an integrated manner. Robert Redford presented Streisand with the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award which recognizes a woman who is both an innovator and leader in her industry. Past recipients of the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award include Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, and Shonda Rhimes. Barbra Streisand continues to dominate in all aspects of the entertainment industry, making her one of the most accomplished women in Hollywood history.
Streisand is considered one of the most accomplished women in Hollywood because of her success across the entertainment industry. Streisand has won two Academy Awards, ten Grammy Awards, and five Emmy Awards. Streisand is also the only artist ever to receive Oscar, Tony, Emmy, Grammy, Golden Globe, Director Guild of America, National Medal of Arts and Peabody awards as well as the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
In honor of Barbra’s accomplishments, Ciner recreated the Ciner Color Me Barbra earrings Streisand wore during her performance of Color Me Barbra. Color Me Barbra was broadcasted by CBS in January 1966 and was Streisand’s second televised program.
Ciner also presented the Ciner Color Me Barbara earrings to those being recognized by The Hollywood Reporter’s Power 100 Women in Entertainment as well as the presenters and celebrities that attended this highly anticipated event.
