Berry lands leadership honour

Berry will receive The Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at the industry publication’s 18th annual Power 100: Women in Entertainment breakfast.

Berry follows in the footsteps of Meryl Streep and Jodie Foster, Glenn Close, U.S. news anchor Barbara Walters and movie mogul Lansing herself with the honour – which recognises groundbreaking contributions to the entertainment industry.

She will take the stage after Hilary Swank, who has signed on to give the keynote address for the 4 December (09) event, to be held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California.
