Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon And More At Palm Springs Film Festival — PHOTOS!
The Palm Springs International Film Festival held its 2015 awards gala on Saturday, bringing out Hollywood stars one week before the Golden Globes. Check out the pictures below!
Reese Witherspoon received the Chairman’s Award for her work in Wild, presented by her co-star Laura Dern. Brad Pitt amusingly presented to Selma star David Oyelowo, giving the actor a kiss and telling the audience how to correctly pronounce his last name. Robert Duvall was honored with the Icon Award by The Judge colleague Robert Downey Jr.
Steve Carrell reunited with Crazy, Stupid, Love co-star Julianne Moore (with whom he also stars in an upcoming movie) for her to receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award, an honor that also went to Eddie Redmayne for his role in The Theory of Everything. When accepting the Ensemble Award for The Imitation Game, Benedict Cumberbatch hilariously quipped that Keira Knightley was absent because she thought the ceremony was in Palm Beach, Florida, not Palm Springs, California.
Other honorees also included Rosamund Pike for Gone Girl, J.K. Simmons for Whiplash, Birdman director Alejandro G. Inarritu, and Boyhood mastermind Richard Linklater, who took home the Sonny Bono Visionary Award. It was a group that will probably be together quite often in the coming weeks as awards season kick into high gear. See the photos below!
