The Oscar winner and Gravity star will receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actress, at the 25th edition of the Palm Springs International Film Festival. The award will be presented January 4 at the Palm Springs Convention Center. “Sandra Bullock is the epitome of cinematic talent and versatility,” festival Chairman Harold Matzner said. “As first-time astronaut Dr. Ryan Stone in Gravity, Bullock faces the primal nightmare of being stranded in space with no apparent way of returning. Throughout the entire film, her determination to survive is masterfully portrayed.” The festival announced last week that Matthew McConaughey will receive this year’s Desert Palm award for actors. The event runs January 3-13.
