ShoWest to honor Seyfried

'Dear John' star to get breakthrough award

Amanda Seyfried will receive the 2010 Sho-West Breakthrough Female Star of the Year Award.

ShoWest gets under way Monday in Las Vegas.

Seyfried, who is in theaters with Screen Gems and Relativity’s “Dear John,” appears next in Summit Entertainment’s “Letters to Juliet,” which unspools May 14.

“The diversity in the characters Seyfried has portrayed and the strength of her performances–from the airhead in ‘Mean Girls’ to the singing dreamer in ‘Mamma Mia!’ — have quickly made her a hot young film actress in recent years,” said ShoWest managing director Robert Sunshine.

Seyfried will be feted during Thursday’s closing night banquet.
