Robert Duvall, Alejandro Inarritu Nab Palm Springs Film Fest Honors

Robert Duvall will be honored with the Icon Award and Alejandro G. Inarritu with the Director of the Year award at the Palm Springs Film Festival Gala on January 3.

Robert Duvall gives an outstanding and amazingly realistic performance as Judge Joseph Palmer in ‘The Judge,’” said festival chairman Harold Matzner.

Regarding Inarritu, who is receiving the award for the second time, Matzner said, “By creating the illusion that the film was shot in one take and directing award-worthy performances by Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone and a star-studded cast, Inarritu has created a brilliant and original dark comedy in ‘Birdman.'”

Held at the Palm Springs convention center, the gala will also present awards to previously announced honorees Richard Linklater, Julianne Moore, David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Eddie Redmayne, J.K. Simmons, Reese Witherspoon and the cast of “The Imitation Game.”  The festival runs January 2-12.
