palm springs international film festival
It’s the first big red carpet of 2018, and stars like Gal Gadot and Jessica Chastain did not disappoint. See the best dressed stars at the Film Festival here!
Next year’s Palm Springs International Film Festival is just around the corner and it’s going to be more star-studded than ever!
With honorees such as Brad Pitt and George Clooney, we’re more excited than ever for the 2012 Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala Jan. 7. Although the committee hasn’t announced a complete list of A-listers receiving awards at the glamourous event, which is presented by Cartier, we know quite a few.
Sorry, Vanessa – but you won’t be calling Mariah “mom” on the big screen any time soon
When reports started swirling that Mariah Carey, 40, would play Vanessa Hudgens’ parental figure in a comedy flick based on American Idol, we thought: perfect! They have the same hair!
Unfortunately, Mariah says that she hasn’t even heard the rumors, much less signed on to star in the film.
“I hadn’t heard that…hmm,” the songbird told HollywoodLife.com exclusively before her drunken acceptance speech for Breakthrough Performance in Precious on Jan. 5 at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
Does this mean there’s actually a shot that the pop diva will appear with High School Musical starlet Vanessa, 21?
Oh come on, haven’t you let your hair down for a big celebration? Mariah Carey did— but perhaps she should have picked a more private forum than a fancy awards gala!
Mariah Carey got a little too friendly with a bottle of champagne on Jan. 5, and the songbird, 40, clearly felt guilty enough about her boozy acceptance speech at the Palm Springs International Film Festival (see video below) to explain the reasons behind her insobriety .
“[Precious director Lee Daniels and I] were sitting there celebrating, having little splashes [of champagne] and I hadn’t eaten. That’s what it was,” she confessed to reporters backstage at the People’s Choice Awards in L.A. the following night, Jan. 6.

Hey Mariah, maybe the next time you accept a big award you should remember to eat first!
There’s a lot of buzz about Mariah Carey’s erratic behavior at the Palm Springs International Film Festival gala Jan 5. In fact, there was SO much buzz because Mariah was MORE than buzzed – the songbird’s acceptance speech for her Breakthrough Performance in Precious was barely coherent.
After arriving onstage to accept her trophy, Mariah, 39, immediately leaped into Precious director Lee Daniels’ arms (he was her escort for the evening as hubby Nick Cannon, 29, was MIA) and began her slurring speech. “Well, I mean, please forgive me, I’m a little bit…” she stuttered at one point, whereupon one sassy audience member shouted out, “F***ing wasted!” Miz Mariah pointed one manicured finger at the screamer and yelled back, “Yea!”
Hey, it happens. Haven’t you ever had one too many and made a fool out of yourself?
Mariah Carey made quite a scene at the Palm Springs International Film Festival – and not because of her fashion sense, either. No, according to several sources – and even a few celebrities – the diva definitely had few more glasses of bubbly — or, whatever — than sense would dictate.
After giving a long-winded, rambling speech, the songbird, who had been honored at the festival for her breakthrough performance as an understated counselor in Precious, was escorted away while concerned audience members hurriedly clapped her offstage around 8:30 PM on Jan. 5. Her erratic behavior didn’t go unnoticed by Sean Penn, who walked onstage as she exited.
“I, unlike the prior speaker, will do this speech completely sober,” Sean, 49, cracked. Up in the Air director Jason Reitman, 32, made a similar statement. “I’m about as happy as Mariah is feeling right now!” he laughed.
