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 Pittand 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.
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!”

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. Read
