Actor Holly Hunter will be presented with the Career Achievement Award at the upcoming Palm Springs International Film Festival.
“Holly Hunter’s career is filled with many memorable performances including her Academy Award-winning role in “The Piano” as well as other films including “Broadcast News,” “The Firm,” “The Incredibles” and more,” said Festival Chairman Harold Matzner. “In her recent film “The Big Sick,” she brings comedy and poignancy as a mother coping with her daughter’s coma, while bonding with her daughter’s ex-boyfriend. It is our great honor to present the Career Achievement Award to Holly Hunter.”
Holly Hunter is an Academy and Emmy Award winner who has acted on both stage and screen.
