Stars come out for the Palm Springs Film Awards

Hollywood's elite came out in force for the start of 2017 awards season, at the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards gala.

Whenever we read about people who received various awards or nominations, it seems like those are always the same people. I have no idea how many award did Natalie Portman had so far, but it must be more than 30…

Among the real winners, there were Nicole Kidman and Tom Hanks, with Kidman taking home the International Star Award for Lion and her portrayal of an Australian woman with an adopted Indian kid. It is said that the movie will definitely be nominated for multiple Oscars, including the most-wanted categories Best picture and Best supporting actress for Kidman.

Tom Hanks and his new movie Sully, received the Icon Award. He portrays pilot Captain Chesley Sullenberg. He was the pilot who successfully made an emergency landing in the Hudson River in 2009.

Among other honored actors, there were Andrew Garfield, and Natalie Portman.
