Nick Cannon has been named breakthrough actor of the year for his role in the film "Bobby" by the Studio Magazine/Chopard Revelation Awards, one of four official events at the Festival de Cannes. Cannon, who will receive his award Friday at the Carlton Hotel, becomes the first black actor to receive the honor and will share the award with James McAvoy, who won for his performance in "The Last King of Scotland." Also at the event, Evan Rachel Wood will be honored as breakthrough actress of the year for "Running With Scissors." "It was a great privilege to have been a part of the amazing ensemble cast of 'Bobby,' and now to be recognized among such tremendous talents as Evan Rachel and James is truly an honor," Cannon said.
