Everything about the Palm Springs International Film Festival's Film Awards Gala is supersized. The venue is massive, hosting approximately 2,500 guests. The honorees list is huge, with a dozen award winners taking the stage in the same night. (By comparison, Sunday's Golden Globes will dole out 14 awards on the film side.)
Twelve honorees. Twelve acceptance speeches. Thirteen presenters. Nearly $2.5 million raised for the fest's educational programming. It all made for a jam-packed and starry night inside the Palm Springs Convention Center where Mary Hart handled hosting duties and American Express, AT&T and Entertainment Tonight handled sponsorship.
On the lineup were Cynthia Erivo, Joaquin Phoenix, Antonio Banderas, Laura Dern, Zack Gottsagen, Quentin Tarantino, Jennifer Lopez, Jamie Foxx, Charlize Theron, Adam Driver, Renée Zellweger and Martin Scorsese. Below — in order of presentation — is a rundown of the night's major moments on stage.
