'Gravity' star Sandra Bullock will be awarded the Desert Palm Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival (PSIFF).
The 49-year-old star is set to travel to the festival's 25th edition at Palm Springs Convention Center on January 4 to receive the honor alongside actor Matthew McConaughey, reported Ace Showbiz.
"Sandra Bullock is the epitome of cinematic talent and versatility. In her latest and arguably most demanding role as first-time astronaut Dr Ryan Stone in 'Gravity', Bullock faces the primal nightmare of being stranded in space with no apparent way of returning," PSIFF festival chairman Harold Matzner said in a statement.
"Throughout the entire film, her determination to survive is masterfully portrayed To this consummate performer who continues to captivate audiences with her artistry, it is our honour to present the 2014 Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actress, to Sandra Bullock," Matzner added.
In receiving the award, Bullock is following the footsteps of actresses like Halle Berry, Marion Cotillard and Anne Hathaway.
