  • The 27th Palm Springs Film Festival honours the best in movies this year

The 27th Palm Springs Film Festival honoured Johnny Depp, Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale and Matt Damon ahead of the Oscars.

Every year the Palm Springs Film Festival is held ahead of the extensive awards season to honour the performers that the festival acknowledges as the best in the past year.

It is a non-televised, black tie event that the actors and actresses essentially attend to anchor their spots at the Oscars. The winners or the honored actors are informed ahead of time so there is no tension or anxiety and the actors enjoy a good evening of socializing with one another. 

So this year was the same as Johnny Depp arrived with his wife Amber Heard supporting him as he claimed a trophy for his performance in the Black Mass. The actor also caught up with his former co-star Kate Winslet from Finding Neverland. He also gave credit to Amber for putting up with him. 

Matt took his time on the stage to root for Ridley Scott, reported Stuff.co.nz. He said that when he had starred in The Departed, they had praised Martin Scorsese time and again to earn him an Oscar and it worked.

He was applying the same strategy for Ridley Scott now. He said that Scott had dedicated his life to cinematic excellence and he was one of the finest directors in the world.

Ridley Scott deserved an Oscar for all his work. He took the time back stage to meet and greet his fellow-honouree and former co-star from Monument Men, Cate Blanchett.

Christian Bale was offended by the lack of audience’s interest as he went onstage to win the best cast ensemble with co-stars Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling and Finn Wittrock.

Cate Blanchett however basked in her moment of glory as she jokingly dissed her announcer Saoirse Ronan saying the Ronan was too young and talented and gorgeous and the moment was Cate’s.

She thanked the festival for honouring her. She said that even if she didn’t win later on at the Oscars. She would have this moment of glory to remember and not feeling like a loser.
