The Palm Springs International Film Festival is awarding Mariah Carey their Breakthrough Performance Award for her performance in Precious. I have been to the Palms Springs Film Festival and I even wrote about an experience there one year. It is a serious film festival and they don't go passing out awards like candy. Well, not cheap candy anyway. They have a pretty good track record for this award. Sure the award will be presented in January and sure more people will come now they know Mariah is winning it, but Marion Cotillard won the same award for La Vie En Rose the year she won the Academy Award and Jennifer Hudson won the award the year she won the Academy Award.
So, Mariah for an Academy Award. Do you think the world would explode if that happened? Glitter to Academy Award. If she won she would require four people to lower her to a sofa in the future. She would have to probably square off against Mo'Nique but Mo'Nique has made so many people mad with her press work she might not get nominated.
