Actor Michelle Williams is to receive an award at the forthcoming Palm Springs International Film Festival in January.
The actor will receive the Desert Palm Achievement Actress Award at a special gala event on January 7.
"Every generation, the cinema has a few performers who mesmerize audiences with an exceptional blend of talent, versatility and grace," contactmusic.com quoted festival chairman Harold Matzner as saying.
"Williams epitomises these qualities as she continues to accept challenging role after challenging role. In her latest work, My Week with Marilyn, she perfectly captures the glamour and vulnerability of the iconic Marilyn Monroe who finds respite and solace during a week-long hiatus from Hollywood pressures," Matzner added.
