Timothée Chalamet will receive the Spotlight Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s (PSIFF) annual Film Awards Gala. The event takes place January 3 at the Palm Springs Convention Center, with the fest running January 3-14.
“Timothée Chalamet gives a heartwarming, but tragic performance as a young man struggling with drug addiction in the film Beautiful Boy,” said Festival Chairman Harold Matzner. “Last year Timothée was the recipient of the Festival’s Rising Star Award for his role in Call Me by Your Name. He is definitely a rising star. It is our honor to present the Spotlight Award, Actor to Timothée Chalamet.”
Chalamet’s body of work includes Hot Summer Nights, Lady Bird, and Miss Stevens. Past recipients of the Spotlight Award include Bryan Cranston, Andrew Garfield, Sam Rockwell, and J.K. Simmons.
