Awards season is kicking off and Hollywood's glitterati were out in full force on Sunday. The 25th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival honoured some of acting's biggest stars. Tom Hanks was given the Chairman's Award for his role in "Captain Phillips.", and offered a typically astute insight into awards season. SOUNDBITE: Actor, Tom Hanks, saying (English): "To be invited to the Palm Spring International Film Festival is an honor and a delight beyond words and sometimes beyond reasoning. It means without a doubt that the holidays have come to an end, and for a few lucky people, the celebrity meal train is just beginning." Meryl Streep was recognised with the festival's Icon Award, while Julia Roberts was given the Spotlight Award for her role in August: Osage County. Meanwhile Sandra Bullock took an acting honour for her turn in "Gravity." SOUNDBITE: Actress, Sandra Bullock, saying (English): "So I Googled myself and I read the comment section so I could get some tidbits of what people think of me and share them. And apparently Julia and I are in a dispute over George Clooney. We talked about this, right? It's shared custody and we're both fine with it." Oscar tip "12 Years a Slave" picked up two honours for its director, Steve McQueen, and actress Lupita Nyong'o, who took home the Breakthrough Performance Award. "American Hustle", the other Academy Award tip, was awarded "Best Ensemble Cast", collected by Bradley Cooper. SOUNDBITE: Actor, Bradley Cooper, saying (English): "This is a movie that celebrates life, that celebrates survival, that celebrates romance, love, heartbreak, and ultimately renewal. I think it's the kind of movie that reminds me that we love going to the movies." Also recognised at the gala were U2, who received the Sonny Bono Visionary Award, and Bruce Dern, who got the Career Achievement Award.
