The Palm Springs International Film Festival has begun its roll-out of honoree announcements for its Jan. 2 awards gala. Kicking things off is “Carol” and “Truth” star Cate Blanchett, tapped for the Desert Palm Achievement Award for actresses.

“Cate Blanchett is one of the most award-winning and outstanding actresses of her generation, delivering extraordinary performances throughout her career including her Academy Award-winning roles as Katharine Hepburn in ‘The Aviator’ and the title role in Woody Allen’s ‘Blue Jasmine,’” festival chairman Harold Matzner said. “In her latest films ‘Carol’ and ‘Truth,’ Blanchett yet again brings to life two vibrant characters, both worthy of awards recognition.”
