Sandra Bullock will receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award for Acting at the 25th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival.

The awards gala will be held on Jan. 4 at the Palm Springs Convention Center — the second day of the fest, which runs Jan. 3 to 13.

Bullock’s performance in Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity” has generated substantial awards buzz following her Oscar for “The Blind Side” in 2010. Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, who finds herself lost in space after a routine mission goes terribly awry. She has described the role as the most physically, emotionally and mentally challenging experience of her life.

The Palm Springs Fest previously announced that Matthew McConaughey would also be honored with the Desert Palm award, and duo also nabbed top acting honors at October’s Hollywood Film Awards.

    Nov. 15, 2013 Sandra will not be in Palm Springs January 4, 2013 for that award presentation and any video will be a false digital recreation, the new norm in 2013. Also Matthew McConaughey is not Sandra Bullock’s good friend, as a matter of fact Matthew started out in Hollywood as a male prostitute and he never dated Sandra Bullock, and more info on that subject located at this link
