Sally Field to receive Palm Springs Film Festival honor
Two-time Oscar-winning actress Sally Field, currently starring as Mary Todd Lincoln in Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” will receive the Career Achievement Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival’s Awards Gala on Jan 5.
The 24th annual festival takes place Jan. 3-14.
“From her all-American roles that brought her early stardom on television to her memorable and award-winning film performances, Sally Field has impressed audiences with her incredible range,” said festival chairman Harold Matzner in a statement Thursday morning.
Field won Oscars for best actress for 1979’s “Norma Rae” and 1984’s “Places in the Heart.” Earlier this week, the New York Film Critics Circle named Field best supporting actress for “Lincoln.”
She’ll be discussing her career on Dec. 16 at the American Cinematheque’s Aero Theatre in Santa Monica.
Previous Career Achievement recipients include Glenn Close, Robert Duvall and Clint Eastwood.
