Actress Kate Winslet is set to fete her Mildred Pierce co-star Guy Pearce with a special award for his career achievements at an event recognising notable Australians.
Pearce will be one of three guests of honour, alongside basketball player Luc Longley and musical duo Air Supply, at the ninth annual G'Day Usa Los Angeles Black Tie Gala on 14 January (12).
G'Day Usa Organising Committee Chairman Wally Mariani says, "We are thrilled to have Kate Winslet present her Mildred Pierce co-star Guy Pearce with the Excellence in Film & Television Award at this year's G'Day Usa Los Angeles Black Tie Gala, especially the night before the Golden Globes, when they are both nominees."
The prizegiving is part of the three-week G'Day Usa Australia Week programme.
Previous honourees include Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Cate Blanchett and Naomi Watts.
