Sandra Bullock - Sandra Bullock Lands Film Festival Honour For Gravity Role

Sandra Bullock is to be honoured for her role in Gravity at the 25th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival (Psiff) in California.

The star will receive the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actress, at the event on 4 January (14) at the Palm Springs Convention Center for her role in the new sci-fi thriller which also stars George Clooney.

In her latest and arguably most demanding role as first-time astronaut Dr. Ryan Stone in Gravity, Bullock faces the primal nightmare of being stranded in space with no apparent way of returning.

"Throughout the entire film, her determination to survive is masterfully portrayed. To this consummate performer who continues to captivate audiences with her artistry, it is our honour to present the 2014 Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actress to Sandra Bullock."

Bullock will be joined by her A Time to Kill co-star Matthew MCConaughey, who will be receiving the Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actor for his drama Dallas Buyers Club.
