Happy early New Year Mrs. Carey-Cannon.

Mariah Carey will receive the “Breakthrough Performance Award” at the 21st annual Palm Springs International Film Festival. The awards gala will be taking place Jan. 5th, 2010 in Palms Springs, California.

Mimi is being honored for her performance in Precious. Festival chairman Harold Matzner said Carey “completely transformed herself from a glamorous music icon to a forthright social worker for the role of Ms. Weiss in Precious.”

The Glitter acting transformation is reason enough for any award. –Jamal Munnerlyn
