The Palm Springs International Film Festival (January 3-14) will present Helen Mirren with the International Star Award on January 5 at their Awards gala.

The festival's chairman Harold Matzner states, “With more than four decades' worth of memorable film, television and stage performances, Helen Mirren continues to be one of the most outstanding actresses of her generation," adding that in "Hitchcock" she "delivers another virtuoso performance as Alma Reville."

Earlier today, Oscar-winning actress Mirren received a surprise SAG nomination for Female Actor in a Leading Role for Sacha Gervasi's "Hitchcock," which has generally underwhelmed in terms of awards buzz. Mirren won a Best Actress Academy Award in 2006 for Stephen Frears' "The Queen."

Other honoree recipients at the 24th PSIFF include the ensemble cast of Ben Affleck's "Argo," Bradley Cooper, Sally Field, Helen Hunt, Naomi Watts and Robert Zemeckis.
