The star of August: Osage County will collect the 25th Palm Springs International Film Festival’s (PSIFF) Spotlight Award on January 4 2014.

“Julia Roberts is a consummate actress with a range as vast as her talent,” said festival chairman Harold Matzner.

“Her ability to consistently give standout performances over the past 25 years is remarkable. In her latest, August: Osage County, she is a key catalyst in a darkly comic tale of a family coming back together after tragedy strikes.”

Previous recipients of the Spotlight Award include Jessica Chastain and Amy Adams.

PSIFF runs from January 3-13 2014.
