iW NEWS | Santa Barbara Fest To Honor Cruz

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival has announced that it will honor Penelope Cruz with the Outstanding Performer of the Year Award at the 24th edition of the Fest, which runs January 22-February 1, 2009. “There are few actresses who can today be described as international movie goddesses, and this year, with her exceptional work in ‘Elegy‘ and ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona,’ Penelope Cruz has earned that description,” said SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling in a statement. Cruz will receive the award on Saturday, January 31, at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara. Previous recipients include Angelina Jolie (2008), Helen Mirren (2007), and Heath Ledger (2006).
