The first stop this year was yesterday’s Palms Springs International Film Festival. Helen Mirren was on hand to introduce “Trumbo” co-star Bryan Cranston, who has received the festival’s spotlight award. Pictures have been added to the photo gallery.

Helen’s performane in “Trumbo” is steaming on and seems to become a serious player in the 2016 awards race for Best Supporting Actress. Both the San Francisco Film Critics and the San Diego Film Critics Society have nominated her portrayal as Hedda Hopper, the former includes Elizabeth Banks (Love & Mercy), Mya Taylor (Tangerine) and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina and The Danish Girl), the latter Olivia Cooke (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl), Kristen Stewart (Clouds of Sila Maria), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight) and Vikander for The Danish Girl. With the recent nods at the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild, odds are on for an Oscar nomination as well. Fingers crossed.
