Mariah Carey stole the show at the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards last night. After winning the award for breakthrough actress, she sauntered onto stage in a floor length, skintight, shimmering Herve Leger gown to accept the honor from her Precious director Lee Daniels.
After awkwardly standing at the podium for a few seconds she said, "Please forgive me, because I'm a little bit, um ..." An audience member graciously filled in the blank with an expletive and Mariah pointed in their direction and said, "Exactly," before laughing.
Carey has been earning rave reviews for her turn as a social worker in Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire, ever since the movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Jan. 2009.
