Video: Mariah Carey Drunkenly Accepts Palm Springs Film Festival Award

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.

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
