Austin Butler to Receive Breakthrough Performance Award at Palm Springs International Film Awards – Film News in Brief

Austin Butler is set to receive the Breakthrough Performance Award for his performance in “Elvis” at the Palm Springs International Film Awards.

“Austin Butler commands the screen with a larger-than-life performance as Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s spectacular film Elvis. The heart and soul of the movie, Butler’s dedication to this role shows in the nuances he brought to the character, seen through multiple decades of the often-tumultuous life Elvis lived, as well as the sprawling live performances where Austin embodies the iconic artist in a way previously unseen on the big screen,” festival chairman Harold Matzner said in a statement. “We are honored to present the Breakthrough Performance Award to Austin Butler.”

In July, Butler won the best actor award for his role as Elvis from the Hollywood Critics Association. His upcoming projects include “Dune: Part Two,” “Masters of the Air” and “The Bikeriders.”

The Palm Springs International Film Awards will take place on Jan. 5 at the Palms Springs Convention Center, with the festival running through Jan. 16.
