The 21st Annual Awards Gala for the 2010 Palm Springs International Film Festival sure is getting a lot of attention.
Mariah Carey’s acceptance speech for her performance in the movie “Precious” has been analyzed and questioned and laughed about. Statements vary from the fact that she seemed “spaced out”, to having to be carried off the stage, to “tipsy” from too much champagne.
She was presented with the award by the film’s director Lee Daniels (pictured here with her). The next night when she accepted another award she was asked about the previous evening’s “incident” to which she responded to the Associated Press “The thing is me and Lee hadn’t see each other in a long time, and then he was presenting my award, so he starts off immediately with inside jokes. We had splashes of champagne, and I love Lee but he’s a bad influence.”
Anyway, all press is good press so no one is complaining, probably least of all the festival’s official presenter: Cartier.
Apparently, while all this was happening on the main stage, backstage, winners and presenters were given Cartier watches. Free Cartier watches?! Lucky!
To walk away with a Cartier watch is no small feat. Cartier watches are some of the nicest, most sought after luxury watches of all time. Regardless of the shapes, size, model or style, they’re all winners in my mind.
