Funny how these things happen, huh? Not only has it been announced, per the Hollywood Reporter, that the Breakthrough Performance award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival will go to Mariah Carey for her genuinely astonishing work in 'Precious,' but Carey, it turns out, will be there to accept it.

The festival, which runs Jan. 5 through Jan. 18, is one that stars make conscious decisions to attend, given that January is smack in the middle of awards season. The awards ceremony, a gala event heavily promoted by the festival, is on opening night.
