Father, Son, and House of Gucci: a press release announced that the Palm Springs International Film Awards have named Lady Gaga the recipient of its Icon Award. The Oscar and Grammy winner is recognized for his performance in “House of Gucci”.
“For many, Lady Gaga is an icon through her music, but she continues to impress audiences with her iconic acting roles. “After her memorable performance in ‘A Star is Born’, Lady Gaga once again raises the bar in her portrayal of Patrizia Reggiani in ‘House of Gucci’, the shockingly true story of the family behind the Italian fashion empire,” said festival president Harold. Matzner. “For this tour-de-force performance, it is our honor to present the Icon Award to Lady Gaga.”
Meryl Streep and Glenn Close are among the previous recipients of the Icon Award.
The film awards take place on January 6, with the Palm Springs International Film Festival running through January 17. This year’s other honorary awards include Jane Campion (award for Instructor of the Year); Jessica Chastain (Desert Palm Achievement Award, Actress); Penélope Cruz (International Star Award, actress); Jennifer Hudson (Chairman’s Award); and Kristen Stewart (Spotlight Award, actress).
Lady Gaga, who has been nominated for an Oscar three times, received a nod for best performance in music written for film (Original Song) for “The Hunting Ground” and “A Star is Born”, and a nomination for her starring role in the latter. She received an Oscar for original song for “Shallow” from “A Star is Born”.
Now in theaters, “House of Gucci” tells the story of Patrizia Reggiani and Maurizio Gucci and their struggle for control of the Gucci brand.
