Nicole Kidman Hailed at Santa Barbara, Renee Zellweger Honored at German Film Awards


On February 5, Kidman received Cinema Vanguard Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, while Zellweger took Best International Actress prize at the Golden Camera awards.

Nicole Kidman was the toast of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in California on Saturday, February 5 as she was honored with a top prize. The "Moulin Rouge!" star received the coveted Cinema Vanguard Award, which recognizes stars who take artistic risks and make a significant contribution to film, at a special tribute as part of the 10-day event.

Taking to the stage to accept the trophy, Kidman told the audience, "I suppose that's in my blood. I don't even see it as taking a risk, I just see it as staying true to my heart and instinct." The honor has previously been presented to Vera Farmiga, Christoph Waltz and Peter Sarsgaard.

Also on Saturday night, February 5, John Travolta, Renee Zellweger and Michael J. Fox were among the honorees at the Golden Camera awards in Germany. The "Back to the Future" star landed the Lifetime Achievement trophy for his contribution to movies and singer Gloria Gaynor received the music equivalent at the Berlin ceremony.

Travolta won the Best International Actor Prize, while Zellweger won the Best International Actress prize - and the "Bridget Jones's Diary" star admits she was overwhelmed to land the award, which has previously been handed to Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett and Jodie Foster. She told the audience, "I am so honored to be part of the same group of great artists who have received this honor over the last 46 years."
