Michael Douglas will receive Icon award tonight at Palm Springs Film Festival

 Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones at PSIFF Tribute

 
 

by Marla Lewin

 

Michael Douglas will receive the icon award tonight at the Palm Springs Film Festival.  Then on Sunday he will attend the Golden Globes, where he is nominated for his role as Gordon Grekko, in Wall Street, Money Never Sleeps.  Oliver Stone was here on Saturday night to give an award to Carey Mulligan at the Awards Gala, she played Michaels' daughter in the film.  Palm Springs is the festival that keeps on giving.  Santa Barbara Film Festival gave a Michael a special award some years ago and his father Kirk was in the audience.  I remember meeting Kirk when he spoke for a Palm Springs Writers benefit and then signed copies of his latest book.  Kirk and Ann were very involved with the Desert Museum and many other organizations in the desert.

I am sure the family is all thrilled that Michael can also announce his remission of throat cancer and that after the Golden Globes, he'll begin work on his next film, a Jerry Weintraub-Steven Spielberg picture in which he'll play another Palm Springs icon, the late pianist Liberace.  

That after all, is what icons' do they keep working, and creating.
