Marion Cotillard, Sean Penn and Quentin Tarantino hit the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards
Mariah Carey may have stolen the spotlight with her spirited speech, but other heavyweights did show face at the Palm Springs Convention Center for the awards presentation.
Sean Penn attended the bash for his third consecutive year, presenting an achievement award to composer T Bone Burnett for his work on "Crazy Heart." After the show, Penn attended the celeb-packed Parker for cocktails with gay activist Cleve Jones (instrumental in the making of Penn's Oscar-winning "Milk") and directors Jason Reitman and Quentin Tarantino.
Nearby, Marion Cotillard gushed about receiving her best actress award for "Nine," so soon after her 2008 breakthrough award win for "La Vie en Rose."
Also in the crowd were Clint Eastwood, who drove himself to the event, and "Jennifer's Body" mastermind Diablo Cody.
Jeff Bridges, star of "Crazy Heart," made it to the shindig to snag his trophy -- presented by Michelle Pfeiffer -- but with a bad case of walking pneumonia. Perhaps Mariah has a cure for what ails him?
