Nat To Gotham

Not quite what you think but still good news. Natalie is to be honoured at the Gotham Independent Film Awards, with a career achievement award. Here’s the mention from In Contention.

The feted will be: Kathryn Bigelow, whose film “The Hurt Locker” is on a steady awards season course; Natalie Portman, who is said to give a pretty solid performance in Jim Sheridan’s upcoming “Brothers”; and Stanley Tucci, who is already a delight opposite Meryl Streep in “Julie & Julia” and could be an awards contender at season’s end for his performance in Peter Jackson’s “The Lovely Bones.”

This is what the IFP have to say about Natalie.

From a young age it has always been obvious that Natalie was a unique talent…Her maturity was evident from the beginning, both in the roles she chose and the quality of her performances. IFP is excited to salute her still young but already full career this year as she shows off her directing, producing, and acting talents in three different films this winter.
