John Travolta To Receive Award At Hollywood Film Festival
John Travolta's selection was determined by his remarkable performance as Edna Turnblad in Adam Shankman's musical comedy "Hairspray," a role first made famous by Divine in John Waters' 1988 classic, and subsequently introduced in the Broadway musical by Harvey Fierstein in 2002.
The award will be presented to Travolta during the Festival's black-tie awards ceremony banquet before a gathering of 1,200 industry and guild executives, stars, celebrities, filmmakers and members of the media in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
