On January 3, the members of the cast of Mary Poppins Returns will accept the Ensemble Performance Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Film Awards Gala.
The 30th festival runs January 3–14 at the Palm Springs Convention Center. Cast members Emily Blunt (Mary Poppins), Pixie Davies (Anabel Banks), Nathanael Salah (John Banks), and Joel Dawson (Georgie Banks) will be there to accept the honor, presented by Mary Poppins Returns director-choreographer Rob Marshall.
“In this outstanding sequel, Mary Poppins is back to help the next generation of the Banks family as they race to keep the bank’s executives from foreclosing on their home,” said Festival Chairman Harold Matzner, according to Variety. “Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda lead an excellent ensemble cast that also includes Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury and many others.”
Past recipients of the Ensemble Performance Award include Best Picture winner Argo, as well as past Best Picture nominees American Hustle, The Big Short, Hidden Figures, The Imitation Game, and The Social Network. This year’s Oscar nominations will be announced January 22. However, Blunt and Miranda have each been nominated for 2019 Golden Globes for their performances and Marc Shaiman's score earned a Golden Globe nod for Best Score.
