SANTA BARBARA FEST TO HONOUR FOREST WHITAKER


Forest Whitaker, a potential Oscar nominee this year for Lee Daniels' The Butler, will receive the Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence at the 2013 Santa Barbara Film Fest on Sunday, the 15th of December. They're definitely doing this for his contribution to cinema, not for the publicity that an A-list Oscar-winning lead of one of the year's most popular films will bring to the festival.
