During her acceptance of an award at the Palm Springs Film Festival, singer Mariah Carey seems... out of it. So strange that....

Pop diva Mariah Carey won the Breakthrough Performance Award by the Palm Springs International Film Festival for her performance on the film "Precious: Based on the novel Push by Sapphire." "We're delighted to be able to present the Breakthrough Performance Award to the extraordinary, very beautiful and versatile Mariah Carey, who, in a critically acclaimed role, completely transformed herself from a glamorous music icon to a forthright social worker for the role of Ms. Weiss in Precious," Harold Matzner, the festival's chairman said. In the past, Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Hudson, Felicity Huffman and Freida Pinto have been awarded the prize in this category, according to the festival. "Precious" is directed by Lee Daniels and starred by Gabourey Sidibe. The drama is now on theaters in the U.S. and is rated with 91 percent of positive reviews, according to, a reviews agreggation site.
