On Tuesday evening, Timothée Chalamet snared the Rising Star Award at the 29th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival in California.
Co-honoree Gal Gadot also won in the category.
Sponsored by Cadillac, the event included attendees like Gary Oldman, Salma Hayek, Jessica Chastain, Octavia Spencer, and Chalamet’s costar in Call Me By Your Name, Armie Hammer.
During his speech, the 22-year-old Chalamet thanked Hammer for the “brotherhood” he demonstrated while filming.
“It’s truly an awesome feeling to get to be in the Rising Stars category tonight alongside Gal Gadot,” he said.
“Gal, your film has literally made 250 times more money than my movie has. I’m left feeling a little insecure, unqualified to be up here but it’s okay. Armie, it’s a lot easier to be up here because you’re one of my best buddies.
Seriously I’m grateful for your big brotherhood and your guidance and your friendship. To have someone in your position, and as talented as you are, be a mentor to me for the last two years is invaluable to me. I really mean it, man.”
Then Chalamet turned to Hammer’s wife Elizabeth Chambers and basically thanked her for letting him mack on her husband:
“And special thanks to Armie’s wife, Elizabeth Chambers, who is here tonight, as well, who is as crucial to this process as anyone. And for letting me crawl all over your husband for two months. Thank you for that.”
