Actress Emma Roberts was honoured for her career achievements at the Maui Film Festival in Hawaii on Thursday night (05Jun14). Julia Roberts' niece was presented with the Shining Star Award on the second day of the annual movie event.
On the opening night of the event on Tuesday (04Jun14), actor Mike Myers presented a special honour to music manager Shep Gordon. The industry mogul, who is the subject of Myers' film Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon, picked up the Maverick Award.
Other stars set for honours during the festival include 12 Years A Slave actress Lupita Nyong'o, the recipient of the Rainmaker Award, Evan Rachel Wood (Nova Award), and Joe Manganiello (Triple Threat Award).
Wood made her first public appearance since splitting from her husband Jamie Bell when she attended the festival's opening night reception on Tuesday.
Mike Myers' directorial debut became a star-studded affair when he reached out for celebrity feedback on legendary music manager Shep Gordon. The Austin Powers star stepped behind the camera to make a documentary about his pal, who has represented some of the world's biggest stars, and Gordon's past and present clients and friends jumped at the chance to be a part of the tribute.
Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon features anecdotes from Alice Cooper, Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone and Myers himself, who calls Gordon "the nicest person I've ever met, hands down".
And Douglas adds, "I have told Shep things I haven't told anybody, not even my wife."
Director Lee Daniels has pulled out of plans to take part in an in-depth interview at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York due to a scheduling conflict. The Precious filmmaker had been due to sit down with U.S. newswoman Robin Roberts to discuss his career ups and downs as part of the Tribeca Talks: Directors Series on Friday (18Apr14), but the event has since been cancelled.
A statement from festival organisers reads: "Because of an unanticipated schedule conflict, Lee Daniels regretfully has to cancel his appearance on Friday, April 18.
"We apologize for this change, refunds will be submitted to those who purchased a ticket to attend Tribeca Talks: Directors Series with Lee Daniels and Robin Roberts."
The Tribeca Talks series will also feature interviews with Ron Howard, Kevin Spacey, Michael Douglas and Shep Gordon.

Mike Myers has scrapped an appearance at the Miami International Film Festival in Florida on Tuesday (11Mar14) as he prepares for the imminent arrival of his second child. The Shrek star was set to make an appearance at the event to speak about his documentary Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon, about the hell-raising music manager behind Alice Cooper and Jimi Hendrix.
However, the funnyman has now decided to stay in New York to look after his heavily pregnant wife Kelly, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
Shep Gordon himself and Miami Heat basketball team boss Pat Riley will now attend a question and answer session in Myers' place.
Reunited rockers Black Sabbath were triple winners at the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour awards in London on Thursday night (14Nov13), but terminally ill Wilko Johnson was the event's hero. The 66-year-old former Dr. Feelgood guitarist, who was told by doctors that he would not live past October (13) after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer earlier this year (13), took to the stage to collect the night's Innovator Award and joked, "I'm supposed to be dead now."
The rocker, who hopes to have time to record one more album with The Who star Roger Daltrey, told the audience at the ceremony that he has never felt more "vividly alive" after accepting his latest award from fellow musician Jimmy Page at the London Roundhouse.

Funnyman Mike Myers is to make his directorial debut by taking charge of a new documentary about talent manager Shep Gordon. The Austin Powers star will also produce Supermensch.
Myers and Gordon have a long history dating back to Wayne's World in 1991 when they feuded over the use of an Alice Cooper song on the soundtrack, but they have become close friends.
Myers says, "I met Shep Gordon in 1991 on the set of Wayne's World. I thought he was a perfect combination of Brian Epstein, Marshall McLuhan and Mr. Magoo. I've been trying to get Shep to agree to let me make a movie about him for 10 years. Last year he finally said yes. I loved him like a brother before we started making this film, and now having sifted through his life and his legacy, I love him even more."
Gordon has managed the careers of Cooper, Blondie, Luther Vandross and Raquel Welch, among others.
Myers' film will feature interviews with Cooper, Michael Douglas, Sylvester Stallone and Willie Nelson, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The couple exchanged vows on the Hawaiian island on Saturday (28Nov09) at the home of Hollywood music and talent manager Shep Gordon, reports People.com.
They were joined by 75 family members and close friends, including Arnold's funnyman Dax Shepard, who served as the actor's best man.
The newlyweds met through mutual friends in April 2008 and were engaged in March (09) at Arnold's 50th birthday party.
Arnold spent a year single after ending his six-year marriage to Shelby Roos in August 2008. He was also married to make-up artist Julie Champnella and famously wed comedic actress Roseanne Barr.
