The Palm Springs International Film Festival is a beautiful and fun stop on the march through the exhilarating awards season, and celebrities the world over congregated in the gorgeous desert community to celebrate film and film culture.
Stars from this year's most acclaimed films hit the red carpet, shaking hands with fans, talking to the press, and generally expressing their gratitude and honor at their awards and recognition.
But for some stars, the press line can get a tiny bit tedious, and as the stars end up commiserating, a party atmosphere grows between these celebrated actors, many of whom had worked together in the past and were seeing each other for the first time in quite a while.
Actors Tom Hanks, of Saving Mr. Banks, and Sandra Bullock, of Gravity, had their own little party going as they goofed off and teased each other on the red carpet.
As Hanks discussed the jovial nature of the crowd, the beautiful Bullock, decked out in a stunning bright pink ensemble, slowly crept up behind him to crash the interview, and the back-and-forth they shared was deliriously fun.
The entire night was exciting for everyone getting an award, presenting an award, or generally just gearing up for what looks to be a very tight race towards the Oscars.
Check out the video for more from the big stars of the night, including Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell, Idris Elba, and Ewan McGregor just to name a few.
