SCHEDULE SET: The Santa Barbara International Film Festival announced its line-up a few days back, and if we thought James Franco making an appearance was the end-all, be-all, we just had to wait. Wait. James Franco is the end-all, we can all be certain of that, but in addition to his Royal End-All-ness there are several other things going down at the 11-day festival, including a Virtuosos Award for Hailee Steinfeld, who should definitely be getting all kinds of awardy attention for her role in "True Grit."
OH, AND JOHN HAWKES, TOO: Santa Barbara International Film Festival seems intent on trotting out all our favorite actors for various accolades, and we expect some of your favorite actors, too. You can check out the full rundown of Virtuosos that will be handed out, and the films on the schedule, here. The festival opens on Thursday, Jan. 27.
