Roberts to receive Hollywood honour

Julia Roberts will pick up an award for her performance in August: Osage County

Julia Roberts is set to get a prize for her performance in August: Osage County at the Hollywood Film Awards.

The Oscar-winning actress has been singled out to receive the Hollywood Supporting Actress Award at the glitzy ceremony at the Beverly Hilton on October 21, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The 45-year-old follows in the footsteps of last year's winner Amy Adams and actresses such as Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter, Sandra Bullock, Julianne Moore and Susan Sarandon.

Hollywood Film Awards' founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu said: "It is a privilege to honour Julia Roberts for her brilliant and passionate performance in August: Osage County. Julia continues to shine as one of Hollywood's most gifted actresses."

She stars alongside Meryl Streep, Ewan McGregor, Benedict Cumberbatch and Juliette Lewis in John Wells' big-screen adaptation of Tracy Letts' Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name.

The dark comedy, which counts George Clooney and Harvey Weinstein among its producers, premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and will be released in December.

After making her big-screen breakthrough in Mystic Pizza in 1988, Julia - who won her Oscar for her performance as Erin Brockovich - made her name starring in romantic comedies like Pretty Woman, Notting Hill, My Best Friend's Wedding and Eat Pray Love.

Her next role is in Ryan Murphy's drama The Normal Heart, which also stars Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons and Taylor Kitsch.
