The first star-studded film award ceremony of the New Year was literally something to sing about.While not an honoree himself, actor-producer Brad Pitt stole the spotlight with a singalong for a few moments Saturday night at the annual black-tie gala for the Palm Springs International Film Festival.Pitt is a producer of director Ava DuVernay's historical epic "Selma," in which Oyelowo portrays civil-rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The festival honored Oyelowo with its Breakthrough Performance Award for an actor.In his introduction, Pitt professed his admiration for Oyelowo – both as a colleague and friend – and, at one point, Pitt led the audience in a singalong with lyrics spinning around Oyelowo's often-mispronounced last name. Oyelowo actually did two photo sessions, the first with wife, actress Jessica Oyelowo, and three of their four children, the second with DuVernay. Both Oyelowo and DuVernay are nominated for Golden Globe awards, to be handed out next weekend in Beverly Hills.
