Jake, Mariah, and Ben! Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes and in honor of this weekend's Palm Springs Film Festival, we've rounded up the most memorable star-studded moments from the event in today's PopSugar Rush! Jamie Fox told me I should get up here and sing, fever night fever night fever..." It was great seeing Jake Gyllenhaal let loose at the podium in 2006, singing "Night Fever" as he accepted the Desert Palm Achievement Award. "And please forgive me because I'm a little bit... yeah (laughs)" Mariah Carey made a much buzzed about speech in 2010 when she pointed out she was a tad tipsy while taking her trophy. "I have been trying to get my wife to call me the Chairman for years. I think tonight might be my night."

This year, the Chairman's Award will go to George Clooney. Brad Pitt will is being honored with the Desert Palm Achievement Actor Award.
