Julianne Hough To Receive CinemaCon Award

Julianne Hough is making an impression with her film work. The singer, dancer, and actress has been tapped to receive the CinemaCon Rising Star of 2011 Award from the National Association of Theater Owners. Hough made her big screen debut in a supporting role in the film "Burlesque," which hit theaters last fall. She's starring as Ariel in the remake of the 1980s film "Footloose," which is slated to open in theaters in October. A CinemaCon rep says Julianne has a promising film career ahead of her, which is why she was chosen for the honor. Hough will receive her prize at the CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Award ceremony, which will cap off the 2011 CinemaCon. The four-day event will take place in Las Vegas from March 28th through the 31st.
