Katherine wins Female Star gong
Katherine Heigl is being honoured with a gong for Female Star Of The Year.
ShoWest cinema bosses have been so impressed with the Grey's Anatomy actress' roles in movies such as The Ugly Truth, Knocked Up and 27 Dresses that they have chosen her for the prize.
"Her comedic timing and flair for acting are showcased in each of her roles and has captivated audiences around the globe," Robert Sunshine, ShoWest co-managing director, told Variety.
Katherine's next big screen outing will be in Killers alongside Ashton Kutcher.
Vanessa Hudgens and her Beastly co-star Alex Pettyfer will be honoured as rising stars with the ShoWest 2010 Female and Male Star Of Tomorrow awards.
The awards will be presented at the Las Vegas banquet on March 18.
