Heigl Chosen As ShoWest’s ‘Star’


Katherine Heigl will be honored as Female Star of the Year at the upcoming ShoWest Awards Gala 2010 on March 18. Heigl, who has recently starred in The Ugly Truth and 27 Dresses, will appear in the romantic comedy Killers with Ashton Kutcher this June. "Her comedic timing and flair for acting are showcased in each of her roles and have captivated audiences around the globe,” ShoWest managing director Robert Sunshine said. Heigl, who once took herself out of contention for an Emmy because she didn’t feel she deserved it, apparently feels she is deserving of a Star of the Year award that is given in March. [HR]
