Palm Springs International Film Awards will honor Lady Gaga.

The awarding body announced it is giving Gaga the icon award for her performance in House of Gucci.

According to Variety, Festival chairman Harold Matzner praised Gaga for her talent, spanning across categories.

“To many, Lady Gaga is an icon through her music, but she continues to impress audiences with her iconic acting roles,” Matzner said in a statement. “Following her memorable performance in A Star Is Born, Lady Gaga yet again raises the bar in her portrayal of Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci, the shocking true story of the family behind the Italian fashion empire. For this tour-de-force performance, it is our honor to present the icon award to Lady Gaga.”
