Actress Brooklyn Decker will pick up the Rising Star Award at the 2019 Texas Film Awards, the Austin Film Society (AFS) announced today.
The annual event will take place March 7 at the AFS Cinema, with a red carpet followed by an reception, dinner and awards ceremony in AFS Cinema’s Event Hall.
Decker started her acting career with a supporting role in the Adam Sandler comedy, “Just Go With It,” also starring Jennifer Aniston. She appeared in such movies as “Battleship,” “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” and the SAG and Golden Globe Award-nominated Netflix series “Grace & Frankie.” She also appeared as “Kara” in fellow Austinite Andrew Bujalski’s totally excellent “Support the Girls.”
Decker co-founded the fashion platform Finery with Whitney Casey in early 2017. Her charity work extends to organizations including the Special Olympics, Sierra Club and the Andy Roddick Foundation.
The full program for the Texas Film Awards and additional honorees will be announced in the coming months.
The Texas Film Awards raises funds for the Austin Film Society’s year-round artistic and educational programs. AFS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by filmmaker Richard Linklater with the mission to make Austin synonymous with great film.
