Are you sitting down? Hope so, because an eclectic array of celebrities — dare we say dizzyingly eclectic — will receive special awards from a variety of special award ceremonies in the coming months. The honorees include established Hollywood legends like Kirk Douglas and Robert De Niro, as well as up-and-comers like Emily Blunt, and even the creators of “The Simpsons.” It’s a heck of a list, so I suggest making notes as you read.

De Niro will actually receive two awards at the end of 2009. First up is the Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Gala Awards Ceremony, which will bestow the “Hollywood Actor Award” on him for his upcoming film “Everybody’s Fine” on Oct. 26 at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. De Niro is the latest addition to the Gala Awards’ lineup, which we mentioned in a recent post.

De Niro will then need more room on his mantle on Nov. 5, when the British Academy of Film and Television/Los Angeles (or BAFTA/LA, as it’s known to its friends), honors him with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film. He’ll be in good company at that event, which takes place at the Hyatt Regency Plaza Hotel; also receiving awards that night are Hollywood icon Kirk Douglas, thinking ladies’ romantic icon Colin Firth, “Slumdog Millionaire” director Danny Boyle, and “Young Victoria” star Emily Blunt. Oh, and Stephen Fry will host, so expect the bon mots to flow like wine.

Speaking of U.K. institutions, television host and interviewer David Frost, whose small screen sparring with ex-President Richard Nixon was the subject of the recent feature “Frost/Nixon,” will be presented with the International Emmy Founders Award during the International Emmys on Nov. 23. The awards, which showcase excellence in television production outside the U.S., will also feature an appearance by Nixon’s former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger (an amusing touch of coincidence, that), who will present the Directorate Award to Markus Schacter, head of the German public-service channel ZDF.

Emily Blunt is featured among Elle’s Women In Hollywood issue. I’ve added a cover of the magazine to the gallery. She looks breathtaking!

Recently engaged (to John Krasinski, no less!) Emily Blunt also got a spot of gorgeous glory on Elle’s cover, saying, “I love playing character parts, because I’m not pigeonholed into trying to remain young forever to play the ingénue or romantic lead.” After catching an eyeful of Emily in our exclusive look at “The Young Victoria,” and loving her roles in films from “The Devil Wears Prada” to “Sunshine Cleaning,” we can agree that the young Brit is far from being pigeonholed.

It’s not often I get to play gossip columnist. That’s probably a good thing, because it’s been my experience that most tabloid journalists are generally only a rung or two above pond scum on the evolutionary scale. But when some of my MTV News colleagues heard I would be chatting with “Devil Wears Prada” star Emily Blunt, they all had one request: “You gotta ask about her engagement to John Krasinski!”

For the uninitiated, John, of “Office” fame, slid a ring onto the finger of the beautiful British brunette Emily in August. My task, so it seemed, was to find out the dishy deets: How’d it happen? What does the ring look like? When are they getting hitched? And then I thought, “Hey, I’ve been dating a great girl for a while. Maybe I can get some engagement inspiration for these two Hollywood lovebirds! And maybe in the process Ms. Blunt will spill some of her own secrets!” Everybody wins! Read more…

It was part of the celebrity-portraits by photographer Roger Moenks that went under the hammer at the Beverly Wilshire last week.

The money collected was offered to UNICEF.

Hottie Sienna Miller’s image fetched 21,000 dollars, while Milla Jovovich’s was sold for 20,000 dollars, the New York post reports.

Also, portraits of Susan Sarandon, Marcia Cross, Helen Hunt, Lauren Hutton and Andie MacDowell grossed 15,000 dollars each.

A total sum of 224,000 was raised for the noble cause.
