The Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson is set to be recognised as Hollywood's top emerging talent at an upcoming Las Vegas film convention.
The 19 year old has more than 20 film credits to his name, and he's been unveiled as the recipient of the Breakthrough Performer of the Year award at the annual CinemaCon convention on 26 April (12).
CinemaCon's Managing Director Mitch Neuhauser says, "With an already impressive resume of films under his belt, Hutcherson is one of the most accomplished young actors of his time. With the release of The Hunger Games, Hutcherson is poised to take the movie world by storm."
Hutcherson follows in the footsteps of Gossip Girl star Blake Lively, who landed the honour last year (11).
