“American Hustle” is the new “Argo.” The cast of “Hustle” — which was made around Boston last year — picked up the Ensemble Performance Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival over the weekend. (Ben Affleck’s “Argo” won the same prize last year). Three of the film’s stars, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, and Jeremy Renner, were at the ceremony with director David O. Russell to pick up the honor. Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t there; her next “Hunger Games” film is already in production. . . . Kingston-based actor Chris Cooper was named best supporting actor in the AARP’s 13th Annual Movies for Grownups Awards for his role in “August: Osage County.” Cooper stars with Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, and Medford’s own Julianne Nicholson. Other local mentions on the AARP list include “American Hustle,” which won “Best Time Capsule,” and the Massachusetts-made “The Way, Way Back,” which was filmed around Wareham and won best comedy. The AARP hosts a gala for its winners in February.
