Last night the Santa Barbara International Film Festival gave out the "Outstanding Performers of the Year" award to a pair of A-listers.

But only one of them showed up to the event.

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver were the award winners; and only Driver was able to attend the film festival.

Johansson was too sick to make it.

While some fans were upset--one fan that traveled from Virginia was more understanding.

"You know if she is sick, we'd rather have her be healthy for the SAGs [Screen Actors Guild Awards] which is really important for her and her Oscar campaign."

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival is still in full swing, though. Screenings and panels will continue on through next week. Closing night of the festival is January 25.
