LA non-profit Women in Film, an organization committed to galvanizing support and visibility for women in the entertainment industry, has unveiled the winners for the 2013 Crystal and Lucy Awards. Honors will be given at a benefit gala on June 12 at the Beverly Hilton.

Laura Linney, most recently seen opposite Bill Murray in "Hyde Park on Hudson," will receive the Crystal Award for excellence in film. The Lucy Award for excellence in television will go collectively to the female cast of AMC's 'Mad Men': Christina Hendricks, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, Jessica Pare and Kiernan Shipka.

Four additional prizes go to George Lucas, Sofia Coppola -- whose "Bling Ring" screens at Cannes this year -- and 16-year-old Hailee Steinfeld, of "True Grit" and the upcoming "Romeo and Juliet," who is Women in Film's Max Mara Face of the Future. Rachel Morrison, cinematographer of the Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner 'Fruitvale Station,' will receive the Kodak Vision Award.

Last year's winners included Viola Davis, Chloe Grace Moretz and Christina Applegate. In years' past, Women in Film has honored many significant women in entertainment, from Lucille Ball -- the Lucy Award's namesake -- to Meryl Streep and Annette Bening. Women in Film president Cathy Schulman recently represented the organization at the DGA Women's Summit
