Hunky young men delivered the Women in Film trophies Wednesday night. As past winners of Crystal Awards filed onto the stage to celebrate the organization's 40th birthday--from actresses Cloris Leachman, Diahann Carroll and Sharon Stone to producers Gale Anne Hurd and Marcia Nasatir, Universal co-chairman Donna Langley and director Martha Coolidge--studio pioneer Sherry Lansing spoke on video to her colleagues and asked them to take a minute to celebrate their achievements, accumulated power and progress, even though "I know we still have a long way to go," she said.
