Actress Jenna Elfman who will return to TV next season as the First Lady in the comedy 1600 Penn will be the host of the annual Crystal + Lucy Awards. If I lived in LA I would so be at this event supporting the work of Women in Film. It's one of the rare occasions to celebrate women in the business.
It looks like it will be a great evening. Meryl Streep will be honoring Viola Davis with the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film. Chloe Grace Moretz will receive the Max Mara Face of the Future Award (but we all know she is literally kicking ass in the present.) Bonnie Hammer who is the Chairman of NBCU Cable Entertainment and Cable Studios will receive the Lucy Award for Excellence in Television. Anette Haellmigk who shot Big Love will be presented with the Kodak Vision Award by Bill Paxton, and Ed O'Neill will present his former TV daughter Christina Applegate with the The Norma Zarky Humanitarian Award.
The women who run the divisions of Fox Studios -- Emma Watts, Elizabeth Gabler, Nancy Utley, Claudia Lewis and Vanessa Morrison Murchison -- will also be honored.
It promises to be a great evening and the money supports all the educational and philanthropic programs of Women in Film.
All these awards are significant and impressive and are worthy of note.
If you have a couple of hundred dollars for a good cause where you can mingle with stars who give a shot about women, this is your place. Tickets here.
