Women at the top
The Women in Film’s Crystal + Lucy Awards took place on Tuesday night at Los Angeles’ Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel. Guests of honour included Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock as well as Naomi Watts.
Sandra Bullock took to the the podium to accept her award and continue to raise awareness for gender equality: “Know that as women, if we do not reach out a hand to help, our fellow ladies have a steep climb up the corporate ladder [and they] will never know the true joys of success" she said.
Kidman was awarded her honour by fellow Australian and childhood friend, Watts: “It’s like my sister is giving me this award. We’ve known each other since we were teenagers,” she said. “We’re doing this tonight, but we’re also having a birthday party for me in a couple of nights. We do the work stuff and then we do the play stuff.”
Other honourees included Kate Mara, Warner Bros. executive Sue Kroll, 'Transparent' creator Jill Soloway, director Ava DuVernay, and ICM power agent Toni Howard. The dinner — presented by Max Mara, Tiffany & Co. and BMW — also saw the likes of Kristen Stewart, Laura Linney, Regina King, Teresa Palmer, Tessa Thompson, Stephanie Meyer, and Lake Bell in attendance.
