On Tuesday night, the Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards took place in Beverly Hills, with kudos going out to a handful of strong, interesting ladies in Hollywood. Salma Hayek received an award, as did director Diane English and the cast of her upcoming remake of The Women. In addition, Ginnifer Goodwin received the Face of the Future Award, which was handed to Emily Blunt at last year's ceremony.
I personally wouldn't argue with this at all. I think Goodwin is wonderful on Big Love, and she appears to steal the show in the trailer for He's Just Not That Into You. She's got an energy and magnetism onscreen that I find appealing, and I'm curious to see her do more varied projects.
What other young actresses would you give this award to? I'm slightly surprised it wasn't handed to Ellen Page, simply because she seems to have been the favored female rising star of the year. I might have honored America Ferrera if it were up to me, or Zooey Deschanel. I also think Brittany Snow and Blake Lively are young ladies we'll want to keep our eyes on. What do you think? Is Ginnifer the best lady for this award?
