CinemaCon wrapped up with its star-studded Big Screen Achievement Awards ceremony at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas last night. Jennifer Garner wore a tight black dress to show off her postbaby body while accepting the female star of the year award in her second appearance of the week. Jennifer joined Johnny Depp for an event on Tuesday evening, though that time she choose a looser-fitting look. On stage, Jennifer joked about winning this award, saying:
"I told my mom the other day I was getting this award . . . and I was excited and feeling proud and thought she was going to be proud, and then there was this pause on the other end of the line. She said, 'Jennifer, do these people know you haven't worked in the last year?' I said, 'Yeah, I feel they probably know what I've been up to. I haven't stepped foot on a set. You are correct, mom.' She said, 'Can they take this back? Because every time I talk to you, you are breastfeeding, you are running carpool, you are on the library committee — you are not acting!' I said it's not all about the now, it's things you've done in the past or in the future, and she was like, 'Honey, you have a weird job.'"
Charlize Theron was also honored yesterday evening, after joining Kristen Stewart to promote Snow White and the Huntsman at the convention earlier in the day. Michelle Pfeiffer looked stunning in her own LBD to receive the cinema icon statue. Jeremy Renner and The Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson took home male star of the year and breakthrough star of the year, respectively.
CinemaCon has been going on since Monday and given press and movie theater owners sneak peeks at highly-anticipated upcoming movies like Snow White and the Huntsman and Battleship. The convention even brought out the first 60 seconds of the new adaptation of Les Misérables, which is apparently already earning very early award-season buzz.
