The two other winners of the Crystal Award were an overwhelmed Jennifer Lopez and songwriter Dianne Warren (Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing"). Maria Bello received "The MaxMara Award" for the "Face of the Future" and Geena Davis was given The Lucy Award, which is named for Lucille Ball. After accepting her award, Davis made a speech about the gender imbalance still going on in movies and television, saying it isn't getting better.
I think it has gotten a little better, hasn't it? Okay, so there being more female superhero roles isn't a great breakthrough, especially when they're in movies like Catwoman and Aeon Flux. I get it.
