Katie Holmes, Annette Bening Awarded As Women In Film [PHOTOS]

The nonprofit group honored the women Thursday at its annual Crystal and Lucy awards ceremony in Beverly Hills.

A slightly zombified looking Katie Holmes brought her parents along to a glitzy awards show last night. Accepting her award at Thursday’s event, Katie thanked her parents, who were in the audience, and husband Tom Cruise, “whose commitment to his work and family inspires me daily”.

In accepting her award, Annette Bening said she is “entering into a new phase” and “beginning again” and hinted at some interesting projects in the coming year.

Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy sang and danced as host of the fundraising event at the Beverly Hilton hotel, where Martin Sheen, Geena Davis, Neil Patrick Harris, Elle Fanning and Jenna Elfman were among the celebrity guests.

    I can see Annette Benning being nominated. She is a fantastic actress and has made a lot of great films. She is extremely gifted. But why was Katie Holmes given an award??? She is not a great actress (not since she was in her early 20′s and starting out anyway), nor has she truly made any films worth watching within the past 10 years. That doesn’t make sense unless she is banking on being Mrs. Tom Cruise. Personally, I would keep that under wraps because being married to him is just plain creepy and embarrassing. She also thanked him – I guess for ruining her career. Can’t see what else she would be thanking him for.
