The Beverly Hilton grand ballroom in Los Angeles had an old girl’s club feel on Thursday night as Women in Film’s Crystal + Lucy Awards honored Annette Bening, Nina Tassler, Pamela Fryman, Reed Morano and 2011 Women In Film Max Mara Face of the Future award winner Katie Holmes.


Many of the guests had either worked together or known one another for decades, or in Tassler and Geena Davis’ case, attended college together. Host Melissa McCarthy gamely kept things moving with song and dance numbers in between ladies piling on praise for one another (Bening didn’t forget to thank “my main man in film” Warren Beatty).


The youngest actress in the room, Elle Fanning, called the event “so inspiring because I look up to these women.” The evening was dedicated to the late producer Laura Ziskin, and presenter Pandora (jewelry, they were a presenting sponsor) also gave a posthumous humanitarian award to Elizabeth Taylor.
