LOS ANGELES: Actress Laura Linney, the female cast members of TV drama “Mad Men” and directors Sofia Coppola and George Lucas were named on Monday as winners of Hollywood’s annual Crystal and Lucy Awards, which honour women’s achievement in film. The Women in Film organisation, which promotes gender parity in the historically male-dominated film business, will honour winners in six award categories at a fundraiser in Beverly Hills in June. Linney, 49, best known for her Oscar-nominated performance in the 2007 film “The Savages,” will receive the award for Excellence in Film. Five “Mad Men” actresses, Christina Hendricks, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, Jessica Paré and Kiernan Shipka, will be honoured with the Excellence in Television award. Each actress plays a character that defines the changing gender roles in the 1960s United States portrayed in the series.–Reuters
