Fame is fickle, especially for women. And when you reach your 80’s, if you’re lucky, people want to dip you in bronze and stick you on a shelf somewhere. Legend or not.”
— Wallis Annenberg
BEVERLY, HILLS, CA, UNITED STATES, February 23, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Women's Image Network (WIN) proudly presents the esteemed winners of the 25th Annual Women's Image Awards, celebrating outstanding achievements in film and television that promote the value of women and girls.

The awards were presented on Wednesday evening in Beverly Hills during a two-hour program hosted by comedian Caroline Rhea. A few stellar presenters included Raven-Symoné, Rory Kennedy, Amber Stevens West, Amy Ziering and Chanel West Coast.

Wallis Annenberg presented The Living Legend Honoree Award to Ann-Margret and said,“Legend means you haven’t just shared a screen with Elvis Presley and Jack Nicholson and Jack Lemmon – you’ve dominated it. Fame is fickle, especially for women. And when you reach your 80’s, if you’re lucky, people want to dip you in bronze and stick you on a shelf somewhere. Legend or not,” She continued, “But why gather dust on a shelf, when you are still young and vital and ready to rock? Why go gentle into the good night, when you can ride your lavender Harley till sunrise and be your own damn woman?”

“The Women's Image Network Awards, since 1993, has been a beacon for gender equality in the media,” said Ann-Margret, The Living Legend Honoree. “Tonight, we celebrate not only the achievements of extraordinary women but also the transformative power of film and television to shape perceptions and inspire change. Film and television possess a unique ability to challenge stereotypes and cultivate empathy. As artists, we hold the brush that paints the
diverse tapestry of women's lives. It is a responsibility I've embraced throughout my career, choosing projects that celebrate the strength, resilience, and diversity of women.”

The evening was filled with powerful influences across television and film and other notables plus additional merits of recognition were given to Loretta Devine, The Lifetime Achievement Honoree and the Humanitarian Honoree, Regina K. Scully.

Founded by Phyllis Stuart in 1993, the Women's Image Network Awards have been a beacon of recognition for male and female artists dedicated to advancing positive portrayals of women in media.

“It was a privilege to celebrate our remarkable honorees: Ann-Margret, Loretta Devine and Regina K. Scully,” said Phyllis Stuart, WIN Awards Founder and producer. “All three women live remarkable lives shaped by kindness, grace, service and authenticity. Our nominees, winners and presenters are outstanding and Wallis Annenberg is a reminder to everyone how to live a life full of innovation and generosity.”
