MUMBAI: Elizabeth Taylor, Jennifer Aniston and Maggie Smith have been picked up amongst those to be honoured next month at the 2011 Women‘s Image Network (WIN) Awards.
Amongst the rest are names like Jane Lynch, philanthropist Suzanne Fleisher Roberts, mother of Comcast chairman and CEO Brian Roberts, Temple Grandin, Glee, Made in Dagenham and Secretariat and actresses Diane Lane, Sally Hawkins, Susan Sarandon and Selena Gomez.
WIN founder Phyllis Stuart said that Taylor is being honored for her "artistic genius and her HIV/AIDS activism." The two-time Oscar-winning actress agreed to be honored but is ailing and might not be able to attend the 18 January event in Santa Monica.
Presented since 1993, the WIN awards celebrate film, television and advertising artistes who "create dimensional female media images which shape positive public opinion about the value of women and girls."
