Viola Davis and Nina Jacobson Honored at Hollywood Reporter’s Empowering Women in Entertainment Event

Awkwafina, Steve McQueen, Brian Tyree Henry, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ryan Coogler and Mandy Moore were among those on hand to toast the honorees.

Hollywood’s wonder women gathered Wednesday morning at Milk Studios to celebrate The Hollywood Reporter‘s Power 100 at the annual THR Women in Entertainment event, presented by Lifetime.

While it was drizzling on the red carpet, stars such as Brian Tyree Henry, Diane Warren and Mandy Moore sipped on green juice and coffee with Power List honorees Bonnie Hammer, Jennifer Salke and the executive of the year Dana Walden ahead of the VIP event that coincides with the publication of THR’s annual Women in Entertainment: Power 100, the definitive guide to the leading women in film and television. 

As guests like Widows director Steve McQueen and Gugu Mbatha-Raw enjoyed frittatas and various gluten-free pastries, Nanette comedian Hannah Gadsby opened the morning, saying, “There is nothing a comedian aspires to more than a breakfast gig.” She took her time to critique the power structure that led to the current state of Hollywood. “My issue is when good men talk about bad men, they always ignore the line in the sand,” she said. “Only good men get to draw that line, and all men believe they are good men. Guess what happens when all men get to draw that line — this world. The world where men do very bad things and believe in heart of hearts they are good because they haven’t crossed the line. Because they moved the line for their own good. Women should be in control of that line, no question.”

Lynne Segall, THR executive vp and group publisher, stood at the podium to offer congratulations to the Power 100 and thank the event’s sponsors — American Airlines, Cadillac, Fiji Water, eOne, Loyola Marymount University
