I am delighted to bring you some of the highlights from Vanessa Williams being honored with one of the the 2010 Muse Awards, from New York Women In Film And Television, which took place on December 8th at the New York Hilton. The gala luncheon is the highlight of the holiday season in the entertainment industry in New York.
Vanessa Williams (pictured above)
A multi-faceted performer who has received Grammy, Emmy and Tony nominations for her work as a singer and actress. She can currently be seen on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” where she is stirring things up as Renee Perry, Lynette’s former college friend and sorority sister.
The Muse Awards, NYWIFT‘s annual gala holiday luncheon, celebrates the vision and achievements of women who work in the entertainment industry. Each year, remarkable and accomplished women are honored with this prestigious award. It is NYWIFT’s flagship fundraising event – a highlight of the New York City holiday season in the entertainment industry – and is attended by an enthusiastic audience of 1200 leading executives from every major studio, broadcast and cable network, and film production facility.
One of the women that fostered Ms. Williams entertainment aspirations was Eartha Kitt , “the fierces Cat Woman there ever was in Batman!” she states.
