Lucy presenters lined up

Stewart, Seymour, Roth to present Women in Film nods

Actor Patrick Stewart, whose roles range from Shakespeare to “Star Trek,” has signed on as a presenter at Women in Film’s Lucy Awards luncheon Saturday.

Stewart will present the organization’s Innovation in Television award to Kay Koplovitz, founder of USA Networks.

Jane Seymour will present a Lucy Award to Barbara Walters. Diahann Carroll also will be honored at the event, which Sheryl Lee Ralph, co-star of UPN’s “Moesha,” will emcee.

Jennifer Love Hewitt (“Party of Five”) will host a press conference preceding the awards luncheon.

Peter Roth, president of Fox Entertainment Group, will present WIF’s Founders Award to Bonny Door, a former WIF president and co-founder of the Lucy awards.

As a special tribute, Mallory Tarcher will accept a posthumous Lucy Award on behalf of her late mother, Shari Lewis, whose show she produced for 1-1/2 years. In addition, WIF and the Women in Film Foundation have created the Shari Lewis Scholarship, which will be awarded to a female undergraduate or graduate student whose talent and dedication to children’s television most exemplify Lewis’ work.

Among those who have accepted invitations to attend are Faith Ford (“Maggie Winters”), Jane Leeves (“Frasier”), Brooke Shields (“Suddenly Susan”), Mary Frann (“Newhart”) and model Kathy Ireland.

The Lucy Awards were established in 1994 by Joanna Kerns and the trustees of Lucille Ball’s estate.

For tickets to the 11 a.m. event at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel, call (310) 201-5033.
