The 20th annual Glamour Women of the Year Awards honored a lot of famous ladies Monday night.
Outside Carnegie Hall, Elisabeth Moss opined that the mag should give her “Mad Men” character, Peggy Olson, a trophy: “She represents female empowerment. If it wasn’t for women like her, we wouldn’t be able to have this event.”
Others took the gala a little less seriously. After accepting her award from Oprah Winfrey, Julia Roberts turned jokester. “What the hell is this?” she asked, holding the multi-heart shaped award. “I mean, all night I’ve just been thinking: Is it a brooch? For the hair? Must have something to do with women. Or glamour. We’ll have a few drinks and figure it out.”
Cher accepted her Glamour trophy from “Burlesque” co-star Stanley Tucci, then proceeded to compare her life to being on a bumper car, among other things. “I feel like such an idiot watching all these people,” she said. “Everyone has done something and all I’ve done is be funny and get paid a lot of money.” Some bumper car. – — Peggy Truong
