Muse Awards honors femmes

Danes, Baranski, Stewart lauded

New York Women in Film and Television is doing what it does best on Wednesday, celebrating women in the industry, by honoring Claire Danes, Christine Baranski and Martha Stewart at the 31st annual Muse Awards for Vision and Achievement.

Danes was chosen for her body of work, notably her recent work in the Showtime drama series “Homeland” and HBO telepic “Temple Grandin.” Baranski will also be feted for her career achievements, including “The Good Wife,” which gave her a homefield advantage as the CBS drama lenses in Gotham. Marcie Bloom, co-founder and co-prexy of Sony Pictures Classics, and Nadine Schramm, prexy of Budd Enterprises, are also honorees.

NYWIFT, which has about 2,000 members representing the many faces of the New York-based entertainment biz, is striving to achieve equality in the industry. Although there has been notable progress for femmes in recent years — in disparate areas from the raunchy- comedy success of “Bridesmaids” to director Kathryn Bigelow’s Oscar win for “The Hurt Locker” — there is still much work to be done, says Terry Lawler, NYWIFT’s executive director.

“It seems like for years every once in a while some woman — through gargantuan efforts — has been able to make a film and then it doesn’t seem to level the playing field,” Lawler says. “We’re not where we want to be yet.”
