Hargitay, Liu among winners of femme-centric award

Actresses Mariska Hargitay and Lucy Liu, filmmaker Lisa F. Jackson and We TV topper Kim Martin have been tapped to receive honors in the 32nd annual round of the Muse Awards from New York Women in Film and Television.

Jackson has been making docs for 30 years, with her most recent credit, “Sex Crimes Unit,” airing on HBO. Martin, meanwhile, oversees all activities of We TV and also has expanded the net’s original programming to include shows such as “Braxton Family Values.”

Luncheon ceremony is set for Dec. 13 at the New York Hilton in midtown Manhattan.
