What do you get when some of the most amazing women in Hollywood come together for one night only? For the 22nd Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards, held on Monday night at the Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on Monday, Kate Winslet, Carey Mulligan, Alicia Vikander, Amy Schumer, Ava Duvernay, and Meryl Streep, were all honored with trophies in addition to their magazine covers. Shailene Woodley, who walked her first red carpet in months to honor her Divergent co-star Winslet, Zoe Kravitz and her boyfriend Twin Shadow, Nina Dobrev, Mary J. Blige, and Johnson’s entire family — Tippi Hedren, Melanie Griffith, and Stella Banderas — were all in the audience.
Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham doesn’t take “no” for an answer. In her early years, the singer-actress was running late for a Fanta soda call-back (to be one of the Fantanas), and the casting office told her not to bother. “I started crying, and I said, ‘No!’” Graham tells our own Nick Axelrod in this episode of “I Yahoo’d Myself.” “I said, ‘You guys are making a huge mistake. I’m the girl! I’m the girl, and I’m coming right now!’” She booked the job. (And no, she doesn’t get free Fanta for life, in case you’re wondering.)
