James Franco Picks Up His Latest Honour at the Art of Elysium's Gala With Kirsten, Leighton, Nicole, and Rachel
Many of Hollywood's biggest stars headed out to LA's California Science Center LA last night for the annual Heaven Gala thrown by the Art of Elysium, the organisation dedicated to getting artists to volunteer their talents to help children battling serious medical conditions. James Franco was on hand to receive their Spirit of Elysium award for his dedication to the charity, and we snagged a minute with him on the red carpet before he headed inside for the cocktail hour — he confided that his preparation for hosting the Oscars with Anne Hathaway is going well. He's made the award season rounds after getting lots of critical love for his role in 127 Hours, but his personal favs of the year were The Town, Inception and I Am Love. A Rodarte-clad Kirsten Dunst and a Zac Posen-wearing Rachel Bilson also smiled for the cameras, while Nicole Richie experimented with a bold 20s look — check out Fab's picks for the top 20 outfits of the evening! Rachel was feeling under the weather, but she still turned out to lend her name to a cause she told us is very near to her heart. Brad Goreski made a dapper appearance, and he mentioned that he's been super busy jet-setting around the world working on his brand new styling gigs. Jesse Tyler Fergusson and Jennifer Love Hewitt shared about their excitement for tonight's Golden Globes, and True Blood hunk Joe Manganiello lovingly smiled for the cameras with his wife-to-be Audra Marie. Leighton Meester showed a little skin in her deep V sequined gown, but she had to skip out on the actual event, which included dinner and a Vogue-sponsored fashion show. Stay tuned for more pictures to come from inside, where Jake Gyllenhaal made a hot cameo!
Stars of the stage were honoured at the Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall in NYC last night. Catherine Zeta-Jones received the Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical award for A Little Night Music, topping off her exciting weekend following her CBE from the Queen. Her fellow British nominee Jude Law missed out on an award, and skipped the show in favour of a holiday in France with Sienna Miller and his kids. Daniel Radcliffe and Helen Mirren attended the ceremony, as did Cate Blanchett: do you love or hate her look?
Beyonce and Jay-Z were in the audience after their trip to the UK for the Isle of Wight Festival. Will Smith and Jada took to the stage to present an award, and and Katie Holmes gave Scarlett Johansson her gong for A View From the Bridge. Scarlett's costar Liev Schrieber watched her win alongside Naomi Watts. Glee's Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele performed for the crowd, and Denzel Washington was also honoured with an acting award.
It wasn't just country music stars at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville last night. Hayden Panettiere wore a sexy green dress with lacy cutouts, while Sheryl Crow wore a short white number. Taylor Swift straightened her hair and wore a funky dark red dress with a full skirt. Faith Hill looked elegant in her floor sweeping gown, while Carrie Underwood stood out in bright pink — she and Taylor were nominated for three gongs.
The show was hosted by Kid Rock who kicked off with a Kanye West joke. Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, and Carrie Underwood were the big winners — check out the whole list here. Keith thanked his wife Nicole Kidman who didn't walk the red carpet but was present at the ceremony, while Carrie told her fans they're "Awesome!" Keith also performed with John Mayer, who later compared his abs backstage with Jersey Shore's The Situation.
