According to WIN founder, Phyllis Stuart, While it’s glamorous to walk a red carpet, The WIN Awards are less about awards and more about media advocacy. That said, our diverse 2010 nominee list shows that women are able to express richness and depth at any age and that their value transcends their beauty or the number of candles on their birthday cake. This year, The WIN Awards uniquely demonstrate that Girls Are Great From Nine To Ninety as our youngest nominee, Joey King was nine years old when filming Ramona And Beezus, and as our most senior female, our Lifetime Achievement Honoree, Suzanne Roberts, is nearly 90 years old. By supporting The WIN Awards, which celebrate film and television artists who create dimensional, female media images, you help advance positive public opinion about the value of women and girls.
That said, Cimorelli were ideal and stellar musical performers at The WIN Awards 2010. This singing sensation consists of six, smiling sisters who blend their voices in perfect unison as they perform today’s pop hits in an a capella style. In April, 2010 Universal Records signed this stellar sister act to the delight of these lifetime collaborators who are: Christina (20), Katherine (18), Lisa (17), Amy (15), Lauren (12), and Dani (10).
Since 1993, Women’s Image Network (WIN) has produced The WIN Awards to celebrate men and women who promote gender parity through creativity and leadership. The WIN Awards celebrate those who create dimensional female portrayals in film, television, advertising and interactive media. For more information, visit: http://thewinawards.com.
