The big winners included Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, cinematographer Petra Korner, Role Models star Elizabeth Banks, actress Holly Hunter, and the big winner of the night, Jennifer Aniston, who received The 2009 Crystal Award. Chelsea Handler presented the award to the Prada clad star with some hilarious comments about the stars not-so-successful love life. Handler announced the star while joking about her latest fizzled flame, saying, “Jen’s getting the Crystal Award for expanding the visibility of women in film, so thank you for that. You also stopped expanding the visibility of John Mayer and we really thank you for that!”

Aniston shared a laugh with Handler, and continued the joke in her acceptance speech, saying “I’m trying to be more careful than I have been in the past about the titles of movies I choose to be in. It’s funny — I kind of noticed a few years ago, there seems to be a strange parallel between the movies I’m doing and my life off-screen. It started with ‘The Good Girl,’ then of course ‘Rumor Has It,’ followed by ‘Derailed.’ Then there was ‘The Break Up.’ If any of you have a project entitled ‘Everlasting Love With A Stable Adult Male’  I’m at table 6 and my agents are at table 12!” Jen evoked a chorus of laughter from the guests in attendance and reminded us why we love this down-to-Earth girl so much!
