List of Hollywood's Most Powerful Women Revealed
December 05, 2012
The Hollywood Reporter has unveiled its annual list of Top 100 Women in Entertainment and ET was on the red carpet to speak to some of the honorees.
During the breakfast ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hotel, actress Diane Keaton also received the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award -- which is named after the former actress and film studio executive who remains one of the most powerful and connected women in Hollywood.
Among the stars to stop by the red carpet to share their thought on being a successful woman in the entertainment world were stand-up comedian/reality star Kathy Griffin, The Office star Mindy Kaling and attorney/political activist Sandra Fluke. We also spoke with THR's No. 1 most powerful woman in Hollywood, Anne Sweeney, who serves as co-chairman of Disney Media Networks and president of Disney/ABC Television Group.
Sweeney -- who has now received the top honor for the third year in a row, had a word of advice for young women just entering the business. "Don't do it unless you really, really love it. Because if you love it you're going to spend the time, you're going to spend the energy, you're going to meet and get to work with amazing people, and you're going to have a great life."
Also once again making this year's Power 100 list was Linda Bell Blue, Executive Producer of Entertainment Tonight and The Insider.
