Hillary Clinton Compares Herself To ‘Wonder Woman’ At The Women In Film’s Crystal + Lucy Awards

Clinton was honoring Elizabeth Banks

Tuesday night at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, actor/director Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, The 40-Year-Old Virgin) was presented with the Excellence in Film award at the Women In Film’s Crystal + Lucy Awards. The annual celebration honors women in communications and the media, but a politician ended up having one of the most memorable moments of the night.


In a video message honoring Banks, Hillary Clinton drew a comparison between herself and the current queen of the box office, Wonder Woman. “No I haven’t seen Wonder Woman yet, but I’m going to, in part because it’s directed by the fabulous Patty Jenkins,” Clinton said. “But something tells me that a movie about a strong, powerful woman fighting to save the world from a massive international disaster is right up my alley.” Clinton would also honor Banks by calling her “a special person, onscreen and off.” Michelle Obama also made an appearance at the gala via video message honoring Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross, who took home the Lucy Award for Excellence in Television. “You are brilliant, you’re hilarious, you’re one of the most talented actors I know and your character on Black-ish, Bow, is an inspiration for folks all across this country. And the work you’re doing offscreen is just as remarkable.” Ross works closely with Aviva Family and Children Services in Los Angeles and the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. She was honored by The Los Angeles Urban League as Volunteer of the Year in 2004.
