Julia Roberts to receive Woman of the Decade award
Julia Roberts will be named Woman of the Decade at the Spike Guys Choice Awards.
The 48-year-old actress will receive the award at the 10th annual event, which will take place in Culver City, Los Angeles next month.
Other stars who will pick up awards at the ceremony include ‘Pitch Perfect’s Anna Kendrick, who will be accepting the Hot & Funny award, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, who will share the Guys of the Decade award and Kobe Bryant for Athlete of the Decade.
Gigi Hadid is set to follow in the footsteps of Kate Upton, Chrissy Teigen, Emily Ratajkowski, and Hannah Davis by picking up the Our New Girlfriend gong.
Meanwhile, last year’s ceremony was mired in controversy when Clint Eastwood made a joke about transgender reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner during the taping of the show.The 86-year-old filmmaker poked fun at the former Olympian – who was known as Bruce Jenner before her gender transition – while introducing Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to the stage at California’s Sony Pictures Studio, but the gag reportedly fell flat.
Clint compared the wrestler-turned-actor to former athletes who have become actors, “like Jim Brown and Caitlyn Somebody…”
However, the network axed the joke when the ceremony was broadcast on June 18.
David Schwarz, Spike TV senior vice president of communications, said after the taping: “We will remove the reference in the version that will air.”
