Awwwww, Clint Eastwood looks so happy at the Costume Design Guild Awards. They were honoring Deborah Hopper (second from left) and the man himself with their "Distinguished Collaborator" Award. (Many of the guilds like to honor directors outside their own profession at their particular ceremonies... but we like this joint award definition since films are such team efforts.)
This photo is giving me such 2003 flashbacks with Mystic River's Marcia Gay Harden and The Last Samurai's Ken Watanabe all snuggled up with Clint and Deborah.
Strangely Hopper has never been Oscar nominated despite working with such an Oscar magnetized director. Not even those cloche hats from Changeling won her a shortlist spot. She's been working with Clint since Space Cowboys (2000).
This year's winners, more photos, and a fun "Revenge" moment after the jump.
Jane Lynch hosted this year's event and you can see her pictured with Glee costumers Eyrich and Eve. The very cool woman behind all those great Dragon Tattoo fashions Trish Summerville is pictured with Rooney Mara.

Finally, the cast of Revenge was out in force at this event and I can't get enough of this particular photo and the show memory it pulls back into mind.
Let that smile be a reminder of just how much I despise you; that everytime I hug you? The warmth you feel is my hatred burning through."
Oh god I love Revenge so much. Don't you?
