Celebrities, music icons honor Jane Campion, Penélope Cruz, and Bruce Paltrow at MoMA event

Kate Moss, Emma Stone, Sarah Paulson, and Jamie Dornan were among the celebrities present at the 2018 MoMA Film Benefit. The event, presented by Italian luxury-goods manufacturer Salvatore Ferragamo, saluted Jane Campion, Penélope Cruz, and Bruce Paltrow, all Oscar-winning actresses who are internationally known for their contributions to film.

MoMA Chief Curator, International Film Collection, Manuela Meier presented the 2019 Tribute Award to Lady Gaga, who has become one of the world’s most sought-after music and film artists in recent years. The singer, who wore a tailored black and white suit, said, “MoMA has always played a crucial role in what I do. I am a young artist, without a studio or a board, and if MoMA hadn’t offered me this space and the chance to grow and explore my art form in an environment of artists, other artists and scholars, I don’t know where I would be today.”

The evening also included a live performance from Rockwell, the Los Angeles-based alternative band, featuring Jon Brion, a Grammy-winning and Oscar-nominated composer. The band performed “3,” “Dog Days Are Over,” and “Leave Your Sleep Behind,” all previously released albums from their latest album.
