Salma Hayek wins an EW.com Award

FOR ”Frida”

WHY? It’s hard to believe so many actresses were competing to wear excess facial hair. Jennifer Lopez, Laura San Giacomo, Hayek, and even Madonna have considered Frida Kahlo biopics over the years. But in 2000 only Lopez and Hayek were in the final round. The Mexican firebrand smoked the competition by stepping up as a producer, recruiting Miramax to foot the bill, signing Broadway director Julie Taymor to direct, and asking a cavalcade of stars (Ashley Judd, Antonio Banderas, Edward Norton, Geoffrey Rush) to provide cameos. J. Lo never stood a chance. She’d better hope Salma doesn’t set her sights on Ben.
