Update: "And the Winner Is" Special Award Season Exhibition Presented by the Hollywood Museum and The Envelope

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2010) -  Here's the perfect recipe to celebrate awards season: see the Asian silk jacket Meryl Streep wore while dining in a French café in "Julie & Julia," the white tuxedo Brad Pitt donned as he toasted Nazis in "Inglourious Basterds" and see the rugged jacket and jeans worn by Chris Pine as a young, rebellious James Kirk riding a motorcycle in "Star Trek."

These are among the many costumes and props on display in "And the Winner Is," an exhibition cosponsored by the Hollywood Museum and The Envelope (www.theenvelope.com), the awards insider from the Los Angeles Times. Honoring the magic of movies, television and music excellence at the height of the awards season, the exhibit will be on display the end of April.

"Each studio contributed to this years' exhibit which features items from some of the top contenders for Oscars, Golden Globes, guild and critics' awards, including '(500) Days of Summer,' and 'The Young Victoria,'" says museum president and founder Donelle Dadigan. "We are excited to feature items from both Best Actress nominees, Meryl Streep's from 'Julie and Julia' and Sandra Bullock's from 'The Blind Side.' We also have Brad Pitt's costumes from the Best Picture Nominee 'Inglourious Basterds.' Our exhibit also will include the year's most popular films such as 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' and 'Twilight: New Moon.'"

"And the Winner Is," was organized in part by guest curator Tom O'Neil, The Envelope's "Gold Derby" (http://goldderby.latimes.com/) blogger, and also features a look at red carpet fashion over the years with dresses on display from Sharon Stone, Kate Winslet, Lucille Ball and Shirley Temple. The Hollywood Museum features current award nominees and winners as well as a look at Hollywood's rich history. Also on view in the exhibit are items from top award races in years past, including costumes from Golden Globe winner "Ben-Hur," which won best picture in1959, Sylvester Stallone's boxing gloves and signed script from the Academy Award winning 'Rocky' and Sylvester Stallone's Worst Actor of the Century "Razzie Award," the 1952 Writers Guild of America award earned by "High Noon"; Academy Award winner Vivien Leigh's gown from the Best Picture "Gone with the Wind" and props and Hannibal Lector's mask from 'Silence of the Lambs' (Oscars for Best Picture, Director, Actor and Actress); Judy Garland's gown from 'A Star Is Born' (Golden Globe, Best Actress); costumes worn by Golden Globe winners Tom Cruise and Marilyn Monroe.

"There is something for everyone of all ages at the Hollywood Museum. This is where you can discover the glamour of old Hollywood from Elvis to Marilyn Monroe and see costumes and red carpet fashion from Hollywood's rising stars from films like 'Twilight: New Moon,'" states Dadigan.
