Jennifer Lopez Entertains ShoWest
After a record-breaking year, actress-singer Jennifer Lopez has been named the ShoWest 2002 Female Star of the Year. J. Lo will be receiving her award at the exhibitors annual national convention on March 7 in Las Vegas.
Last year, Lopez became the first entertainer ever to have a number one movie and album on the same weekend, The Wedding Planner and J. Lo, respectively. Robert Sunshine, chairman of ShoWest organizer Sunshine Group Worldwide said of Lopez, 'With her record-breaking hits last year and her upcoming films, this looks to be a seminal year in what is an already remarkable career.'
In 2001, Lopez starred in both The Wedding Planner and Angel Eyes. Other big screen credits for the entertainer include Anaconda, Out of Sight, and The Cell, among others. In the upcoming year she will be seen in Sony's thriller Enough, the romantic comedy Chambermaid, and the crime thriller Gigli.
Lopez joins a distinguished list of actresses to have received the honor including Sandra Bullock, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Annette Bening. Other honorees at this year's convention are Nicole Kidman, Will Smith, and Steven Spielberg.
