ET's Nancy O'Dell was the recipient of the Excellence in Television Award by the Alliance for Women in Media and our cameras were on the red carpet to speak with Nancy and others attending the star-studded ceremony.
"With the Alliance for Women in Media, women in media have really come a long way -- because of their support," Nancy said at the 56th Annual Genii Awards Gala in Los Angeles last night. "And to have both my Executive Producers from Entertainment Tonight here, DJ Petroro and Linda Bell Blue -- who are so supportive of women. It's amazing how empowering the whole organization is, and how empowering ET is," she added.
Nancy was also reunited with ET's former co-host Mark Steines, who served as emcee for the event. "It's such an honor for me to be here this evening, for her. She's so deserving of the recognition she's getting," said Mark, who added that he has no idea where Nancy gets the energy to keep up with her busy work schedule along with her charity activities.
Watch the video to see Nancy accept the prestigious award and also to hear from Raising Hope star Cloris Leachman, who was honored with the organization's Lifetime Achievement Award.
