Jake Gyllenhaal Receives Young Artist Award


Although many of you may consider him the work of art rather than the artist.

Jake Gyllenhaal hobnobbed with future biopic subject and BFF Lance Armstrong and Zodiac co-star Robert Downey Jr. at an Americans for the Arts event where Jake was awarded the Young Artist Award for Artistic Excellence.

Jake was honored alongside Jeff Koons, Kitty Carlisle Hart, Aretha Franklin, and Sheila Johnson by the arts advocacy group at Cipriani in New York.

In somewhat related news, Brokeback director Ang Lee has joined the team creating the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2008 Beijing Olympics: "Interestingly, Chinese media reporting this appointment refer to Lee as the 'internationally renowned' director without referring to his nationality. China regards self-ruled Taiwan as part of "one China" and censors any reference that suggest its autonomy."

  1. Lance Armstrong always looks like a goofy fan who's overly-excited to be in the presence of movie stars.

  2. Of course, if I were to actually meet Jake, I would probably pass out.

  4. Every time I see him I'm struck by how he looks more like JFK Jr. each time. I really am smitten by this kitten.

  5. In what alternate universe is Aretha Franklin considered young?

  6. Forget Aretha....what about Kitty Carlisle Hart?

    Posted by: gabe | Oct 17, 2006 10:29:52 AM

  7. Is Kitty still alive? I mean I know she is still above ground, but is she alive??

    I think Jake should be in a movie with Geoge Clooney and they should jog in speedos.

  8. Jake received the Young Artist award. Ms. Aretha and Ms. Kitty received other awards. Thankfully, McScruffy was not there with his guy pals, although RD Jr. nearly fits the bill as the degenerate third of the BFF trio.

  9. Kitty Carlisle Hart and Aretha Franklin... young? Compared to them Jake is what? "Most distinguished omeba"?

    I think my new slogan for Jake is "Ditch the Lance, then we'll dance". CanNOT STAND Lance Armstrong.

  10. Robert Downey is starting to show signs of lipodystrophy in his face.

  11. At the HRC event last week, Reichen rocked a similar outfit, but with waistcoast added. Jakey looks so much better here by keeping it real and simple, sans vest.

    Less is certainly more.

  12. What a vapid trio of self-aggrandizement.

    Here's to 2007's lineup of Chris Evans movies. At least Chris delivers the eye candy. Gyllenhaal always has a look on his face like he poopied. Feh!

  13. This man is beautiful. I dont care what team he plays for or if we ever know. I'm just glad he's on the planet when I am.

  14. I was there last night, a table away. Lance and Jake were talking the entire night... Oddly enough, Dave Eggers was at their table as well.

    What the hell?

  16. Methinks there are too many awards handed out to actors.

  17. Meanwhile, a Girl Scout troop near Lance's manse has given Reichen a box of cookies, and he's a finalist for the coveted annual Boys Underwear Association Award.

  18. How about the Boys Underwear National Society Award?
