The outstanding contributions made by women in media will be recognized at the 17th annual Women’s Image Awards.

Writers, actresses, filmmakers and other professionals in television and movies will be honored at a ceremony on Feb. 10 at Royce Hall, UCLA.

“The Diary of a Teenage Girl,” “Grandma,” “Mistress America,” “Far From the Madding Crowd,” “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” and “Suffragette” are the female-led pictures that received nods in the Outstanding Featured Film category.

While the Academy Awards and other programs overlooked quality achievements by women and people of color in 2015, filmmaker Nzingha Stewart received Women’s Image Awards nods for her Lifetime film “With This Ring” in categories for writing, outstanding made for TV movie and outstanding directing, as well as an acting nomination for Jill Scott.

Humanitarian Irena Medavoy and documentary filmmaker Abigail Disney (granddaughter of Roy O. Disney, co-founder of The Walt Disney Company with his brother Walt Disney) have been named Women of the Year Honorees.
