Reese Witherspoon opted with a plain black maternity sheath dress to collect her award from the Gene Siskel Film Center inside the Ritz-Carlton Chicago Saturday night, June 23. Nice! Congrats, mama! Witherspoon is getting around this pregnancy and is still very much in the game!
I’m tearing up by the sight of Gene’s name. He was my all time favorite movie critic and I was broken up when he succumbed to cancer at the early age of just 53 back in 1999. R.I.P. Nice to see his legacy lives on through this award, through a website dedicated to him and a film center named for Gene at the Institute of the Art Institute of Chicago. It screens thousands of movies and honors those in the industry.
