Jennifer, 50, kept to the theme of spring with her pink, white and green satin floral gown and matching pink clutch. Her long train was the star on the red carpet and Alex, 44, had no trouble standing beside her! Alex sported a simple black tuxedo for the J.Lo's big night.

The Hustlers star won the Spotlight Award, Actress for her role in the drama. Her director Lorene Scafaria presented her with the prestigious award. "Jennifer changed the face of movie stardom. It's easy to take Jennifer Lopez for granted maybe because she makes hard work look easy," Lorene gushed.

"It's no secret Hustlers was a tough sell and a tough shoot. It had difficult journey to the box office and awards season," the filmmaker continued. "I was in Jennifer's trailer and I had tears in my eyes. She changed my life ... for her singular performance, for her spectacular talent."

"You know I’ve been in this business for awhile — maybe longer than I'd like to admit. I’ve had the great privilege of working with great directors. There was something that spoke to me about this role," Jennifer continued. "This was a film written, directed, produced, edited, set designed by women, about women, starring women. So, to all the talented women out there — support one another. Remember no is not an answer. It's an opportunity."
