“I am beyond thrilled to be the first-ever recipient of the ‘Icon’ STARmeter Award from IMDb and IMDbPro,” said Hayek Pinault. “This award means so much to me because for so long, women in the entertainment industry were under-recognized for our performances, contributions to filmmaking, and power to draw audiences to theaters. While there has been progress, particularly in the last few years, this Women’s History Month, I’m reflecting on the work that is still to be done as we continue moving towards gender parity. Thank you to IMDb and IMDbPro for this award and for making it easy for fans and professionals to learn more about the entertainment industry.”

“All of us at IMDb and IMDbPro are excited to honor Salma Hayek Pinault with our first-ever IMDb ‘Icon’ STARmeter Award, in recognition of her groundbreaking creative career and the indelible mark she has made on the entertainment industry,” said Matt Kumin, head of IMDbPro. “This new award, created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of IMDbPro, joins our ongoing STARmeter Award program and other IMDbPro exclusive data that play a key role in our commitment to helping entertainment industry professionals accelerate their careers.”
