Goldie Hawn wins an EW.com Award

WHY? We wouldn't dream of dissing Goldie: The gal deserves unmitigated awe simply for looking good at the age of 57 in a skanky rock-chick wardrobe. In fact, as a latter-day version of daughter Kate Hudson's groupie character Penny Lane, Hawn offers an amusing coda to the far better film ''Almost Famous.''

Giving this schlocky estrogenfest even a glimmer of recognition suggests that the Hollywood Foreign Press has been reading too many Hallmark cards. Hawn may deserve credit for soldiering through lame dialogue like ''See that toilet? Jim Morrison passed out in there one night with me underneath him.''
