New York City’s legendary Plaza Hotel welcomed the Princess Grace Awards Gala to its famed ballroom on Monday, November 25 for a night of elegance and entertainment to celebrate the 90th birthday of Hollywood’s most iconic movie star and beloved Princess of Monaco.


Held in the presence of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, this evening honored America’s most promising emerging talents in theater, dance and film.


As we welcomed the 2019 class of artists, the program included the presentation of the Princess Grace Statue Award to film director Chinonye Chukwu, winner of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize Award.


A highlight to the evening was the presentation of the prestigious Prince Rainier III Award to award-winning actress and Broadway legend Bernadette Peters for her exceptional artistry and philanthropy.
