Connie Britton, actor next starring in Women in Trouble, presented her best friend who is an accomplished actress with integrity and grace Carla Gugino with a NIAF Achievement Award in Entertainment at the black-tie gala. Its truly an honor and surprisingly emotional to receive this award from my best friend, Gugino said. Gugino spoke of her fathers explanation of two kinds of people Italians, and those who wished they were Italian. She knew being Italian was special. Gugino also referred to an incident in Hollywood when they asked her to change her surname. I thought of my Italian father and how sad he would be, she said.
