Additional honorees included Helen Mirren, Oscar-winning actress; Scarlett Johansson, star of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Lost In Translation”; Miley Cyrus, singer, songwriter and actress; Laverne Cox, star of “Orange Is the New Black” and “Doubt”; and Ava DuVernay, director of “Selma” and “A Wrinkle in Time.”
