Hollywood loves to pat itself on the back, as Variety's recent crop of philanthropy honorees well illustrates, with awards going to Lena Dunham and Kim Kardashian.

"Lena Dunham and Kim Kardashian are among this year’s Inspiration Impact Honorees at Variety‘s biannual Power of Women: New York luncheon on April 24. The event recognizes the philanthropic efforts of women in the entertainment industry. Other honorees include actresses Glenn Close, Whoopi Goldberg, and Rachel Weisz. 'Variety‘s Power of Women Initiative has become a shining example of what is possible when committed women with a voice stand up for worthy causes and harness their power to give back and inspire others to do the same,' publisher Michelle Sobrino said in a statement." - Daniel Nussbaum, Breitbart
