Julia Roberts was honored by the AMC over the weekend. She was presented the “American Cinematheque Award” by her friend Denzel Washington.

It was a glam affair and Julia didn’t disappoint. She looked stunning as she stood before an auditorium of her peers. She accepted the award with her usual wit and playful self deprecating humor. The event was filmed and will be broadcast on December 5 at 8pm ET.

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you might have missed the fact that Roberts has been absent from the public spotlight. Oh sure, we’ve seen those wholesome pic’s of Julia, Danny and the babettes.

But we’ve missed seeing Julia’s glam side. Every photo over the past several years has been of Roberts and hubby Danny Moder – hauling first babies Phineous and Hazel and now baby Henry. We couldn’t help but wonder if she had cast off the lights of Hollywood for the comforts of home. And indeed, that is exactly what she did. But that was then and this is now.

No worries. In accepting her AMC Award, she had that sparkle in her eye. Hollywood is calling and she seems to be rousing herself from a lengthy hiatus. If I were a betting gal, I’d say she’s back.
