Jury Member US Actress & Dame of Ceremonies ELIZABETH LAMBERT

US and International Actress and Official Jury Member

Elizabeth Lambert was born to be an actress. She made her grand entrance into this world in Orlando, Florida, but was raised in the heart of Appalachia, in the great state of Kentucky. She started dancing and performing almost as soon as she could walk, and got her professional start in musical theatre, singing and dancing in summer stock, as a young teenager. She later attended the University of Kentucky tackling lead roles, from Shakespeare to Strindberg, followed by a year of post-grad at the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.

Shortly after moving to New York, she was scooped up by Julia Robert's manager and her career began to take flight. She quickly began booking soap and commercial gigs, while supporting herself as a host, runway model, and doing voice-over ads for radio.

Finally, after taking the leap, fate brought her to La La Land, where her career continued to pick up speed. She quickly landed guest stars on several hot network episodics: LIFE GOES ON, COLUMBO, CSI, a recurring role on EDEN for the USA Network, and a juicy starring femme fatale role in the film, THE PICKUP, for Showtime.

Other highlights were dream roles, such as a starring role playing Jacqueline Kennedy, (she was featured) in ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, along with Natalie Portman, as one of a small, esteemed group of actresses, who have had the honor of playing Jacqueline Kennedy.

And also a very special-guest star role on BAYWATCH, written just for her. She also landed the dynamic lead in the third film of the cult classic - WITCHBOARD trilogy.

Recent TV credits include the Ryan Murphy series, THE POLITICIAN, opposite Gwyneth Paltrow. She also starred in a very famous commercial directed by Coen brothers for Honda which was an homage to The Mod Squad, playing Peggy Lipton. She has also played the wife of Michael Madsen, the mother of Evan Rachel Wood, the young date of a drunken Dudley Moore, as well as many queens, moms, and murderers, on stage and screen.

In addition to films and episodics, some of her biggest fan base comes from the video game world, where she has starred in three huge video games: INFAMOUS, INFAMOUS 2, as well as SILENT HILL: HOMECOMING. Her hosting and presenter work has taken her all over the world, from New York to Milan.

She recently wrapped on the film CHECKSUM, a chilling dystopian tale in which she plays the dual lead role of both a human and virtual version of her character. Right after the pandemic, she jumped back into film work filming the hilarious ensemble comedy, SIBLINGS! Opposite BACK TO THE FUTURE PT2’s Jeffrey Weissman.

After she leaves Monte Carlo, she is scheduled to be heading to Ireland to begin working an exciting new production, co-starring in a wonderful period film being shot on location there.

In her downtime, she happily resides in sunny California, where she is active with her favorite charities and political groups - THE GOOD DEED CORPS and THE DOVE PROJECT, which is dedicated to ending the dog meat trade in South Korea. She has a real passion for animals, most recently traveling to Africa to go on a photography safari. Being a true Kentucky Woman, she loves all things horses. Especially taking wild rides on horseback with friends up to the Hollywood Sign. She is also a championship marksman, and loves competing in shooting events. She has trophies for skeet, trap, and her favorite, sporting clays. Other passions are theatre, writing poetry, and her precious pup, Piper the Wonder Dog.

Elizabeth feels so honored to be serving on the jury at the festivities this year, and also extremely grateful to Rosana & Dean…for inviting her back to play! Bring on the films... Let the fun begin!
