Philadelphia, PA, March 07, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The accolades at the 2015 Academy Awards did not end with the presentation of the statuettes. Based on chivalrous gestures witnessed by countless people, BringChivalryBack.com selected two men to be co-winners of its "Chivalry Role Model of the Month" award for February 2015. The husbands of actresses Anna Faris and Julianne Moore each demonstrated gallantry that set them apart.
During guests' arrival at the Red Carpet, it had begun to rain, and in a moment captured on television on the E! Network broadcast, Chris Pratt could be seen not only holding an umbrella over his wife Anna Faris but also holding up the bottom of her dress, keeping it from dragging on the wet ground. The gesture was noticed by Giuliana Rancic, hostess of the Red Carpet coverage for E!, who remarked, "That's sweet. Of course you always want to see a man helping out." Her co-host Kelly Osbourne added, "It shows how much they love each other and what a gentleman he is. Everyone likes to see that."
During the awards ceremony itself, as Julianne Moore was named winner of the Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role, her husband Bart Freundlich stood up and escorted her to the stage, adding more elegance to the moment.
After the ceremony, there were further instances of chivalry offered by gentlemen. Noted musician Keith Urban held an umbrella over his wife Nicole Kidman bringing her to her side of the car and allowing her to get in before going around to the driver's side of the car and getting in himself.
Also after the awards show ended, Romain Dauriac made sure that his wife was more comfortable and warm in the chilly air at the end of the evening by draping his tuxedo jacket across the shoulders of his wife Scarlett Johansson.
Relationship expert John Rasiej of BringChivalryBack.com remarks, "With such a newsworthy ceremony attracting a wide viewership, examples of chivalry during the Academy Awards catch a lot of eyes. Many of these celebrities have a major influence on the people who watch what they do and how they act. Even though these distinctive gestures may not jump off the page in terms of being grandiose, they can still impact the behavior of many other men by setting a better example."
Mr. Rasiej continues, "These men could have had the support team at the Academy Awards take care of such things as holding umbrellas and the like. Yet they found it important enough in their own relationships with their famous wives to make sure these women saw how much they were treasured."
