Hollywood Film Awards
Angelina scores a trophy—and Allison Janney scores an onstage kiss—as Hollywood’s awards season kicks off
CONTINUING A STRONG SHOWING FOR their Oscar campaign, First They Killed My Father director and co-writer Angelina Jolie (see p. 34) and writer Loung Ung took out best foreign-language film at the 21st annual Hollywood Film Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on Nov. 5. “We are here to celebrate the craft of cinema, the expertise and excellence that all of you put in to create truly moving stories,” announced host James Corden. “And who better to do that than me, the voice of Hi-5 from The Emoji Movie?” Accepting his career-achievement award, Gary Oldman said: “Like many of you here, we all show up to make something grander than real life, and perhaps just maybe to find something of a truth in it. It’s indeed a very special way to make a living.” As Wonder Wheel’s Kate Winslet accepted her Hollywood Actress award from Shailene Woodley, she called out her fellow nominees, including I, Tonya’s Allison Janney. “Allison, I know I don’t really know you, but I just want to be you,” she said. “I do, or just stroke you or something. I mean, we could always kiss, maybe?” They got to know each other straight away—with a kiss.
Angelina Jolie (in Jenny Packham) dedicated her award to “everyone back home in Cambodia.” Corden hosted for the third time. Allison Janney (right) popped up to the stage to accept Kate Winslet’s suggestion of a kiss. Shailene Woodley wore a Balmain dress.
Kate Mara and Jamie Bell married in July. Margot Robbie’s I, Tonya cast won an ensemble award.
Amy Adams shared a laugh with award winner Jake Gyllenhaal ( Stronger). The brothers Franco (James, left, and Dave) star in The Disaster Artist.
