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.
