People are probably thinking The Hollywood Film Awards was on 17 years ago? Did I missed it? What happened to the Day Time Emmy awards? Was that 17 years ago too? Please don’t put awards show streaming on the internet again. And now Dish Network is dropping channels again? Come on! I need my Big Bang. I meant Big Bang Theory. These shows are meant to be seen on TV not streaming over the internet.
The Hollywood Film Awards is the mandatory stop in winning the Oscar, and the Golden Globes too, but the Hollywood Film Awards is the achievement in filmmaking and acting performance. It started in 1997, by Carlos de Abreu and Janice Pennington. Over the years, it was covered by the entertainment media such as Entertainment Tonight and Access Hollywood, and other Entertainment media sites. But now, it’s on CBS.
Here are some highlights of what happened if you already missed it.
“Gone Girl” won the evening’s top prizes and Ben Afleck was on hand to accept on behalf of the cast, director and producer. It was based on Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel. And she won for best screenplay adaptation of her book.
“If you’re gonna have one chance for America to see your junk, you want it to be cold,” Affleck quipped. Junk. Cold. What?
Shailene Woodley scored breakout actress honor for “The Fault in Our Stars.” “To do this film really, truly felt like such an honor in my life,” she said.
Jennifer Lopez couldn’t read the teleprompter and a flub her lines for the introduction for the animation award. Instead of saying “How to Train Your Dragon 2” she said “How to Drain Your Dragon”, that will end up on a gag reel or the internet. She giggle when she said it.
Johnny Depp also stumbled over some words while introducing the documentary prize. To his credit, Depp admitted from the start he’s not good at these types of things. Get used to it Johnny Depp.
Kristen Stewart, who was wearing a mesh cropped top that showed off her sexy body, was completely unaware she suffered a wardrobe malfunction as she presented an award to her “Still Alice” co-star, Julianne Moore, according to US Weekly. I was looking closely. I can see through her top.
Most of the winners are contenders to win the Oscars which will be presented on ABC on Sunday, February 22, 2015 at 7pm, with your host Neil Patrick Harris.
