The Hollywood Film Awards has recognized excellence in the art of cinema and film for the past 17 years. But for the first time on Friday, Nov. 14, we all can watch a broadcast of the 18th annual star-studded ceremony hosted by Queen Latifah, from the Hollywood Palladium.
Already confirmed to be in attendance are a host of Hollywood stars including: heartthrob Gerard Butler, Robert Duvall, Michael Keaton, Julianne Moore, Jack O’Connell, Chris Pratt, Channing Tatum, Jean-Marc Vallée, Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley. More stars are expected to be announced over the coming days.
This year marks the first time ever that the Hollywood Film Awards will televised. CBS will be airing on the ceremony on Nov. 14. The Awards show kicks off at 7:30 PM live ET/delayed PT on CBS with a half-hour special show featuring fashion and candid interviews with all of the stars as they arrive on the red carpet.
Following the official awards show broadcast, the festivities will continue with a one-hour special show, hosted by CBS This Morning anchors Charlie Rose, Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King that will feature live interviews with winners and nominees and look back at the evening’s most memorable highlights. The special after-show will broadcast 10:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT.
Previous Hollywood Film Award winners include an array of household names such as the late Robin Williams, Amy Adams, recently married George Clooney, Julia Roberts and Angelina Jolie.
In a change to usual proceedings, the crafts prizes, which honor work in cinematography, visual effects, costume design, production design, and other pre and post-production roles, will be presented ahead of the start of the live broadcast and will then be acknowledged in "bumpers" before the commercials. The craft prizes have been a major part of the show since the awards inception back in 1997.
