The stars of Hollywood kicked off the start of awards season at the Hollywood Film Awards. While the winners were announced in advance, we still saw a large crowd of A-list celebrities show up for the grand event. James Corden hosted this prestigious event and, to be expected, cracked ongoing jokes throughout the evening, on everything from the election to the awards show itself. 

Overall, it was an impeccable night in Beverly Hills as we saw stunning Red Carpet looks, heard phenomenal speeches and honored some of the most acclaimed films and actors. Most honorees used their speeches to show sincere appreciation for being honored; others used it as a platform to share their political views ahead of the election.

Needless to say, it was an enjoyable night for everyone and the perfect launch of the awards season. After all, when you have Tom Hanks, Eddie Murphy, Hugh Grant, Natalie Portman, Leonardo DiCaprio and Nicole Kidman all in the same room, you know it’s going to be one of the best nights of the year.
