The following is a press release from Purina:

To celebrate the third annual “Beverly Hills Dog Show Presented by Purina,” Purina is inviting pet lovers across the country to showcase their dog’s star-studded personalities through the  #EveryDogIsAStar social media campaign for a chance to see their pup featured on NBC or NBCSports.com this Easter Sunday, April 21, 2019.

From award-winning cuddles to fantastic tricks, Purina wants to see which dogs are shining the brightest and living their best lives with their owners.

To see which pets get their 15 seconds of fame, tune in to the Beverly Hills Dog Show Presented by Purina on April 21, Easter Sunday, on NBC at 1pm ET / 10am PT. The show will bring the stars of Hollywood and the stars of the dog world together for an amazing night while crowning one of America’s great dogs as its 2019 champion.

Maria Menounos, host of the leading female Apple Podcast, ‘Conversations with Maria’ and her dogs, Whinnie and Maximus, are helping to kick off this year’s #EveryDogIsAStar initiative.

“My dogs are the true stars of our family. They have different personalities, but provide us with their own wonderful versions of warmth and affection,” said Menounos. “Our German Shepherd, Maximus, is the family’s protector, while Whinnie, our Poodle, provides closeness and comfort. That’s why my pets and I are excited to help kickoff Purina’s ‘Every Dog is a Star’ program this year to further celebrate each pet’s star qualities and the value they bring to our lives every day.”

The Beverly Hills Dog Show will feature some of Hollywood’s famous faces and pet lovers, including “Extra” host Mario Lopez, “High School Musical” actress Ashley Tisdale, three-time Olympic gold-medalist Shaun White, “America Ninja Warrior” co-host, Akbar Gbajabiamila, “Manifest” stars Parveen Kaur, Melissa Roxburgh and J.R. Ramirez, Triple Crown-winning jockeys Victor Espinoza and Mike Smith and more to cheer on their favorite breeds ringside as the dogs strut their stuff for Best In Show honors. This year’s show will feature more than 1,500 dogs representing more than 200 eligible breeds competing for the top prize.

“The Beverly Hills Dog Show is another great example of Purina and NBC partnering to bring family-friendly entertainment options to TV while highlighting hundreds of amazing dogs in and out of the show ring,” said Daniel Henke-Cilenti, director of marketing for the Purina brand. “Building upon the successful formula of the National Dog Show Presented by Purina, an annual Thanksgiving tradition for millions of families, we are growing that same family holiday tradition with the Beverly Hills Dog Show on Easter.”

The show will be co-hosted by legendary dog show analyst David Frei and beloved TV personality John O’Hurley, along with NBC’s Mary Carillo and Maria Menounos as official correspondents at the show.

2019 Golden Globe Awards: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ ‘Green Book’ win big

Golden Globes trophy

“Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Green Book” were the top movie winners at the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which took place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on January 6, 2019. NBC had the U.S. telecast of the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, which was hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh. Dick Clark Productions produced the show. The Golden Globe Awards are voted for by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Eligible movies were those with U.S. release dates in 2018, while eligible TV shows were those that televised new episodes in the U.S. in 2018.

“Bohemian Rhapsody,” the official biopic of rock band Queen and its lead singer Freddie Mercury, won the two prizes for which it was nominated:  Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama (for Rami Malek, who played Mercury). The victories for “Bohemian Rhapsody” no doubt surprised the many pundits who predicted that the 2018 remake of “A Star Is Born” and its leading actor Bradley Cooper would take those prizes.

Meanwhile, “Green Book,” which told the true story of an unlikely friendship that developed in 1962 between highly educated pianist Don Shirley and blue-collar driver Tony “Lip” Vallelonga, won the most prizes (three) at the 2019 Golden Globes: Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy; Best Supporting Actor (for Mahershala Ali, who plays Shirley); and Best Screenplay.

Other multiple winners, with two prizes each, were the Spanish-language drama “Roma”; the miniseries “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”; and the comedy series “The Kominsky Method.” As expected, the Alfonso Cuarón-directed “Roma” won the prizes for Best Director and Best Foreign Language Film.

Besides “Bohemian Rhapsody” taking the top movie drama prize, the other big surprise win in the movie categories was Glenn Close of “The Wife,” who won Best Actress in a  Motion Picture – Drama, instead of the widely predicted Lady Gaga of the 2018 remake of “A Star Is Born.”  In the end, 2018’s “A Star Is Born” won just one Golden Globe: Best Original Song, for “Shallow,” which was co-written by Lady Gaga. “Vice,” which went into the ceremony with the most nominations (six), ultimately won just one Golden Globe: Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, which went to Christian Bale for his portrayal of former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney. Bale had been widely predicted to win the award. Another widely predicted victory was Olivia Colman of “The Favourite,” who won for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.

In the TV categories, first-time Golden Globe winner Richard Madden of “Bodyguard” was a surprise win for Best Actor in a Television Series – Drama, instead of the Matthew Rhys of “The Americans,” who won an Emmy for the show’s final season. However, “The Americans” did win the prize for Best Television Series – Drama, as expected. For the prize of Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy, “The Kominsky Method” triumphed over “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” the category’s previous Golden Globe winner. However, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star Rachel Brosnahan repeated her Golden Globe win from 2018 to take the prize again for Best Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.  Meanwhile, Michael Douglas of “The Kominsky Method” won the award for Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy. “The Kominsky Method” debuted in the second half of 2018, and will be eligible for the Emmy Awards for the first time in 2019.

“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” which won several Emmys in 2018, was the leading TV nominee going into the Golden Globes, with four nominations. As expected, the two Golden Globes it won were for Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, while Darren Criss (who played serial killer Andrew Cunanan) won for Best Actor in a Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Golden Globes co-host Oh of “Killing Eve” won the prize for Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama.

In the non-competitive categories, Jeff Bridges received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for career achievement, while Carol Burnett was the first recipient of the Carol Burnett Award, which is given for outstanding contributions to television.

Presenters at the Golden Globe Awards included Halle Berry, Kristen Bell, Emily Blunt, Chadwick Boseman, Sterling K. Brown, Steve Carell,  Jessica Chastain, Olivia Colman, Bradley Cooper, Kaley Cuoco, Jamie Lee Curtis, Dick Van Dyke, Taron Egerton, Idris Elba, Harrison Ford, Johnny Galecki, Richard Gere, Danai Gurira, Justin Hartley, Amber Heard, Taraji P. Henson, Felicity Huffman, Allison Janney, Michael B. Jordan, Nicole Kidman, Lady Gaga, Lucy Liu, William H. Macy, Chrissy Metz, Mike Myers, Julianne Moore, Bill Murray, Lupita Nyong’o, Gary Oldman, Jim Parsons,  Amy Poehler, Sam Rockwell, Gina Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Saoirse Ronan, Octavia Spencer, Ben Stiller, Emma Stone, Taylor Swift, Lena Waithe, Rachel Weisz and Catherine Zeta-Jones

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) announced today that Golden Globe winner and four-time nominee Jeff Bridges will be honored with the 2019 Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 6, 2019. The highly-acclaimed actor of such legendary films as “Crazy Heart,” “The Big Lebowski,” “True Grit” and “The Fabulous Baker Boys” will accept the honor at the awards ceremony, hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg, and airing LIVE coast to coast from 5-8 p.m. PT/8-11 p.m. ET on NBC.

HFPA President Meher Tatna stated, “The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is delighted to bestow the 2019 Cecil B. DeMille Award on Jeff Bridges. Bridges’ brilliant body of work across diverse genres has captured the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide for more than six decades.  We look forward to celebrating ‘The Dude’ and his remarkable career and philanthropic achievements at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards.”

Chosen by the HFPA Board of Directors, the Cecil B. DeMille Award is given annually to a talented individual who has made a lasting impact on the world of entertainment. Honorees over the decades include George Clooney, Robert De Niro, Audrey Hepburn, Harrison Ford, Jodie Foster, Sophia Loren, Sidney Poitier, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, Barbra Streisand, Denzel Washington, Robin Williams, Oprah Winfrey, and many more.

Bridges’ moving and multi-layered performances have earned him countless accolades including a Golden Globe win for his performance in “Crazy Heart.”

The actor’s multi-faceted career includes the cult classic “The Big Lebowski.” His first Golden Globe nomination came in 1984 for Best Actor in “Starman.” Seven years later he received his second Golden Globe nomination for his performance in “The Fisher King,” co-starring Robin Williams. In 2001, he was honored with another Golden Globe nomination for his role in “The Contender,” Rod Lurie’s political thriller, co-starring Gary Oldman and Joan Allen, in which Bridges played the President of the United States.

In 2017, he received another Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor as a retiring Texas Ranger in “Hell or High Water,” a modern action bank heist thriller set in West Texas.  The critically acclaimed film starred Chris Pine, Ben Foster and Gil Birmingham.

Through Bridges’ company, AsIs Productions, he produced “Hidden in America,” which received a Golden Globe nomination in 1996 for Best Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television.

Bridges most recently appeared in 20th Century Fox’s mystery thriller “Bad Times at the El Royale” starring Chris Hemsworth, Jon Hamm and Dakota Johnson. Additionally, Bridges can be seen in “Living in The Future’s Past,” a documentary directed by Susan Kucera that focuses on current environmental challenges.

In 1983, Bridges founded the End Hunger Network, a nonprofit organization dedicated to feeding children around the world. Bridges produced “End Hunger,” a three-hour live television broadcast focusing on world hunger which featured Gregory Peck, Jack Lemmon, Burt Lancaster, Bob Newhart, Kenny Loggins and other leading film, television and music stars in an innovative production to educate and inspire action. He is currently the national spokesman for the Share Our Strength/No Kid Hungry campaign that is fighting to end childhood hunger in America.

2019 Golden Globe Awards: ‘Vice’ leads movie nominations, ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ is the top TV nominee

December 6, 2018

Golden Globes trophy

With six nominations, the dark comedy “Vice” is the leading contender at the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards, which will take place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California, on January 6, 2019. The miniseries “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” which won several Emmy Awards, has the most Golden Globe nominations in the TV field, getting four nods. NBC will have the U.S. telecast of the 2019 Golden Globe Awards, which will be hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh. Dick Clark Productions is producing the show. The Golden Globe Awards are voted for by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Eligible movies are those with U.S. release dates in 2018, while eligible TV shows were those that televised new episodes in the U.S. in 2018.

As expected, “Vice” (which could be considered a drama or a dark comedy) was nominated in the Musical or Comedy categories, including Best Picture, Best Actor (for Christian Bale, who plays former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney in the movie); Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture (for Amy Adams, who plays Lynne Cheney, Dick Cheney’s wife); Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture (for Sam Rockwell, who plays former U.S. President George W. Bush); Best Director (for Adam McKay); and Best Screenplay.

The Peter Farrelly-directed “Green Book,” starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali, picked up five nods, and faces off against “Vice” in all the same categories except Best Supporting Actress. “The Favourite,” which also received five nominations, is competing for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Screenplay, while star Oliva Colman is up for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, and co-stars Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone have nominations for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture. Other movies that have several nominations are “A Star Is Born,” “BlacKkKlansman” and “Mary Poppins Returns,” which received four nods each.

The nominations for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” include Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television. Also getting nominated are lead actor Darren Criss (who played serial killer Andrew Cunanan), supporting actor Édgar Ramírez (who played Gianni Versace) and supporting actress Penélope Cruz (who played Donatella Versace).

Other TV shows with several nominations are “The Americans,” “Barry,” “Homecoming,” “The Kominsky Method,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Sharp Objects,” which have three nods each. “The Americans” (which had its final season in 2018), “Barry” (which had its first season in 2018) and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (whose first season debuted in 2017) already won Emmys in 2018. Critically acclaimed new series “Homecoming,” “The Kominsky Method” and “Sharp Objects” premiered in the second half of 2018, and will be eligible for the 2019 Emmy Awards, as will the second season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” “Sharp Objects” star Amy Adams and “Seven Seconds” star Regina King have achieved a rare milestone of being nominated for a TV show and a movie in the same year at the Golden Globes. In the category of Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture, Adams is nominated for “Vice,” while King received a nod for “If Beale Street Could Talk.”

Movie Snubs and Surprises

“First Man,” the drama about astronaut Neil Armstrong and his historic voyage as the first man on the moon, was considered an early frontrunner since it was was getting recognition at film festivals, but that buzz has considerably quieted due to criticism the movie has received for being emotionally distant and not patriotic enough. “First Man” also disappointed at the box office. “First Man,” directed by Damien Chazelle and starring Ryan Gosling as Armstrong, was snubbed in the two categories many people had predicted the movie would get nominated: Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Director. However, “First Man” did get nominations for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture (for Claire Foy, who plays Armstrong’s first wife Janet) and Best Original Score (for Justin Hurwitz, a previous winner of this award for “La La Land”). “First Reformed,” a drama starring Ethan Hawke as a clergyman with secrets, has been winning several awards from critics and at shows honoring independent films, but the movie was completely snubbed by the Golden Globes. And although “Mary Poppins Returns” received a nod for Best Original Score, the movie musical failed to get any nominations for Best Original Song. It should be noted that the Spanish-language “Roma,” which has been getting several critics’ awards, was not eligible for a Golden Globe nomination for Best Picture because Golden Globe rules prevent a movie to be nominated for both Best Picture and Best Foreign-Language Film. However, as expected, “Roma” is nominated for Best Foreign-Language Film, where it is a clear frontrunner.

As for surprises in the movie categories, the critically acclaimed blockbuster “Black Panther” made Golden Globes history as the first superhero movie to get a Best Picture nomination, although some awards pundits had predicted this nomination would happen. However, unlike all the other nominees in the Best Picture categories, “Black Panther” did not get any nominations for acting, directing or screenwriting, which does not bode well for the movie’s chances of winning. The little-seen independent film “A Private War,” starring Rosamund Pike as real-life war journalist Marie Colvin, picked up two nominations: Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama and Best Original Song (for Annie Lennox’s “Requiem for a Private War”). Meanwhile, Robert Redford was nominated for Best Actor for the dramatic film “The Old Man and the Gun,” but not in the category people would expect. His nomination was in the Musical or Comedy category, not Drama. The Golden Globes often get criticism for placing dramatic films in the musical or comedy categories, and this is another example of that misplacement.

TV Snubs and Surprises

In the TV categories, Emmy Award winners “Game of Thrones” and “The Crown” were ineligible for Golden Globe nominations this year since the shows did not have any new episodes in 2018. Previous Golden Globe winners “This Is Us,” “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Atlanta” failed to get nominations in the Best Series categories. “This Is Us” was completely shut out of the race by not getting any Golden Globe nods, which might indicate that Golden Globe voters have grown weary of “This Is Us” melodrama. “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Atlanta” were snubbed, respectively, in the categories of Best Drama Series and Best Musical or Comedy Series, although the show’s stars (Elisabeth Moss of “A Handmaid’s Tale” and Donald Glover of “Atlanta”) did get nominated for their leading roles in the series. “Westworld” only received one nomination: Best Supporting Actress (for Thandie Newton, who won an Emmy this year for her role in “Westworld”). “House of Cards,” which had its final season in 2018, used to get multiple Golden Globe nominations, but was completely shut out of the race again this year. It seems that the sexual misconduct scandals of former “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey still have had repercussions for the show. And multiple Emmy winner “Saturday Night Live,” which has never really been celebrated at the Golden Globes, failed to get any Golden Globe nominations again this year.

TV nomination surprises include three new series: “Kidding” received two nods: Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy and Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy (for Jim Carrey, who stars in series as the host of a children’s TV show). “Pose,” about drag-queen culture in New York City, also picked up two nods: Best Television Series – Drama and Best Actor in a Television Series – Drama (for Billy Porter). “Bodyguard,” another surprise nominee, is competing in the same two categories as “Pose,” with Richard Madden up for the Best Actor prize. All three shows, which premiered in the second half of 2018, will be eligible for the 2019 Emmy Awards.

The following is a press release from Dick Clark Productions and NBC:

Sandra Oh, star of the critically acclaimed BBC America drama series “Killing Eve,” and Andy Samberg, star of NBC’s Golden Globe-winning comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” will co-host the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

The three-hour telecast will air live on NBC coast to coast Sunday, January 6 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT from The Beverly Hilton.

The Golden Globes serve as the official kickoff to the 2019 awards season. Winners in 25 categories — 14 in film and 11 in television — are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).

“Sandra and Andy are the perfect choices to host this world-class event,” said Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks, Co-Chairmen, NBC Entertainment. “They bring wit, charm and style to a room filled with the very best of film and television. It’s sure to be another unforgettable fun-filled night.”

“We’re excited to welcome Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg as co-hosts of Hollywood’s Party of the Year,” said HFPA President Meher Tatna. “Both Golden Globe Award recipients have continually showcased their talents in film and television, and we can’t wait see what their undeniable chemistry will bring to the Golden Globes stage.”

“We are thrilled to have Sandra and Andy co-hosting the Golden Globes,” said Mike Mahan, Executive Producer and CEO, dick clark productions. “This innovative pairing sets the perfect tone for the most entertaining awards celebration of the year.”

Oh currently serves as co-executive producer and earned an Emmy Award nomination for Lead Actress in a Drama for BBC America’s “Killing Eve” as Eve Polastri, an MI5 officer who hunts down and becomes entangled with a cold-blooded female assassin. Previously, Oh starred as Dr. Cristina Yang on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” for which she won a 2006 Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, a Screen Actors Guild Award for Female Actor in a Drama Series and five Emmy nominations for Supporting Actress in a Drama. Oh’s film credits include “Sideways,” “Under the Tuscan Sun,” “Catfight” and “Meditation Park,” and she produced the animated film “Window Horses: The Poetic Persian Epiphany of Rosie Ming” as well as voicing the title character.

In 2014, Samberg was a two-time Golden Globe winner for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” winning Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy and as a producer on the show for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy.  Prior to that, Samberg was a cast member on “Saturday Night Live” from 2005-12.  His work on NBC’s iconic late night franchise earned him an Emmy Award and six additional Emmy nominations for his work with The Lonely Island and their digital shorts. The Lonely Island has also been nominated for three Grammys. In 2015, Samberg hosted the 67th annual Primetime Emmy® Awards and in 2013, hosted the Film Independent Spirit Awards.

The new season of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” begins Thursday, Jan. 10 at 9 p.m. on NBC.

The Golden Globe Awards, often referred to as “Hollywood’s Party of the Year,” is one of the biggest nights on the calendar for live viewing. It’s also one of the few awards shows that combine the honorees of both film and television.

The 2018 Golden Globe Awards telecast averaged a 5.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 19 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research, putting it ahead of every show on television from the previous 10 months in total viewers, since the prior year’s Academy Awards. The Golden Globes led NBC to the nightlong win in total viewers despite NFL playoff competition.

Produced by dick clark productions in association with the HFPA, the Golden Globe Awards are viewed in more than 210 territories worldwide.

Meher Tatna is President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Allen Shapiro, Executive Chairman of dick clark productions, Mike Mahan, CEO of dick clark productions and Barry Adelman, Executive VP of Television at dick clark productions, will serve as executive producers.

2018 Hollywood Film Awards: ‘Black Panther,’ ‘Incredibles 2’ among honorees

October 30, 2018

The following is a press release from Dick Clark Productions:

Dick Clark Productions announced today that Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther” will receive this year’s Hollywood Film Award, and Pixar Animation Studios’ “Incredibles 2” will receive the Hollywood Animation Award at the 22nd Annual Hollywood Film Awards, taking place on Sunday, November 4 at The Beverly Hilton. Both films received wide critical acclaim and broke box office records this year. “Black Panther” became a cultural phenomenon that has broken boundaries and created a movement, gracing the cover of Time Magazine. “Black Panther” had the highest grossing non-sequel opening weekend of all time, showing that diversity and representation in front of and behind the camera can equal global box-office success. “Incredibles 2” marked the biggest opening weekend in history for an animated film, grossing more than $1.2 billion globally to date and garnering widespread critical acclaim. Two-time Oscar winner writer/director Brad Bird’s follow up to 2004’s Oscar-winning “The Incredibles” expands upon the original’s daring concept of a family of Supers who struggle against society’s fickle embrace while tasked with stopping a devious plot to undermine the public’s belief and faith in government and national security. Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) this time takes center stage as the family’s secret weapon, while Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) stays home to care for the children, who display increasingly curious powers of their own.

ABOUT THE HONOREES
“Black Panther” is director Ryan Coogler’s take on a modern African hero and a utopian vision of what an uncolonized Africa might look like.  The film explores the conflict between two powerful men, one African and one African-American, who are mirror images of each other, each grappling with his own history, home and very identity.  When Prince T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) becomes king of the hidden, technologically advanced kingdom Wakanda, he is forced to defend his throne against rogue mercenary Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). Wakanda is also alive with strong, intelligent women, from Wakanda’s elite all-female security force, led by Lupita Nyong’o and Danai Gurira, to T’Challa’s own tech-savvy sister (Letitia Wright) and mother (Angela Bassett), who are portrayed as equals to the men they protect and advise.

In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack, whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible. Disney Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” is written and directed by Academy® Award-winner Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “Tomorrowland”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer).

They join previously announced honorees Nicole Kidman, who will receive this year’s Hollywood Career Achievement Award, Glenn Close, who will receive the Hollywood Actress Award, Hugh Jackman, who will receive the Hollywood Actor Award, Damien Chazelle, who will receive the Hollywood Director Award, Timothée Chalamet who will receive the Hollywood Supporting Actor Award, “Green Book,” which will receive the Hollywood Ensemble Award, “Crazy Rich Asians,” which will receive the Hollywood Breakout Ensemble Award, Amandla Stenberg, who will receive the Hollywood Breakout Performance Actress Award, John David Washington, who will receive the Hollywood Breakout Performance Actor Award, Felix Van Groeningen, who will receive the  Hollywood Breakthrough Director Award, Yalitza Aparicio, who will receive the New Hollywood Award, Peter Farrelly, Nick Vallelonga and Brian Hayes Currie, who will receive the Hollywood Screenwriter Award for “Green Book,” and “Believer” will receive the Hollywood Documentary Award.

ABOUT THE HONOREES
“Believer” is a film based on Imagine Dragons’ frontman Dan Reynolds who comes to a crossroads when he witnesses fellow members of the Mormon church spurned due to their sexual orientation. Since 2008, teen suicide rates in Utah have skyrocketed, which many people attribute to the Mormon church’s official stance regarding same-sex relationships. Director Don Argott follows Dan and openly gay former Mormon Tyler Glenn, lead singer of Neon Trees, as they decide to create LoveLoud, a music and spoken-word festival designed to spark dialogue between the church and members of the LGBTQ community.

Dan Reynolds, a third generation Las Vegas native, is lead singer for the Grammy winning band Imagine Dragons. Born to a family of nine children, Dan grew up writing and recording music before beginning his studies at Brigham Young University and later UNLV. Dan left his schooling to form Imagine Dragons, which had its start making ends meet playing casinos and bars in Las Vegas before signing to KidinaKorner/Interscope Records. The band has since sold over 12 million albums and 35 million singles worldwide. In 2016, Dan formed Interscope imprint Night Street Records, whose first signing K.Flay was nominated for two 2018 Grammy Awards.  Having publicly expressed his concern for the rising suicide rate in LGBTQ+ youth, Dan founded the LOVELOUD Foundation in 2017 to bring awareness to the growing crisis. Its mission is to bring communities together by igniting the vital conversation of what it means to unconditionally love, understand, accept, and support our LGBTQ+ family and friends. Dan also currently serves as a board member for The Tyler Robinson Foundation, a charity he co-founded which helps support pediatric cancer families in financial distress.

Additional honorees for the 22nd Annual Hollywood Film Awards will be announced in the coming days.
