The voting starts July 1 and the winners will receive their awards at the “Hollywood Movie Awards Gala Ceremony” on August 6 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Last year’s winners were Angelina Jolie and Russell Crowe, who accepted their awards at the Festival’s gala closing night “Hollywood Movie Awards” dinner in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
This year’s Festival will take place from August 1-6, and it will showcase a selection of soon-to-be-announced prestigious domestic and international feature films, shorts, documentaries, and animation. The venues include the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for the “Hollywood Film Conference,” Paramount Studios and Raleigh Studios for the “Hollywood Film Screenings” and the Beverly Hilton Hotel for the “Hollywood Movie Awards.”
