Bradley CooperIt's not even awards season yet, however recipients of the 16th Annual Hollywood Film Awards have been slowly revealed over the past few weeks. Among the latest winner announced is Bradley Cooper, People's 2011 Sexiest Man Alive, who's being honored for his work in Silver Linings Playbook. Cooper and his co-star Jennifer Lawrence are on pretty much everyone's list of potential 2013 Oscar nominees following screenings of that film at festivals, so it comes as no surprise that Cooper's earned the attention of the Hollywood Film Festival.

Cooper's receiving the Hollywood Actor Award and Russell has earned the Hollywood Director Award.

    It is TIME that Amy Adams get the Oscar she’s been nominated for but denied for far too long; TIME the Academy recognizes America’s most talented and versatile actress who isn’t named Meryl Streep. She can do it all, and do it so very well.

    Loved having an Amy Adams doubleheader weekend recently, seeing her in Trouble With The Curve and then a completely different role, the real master of The Master, showing us all who the best, hardest working actress is out there. Not to mention someone who seems to be a genuine person without pretense in real life.

    Amy, you’re simply the best!

    That’s a great boost for Marion Cotillard, she is stunning in “Rust & Bone”. Best performance of the year. Looks like Hollywood’s princess has Hollywood behind her. Two tributes (Telluride + Gotham) and “The Hollywood actress award”, the “awards season” begins clearly well for her.

    I prefer Lawrence to Cotillard this year. Rust & Bone relies on the cheapest cliche in Hollywood: tragic disability. Lawrence didn’t have to be placed in a wheelchair to generate a reaction. But Hollywood critics fall this this gimmick every time.

    Well Cotillard is definitely amazing in “Rust & Bone”. Unlike Calle says, Rust and bone is no “hollywood movie like” at all. it has been made by a talented french film-maker (Audiard) who isn’t related to Hollywood star system. Some movies are totally dedicated to win awards (like The Artist), but rust & bone is nothing like that. It hasn’t been made for America anyway. The movie has been watched since Cannes last year and it only comes in December to american screens, so forget about the wheelchair effect and focus on the story, not some kind of tricks to get awards from hollywood…
