It'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. And Cooper's Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell will also be picking up an award at the 2013 Hollywood Film Festival awards gala. Cooper's receiving the Hollywood Actor Award and Russell has earned the Hollywood Director Award.
The festival also announced Argo has won the Hollywood Ensemble Acting Award, honoring the film's cast that includes director Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Alan Arkin and John Goodman. The awards ceremony will be held on October 22, 2012 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
