UPDATED, 9 AM: Rob Riggle is set to host the 23rd annual Hollywood Film Awards next month at the Beverly Hilton. The multihyphenate Daily Show alum co-hosts ABC’s Stephen Curry-produced Holey Moley, stars in Sony Crackle’s Rob Riggle’s Ski Master Academy and fronts the upcoming Discovery series Rob Riggle: Global Investigator.
PREVIOUSLY, June 26: The 23rd annual Hollywood Film Awards are set for November 3 this year, placing it on the same weekend as the 2018 edition.
The event, produced by dick clark productions and to be held once again at the Beverly Hilton, is known as one of the earliest stops on the movie awards-season circuit. That will be the case again in a year that will see a compressed campaign schedule stemming from the Oscars’ early February 9, 2020 date.
HFA awards are pre-selected and honor films, actors and crafts. Last year, eventual Oscar Best Picture winner Green Book received the Hollywood Ensemble Award and the Hollywood Screenwriter Award, and Black Panther won the Hollywood Film Award.
Awards are also handed out for directing, cinematography, visual effects, film composing, costume design, editing, production design, sound and makeup & hairstyling.
