Awards season begins with the “Hollywood Film Awards;” plain and simple. In fact, many of the entertainers that win big at the “Hollywood Film Awards” usually end up nominated or winning that golden statue at the Oscars as well.  For example, just look at Matthew McConaughey, Christopher Plummer, and Christoph Waltz. In fact, over the past few years, 80 percent of the honorees at the HFA have also received an Oscar nomination. So, Just watching puts you ahead of your friends later on in awards season.

Unlike some other awards shows, the “Hollywood Film Awards” has amazing live music performances.  There’s nothing boring or sleep-inducing about the ever-energetic Janelle Monae, who is tapped to perform this year.  You definitely don’t want to miss it.
