Star Trek XI was a winner at Monday night’s Hollywood Film Festival’s Hollywood Awards.
Started thirteen years ago, the Hollywood Awards are chosen based on “private, press, preview and festival screenings, as well as recommendations from a cross section of Hollywood professionals, including actors, agents, executives, directors, film critics, entertainment journalists, managers, producers, publicists, screenwriters and members of the guilds and societies.”
Although it’s not one of the more prestigious award ceremonies, plenty of stars were in appearance, including Steven Spielberg, Morgan Freeman, Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Charlize Theron, Sandra Bullock, Diablo Cody, Kate Beckinsale, Kathleen Kennedy, Marisa Tomei, Michael Bay, Maria Bello, Edward Asner and Taraji P. Henson.
Star Trek XI was the winner of the Hollywood Movie of the Year. Zachary Quinto (Spock) accepted the award. “Gee, I’m shocked the online community chose to honor Star Trek,” he said.
