Hollywood Discovery Awards – Be Discovered and Become the Next Hollywood Star

HollywoodNews.com: The Casting Society of America (CSA), Hollywoodnews.com and Yahoo! Movies are teaming up with the Hollywood Film Festival® and the Hollywood Awards®, to present the Hollywood Discovery Awards®, a nationwide acting competition which will celebrate the talent and star quality of two lucky winners. A blue-ribbon panel of casting directors from the Casting Society of America will select ten finalists, and their audition videos will be posted on Yahoo! Movies, where the general public will vote online for their favorite.

“We are very excited and proud that Actorcast.com, Casting Society of America , Hollywoodnews.com, and Yahoo! Movies joined us in our quest to discover the next Hollywood Star,” stated festival founder and executive director Carlos de Abreu. “We want to ensure that we bridge the gap between established Hollywood and new talent during the 14th annual Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Awards®.”

The two winners will receive round-trip air transportation to Los Angeles, plus hotel accommodations, to receive the Hollywood Discovery Awards® at the prestigious 14th Annual Hollywood Awards® Gala, on October 25, 2010, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, in Beverly Hills, California.

“Casting Directors are always opening their doors to new and exciting performers. The Casting Society of America is pleased to bring the talent-spotting skills of our members to this nationwide competition,” said Pam Dixon, President of the CSA.

The Hollywood Awards® Gala ceremony itself is one of the most glittering nights in the film calendar and is known for launching the awards season. The Hollywood Discovery Awards® winners will have a unique opportunity to walk the red carpet and be recognized in a full room of major Hollywood players and stars. At last year’s event, attending luminaries included Kate Beckinsale, Sandra Bullock, Diablo Cody, Zooey Deschanel, Morgan Freeman, Kathleen Kennedy, Diane Kruger, Anthony Mackie, Michael Mann, Ewan McGregor, Michelle Monaghan, Steven Spielberg, Charlize Theron, Marisa Tomei, and Chris Weitz among many other Hollywood stars and executives.
