Christopher Plummer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Felicity Jones latest Hollywood Film Awards honorees – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ever since Summit Entertainment screened Jonathan Levine’s moving comedy “50/50” ahead of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, I’ve been holding out hope that Joseph Gordon-Levitt could find his way into the Oscar race for his nuanced, heartfelt performance as a young man diagnosed with cancer.

The entire film brims with outstanding performances, from Seth Rogen playing to his strengths (for a valid reason) to Anjelica Huston in a feature-stealing role as Gordon-Levitt’s supportive mom. And while the Oscar landscape’s still establishing its contenders, Gordon-Levitt has picked up what I hope if the first of several awards still to come.

The 15th annual Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Film Awards, presented by Starz Entertainment and hosted by this Web site’s parent company, has chosen to honor Gordon-Levitt with its Hollywood Breakthrough Actor Award this year for his performance in “50/50.” He’ll accept the award during the annual ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on Oct. 24.

In addition, Christopher Plummer (“Beginners”) will receive this year’s Hollywood Supporting Actor Award, and Felicity Jones (“Like Crazy”) has been named the recipient of this year’s New Hollywood Award.

The awards show has been ramping up announcements as it heads to its presentation. Other winners already announced include: The cast of “The Help” for the Hollywood Ensemble Award; Johnny Depp and Gore Verbinski’s “Rango” for the Hollywood Animation Award; Oscar nominee Emmanuel Lubezki (“The Tree of Life”) for the Hollywood Cinematographer Award; Oscar winner Stephen Mirrione (“The Ides of March”) with the Hollywood Editor Award; Oscar nominee James Murakami (“J. Edgar”) for the Hollywood Production Designer Award; and Oscar winner Scott Farrar (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”) for the Hollywood Visual Effects Award.
