by TV News Desk - Oct 30, 2018

dick clark productions announced today that Ryan Coogler's Black Panther will receive this year's “Hollywood Film Award,” and Pixar Animation Studios' Incredibles 2 will receive the “Hollywood Animation Award” at the 22nd Annual “Hollywood Film Awards,” taking place on Sunday, November 4 at The Beverly Hilton. Both films received wide critical acclaim and broke box office records this year. Black Panther became a cultural phenomenon that has broken boundaries and created a movement, gracing the cover of Time Magazine. Black Panther had the highest grossing non-sequel opening weekend of all time, showing that diversity and representation in front of and behind the camera can equal global box-office success. Incredibles 2 marked the biggest opening weekend in history for an animated film, grossing more than $1.2 billion globally to date and garnering widespread critical acclaim. Two-time Oscar winner writer/director Brad Bird's follow up to 2004's Oscar-winning The Incredibles expands upon the original's daring concept of a family of Supers who struggle against society's fickle embrace while tasked with stopping a devious plot to undermine the public's belief and faith in government and national security. Elastigirl (Holly Hunter) this time takes center stage as the family's secret weapon, while Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) stays home to care for the children, who display increasingly curious powers of their own. (more...)
