Green Book, starring Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali and Linda Cardellini, has been selected to receive the Hollywood Ensemble Award at the 22nd annual Hollywood Film Awards, to be held Nov. 4 at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Its screenplay, written by Peter Farrelly, who also directed, along with Nick Vallelonga and Brian Currie, will be recognized with the Hollywood Screenwriter Award.
The film recounts the friendship that developed between musician Don Shirley (Ali) and driver Tony Lip (Mortensen) as they drove through the American South in the early ’60s. Winner of the People’s Choice Award at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, the film was produced by Participant Media and DreamWorks Pictures and will be released by Universal on Nov. 21.
The Hollywood Awards is produced by Dick Clark Productions, which shares a parent company with The Hollywood Reporter.
