Hollywood Film Awards to Honor 'Coco,' 'Mudbound'


The films have been chosen to receive the animation award and breakout ensemble award, respectively, at the Nov. 5 ceremony.

Coco and Mudbound have been selected as the recipients of the animation award and the breakout ensemble award, respectively, at the upcoming Hollywood Film Awards.

The honors will be handed out Nov. 5 at a ceremony hosted by James Corden at the Beverly Hilton.

Disney-Pixar's Coco, directed by Lee Unkrich and co-directed by Adrian Molina, stars Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt in a story about a boy who, inspired by his idol, the late, great musician Ernesto de la Cruz, sets off on an adventure of music and mystery, resulting in the most unusual family reunion.

Netflix's Mudbound, directed by Dee Rees and starring Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, Mary J. Blige, Jason Mitchell, Jason Clarke, Rob Morgan and Jonathan Banks, is set in the rural American South during World War II. It revolves around two families pitted against one another by a ruthless social hierarchy, yet bound together by the shared farmland of the Mississippi Delta. 

As previously announced, Blige will receive the breakout performance actress award for her work in Mudbound.

Other honorees this year include Sam Rockwell, with the supporting actor award for his role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; Allison Janney, with the supporting actress award for her role in I, Tonya; and Timothee Chalamet, with the breakout performance actor award for his role in Call Me by Your Name.

In addition, the cast of I, Tonya — including Margot Robbie, Janney, Sebastian Stan, Paul Walter Hauser, Julianne Nicholson and Caitlin Carver — will receive the ensemble award.

Additional honorees for the 21st annual Hollywood Film Awards, produced by Dick Clark Productions, will be announced in the coming weeks.

This year's ceremony will benefit MPTF, which supports the entertainment community in living and aging well, with dignity and purpose, and in helping each other in times of need.
