Then the hostess pointed out Steve Carell in the audience. "I can see Steve Carell there, remembering his first." Carell nodded sheepishly. Latifah followed up, "Buick or Chevy?" 

"Chevy," the Foxcatcher star mouthed without missing a beat.

"I know what all of you are thinking: 'Did I miss the first 17 Hollywood Film Awards? Did I not set my DVR?' " Latifah told viewers. "Not many movie fans really knew about this show. That’s the problem when the event isn’t on television. But that changes tonight."

The event's atmosphere wouldn't change, though, she continued. "This year will be no different. It’s a party, so drink up, unless you've already started drinking, in which case just keep going," she said.
