Tinseltown has officially kicked off awards season! The 2014 Hollywood Film Awards took place Friday night and the city's brightest stars turned out in full force to celebrate their movie industry peers.
Queen Latifah hosted the ceremony at The Palladium, where the winners, from rising stars like Shailene Woodley, who took home the Breakout Performance Actress award, to veterans like Michael Keaton, who earned the Career Achievement award, were honored. The annual event typically launches the film world into high gear for a flurry of award shows, and for the first time in its 17-year history, it was televised.
So what were the night's biggest moments? Honorary Dame Angelina Jolie gave a heartfelt introductory speech for Jack O'Connell, the star of her new film, Unbroken (which she directed). O'Connell graciously accepted the New Hollywood award from his "esteemed boss, and good friend, her ladyship," as he put it. And Kristen Stewart presented her Still Alice co-star and on-screen mom Julianne Moore with the Hollywood Actress award.
Jennifer Lopez earned some laughs as she presented the Hollywood Animation award for How to Train Your Dragon 2 (she mistakenly said "how to drain your dragon)" and an always charming Gerard Butler accepted the trophy on behalf of the film's creators. Benedict Cumberbatch's The Imitation Game was the biggest winner of the night, with four wins—including the Hollywood Actor award for the newly engaged star.

The Wild actress looked anything but in this noir and rouge silk chiffon strapless tea length dress by J. Mendel.

Attending with her husband Channing Tatum, who most recently stars in the lauded Foxcatcher, Dewan-Tatum was all smiles (and stunning to boot) in this Reem Acra number.

Clad in white hot Balenciaga, Moore carried off the modern look with cool grace.
5. Shailene Woodley
The Divergent star played it pretty in this low V-neck Valentino gown, which was the closing look from the Spring 2015 collection. She would later accept the Breakthrough Actress award.
6. Keira Knightley
It doesn't get more put together from the hair to the heels to the lovely, ladylike silhouette. Knightley is a knockout in this Giambattista Valli creation.
7. Hilary Swank
The Oscar-winning actress shines bright in this embellished Oakwell Couture column.
8. Queen Latifah
All hail the Queen, who was the splendid host of the evening in Badgley Mischka.

10. Jennifer Lopez
Working the white for fall trend, Lopez's Zuhair Murad creation came with an illusion netted top.
11. Eddie Redmayne and Jared Leto
This just might be the perfect contrast between proper polish (Redmayne in Valentino) and bohemian eccentricity (Leto).
12. Felicity Jones
Black magic! The English Jones is the darling of the early awards season in this gorgeous Alexander McQueen confection. The special touch? The elegantly done sheer skirt.
13. Robert Downey Jr.
The Iron Man was a style superhero, playing with both color and pattern.
14. Angelina Jolie
Proving that sometimes understatement makes the strongest impact, Jolie wowed in a strapless black gown.
