All eyes were on Angelina Jolie at the Hollywood Film Awards. 

On Sunday night, the Academy Award winner ended her weekend at The Beverly Hilton Hotel for the momentous event, channeling an Old Hollywood movie star in a robe-inspired Jenny Packham gown and minimal jewelry. Red lips and matching crimson nails gave her all-silver look a pop of color, while her voluminous hair only added to the elegant ensemble.

Jolie took the stage to accept the Hollywood Foreign Language Film Award for First They Killed My Father and delivered a touching speech in honor of the Cambodian people featured in the documentary.

"When the Khmer Rogue took over the country, they targeted and tortured artists," she began. "The vast majority of them were slaughtered for their voices and for their allegiance. To be a Cambodian artist, for many, has not really been very easy. Every single Cambodian crew member was affected by this war. And yet, they stepped forward bravely to tell their stories through art. So for all the regime did to destroy art and artists in Cambodia, they failed. This is for everyone back home in Cambodia. They made this film. This is for them."

But Jolie wasn't the only shining star, as it was an important night for some of our favorite celebrities on the big and small screens. Jake Gyllenhaal picked up the Hollywood Actor Award for his role in Stronger and Shailene Woodley honored Kate Winslet for her work in Wonder Wheel.

"Her passion, her enthusiasm for filmmaking was contagious," Woodley said of Winstlet. "The crew, all of us, had no choice but to reevaluate all of our narratives and paradigms around filmmaking and realize how lucky we are and how much we adore being in this industry, because of her passion."

She added, "This is a woman who shows up every single day with honesty and authenticity, and I personally believe that's why she's such a fantastic, magnificent, compelling actor."

Hilariously, Winslet shared a kiss with Allison Janney on stage.

And the evening's style didn't disappoint either. Dakota Johnson was suited up in cherry Calvin Klein separates and Winslet slipped on an Elie Saab jumpsuit with a lace bodice. Meanwhile, Carey Mulligan continued the carpet's love for Raf Simons in a red Calvin Klein midi dress.
