Angelina Jolie, Viola Davis, and all the A-listers who rocked the HFA red carpet

It was yet another star-studded evening in California on Sunday, as the industry’s most respected entertainers stepped out for the 21st annual Hollywood Film Awards. Taking place at the Beverly Hills Hotel, the ceremony benefitted the Motion Picture & Television Fund — a charitable organization dedicated to providing various resources amongst the entertainment community — and was hosted by James Corden for the third year in a row.

Stars like Angelina Jolie, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Mary J. Blige were recognized for their work onscreen. But the standout moment of the night was totally candid took place between actresses Kate Winslet and Allison Janney. The two shared a kiss during Winslet’s acceptance speech for the Hollywood Actress Award, where she shared her adoration of the Emmy winning comedienne with the audience.

And while Winslet and Janney certainly stole the spotlight, nearly all the attendees slayed the red carpet. From Viola Davis to James Franco, here are all of the looks that caught Hollywood’s attention.
