The average awards night can be a stressful affair if you’re a Hollywood A-lister. You worry about what to wear, if you might bump into any exes, not to mention practising your acceptance speech and your “generous loser” face in case you get caught on camera.
So it must have been a relief for the stars who stepped out at the 2015 Hollywood Film Awards. With the winners announced in advance, and no TV cameras present, it was a chance for them to bask in the glory and be celebrated by some of their famous friends.
Some – such as Channing Tatum and Jenna-Dewan Tatum, and Johnny Depp and Amber Heard used it as an excuse for a “date night”.
While for newer faces on the Hollywood scene, such as Britain’s own James Corden, it was a chance to hang out with some of the big stars of the silver screen.
