The Hollywood F.A.M.E. Awards, a celebration of Film, Art, Music and Entertainment, stands on it’s own as the first officially recognized opening ceremony for awards show season in Hollywood. Each year, candidates with long and distinguished careers are submitted for consideration to the HFA Advisory Board to receive one of only 10 of these very special awards.
2017 represents the 11th year of the Hollywood F.A.M.E. Award presentations. Since it’s inception 11 years ago, some of the most recognizable public figures in the world have accepted these awards. The first HFA recipient in 2007 was Stanley Kramer, the late filmmaker whose career spanned 4 decades that included four Oscar’s and 16 nominations. Since then, the Hollywood F.A.M.E. Awards have honored former President Jimmy Carter, who accepted the award for Lifetime Humanitarian in 2010; former U.S. Senator and current Secretary of American Battle Monuments Commission, Max Cleland for his best selling book “Heart of a Patriot”; film directors, Cass Warner of Warner Sisters Inc and the Warner Bros. family and James Dudelson; actors Sally Kirkland, Leilani Sarelle, Hector Luis Bustamante, Larry Hankin, Booboo Stewart and HFA Rising Star, Nathin Butler.
