Hollywood's up-and-coming talent came together Friday night at LA's Club Nokia for the 13th annual Young Hollywood Awards. The new face of Miu Miu, Hailee Steinfeld, stepped out in a black and white ensemble from the brand to accept the breakthrough of the year honor from her True Grit costar Jeff Bridges. More statues went out to Style Icon Camilla Belle, in a Tom Ford suit, and Star of Tomorrow Armie Hammer, who caught up with his hilarious Parks and Recreation star pal Aziz Ansari. Camilla stuck close by her supposed real-life leading man, Topher Grace. Grey's Anatomy's Jesse Williams was crowned TV actor of the year, while Elle Fanning had her Somewhere director Sofia Coppola's dad, Francis, on hand to witness her film actress of the year honor. Garrett Hedlund had Midnight in Paris star Michael Sheen on hand to pass on the film actor of the year distinction, and the awardees kept the good times rolling afterward with a party. The whole show airs Thursday night on the ION channel.
The Oscars ceremony is all about the action on the stage, but the star-studded audience was action-packed as well! The A-list presenters and nominees were seated in the first few rows with their dates, but there was plenty of time to mingle with friends and colleagues as well.

Hailee Steinfeld shared a few laughs with her True Grit leading men, Josh Brolin and Jeff Bridges, at a Berlin photocall for the movie yesterday. Jeff and Hailee headed to Germany to reunite with Josh after attending the Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon in LA earlier this week. Hailee and Jeff each earned a nod for their work in the western, which is also up for best picture. Matt Damon, who will spend this weekend in NYC doing press for The Adjustment Bureau with his dueling healthy-cover costar Emily Blunt, wasn't able to join his cast members in Europe. Even without Damon, the trio helped the movie on its final promotional push before the Oscars.
Colin Firth, James Franco, Mark Ruffalo, Javier Bardem, Jeff Bridges, and Jesse Eisenberg were among the best actor nominees who dressed up for yesterday's Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon in Beverly Hills. The men joined the female contenders for a celebratory afternoon, but before sitting down for the meal, they stopped by the interview room to chat with the press. James Franco talked about what he and Anne Hathaway will bring to the table as cohosts at this year's ceremony, while Jesse Eisenberg sang the praises of Mark Zuckerberg, whom he met for the first time earlier this month. Javier, who was spotted admiring Natalie Portman's engagement ring and congratulating her inside the luncheon, said he felt "protected" by his circle of famous friends and fans. While this year's competition in both the leading and supporting categories is stiff, Jeff said he thinks Colin will take home the award for best actor in a leading role for his work in The King's Speech.
Ben Affleck joked around with his sunglasses-wearing costar from The Town, Jeremy Renner, yesterday afternoon at a BAFTA Los Angeles Tea Reception held in the the Four Seasons Hotel. The duo were fresh off a night spent at Friday's Critics' Choice Awards, where Ben spent a good chunk of the evening kissing and hugging his lovely wife Jennifer Garner. Michelle Williams was a lucky girl in the middle of a director sandwich, as she chatted with Blue Valentine's Derek Cianfrance and The King's Speech's Tom Hooper. Andrew Garfrield got lots of love from his Spider-Man leading lady Emma Stone at the CCAs, but he stayed close to his girlfriend Shannon Woodward, who's also good friends with Robert Pattinson. He was happy to be in the same place as so many of Hollywood's A-List, saying, "It's nice being in a room with such inspiring, wonderful people to talk to." Nicole Kidman, meanwhile, didn't bring her husband Keith Urban, but she was seen animatedly talking with Black Swan mastermind Darren Aronofsky. It was the latest event for the award season regulars, and most will be out again this evening for the Golden Globes — stay tuned later for photos and news from the big show!
The busy award season weekend kicked off with the annual AFI Awards in LA yesterday afternoon. The event honours its top 10 movies and TV shows of 2010, which include The Town, Inception, Black Swan, 30 Rock, Glee, and others. Ben Affleck joined Jeremy Renner to support their project after bouncing around the country from the Palm Springs International Film Festival to the National Board of Review Gala in NYC to celebrate the film this week. Natalie Portman covered her baby bump in a bright blue dress and walked the carpet ahead of director Darren Aronofsky, while her costar Mila Kunis went with white. Jon Hamm made an appearance for Mad Men and got playful with his young castmate Kiernan Shipka. Amy Adams, who represented The Fighter, took a minute to pose with Jeff Bridges and Josh Brolin, and The Kids Are All Right star Mark Ruffalo made a solo entrance.
Matt Damon had a ravishing in red Luciana by his side at the NYC premiere of True Grit last night, which was the first time she's hit the carpet since giving birth to baby Stella in late October. Matt has been shooting Contagion in chilly Chicago for the past few weeks, but now he has to take care of the promotion for his highly-anticipated new release. When he's home on the East Coast, Matt and Luciana like to take their girls for walks in Central Park, which is just part of what makes this family man one of our favorite guys of the year. The busy actor is always looking toward his next project and despite a Golden Globes snub we're still hoping his name is a big one for award season. His costar Jeff Bridges is also doing the press rounds for Tron: Legacy and he chatted with us about his wife's role in the movie and photography skills. Check out more from the event including Jeff, Gretchen Mol, Bill Hader, the Coens, and more!
Olivia Wilde and Jeff Bridges brought TRON: Legacy to London last night, attracting celebs like McFly, Alison Goldfrapp and the cast of Glee to Leicester Square. Olivia's come a long way since starring as Marissa's girlfriend on The OC, she looked stunning last night in a jewelled dress with Jeff on the red carpet. The much anticipated sequel was featured in my Must Haves, and the filmmakers have recreated Jeff Bridges' youth using CGI. Afterwards the cast went on to the Tate Modern for the laser filled afterparty.

Carey Mulligan wowed at the BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards in Century City last night. She showed just why she's been named Harper's Bazaar's Best Dressed star in her cute outfit, but was without her rumoured new love interest Tom Sturridge. Carey was joined by Dakota Fanning, who wore a floor-length Valentino gown. FabUK wants to know if you love or hate Dakota's look. Both actresses presented awards on stage, as did Marion Cotillard.
Michael Sheen was named British Artist of the Year at the ceremony, which was hosted by Stephen Fry and attended by other Brits like Vinnie Jones. Betty White and Jeff Bridges were also honoured, and were joined by stars like Jane Lynch, Rosario Dawson and Olivia Wilde.
