Best known as China's No. 1 film awards show, Huading Film Awards took place for the first time in Hollywood with Halle Berry, Jeremy Renner, Hans Zimmer, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Zoe Saldana in attendance.
Held at the Montalban Theater in Los Angeles on June 1, the annual event is the perfect venue for Hollywood stars to directly thank their avid Chinese fans who are supporting their films. Hosted by Chinese TV personality Olivia Xu, alongside "Elementary" star Lucy Liu, the award show honored visionary director Guillermo del Toro with Huading Film Award for Best Global Director.
Best known for his films like "Pacific Rim," "Pans Labyrinth" and "Hellboy," the Mexican filmmaker will receive the award together with "Sons of Anarchy" star for his work in the biker drama series. The British hunk was awarded the Best Global Emerging Actor Award and also stars in del Toro's upcoming thriller movie, the actor and filmmaker's second collaboration.
