H’wood club polishes up for Apples

The Hollywood Women’s Press Club is readying its 57th annual Golden Apple Star awards luncheon to honor outstanding actors for professional and humanitarian achievement at a ceremony at 12:30 p.m. Sunday at the Beverly Hilton hotel.

Hal Kanter will be master of ceremonies at the affair, and funds raised will be contributed to the Hollywood Women’s Press Club Scholarship Foundation for journalism students.

Actress Mary Tyler Moore has been announced as winner of this year’s Louella Parsons award, named for the organization’s founder. Winners are selected in six award categories: Hollywood Legend Award, Star of the Year (male and female), Discovery Star of the Year (male and female) and the Sour Apple Award.

Nominees for this year’s awards include Sylvester Stallone, Brad Pitt, Kirstie Alley, Matt Damon, Tori Spelling and Bai Ling. Noms for the Sour Apple include Marv Albert and Pamela Lee.

There already are 500 reservations for this year’s program, but many tickets still are available. The fete’s official sponsor is Norwegian Cruise Lines, which will donate two free cruise vacations to be auctioned at the luncheon.

For information about tickets and reservations, call (310) 472-8818.
