Variety’s 10 Actors to Watch

Thesps to be recognized at Hollywood Awards

Variety will present its annual 10 Actors to Watch lineup for the first time onstage at the Hollywood Awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Oct. 22.

The actors are selected by a team of Variety critics, editors and reporters.

“Together, we will be able to recognize acting talents that are on their road to discovery and stardom,” Festival founder Carlos de Abreu said.

The 10 Actors to Watch event is part of Variety‘s 10 to Watch program, spotlighting emerging talents in the fields of acting, directing, screenwriting and cinematography, among others.

The honorees will be covered in Variety‘s Hollywood Awards feature section and will be included in a special Webcast series focusing on the 10 Actors to Watch at Variety.com.

The “10 to Watch” program is supervised by Steven Gaydos, Variety‘s executive editor of features.

“The Hollywood Awards have become a key night early in the awards season. Introducing our picks for emerging acting talents directly to the leaders of the film industry is exciting not just for these next-generation performers, but also for the industryites who will get the chance to personally meet and these dynamic young actors and actresses on awards night,” Gaydos said.

The 2007 Annual Hollywood Film Festival runs Oct. 16-22. The festival’s screenings take place at the ArcLight Theaters.
