CBS has unveiled the first batch of stars set to appear on the Eye’s inaugural Hollywood Film Awards kudocast set for Nov. 14.
Gerard Butler, Robert Duvall, Michael Keaton, Julianne Moore, Jack O’Connell, Chris Pratt, Channing Tatum, Jean-Marc Vallée, Reese Witherspoon (pictured) and Shailene Woodley are on board for the live telecast, hosted by Queen Latifah.
The Hollywood Film Awards are CBS’ effort to muscle into the film awards season that typically delivers strong ratings every year for NBC’s Golden Globe Awards telecast in January and ABC’s Oscarcast in late February or early March.
CBS will carry live pre- and post-show programs around the 8-10 p.m. live awards show, which will be tape-delayed on the West Coast. Dick Clark Prods. is producing the awards ceremony at the Hollywood Palladium.
