James Corden to Host 2016 Hollywood Film Awards

Dick Clark Productions has tapped James Corden to return as host of the Hollywood Film Awards on Nov. 6 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The awards ceremony, now in its 20th year, is touted as the official launch of the awards season.

“Entertaining a room full of the world’s biggest stars is no easy feat, but James Corden commanded the room at last year’s Hollywood Film Awards with incredible grace and wit,” said Allen Shapiro, CEO of Dick Clark Productions. “We are thrilled to have him return for a second consecutive year as host of the Hollywood Film Awards.”

Corden has been hosting “The Late Late Show” since March 23, 2015. The show is best known for its viral carpool karaoke series, and is nominated for two Emmys this year for “Outstanding Variety Music or Comedy Special” and “Outstanding Interactive Program.” Corden will also be a presenter at the 2016 show on Sept. 18.

The comedian recently hosted the Tony Awards in 2016, which took place shortly after the tragic Orlando shooting. Variety TV critic Maureen Ryan called Corden an “energetic” and “affable host,” adding that his remarks on Orlando were “short but effective”

Corden starred opposite Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp and Emily Blunt in “Into the Woods.” His additional film credits include “Begin Again,” with Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo; and “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People,” with Jeff Bridges.
