1. Wide exterior shot of The Beverly Hilton hotel
2. “Hollywood Awards” poster
3. Wide of arrivals line
4. Set-up shot of actor Aaron Eckhart
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Aaron Eckhart/Actor, on the significance of the Hollywood Awards:
“Yeah, I mean, this is when, the fall movies are when the Academy Award movies start coming out. And, so, to have a film festival that honors those films and the people in them, it’s a good start. If a film’s got buzz, it’s a good place to just kind of anchor that buzz, to get it started, get the ball rolling, and to get into everybody’s ear right now, it’s important.”
6. Actors Robert Duvall and James Franco chat on arrivals line
7. Fashion shot of actress Milla Jovovich
8. Actress-director Jodie Foster poses for photographers
9. Set-up of actress Helena Bonham Carter
10. SOUNDBITE (English) Helena Bonham Carter/Actress, on award-season prospects for her film “The King’s Speech”:
“I mean, you know, I’m not going to presume anything. Well, certainly I think Colin and Geoffrey should be nominated and should win. But I think I’d probably just leave them (laughs). I’m just in the background. I really don’t… you know. I’m sure, they’ll, hopefully, get what they deserve.”
11. Set-up shot of actress Hilary Swank
12. SOUNDBITE (English) Hilary Swank/Actress, on what it’s like to do the award-season gauntlet:
“You can’t complain, really. To be a part of a film that you feel so passionately about, that’s getting recognized in any way, shape or form. It’s a great feeling.”
13. Set-up actor Robert Duvall
14. SOUNDBITE (English) Robert Duvall/Actor:
“Well, I mean, years ago I won an Oscar for ‘Tender Mercies.’ And I don’t think we did all this back then. We didn’t do all this kind of publicity. I guess it’s more of what’s expected now. Whatever it takes, it takes. I mean, I’m proud of the film. That’s the main point.”
15. Set-up shot actor Sean Penn
16. SOUNDBITE (English) Sean Penn/Actor, on curing the crisis in Haiti:
“It’s going to be a very long time. The mathematics itself suggests that. There have been 5,000 temporary shelters put in Port Au Prince alone, to re-establish the same number people out of the camps back into housing, we’re talking about a need for 400,000. And then there are spatial issues related to the amount of floors of buildings that went down. So, this is something that is fixable. It’s just going to take a lot of will, patience and continued support from donors and from nations. The Haitian people are astonishingly resilient. But this is not going to be overnight.”
17. Set-up shot actor-director Sylvester Stallone
18. SOUNDBITE (English) Sylvester Stallone/Actor-Director, on the fairy-tale moment of his career:
“I think it was at the Directors Guild when they were screening ‘Rocky,’ and everyone walked out. There was no applause. There was nothing. And, before that, there had been a few screenings around town, and everything, I said, ‘Wow! This is a sure thing.’ Then when it got in front of the pros, it was dead. And I walked out of the theatre, I go, ‘Wow. That was over. We’re done.’ And my mother was with me at the time, I said, ‘Man, we bombed. The dream is over.’ And then when we went down the escalator, all 300 people were waiting (for me). I went, ‘Damn.’ That was a shock. Talk about emotions.'”
