Oscar hopefuls step out at Hollywood Film Awards

The countdown to Oscars revved up on Monday, as a parade of stars stepped out for the 17th annual Hollywood Film Awards.

The non-televised event, held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, brought out a bevy of honorees -- Matthew McConaughey, Sandra Bullock, Jake Gyllenhaal, Julia Roberts and Harrison Ford among them -- and other famous faces came out to present those stars with their awards.

Kanye West was on hand to present the Hollywood Breakout Director Award to "12 Years a Slave" helmer Steve McQueen, calling the film "extremely moving." (After his appearance at the gala, West flew to San Francisco, where he proposed to girlfriend Kim Kardashian.)

McConaughey gave a charming speech while accepting the Hollywood Actor Award from "Dallas Buyers Club" co-star Jennifer Garner. Jared Leto also picked up the Hollywood Breakout Performance Award for his role in the film.

"It's crazy what happens when people find out that you look great in a skirt. You get invited to all the cool parties," he joked of his portrayal of an HIV-positive, transgender woman.

The Hollywood Supporting Actress Award went to Roberts for "August: Osage County" (which also won the Hollywood Ensemble Award). Taking the stage after a lengthy introduction from Sean Penn, she thanked her husband, Danny Moder, calling him "the singular man who got me out of the house and on a plane to Oklahoma to do this [movie] -- and it made me believe in myself in a whole brand new way."

"Star Trek Into Darkness" picked up the Hollywood Movie Award, while Gyllenhaal received the Hollywood Supporting Actor Award for "Prisoners" and Ford took home the Hollywood Career Achievement honor. Lupita Nyong'o won the New Hollywood Award for her role in "12 Years a Slave," and Bullock went home with the Hollywood Actress Award for "Gravity," thanking the Hollywood community as she accepted the prize.

"The Hollywood I know has allowed me so many great moments," she said. "It's allowed me to be a better parent. It's allowed me to take care of my family. It's allowed me to work with crew members who will never get the credit [they deserve]."
