Acclaimed Director Bennett Miller To Be Honored At Hollywood Film Festival's Awards

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The 15th annual Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Film Awards, presented by Starz Entertainment, have announced that director Bennett Miller will be honored with the " Hollywood Director Award" for his outstanding direction on "Moneyball."

Miller will be recognized at the festival's Hollywood Film Awards Gala Ceremony, which will take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on October 24, 2011.

"With 'Moneyball,' Bennett Miller has given us a beautiful film, from what many called an 'unfilmable' book, and we're thrilled to honor him as our Hollywood Director," said Carlos de Abreu, Hollywood Film Festival Founder and Executive Director. "Bennett found the heart in this story of baseball statistics and guided the remarkable performances of Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Philip Seymour Hoffman. 'Capote' was a masterful debut, and 'Moneyball' further proves that Miller has a real gift for breathing life into complex material."

"Moneyball" is the critically acclaimed story of Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane (Pitt), who gambled on an unorthodox and revolutionary method building the ideal baseball team, based on their unique ability to score runs and win games. It has proven to be a box-office hit for Sony and is earning tremendous raves for Mr. Miller's direction and the performances of Mr. Pitt, Mr. Hill and Mr. Hoffman.

Miller earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Director for the 2005 drama, "Capote," starring Philip Seymour Hoffman in his Oscar® winning performance as Truman Capote during the research of his groundbreaking true crime novel, "In Cold Blood."  For "Capote," Miller also earned a nomination for BAFTA's David Lean Award for Direction, and a Directors Guild of America nomination for Outstanding Directorial Achievement.

Miller made the acclaimed 1998 documentary-portrait "The Cruise" about New York City tour guide Timothy 'Speed' Levitch. The film garnered considerable critical praise and notable awards, including the top prize of the International Forum at the Berlin Film Festival. The film was released theatrically by Artisan Entertainment and was released on DVD by Lions Gate Films.

The Hollywood Awards Gala launches the awards season. In the past eight years a total of 73 Oscar nominations and 27 Oscars were given to the honorees of the Hollywood Awards.
