HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Oct. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Carlos de Abreu, founder and executive producer of the Hollywood Film Awards, announced today that Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Will Champion, and Jonny Buckland of the multiplatinum, multiple Grammy Award-winning recording act Coldplay will be honored with the Hollywood Song Award for the hit song "Atlas" from Lionsgate's (NYSE: LGF) The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack.  The award will be given at the 17 th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala Ceremony on Monday evening, October 21 st, 2013 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.  Chris Martin of Coldplay is accepting the award on the band's behalf as well as performing the song.

"The Hollywood Film Awards is thrilled to present the Hollywood Song Award to a band as globally respected and prolific as Coldplay," said de Abreu. "They continue to build their legacy and, with 'Atlas' marking the first time they have recorded for a motion picture, we cannot think of an artist better deserving of this honor."
