Because the group sponsors the Golden Globe movie awards, actors, directors and studios are often accused of currying favor in hopes of landing a nomination.
One of the best ways to do that is to turn out for the HFPA’s Grants Banquet, held this year at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
The event drew an all-star list of attendees that included celebs such as Sofia Vegara, Elle Fanning, Hailee Steinfeld, Channing Tatum, Kristen Bell and Nick Jonas.
Kristen Stewart passed on the event, even though she also has a new picture out “Camp X-Ray.”
Rob is starring in two picture this year that might draw the attention of awards committees. “The Rover,” is his action/adventure film starring Guy Pearce. It’s about two misfits struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic world set in the Australian outback.
His second feature is a David Cronenberg mind fuck, “Maps to the Stars.” Rob plays a disaffected limo driver who chauffeurs around some self-affected Hollywood celebrities.
A Golden Globe nomination would provide a nice lift for his career. Rob has said he still feels he hasn’t received validation as an actor.
