Hollywood’s brightest stars came out tonight for the first-ever televised Hollywood Film Awards. The night was filled with talent, glamour and memorable speeches. Although this is the first time you could watch the entire show on TV, you didn’t see everything. Luckily, there were photographers backstage to capture all the juicy parts. Here are some of the moments that happened behind the scenes that were too fun to stay there.
