Oscars: Pedro Almodovar’s “Skin I Live In” Leads Goya Nominees

15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Kicks Off Season of Awards Shows

The 15th annual Hollywood Awards took place on Monday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, kicking off a months-long season of self-congratulations and chicken dinners shared by the same core group of people.
