BET Networks and the American Black Film Festival joined forces to recognize diversity in Hollywood at a star-studded event at the Beverly Hilton Sunday.

The first ABFF Awards: A Celebration of Hollywood brought many stars out. The show was launched by the American Black Film Festival and BET – in response to the Oscars lack of diversity in this year’s nominations.

The mission of the ABFF Honors is “to celebrate Black culture by recognizing individuals, movies and television shows that have had a significant impact on American entertainment, as well as those who are proponents of championing diversity and inclusion in Hollywood.”

The event, which focuses on individuals, television programs and movies of 2015 that celebrate black culture, honored Diahann Carroll with the Hollywood Legacy Award.

The event was hosted by Mike Epps, and producer Will Packer was honored with the Distinguished ABFF Alumni Award.

Playboy magazine’s March 2016 issue, the magazine’s first non-nude version, will make its official consumer debut with an exclusive, star-studded party in San Francisco during pro-football’s biggest weekend of the year.

The Playboy Party, always one of the weekend’s most buzzed-about events, will celebrate the future of Playboy and its newly redesigned magazine on Friday, February 5, 2016 in a transformed space within Lot A of AT&T Park.  Celebrities, athletes, and VIP guests will enjoy a DJ set by ALESSO as they mingle with 24 Playboy Playmates in Bunny Costume.  Event sponsors include Dodge and EFFEN® Vodka, with water provided by AQUAhydrate and energy by Red Bull.

Guests will arrive at the party through a time portal tunnel that takes them on a visual journey of the history of Playboy and auto sponsor Dodge.  Once inside, they will be some of the first consumers to receive copies of Playboy‘s March issue (on newsstands Friday, February 12) via an Instagram activated vending machine encouraging them to “post for a peek” of the much-hyped and newly redesigned magazine.

Specialty cocktails and bottle service by EFFEN® Vodka will be available throughout the night, along with a host of surprise elements for guests, courtesy of the brand.  Attendees will also have the chance to sample a menu of unique libations expertly made with EFFEN® Vodka, EFFEN® Black Cherry Vodka and EFFEN® Cucumber Vodka as part of a Molecular Mixology Bar curated by San Francisco cocktail den Benjamin Cooper.  A selection of sweet and savory cuisine from some of the city’s most notable food trucks, including Mozzeria, El Sur, Curveball and Pacific Puffs, will be available to guests throughout the night.

Additionally, an interactive hologram experience, featuring the Dodge 2016 Charger SRT Hellcat and 2016 Challenger SRT Hellcat, will be on display at the high-profile bash.  The powerful Hellcat duo will be part of an installation where guests can walk up to a larger-than-life animated Hellcat as it snarls, prowls, lurks, and growls while standing guard near the actual Dodge Hellcat vehicles.  The Dodge 2015 Viper GTS will also be on display at the event’s red carpet entrance.

Jamie Foxx to the rescue. No joking matter.

Oscar Winner and Comedian Jamie Foxx rescued a man from a burning vehicle fire Monday night. The A-lister’s rep confirmed to FOX411 that the actor rushed to the rescue after a fiery car crash took place outside his Los Angeles home.

According to TMZ, a car skidded and flipped and ended up outside Foxx’s gate around 8:30 p.m.

The star reportedly called 911 and then raced to the scene to help. TMZ reports Foxx told police he feared the car would explode so he dragged the driver, who had been buckled in his seat, out of the car and moved him 30 feet away from the vehicle.

Firefighters and emergency personnel reportedly arrived to the scene a short while later.

 Foxx’s rep declined to provide a statement from the actor or any further information.

Academy Award–winning actor Jamie Foxx set to play Little John in ‘Robin Hood: Origins’

Published by:

MTE5NDg0MDU1MjQyMzExMTgz

Jamie Foxx has landed a role in “Robin Hood: Origins,” a Lionsgate film that was put into production late last year, Deadline reports.

Foxx’s character is described as “more in the mold of the muscular turns he has put into films like Django Unchained than some wizened mentor.” The character is a war-weary veteran of The Crusades who starts out as distrusting of Robin Hood before warming up to him in what is being called a gritty take on the legendary story. Other cast include Taron Egerton, who plays the title role, and Eve Hewson, who is set to play Maid Marian.

Previous depictions of the film have ranged from comedy to satire, so this one is set to be a very different, more action-packed and dark version of the age-old saga. It will still be set in Sherwood Forest and it’s being directed by Otto Bathurst of Peaky Blinders fame. The most recent Robin Hood film was in 2010 and starred Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, topping $320 million worldwide at the box office.

The film is being produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s company, Appian Way Productions, as well as Safehouse’s Harold and Tory Tunnell and Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk.

Academy Award–winning Foxx hasn’t starred in a film since 2014′s Anniedeemed a flop, bringing in $62.2 million worldwide. He’s currently also set to act in a comedy crime heist film called Baby Driver, which is in pre-production, and Sleepless Night, a crime thriller currently in post-production.
