HOLLYWOOD, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- Two-time Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro is to be honored at the Hollywood Film Awards for his work in David O. Russell's movie "Silver Linings Playbook."

De Niro will be presented with the Hollywood Supporting Actor Award at the 16th annual Hollywood Film Awards, organized by the Los Angeles Times, Carlos de Abreu, the event's founder and executive director, announced Tuesday.

"Robert De Niro is not only highly regarded for his body of work as an actor, producer, and director, but also for the passion, integrity, and dedication he brings to his performances on camera, as well as his intense off-camera preparation and study of the characters he brings to life. His performance in the upcoming film 'Silver Linings Playbook' is outstanding," de Abreu said in a statement.

Also to be honored at the Oct. 22 gala ceremony at the Beverly Hilton will be actress Marion Cotillard; producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner; writer/director Judd Apatow; actor John Hawkes; and actress Quvenzhane Wallis.

"We are very proud to be the first stop of the awards season. In the last nine years, a total of 85 Oscar nominations and 32 Oscars were given to the honorees of the Hollywood Film Awards," said de Abreu.
