| August 21, 2018 | Parties

Hollywood put their heart on their sleeve and their money where their mouth is at the annual Hollywood Foreign Press Association Grants Banquet on August 9 at The Beverly Hilton. William H. Macy served as emcee of the evening, where more than $3 million was granted to various worldwide charities and educational institutions. Steve Carell presented a $250,000 grant to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), and John Cho accepted a grant on behalf of the Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment. Guests and presenters including Lena Waithe, Alfre Woodard, and Charlize Theron were treated to a stellar performance by Cynthia Erivo, who brought the house down with her rendition of The Wiz’s “Home.”
