Two-time Oscar-winning actor Robert De Niro is set to receive the Hollywood supporting actor award at the 16th Hollywood Film Awards for his performance in David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook." In the film, De Niro plays the Philadelphia Eagles-obsessed father of a troubled young man (Bradley Cooper).
"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 performance on camera, as well as his intense off-camera preparation and study of the characters he brings to life," said Carlos de Abreu, founder and executive director of the Hollywood Film Awards, in a statement Tuesday morning.
The Hollywood Film Awards take place Oct. 22 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
The Los Angeles Times sponsors the Hollywood Film Awards.
