    The Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Awards, presented by Starz, are pleased to announce that two-time Oscar winner and former Wyclef Jean adversary Sean Penn will be recognized for his outstanding humanitarian achievements at the festival's Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony. Congrats to Penn on the achievement.

    Sean Penn will be bestowed with the "Hollywood Humanitarian Award" for his incredibly selfless and dedicated humanitarian efforts in saving lives, as well as bringing relief to the human suffering in Haiti. Penn recently engaged in a public war of words with Jean, who was attempting to run for President of his native country.

    Prior recipients of this prestigious award include director of Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, Father Rick Frechette, Nobel Peace Prize recipient and President of East Timor, Dr. Jose Ramos Horta, and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Ms. Jody Williams.

    The gala ceremony will take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on October 25, 2010.
