Halle Berry - Halle Berry Overwhelmed At China's Huading Film Awards In Hollywood

Oscar winner Halle Berry grew emotional on Sunday (01Jun14) as she was feted as a Global Icon at the 2014 Huading Film Awards.

The Monster's Ball beauty was the guest of honour at the Chinese prizegiving, which was held in Hollywood for the first time, and she became visibly flustered as she stepped onstage to accept the night's biggest accolade.

She told the audience, "No one is ready to receive a global icon award" and added that she was "happy for the better interpersonal relationship" between Hollywood movie stars and film fans in China, where big screen releases face stiff censorship reviews.

Other winners included British actor Orlando Bloom, who was named Best Global Movie Star for his role in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and Jeremy Renner, who earned the Best Global Supporting Actor honour for American Hustle.

Fast & Furious 6 was voted Best Global Movie of the Year, The Croods took Best Global Animated Movie and Guillermo del Toro claimed the Best Global Director award for his sci-fi hit Pacific Rim.

Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana and Charlie Hunnam also received prizes at the Hollywood ceremony, which was beamed live from the Montalban Theater to more than 800 million viewers in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, while movie composer Hans Zimmer picked up a Lifetime Achievement honour.

The event was co-hosted by actress Lucy Liu and Chinese Tv personality Olivia Xu.
