Hollywood hailed to La Jolla for Variety’s Night of the Stars Tribute during the San Diego Film Festival.

Tinseltown’s heavy hitters, including Warren Beatty and Sean Patrick Flanery, were among the celebs spotted on the red carpet during Variety’s Night of the Stars Tribute in La Jolla.

Film critics Jeffrey and Ben Lyons co-hosted the Modern Luxury San Diego-sponsored awards ceremony, which paid homage to both up-and-coming and legendary talent. After honors were handed out, guests such as Jason Mitchell and Rachel Barker toasted to the night at the Champagne-fueled afterparty.

This year’s coveted Gregory Peck Award of Excellence was presented to Annette Bening, a four-time Academy Award nominee, two-time Golden Globe winner and two-time Screen Actors Guild Award recipient, who joked that she’d rather be sleeping in her childhood S.D. home (where her parents still reside) than at a black-tie fete. The head-turning Kate Beckinsale was honored with a nod for her mastery of versatile roles, as were Jason Mitchell and Simon Helberg. To say the least, it was a starry night. ‒Kalah Siegel
