The ceremony marks the start of a long run of awards shows in Los Angeles leading up to the Oscars on February 28, 2016, including the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The ceremony celebrates many films which are not yet on general release but are expected to feature prominently in the awards race.
The winners are all announced in advance and the ceremony is not televised.
British director Tom Hooper, who is responsible for The King's Speech and Les Miserables, was given the Hollywood Director Award for his new movie The Danish Girl, which stars Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne as a transgender pioneer in the 1920s.
Redmayne's co-star Alicia Vikander was presented with the Hollywood Breakout Actress Film for her role as his wife.
Speaking on the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the Swedish actress said: "I've only been in this room once before in my life and that was three years ago at the Golden Globes with a foreign film.
"I thought it was an experience I could tell my grandkids about, that I went to this Hollywood awards thing and saw all these people I looked up to and admired.
"I never thought I would work with some of the directors and actors that I met here and to be back is extraordinary."
The Hollywood Breakout Actor Award was given to Australian star Joel Edgerton for his performance as a corrupt FBI agent in Black Mass.
