Stars like Margot Robbie, Eva Longoria, Natalie Portman and Zac Efron were on hand to celebrate the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 14th Annual Governors Awards.

The awards were created to host an separate, non-televised ceremony to present honorary awards to a select few ahead of the Oscars, which will be held on March 10. This year's honourees include renowned filmmaker and comedian Mel Brooks, actress Angela Bassett, and cinematographer Carol Littleton.
