BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF. (AP) - The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is giving away more than a million dollars.

The group behind the Golden Globe Awards presented $1.5 million in grants to dozens of arts organizations at a private luncheon Thursday at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Stars such as Leonardo Di Caprio, Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Bacon, Taylor Lautner and Lea Michele helped present and accept the gifts.

Michele said she was “humbled by the generosity” of the international reporters group, then beamed as she introduced and hugged “Twilight” hunk Lautner. He admitted to “blushing up here a little bit” as he accepted a grant on behalf of the Sundance Institute.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has given away more than $13 million in grants and scholarships over the past 17 years.
