It wouldn't be summer in Los Angeles without a trip (or 2 or 3) to the Hollywood Bowl. Nestled against the backdrop of the sprawling Hollywood Hills and infamous white city sign, the nearly 18,000-seat amphitheater is the perfect locale to listen to the likes of Tchaikovsky’s classical compositions, view the annual July 4th fireworks spectacular, participate in the beloved Grease sing-a-long and see legendary acts like Radiohead, Stevie Wonder and Hall & Oates. And no outing to the Bowl would be complete without enjoying a picnic under the balmy California sun. Thankfully, there are a surplus of eateries around Los Angeles offering pre-made and custom options for those Bowl bound.

Mother's Day: the one day of the year offspring are expected to stop being selfish for 24 hours and display appreciation for the number one woman in their lives. For starters, your mom sacrificed a killer figure to birth you, and that was just the beginning. Don’t you think she deserves more than a card you bought at Arco and dropped in the mail, or some lame breakfast at the local dive? Face it: she was the woman who told you that you were beautiful during your horrific awkward years (despite your irrational mood swings and tempers), the woman who gave you advice that was annoyingly always right, and the woman who was your biggest fan when you felt like you had struck out. Your mom deserves to be treated like Queen Bee, and we’re here to help you out.

From the more than 150 entries, a panel of independent judges reviewed each film, narrowing the field to 37, all of which had the opportunity to be screened on Saturday. Awards were handed out to the top film in a variety of categories, as well as the honor of "Best In Show."
