BEVERLY HILLS — With talk of televising the Hollywood Film Awards Gala next year, stars at Monday's ceremony enjoyed what could be their last unedited award show.

Julia Roberts accepted her supporting actress award barefoot and multiple stars, including Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Jack Black and Jane Fonda spouted expletives freely.

Launching the awards season, the 17th annual Hollywood Film Awards, held at The Beverly Hilton, brought together a slew of A-list stars to toast accomplishments — and share laughs.

Kanye West kicked off the ceremony by presenting Steve McQueen with the "Hollywood Breakout Director Award."

"I've arrived!" said McQueen, who directed "12 Years a Slave."

Black presented the screenwriter award to Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and Richard Linklater, the trio behind "Before Midnight." On-stage Delpy and Hawke quibbled as Delpy bumped Hawke away from the microphone with her hips. Said Linklater, "This is why we don't improvise in the movie."

When presenting Michael De Luca with his producer award, "Captain Phillips" newcomer Barkhad Abdi thanked him for "changing my life." Abdi played one of the Somali pirates who hijacked an American cargo ship off the Horn of Africa in 2009.

Kicking off his actor award acceptance speech with the first lines he'd uttered onscreen in 1993's "Dazed and Confused," Matthew McConaughey greeted the crowd with an aptly southern "All right, all right, all right." Star of the upcoming "Dallas Buyers Club," he said he's enjoyed playing the anti-hero and gave a special thanks to wife Camila Alves, who "makes sure I never have to look in the rearview mirror when I go to work."
