I went to the Hollywood and Hollywood area to take photos of the celebrity arrivals for the American Film Institute\’s Lifetime Achievement Awards which was honoring legendary film composer, John Williams (E.T., Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Harry Potter) this year.  While I do absolutely love Hans Zimmer because of his more rock leanings, John Williams composed the film scores of my childhood.  His themes are iconic.

I knew Steven Spielberg and George Lucas would be in attendance because of their movies having iconic themes composed by John Williams.  While waiting for the arrivals, I was hurt that no one knew who John Williams was unless you mentioned his famous scores.

I was a bit surprised to see Carrie Underwood and Tony Kanal, but the most surprising attendee was Kobe Bryant.  I mean, What?!!  Why?
