The group behind the Golden Globes is giving more than a million dollars to arts organizations around the country.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association presented grants to 29 film schools and nonprofit groups at a private, star-studded luncheon Tuesday at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Warren Beatty, Rose McGowan, Eva Longoria Parker and Dylan McDermott were among the celebrities accepting grants on behalf of organizations such as the Lollipop Theatre Network, which provides movie screenings for hospitalized children, and the Film Foundation, which preserves historic films.

The foreign-press group has given more than $10 million in grants over the past 15 years, according to its president, Philip Berk.
