The entire movie world has descended on Long Island for the annual Hampton's Film Festival and Saturday was the Chairman's Reception. 

The Hampton's looked more like Hollywood as movie heavy hitters showed up at the Chairman's Reception in East Hampton.  

"It's really wonderful sort of to see one of my children be in the Hamptons Film Festival," said Stuart Suna, HIFF chairman. "I have a daughter Roe, 16, and another daughter Zoe who's 20. But seeing this festival as one of my children grow and blossom -- it's really exciting." 

Newlyweds Alec and Hilaria Baldwin like the movie "Amore" in the festival but their favorite love story? 

"It's the one we're doing right now," said actor Hilaria Baldwin. "It's the real life, love movie. Everyday is a love movie."  

Dree Hemingway has her breakout role in the street. She's on Variety's "Top 10 to Watch" list you can say. Creativity is in her genes. 

She was asked about being the granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway and how has he inspired her work.

"I think one of the things I've definitely taken from him is the exploration and being able to travel and being privileged enough to, which is amazing," said Hemingway.  

New mom Sienna Miller came to the Hamptons for the very first time to support her film, "The Girl."

"I play Tippi Hedren in a film called "The Girl. "It's about the making of "The Birds" an Alfred Hitchcock film," said Miller.

Garnering the most attention at the festival is the Silver Lining Playbook starring Bradley Cooper. He's getting Oscar buzz, speaking of … 

"What's my favorite Oscar movie of all time? Casablanca," said Hawk Koch, president of the Academy

    LL Cool J stays true to hip hop roots

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.

    "Get on Up" is in theaters now. The film chronicles the career of James Brown, who had a special connection to Harlem and New York. Billy Mitchell is the in-house historian at the historic Apollo Theater. He says the Apollo was a second home to Brown, as it was here where he became an international superstar who appealed to all. But Brown's NYC legacy stretches even further.
