Hollywood is a district in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.. Due to its fame and cultural identity as the historical centre of movie studios and stars, the word "Hollywood" is often used as a metonym for the American film and television industry. In fact, one can safely regard Hollywood, or the American film industry, as the pinnacle of mainstream cinema.
