The selection of Hollywood as the location was no accident: the event had the look and feel of a Hollywood award show, but the focus was put on American heroes, from military veterans, to Gold Star families and first responders.

Fox News prime time host Sean Hannity appeared on stage to honor the Gold Star families of the U.S. troops who were killed in a blast in Kabul in August, as the United States was withdrawing from Afghanistan after almost 20 years of war there following 9/11.

Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro gave the Patriot Award to David and Peggy Beamer, whose son, Todd Beamer, lost his life in the Flight 93 disaster on 9/11.

“I can’t tell you how happy I am to be amongst so many great Americans…we are thankful that Fox Nation remembers 9/11, remembers our son and what others did on that day and what thousands of others have done that day after 9/11 the weeks, the months, the years, the decades after 9/11 to keep us free and safe. I am so happy to see those honored this night,” said David Beamer upon accepting the award on his son’s behalf.

A portion of the ticket proceeds went to Building Homes for Heroes, which builds homes for the families of injured veterans.

The event streamed live on Fox Nation Wednesday night, and will air on Fox News on Sunday at 10 p.m. ET.
