Hollywood -- best known for its harmful Hollywood values and lack of intellectual achievement or productivity -- is a district located in the city of Los Angeles, California. It is the historic base of the movie industry, although the studios have mostly moved out. "Hollywood" now generally refers to the entertainment industry and its culture, which is based primarily in Southern California.
