    Hello, relizundia.

    [1] The seven deadly Hollywood's sins.
    [2] The seven deadly Hollywood sins.

    The noun 'Hollywood' functions as an adjective. Only nouns take possessive -s. You could also try rewording the sentence this way,

    [3] The seven deadly sins of Hollywood.

    Hope that helps.
