    Ohhhhh it is so funny when you get slapped in the face with the truth re Angie and Brad’s love for each other …you still keep on lying to svae face…Honey/sweetie you and your idol lost just accept it and get a life!!!!

  • OK

    Is it a new trick? Try to stir thing and try to change some confirmed fact? What’s up with these new comments about Angie being sad and depressed? I saw this kind of comment over at Pittwatch too? What’s up? Are they trying to change the fact that not only Angie was happy during GG , But also Brad was super hot for her. They were all over each other. Why some comments here and on other blog are trying to change this fact? About Angie at Critic’s award. I read somewhere , she just had arrived that morning with jet and she probably just had jet lagged. Brad on the other hand was in L.A two day earlier and he looked more relaxed. She looked like she had a jet lagged , and she was tired , other than that , they both looked happy during Critics award as well. I saw during the show , in couple of occasion , Brad put his arm around Angie during Critics award but haven’t seen any picture of it.

  • Brad & Angie rules

    Congratulations to Brad & Angie. Another nominations. Their work have been recognized all over, hope they win.
    I hope Kate W. trophies will not make her head bigger. She is still not on Angie’s level. Angie is the best.

  • Alexkziel

    Congratulations to this beautiful couple!

    Angie looks so serene in that pic…

  • mm

    She’s scary looking!

  • mmsic

    The haters are hating because their idol Jennifer Aniston was recognized for exposing herself to the whole world,not by her acting.To be named “Woman of the Year” just because of that is so sad and pathetic.People abroad must be wondering what has America been thinking off.It is really laughable!

    Well I must say I’m 38 with two children 18 and 14. I’ve also been married almost 15 years, I’m also a business owner of 13 years. I really admire Angelina and Brad. No homewrecker here and neither is Angelina, please don’t assume the people who like Angelina are no good because some of us just don’t buy into Jen’s bs lies. If I for one minute really believed Angelina was at fault for ruining such a happy marriage I would be no fan.

    Okay one more to feed my dream of eventually being a synchronized dancing back up singer!

    Interesting that in this video that guli posted that the media noticed how Angelina had about 10 minutes on the red carpet and was basically hustled into the theatre.

    -

    I noticed in the Ross the intern video that Geyer Kosinski was holding Angelina’s hand whilst Brad was temporarily unavailable and leading her off somewhere.

    After so many years as Angelina’s manager its obvious the level of trust and real friendship between Angelina and Geyer.

    Despite the fact that Angelina is pretty tough, I can’t help noticing that both Brad and Geyer are really protective of Angelina.

    HAI Omnistat2 Thermostats Donated to Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation

    HAI’s ENERGY STAR Omnistat2 Thermostat to be Installed in 150 Make it Right Homes
    New Orleans-based HAI (Home Automation, Inc.) announced their donation of 150 ENERGY STAR Omnistat2 Thermostats to Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Foundation, which was launched in December of 2007 to build 150 affordable, sustainable homes in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward for residents impacted by Hurricane Katrina.

    “HAI just completed its most successful sales year ever in 2008. We are happy to be in a position to help promote energy efficiency while being able to lend support for those needing help in our own backyard,” says Jay McLellan, HAI President. “The Omnistat2 programmable thermostats help to reduce bills and allow homeowners to view weekly usage levels of their A/C and heating units. The simple programming feature lets homeowners pre-set temperatures for different times and days of the week, based upon their needs. We see the ENERGY STAR Omnistat2 thermostat as a perfect fit for eco-friendly homeowners.”

    “On behalf of the Make It Right Foundation, we are thrilled to be part of HAI’s endeavors,” says Tom Darden, Executive Director of the Make It Right Foundation. “We rely on the support of organizations like HAI and cannot thank them enough for helping us to rebuild our great city. We are proud to be working with companies all over the world, but it’s especially beneficial when a quality local company like HAI is able to participate.”

    The movie is beautifully made with glorious cinematography, a subtle but haunting musical score, seamless CGI special effects, and wonderful performances from the star studded cast. And no wonder, given how long it took to be produced. Loosely adapted from a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the film began development in 1994 with Tom Cruise and John Travolta set to star at various stages.

    It’s a truly special film; quirky, magical and bursting with sincerity. A rarity today, where cliché ridden Hollywood stinkers reign supreme.

    As Benjamin notes, nothing lasts. This is perhaps a meditation on the fleeting nature of youth or life itself. But through his travels and accompanying adventures, he lives his life with a dignified fearlessness that is truly inspiring. Maybe because he knows, better than most could, the precious gifts that youth, and life, truly are.

    Check out BB this weekend. Great Movie

    Director David Fincher flawlessly weaves many elements and characters into a seamless three hours that feels much shorter. Capturing the romance and mystery of New Orleans, Fincher makes use of the bayous, brothels and vibrant culture to encapsulate its grimy intrigue and appeal. He turns simple events such as a boat on water, a kiss or a casual conversation into a majestic happenstance ripe with deeper meaning.

    Pitt embraces the role, first playing an elderly man with all of the physical maladies of age while capturing the wonderment and joy of discovery associated with youth. Later, as he continues to age backward, he shifts gears and presents the physical prowess and exuberance of youth while offering the burdened continence of a man with knowledge seemingly beyond his years.

    Cate Blanchett plays Daisy, Benjamin’s love interest, who flits in and out of his life while remaining an omnipresent influence. While Blanchett graces the screen with timeless elegance and easily captures the role of Daisy, an aspiring ballet dancer, it is not until late in the film, after her character sheds the shallow aloofness of her youth and lays bare her true compassion, that the audience is able to warm up to her.

    Taraji P. Henson gives a strong supporting portrayal of Queenie, Benjamin’s circumstantial mother. Henson does a superb job of exemplifying the tenderness of a maternal figure with a constant saucy wit that lends humour to a film that is often laden with loneliness.

    3) The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – Based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and directed by David Fincher, a man ages backwards. Brad Pitt starts the film as an eighty year old infant, so he is only good-looking in the last half of the movie.

    Another weekend, another ex Friends sitcom star and a Dog Movie. Gotta love Hollyweird. That’s one way to keep those Friends ex castmate employed, make them 16th fiddle to a dog. I kid!!!

    Four films join full frame
    ‘Notorious,’ ‘Valentine,’ ‘Hotel,’ ‘Mall Cop’ open
    s January the new “it” month at the box office?

    Historically, January is one of the quietest months of the year in terms of new releases, with Christmas holdovers and specialty films taking up most of the oxygen.

    But not this year. Today, four wide releases open as the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend gets under way: Sony comedy “Paul Blart: Mall Cop,” Lionsgate’s “My Bloody Valentine 3-D,” Fox Searchlight’s biopic “Notorious” and Paramount’s kid comedy “Hotel for Dogs.”

    ***********
    Paramount’s launching “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” in Brazil and Mexico after it grossed $8 million in Australia. “Slumdog Millionaire,” which is being handled mostly by an array of local distribs, opens in France; that pic has $8 million from Australia, Italy and the U.K.

  • Mae

    They are over-actors and they can’t even stop themselves from over-acting at events. I don’t know what a troll or haters are I guess they are people that don’t agree with people that say I LOVE BRAD AND ANGELINA! What a way to bully others and their opinions. I’m sure Angelina would be proud of these tactics, just look what she has done with Brad. And please don’t bring Jennifer into this the only ones that ever do are Angelina fans. Weird???? I don’t think their is anything special about them beside they are good manipulators. I wonder when they will sell their “private” life again or give an interview that sounds so fake. I can see right through them . Mommy dearest!!!!

    Oh, and don’t forget that UNCOOL comment, how can I forget that, that’s my four year old son’s favorite word when you take away his favorite toy….and hearing that from a 39 year old woman, that’s deep….really deep!

  • challenge for the trools

    Brad and Angelina have been nominated this year for all the major awards to date: CCA, GG, SAG (by their peers), and BAFTA. They are part of an extremely select group of 5-6 actors nominated for these wards in any year, being nominated for any of these awards is totally prestigious and a supreme honor, they have been nominated so far for all announced.

    In what year what your idol, the dog lover WHO SAID THAT NO MAN CAN LOVE HER LIKE HER DOGS DO, nominated for all 4 of these awards? NEVER EVER!!

    It does not matter what you come here and rant and scream and utter filth about, they are actors at the top of the pyramid and recognized by diverse groups. NOTHING ANY OF YOU LOSERS RUN HERE WITH CAN CHANGE THIS TRUTH, THIS REALITY.

    4 dam* years later and a few of you name changeing delusional Brad could have/must have loved me butts are still rushing here in the greatst haste to bleat worthless natterings of nothiness. A few of you are so filthy that you must always resort to posting excrement from the sewers of your rotting bodies.

    No wonder even the dog lover has rejected you losers. She is living the good life in her new zillion $$ home with constant beauty treatments and beach trips to Mexico. Even she is laughing at you stupid uneducated jackass*s. She long ago moved on from her past with a failed marriage to someone she did not love, and is doing just what makes her happy while some of you are still lost in her past.

    Such losers!!
