Angelina Jolie Reacts to Golden Globes Nomination

Angelina Jolie enjoys a business lunch inside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Friday (December 16) in Hollywood.

The 36-year-old actress received some exciting news the day before – her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, is nominated for a Golden Globe Award in the Best Foreign Language Film category!

“I am grateful that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is honoring our film,” Angie said in a statement.

“This was a true collaboration and I am forever indebted to our cast and crew, who experienced their own personal tragedies in the Bosnian War and gave me an authentic perspective into the conflict,” she added. “This nomination is a tribute to the collective talent and passion of this extraordinary cast.”

The 2012 Golden Globes, hosted by Ricky Gervais, airs January 15 on NBC!

    If nominations could be bought Ticky would have an Oscar and a Tony by now. That no-talent sitcom hack will always be a presenter, never an award winner. Leatherface keep trying to convince her tv fans she is on same A-list as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Not!!! More like the D-list with Chelsea Mandler.

    Angelina Jolie never expected to receive a Golden Globe nomination for ‘In The Land of Blood and Honey’.

    The actress’ directorial debut – which tells the tale of a romance between a Serbian soldier and Bosnian Muslim woman set in the Yugoslav wars – will compete in the Best Foreign Language Category and Angelina admitted she was shocked when she heard the news on her way to the dentist with her kids.

    She told The Hollywood Reporter: ‘I was on my way and turned on my phone, and saw the subject line on an email. I thought, this can’t be. I never expected this.

    ‘Just to be able to make a film you care about and then get a distributor makes you happy.’

    Angelina shot the movie twice, once in English and again in the native languages of her cast, Bosnian, Serbran and Croatian, and the brunette beauty recently revealed she had discussed every aspect of the scripts with her actors.

    She said: ‘We all spoke about every speech and every scene, and made sure it was right and true. So everybody helped to educate me and we all adjusted the script together.’

    ‘I read a lot of books about the war. I talked to a lot of people, I watched, I listened. I just wanted to tell the real story. I wanted to be respectful of people.’

    The 69th annual Golden Globe will be held on January 15 in Los Angeles and hosted by British funnyman Ricky Gervais.

  • Huge Question

    Why is Aniston still relevant in these blogs???? I ask because she is totally played out in HW, she is about tabloid rumors and news only and have no future projects other than the 3 time pushed back wonderlust. After that she is has nothing, absolutely nothing. HW has shut the door to her and we know she’s to tight to spend her own dough unless her paid for toy buys her a role other than that I don’t see why she is even a part of anyone’s conversation anymore.

    Can we send her to HW past, please?

    ANGELINA JOLIE and BRAD PITT are building an AIDS clinic in their adopted daughter Zahara’s native Ethiopia to ensure she will always stay in touch with her African roots.

    The actress became mom to Zahara Marley in 2005 and Jolie reveals she and Pitt are in the process of establishing a medical center to treat AIDS and tuberculosis in the six-year-old’s name, similar to the Maddox Chivan Children’s Center they founded in Cambodia, where their eldest son Maddox was born.

  • bdj

    http://www.globalhealthcommittee.org/projects_ethiopia_zahara.html

    In 2011 GHC will break ground on the Zahara Center in Sebeta on the outskirts of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Zahara will use the Maddox model to address the needs of HIV infected and affected children in Ethiopia. The integrated Maddox model, the HIV counseling manual for children and expertise learned at the ground level in Cambodia will be brought to bear in Ethiopia, one of the poorest countries globally, with the second largest population in sub-Saharan Africa.

    Given the crushing burden of TB in Ethiopia, the Center will also have a major focus on children infected with TB and will be the Center of Excellence for MDR care for children in Ethiopia in collaboration with the Black Lion Hospital.

    The Zahara Center itself will be built using local sustainable methods designed by GRAFT architects who partnered with Brad Pitt in the Make it Right Foundation which is providing sustainable housing in post-Katrina New Orleans.

    # 14 TRUTH HURTS., You’re so right. The dumb twits will never get it. They’re ignorant and delusional. They think coz their idol was able to buy one crapy award few old queens voted for her, she can buy herself an Oscar or SAG. I can bet though, she has tried but they probably told her to take a hike — not qualified for one. Haha.

    Sorry ,Dolly is the dog, I mean you are happy for the new thread of Angie huh?

  • teri

    I’m so happy for you Angelina and also the whole cast.

  • a fan

    I’m convinced that those who contiually talk about the x (whether positively or negatiely) are being paid to do so.

    But back to Angie’s new film. I read that one of the original critics of the movie now says (after viewing the movie) that Angelina’s movie touched her soul. What a compliment to Angie and what she has achieved with this movie! I wish the media would talk more about that.

    This movie deserves Oscar recognition. The weak, especially women, are always victims of war. Yet it is often not talked about. Perhaps after giving Land of Blood of Honey recognition and encouraging the public to view it, people will not let politicians take them so easily into war. Perhaps men when they talk about war, they will think about their daughters, wifes, mothers, and sisters and then realize that differences must be settled in ways other than war.

    I applaud Angie for what she has done. She is a true artist, she has created a quality movie about the tragedies of war, yet leaves a war victim saying Angelina has touched her soul!

  • Doan Trang

    This is one awesome news for the day. Congrats to Angie and Brad too. Love Brangelina. And Angie’s my idol. She’s so talented and has a great personality. I love and admire her so much. I’m glad her movie received a nomination because she deserves it. (even though i hope there’ll be more nominations in the future and wins too)

    Wonder if Brad took these.. hehehe

    Angelina Jolie Natural Beauty Marie Claire

    The stunning actress and mother of six, Angelina Jolie, graces the cover of the January issue for Marie Claire. On top of being an actress, mother, and wife, Angelina is adding director onto her list of accomplishments with her film ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey.’ During her interview with Marie Claire, Angelina not only talks about her directorial debut, but also about family, friends, and “the love of her life,” Brad Pitt.

    Throughout the various photos gracing the cover as well as the inside of the magazine, Angelina shows off her natural beauty. On the cover, she dons simple make up such as light eye shadow and a soft pink lip. She is also wearing a one-sleeved blue number with a gold ring.

    Since Angelina was promoting her new film, the theme of the photos inside the magazine was Angelina as a director. The films were all shot in black and white and showed the natural beauty playing around with a camera.

    Angelina said the moral support she received from the UCLA community was critical. It was “very, very important” to her that these experts in INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS & WOMEN’S STUDIES came to see the film and shared their comments
    .
    More than anything else, she is more nervous on the reactions of the experts about the issue or subject matter of “In The land of Blood & Honey” besides the reactions of the victims of war themselves. Well, the Bosnian war victims’ associations already praised the movie after seeing it in a special screening in Sarajevo. They found it as an objective and sincere portrayal of the inter-ethnic conflict. The experts & scholars also hailed the film as “she brought life to the human element of war and the complexity of such a devastating situation”.
    .
    To be recognized by award-giving bodies is a bonus which AJ is very grateful & she is more than happy to give credit NOT for herself BUT for the collective efforts of the cast & crew as well as the people who helped her in her research to make ITLBH possible.
    .
    I am hoping that ITLBH will be shown in our country as I am very excited to watch this socially-relevant film of AJ.

  • a fan

    To # 38: I like this quote: “…The experts & scholars also hailed the film as “she brought life to the human element of war and the complexity of such a devastating situation”.

    That is what I was trying to convey in my earlier comment. The subject matter is heavy but Angie has given it a humanity. I think there is an audience for this, if the critices don’t try to undermind it.

    Angie’s statement says it all and demonstrates why an abundance of accolades, honors and praise consistently comes her way and Brad’s way as well. They are always first to recognize the hard work of others and see their efforts as a true collaboration not their individual achievement; they give back to so many on an incredible scale; they don’t whine, complain or biitch about the omnipresent tabloid press, they just ignore it and live their lives; they take nothing for granted and have said countless times they are fortunate for everything they have; they see the world without boundaries between nationalities and ethnicities, which is illustrated in the close, loving family they created; they seem to be compassionate people who really care about the lives of those who are less fortunate (UNHCR, Make it Right); they seem to be “true blue” about their interests (you can’t be traveling on behalf of the UNHCR for ten years and call it a “pr stunt”); they really seem to want to add value in the world at the end of the day; I honestly don’t know anyone else who’s as generous in Hollywood as these two. Angie told Bob Simon on 60 Minutes, “My mother was grace incarnate. I’m nothing like my mother.” I happen to think she’s just like her mother. Her mother would be incredibly proud of the family she’s created with Brad, and all her accomplishments.

    Make It Right Restores Lower Ninth Ward

    Brad Pitt and Others Rebuild New Orleans Neighborhood
    by Dustin Toney

    Melba Leggett, 54, was just one of the many displaced from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. The home she grew up in was among 5,300 houses destroyed in the Lower Ninth Ward, the mostly residential neighborhood that took the greatest amount of damage following the disaster. Her family had been living in the area for decades. The property was purchased generation from generation.

    “We left town for Baker, La., for higher ground more or less. So many people did the same thing; it became overcrowded with relatives. I had my daughter come pick us up from North Carolina,” said Leggett. “That’s where we stayed for the next three years.”

    The progress to rebuild the Lower Ninth Ward has been slow. Five years after Katrina, approximately 4,000 homes remain unlivable.

    “We have to figure out a way to get more resources and help residents that are interested in coming back and rebuilding,” said Jon D. Johnson, city councilman for the Lower Ninth Ward. “The community consisted primarily of working class and elderly people who are on fixed income. They simply could not afford to come back and rebuild even though they would like to do so.”

    Even though the local government has taken measures to restore Lower Ninth Ward, many efforts have not been effective. The infrastructure is still heavily damaged, businesses are small in number, and services are still low. Only one elementary school operates in the area at this point in time, and while Johnson insists a high school is in the works, many children are still being bussed miles from home to attend school.

    In response, a hand full of non-profits have sprung up in the last few years to help the neighborhood regain its original status, including the Common Ground Collective, a group of volunteers who were the first to begin gutting houses. However, the most notable program is the Make It Right Foundation.

    Make It Right started in late 2007 after actor Brad Pitt toured the Lower Ninth Ward’s extensive damage and saw how little progress had been made in rebuilding the area. The foundation was established to build 150 affordable, green and sustainable homes. To date, 21 architectural firms have donated designs and Make It Right has raised millions to get the building process started.

    While Make It Right may have an advantage in bypassing the normal routes of governmental bureaucracy, they find themselves facing the same problems. While they originally intended to have the 150 homes built by this month, they only plan to have 80 finished by next spring.

    “We only build homes for people who lived in the neighborhood prior to the storm,” said Taylor Royle, communications director at Make It Right. “We wanted to build these homes as fast as possible and that was our goal, but one thing we found was that families displaced had gone all over the country from as close as Baton Rouge and Houston to as far as Alaska and Toronto. Finding all of these people and asking them if they wanted to come back to the neighborhood took more time than we expected.

    “Secondly, people who were living check to check before the storm who lost their jobs and livelihoods were pushed into debt. We have a whole staff of social workers on hand who help people get their credit in order, help them get more hours at work, and recover titles to assist them in getting qualified for a loan to buy the house. It’s not as easy as just putting up a house and expecting people to come home. It actually takes a long time. Getting people qualified for loans can take up to a year and a half.”

    To help get the economically-devastated residents back into their homes, Make It Right finds non-predatory loans that are no more than one-third of monthly income. Royle stated that the average returning family can only afford $75,000 while their average house built costs $150,000. To fill in the gap, as long as the families continue to make payments toward their loans, the foundation will use their donations to pay off the rest of the building money. These make incredibly nice homes with hurricane-strength features and stilts to prevent flooding much more affordable for returning families.

    While the Lower Ninth Ward still remains largely destroyed, it is Royle’s and Johnson’s hope that these small initiatives will
