    I know she doesn’t do this for any kind of recognition, but she does do this out of goodness from the bottom of her heart. It’s about time she received recognition. What would have been better is if both she and Brad were honored at the same time.

    Angelina Jolie, Angela Lansbury, Steve Martin and Piero Tosi to Receive the Academy’s Governors Awards

    BEVERLY HILLS, CA – The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present Honorary Awards to Angela Lansbury, Steve Martin and Piero Tosi, and the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award to Angelina Jolie. All four awards will be presented at the Academy’s 5th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday, November 16, at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center®.

    “The Governors Awards pay tribute to individuals who’ve made indelible contributions in their respective fields,” said Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “We couldn’t be more excited for this year’s honorees and look forward to bringing their peers and colleagues together to celebrate their extraordinary achievements.”

    Lansbury has received three Academy Award® nominations for her supporting performances on film – the first in her 1944 feature debut in “Gaslight,” followed by “The Picture of Dorian Gray” (1945) and “The Manchurian Candidate” (1962). Her numerous other credits include “The Long, Hot Summer,” “Blue Hawaii,” “The World of Henry Orient,” “Bedknobs and Broomsticks,” “Death on the Nile” and “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” as well as voice work for the first animated feature to receive a Best Picture nomination, “Beauty and the Beast.”

    Martin, who got his start in television, is a versatile actor, writer, comedian and musician who began to display the breadth of his big-screen talent as the screenwriter and star of the 1977 Oscar®-nominated short film “The Absent-Minded Waiter.” He wrote and starred in “The Jerk,” “Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid,” “Three Amigos,” “Roxanne,” “L.A. Story,” “The Pink Panther” series and “Shopgirl,” which he adapted from his critically acclaimed book of the same name. His other acting credits include “All of Me,” “Parenthood,” “Father of the Bride” and “It’s Complicated.” He also is a three-time host of the Oscars®, most recently in 2010 with Alec Baldwin.

    Tosi rose to prominence through his collaborations with Italian director Luchino Visconti on such films as “White Nights” and “Rocco and His Brothers,” and continued to work with him on several other features, including the Costume Design nominees “The Leopard,” “Death in Venice” and “Ludwig.” Tosi received two more nominations for his designs for “La Cage aux Folles” and “La Traviata.” His other notable credits include “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow,” a Foreign Language Film winner, and “Marriage Italian Style,” a Foreign Language Film nominee, both directed by Vittorio De Sica.

    Jolie, who won an Oscar for her supporting performance in “Girl, Interrupted,” has been an impassioned advocate for humanitarian causes, traveling widely to promote organizations and social justice efforts such as the Prevent Sexual Violence Initiative. Staking out a career at the nexus of entertainment and philanthropy, Jolie has worked for a number of global advocacy groups including the Council on Foreign Relations and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), for which she was appointed Special Envoy of High Commissioner António Guterres in 2012 after twelve years of service. Her dedication to these causes has also shaped her work in films that tackle global humanitarian issues including “A Mighty Heart” and her feature film directorial debut “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”

    The Honorary Award, an Oscar statuette, is given “to honor extraordinary distinction in lifetime achievement, exceptional contributions to the state of motion picture arts and sciences, or for outstanding service to the Academy.”

    The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, also an Oscar statuette, is given “to an individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry.”

  • briseis

    Oh wow, at such a young age Angie has accomplished so much! So proud of her. She knows where her priorities are. And am so glad that the Academy has finally recognized her. Not necessary for Angie, since she is doing what she does because she wants to, not for any recognition. But it is still so nice that she gets accolades …

  • Bea

    Congratulations Angelina! The youngest and most deserving of the award. What a beautiful day indeed.

    Congratulations Angelina.

    You’ve always been respected and admired for all that you do.

    Nice to see her getting more accolades. Even though it’s not why she does it.

    She walks the walk. Just ask those around the world that she’s helped.

    A Place in Time: Angelina Jolie’s New Documentary

    A Place in Time is an experimental documentary that seeks to capture both the diversity of life around the globe and the commonality of the human spirit by filming in many places around the world at the same moment.

    Having traveled the world for years to promote peace, I do believe that we can transcend the barriers of national borders, religions and cultures, and embrace our common dreams, hopes and aspirations. I mean…what is the alternative? What Angelina has sought to do with this film, is to bring our commonalities, hopes and dreams into focus. And often the narrators of the story are children. For this is also a film for children complete with a study guide, and today’s premiere included a large crowd of eager NYC students invited by Angelina.

    Her canvas is the world — it’s people, animals, and geography. Our lens is her compassionate heart. She enlisted her actor friends and others – including my friend Natabara featured in China – to facilitate the stories. Among them, actors Sean Astin (Agentina), Colin Farrell (Italy), Ryan Gosline (Chad), Anne Hathaway (Cambodia) , Djimon Hounsou (Los Angeles, CA), Jude Law (New Orleans, LA), and Hillary Swank (New York, NY).

    Each person flew to a unique location in the world with a hand-held mini-DV camera. The crews filmed what they saw around them, as they prepared for the big moment – when everyone would turn on their cameras for three minutes. On January 11, 2005 at 12 noon Greenwich Mean Time, those cameras rolled in 27 locations – including USA (Wisconsin, NY, Nevada, Louisiana, South Dakota and California), Chad, Niger, Kosovo, Italy, Chad, China, Jordan, Lebanon, Mexico, Iceland, Antarctica and elsewhere.

    Editor Kurt Engfeur did an amazing job tying this spontaneous footage into a coherent story that flowed with a poetic movement that respected and enhanced nature itself. In one scene showing how we travel, we saw kite-boarders on snow, a land-rover crossing the desert, a bullock cart in a mainstreet in India, a sailboat crossing the ocean, and an SUV in Los Angeles. In another scene we jumped around the world to view children combing through trash for things to sell, and adults living in poverty in New Orleans, Chad, Haiti, and Kosovo. And underlying the powerful imagery was an extraordinarily spirited musical score that lifted the film throughout, written and performed by the great Wyclef Jean.

    Why is a film like this needed? Simple. We need to educate children of developed nations who will be the leaders of tomorrow that the global community is also their community. Problems in one part of the global neighborhood are also theirs to solve. And because it will take decades to solve today’s problems, educating the future leaders of tomorrow is key for they will inherit the world. So ‘development education’ tools like this film are important.

    Having worked in support of peace and global understanding through my own efforts as organizer of the Global Peace Run and at the United Nations, I believe Angelina has succeeded brilliantly with this huge undertaking. And there are moments in the film that brought me to tears because I was overwhelmed by the pain and suffering of those less fortunate.

    Angelina Jolie was appointed UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador in August 2001. To raise awareness and support for refugees she has traveled to Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Balkans and the North Caucasus. Jolie has also been a generous contributor to UNHCR’s programs around the world.

    After the film, I had a chance to speak with her. I’ve worked with dozens of celebrities. Many are talking heads who care little for the causes they stand for; it’s a photo op. They do it because it makes good PR sense.

    Angelina Jolie does it because this is her life’s mission. She and Bono have defined a new class of celebrity advocate. And her presence is radiant. You can feel qualities of love, devotion, humility, poise, beauty and compassion. Her voice is thoughtful and intelligent. And she uses the power of her global celebrity -in her life and through this film – to focus our attention and the media’s lens and pen – on key issues: refugee rights, the AIDS epidemic in Africa, poverty in Haiti and Niger, the conflict in Kosovo, the crisis in Darfur, global warming, victims of land mines in Cambodia and rehabilitation programs that provide them with needed prostheses and wheelchairs.
