To those who are questioning AJ’s capability as a director….. PLEASE don’t lump her up with other run-of-the-mill directors such as Madonna, Jennifer Aniston etc. They are not in her league.
.
Before AJ tried her hand as a director, courtesy of her first directorial job the documentary “A Place In Time”, she let herself be educated first. She attended short courses in Directing & Screenwriting at NYU plus she’s familiar with the theme of the film. The distribution of the documentary was in the hands of the National Education Association which represented 3.2 million educators, partnered with AJ and created a curriculum that promotes diversity. It generated good reviews.
.
Her second directorial film, “In The Land of Blood & Honey” for which she also wrote, a story set against the background of the Bosnian War, opened in a limited theatrical release, also gained great reviews as well as awards/ recognition such as:

-NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Foreign Motion Picture
-Producers Guild of America Stanley Kramer Award
-Sarajevo Film Festival Honorary Award
-Nominated – Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film
.
Most importantly, ITLOBAH served as catalyst in William Hague & AJ working together in the new Government initiative to prevent sexual violence in conflict.
.
Now, she is on her third directorial film which she also co-produced, “Unbroken”, this time an epic war drama about resilience from adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand’s New York Times best-selling novel. It is scripted by Joel and Ethan Coen & distributed by Univeral Pictures.
.
If she is not good, I don’t think she would be entrusted to do these films. They surely have seen the kind of work she has done as a director. Definitely she is not an ordinary film director. So far, her directorial films are those with sense & well-made and something
that produced good results in our society.

10 Oscar Lessons From the First Blitz of Critics’ Awards
————————————————————————–
Awards | By Steve Pond on December 8, 2013
.
Here’s what we now know about “12 Years a Slave,” “Gravity,” “Her” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” after an initial week of awards
Some of the critics have spoken, and it’s tempting to act as if they’ve told us important things about this year’s Oscar race. Tempting, but not necessarily true – particularly in a year like this one, with an abundance of strong contenders, almost all of which had enough success in the first week of critics’ kudos to emerge feeling good. With the caveat that you should never try to read too much into the tea leaves left by the New York Film Critics Circle, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and their ilk, here are 10 lessons to be drawn from the last seven days of awards-giving:
.
1. This is not a year for critic-awards sweeps.
Over the last few years, we’ve seen times when one film has unequivocally dominated the critics’ voting. “The Hurt Locker” did so in 2009, and the sheer number of awards it won eventually helped establish it as the alternative to “Avatar,” the little movie that could take down the big movie. The next year, David Fincher’s “The Social Network” had an even more impressive, and nearly unanimous, run through the critics’ awards – and while that may have helped establish it as the alternative to “The King’s Speech,” it wasn’t enough to persuade Academy and guild voters to forsake that crowd-pleaser for something chillier, more artful and more appealing to critics.This year, the first week of awards found “American Hustle” winning in New York, “Gravity” and “Her” tying in Los Angeles, and “12 Years a Slave” picking up three awards. (You could throw in the National Board of Review win for “Her,” but that’s not a critics’ group, though it is often lumped with them.) There’s simply too much good stuff out there for any film to sweep through awards the way “The Hurt Locker,” “The Social Network” and to a lesser degree “The Artist” did.
.
2. But “12 Years a Slave” remains the leader.
All that talk that the race was over when “12 Years” debuted at Telluride and Toronto was clearly premature. Steve McQueen’s dark, brutal film’s appeal to the Academy and the guilds remains to be seen. But the film has done what it was expected to do, which is to win most of the critics’ awards so far. It was bypassed by the main groups in New York and L.A., but it won in Boston and among the New York online critics – and so far in the best picture, best director, best actor and best supporting actress categories, it has won more awards than any other film.
.
3. And “Gravity” has done what it needs to do.
Alfonso Cuaron’s game-changing spectacle doesn’t need to win a lot of critics’ awards – it just needs to remain in the conversation, to be seen as a serious artistic statement rather than just a great popcorn movie. And it did that with best-director wins from L.A. and New York online, with a shared best-picture prize in L.A. and with three cinematography awards for Emmanuel Lubezki. When you add that much critical respect to more than $630 million in worldwide grosses, “Gravity” is still nestled in the right awards orbit.
.
4. The Best Actor race is narrowing.
It is one of the most competitive Oscar categories most years, but Best Actor is positively brutal this year. More than a dozen high-profile actors could easily lay claim to deserving a spot among the nominees, and you could make up a formidable slate of nominees from among the men who are scrambling to secure what might be the last open spot: Tom Hanks in “Captain Phillips,” Oscar Isaac in “Inside Llewyn Davis,” Michael B. Jordan in “Fruitvale Station,” Forest Whitaker in “The Butler,” Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” Christian Bale in “American Hustle,” Joaquin Phoenix in “Her,” Idris Elba in “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” … But it is quite possible that all but one of those actors will be left out when nominations are announced, because a consensus seems to be tightening around Chiwetel Ejiofor in “12 Years a Slave” (winner of three critics’ awards), Robert Redford in “All Is Lost” and Bruce Dern in “Nebraska” (winners of one each) and Matthew McConaughey in “Dallas Buyers Club.” There’s not much room left at the inn once you make room for those guys.
.
5. Cate Blanchett is undeniable.
On the Best Actress side, Blanchett was the presumed frontrunner way back in July, when Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine” came out and critics began raving about her turn as the self-destructive, delusional alcoholic sent on a downward spiral by the arrest of her Bernie Madoff-style husband. And now, five months later, Blanchett is still the presumed frontrunner, easily holding off challengers like Sandra Bullock (“Gravity”) and Meryl Streep (“August: Osage County”). Her performance is so inescapable that even the L.A. Film Critics Association, which lives to single out the darkest of dark horses in this category – between 2009 and 2011, their picks were Yoon Jeong-hee, Kim Hye-ja and Yolande Moreau – could only offer token resistance to Blanchett’s victory parade. LAFCA made her share the award with Adele Exarchopoulos from “Blue Is the Warmest Color.”
.
6. So is Jared Leto.
The initial attention paid to “Dallas Buyers Club” was for Matthew McConaughey’s 40-pound weight loss in the lead role – but it’s his co-star, who lost just as much weight and had less to lose to begin with, who has been reliably winning awards so far. Aside from one loss to the late James Gandolfini and a tie with James Franco (those LAFCA contrarians strike again!), Leto has dominated in the way that Michael Fassbender (“12 Years a Slave”) was once expected to dominate. Now, he just has to withstand a late charge from Jonah Hill as a rampaging, seriously unhinged stockbroker in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
.
7. “Her” is sneaking in there.
Lots of people this awards season aren’t entirely comfortable campaigning – you could put Fassbender, Christian Bale, Joaquin Phoenix and Woody Allen in that category. But few films have had quieter launches than Spike Jonze’s “Her,” an utterly beguiling and singular near-future love story between a man and his operating system. With Jonze laying back after a New York Film Festival premiere, Phoenix off the circuit entirely, Scarlett Johansson filming another movie in Paris and Amy Adams more visible on behalf of “American Hustle,” “Her” has done little but screen – but it has also won over enough people to nab the National Board of Review’s best-picture award, share the LAFCA’s top prize with “Gravity” and get on the board in a number of other categories. Since the Oscar nominating system rewards movies that can inspire passion rather than consensus, “Her” may have quietly gotten to a very nice position in the race. (But now it might be time to make a little noise?)
.
8. It’s too early to tell on “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
While initial reports suggested that Martin Scorsese’s three-hour bacchanalia about excess in the financial industry might enter the race and become an instant juggernaut, it hasn’t happened that way. A week after guild screenings began, it made the NBR’s Top 10 list but hasn’t won any critics’ awards.But that’s not a danger sign, because “Wolf” simply wasn’t ready in time to be seen by some critics’ groups, or to be processed by the ones who did see it. The New York Film Critics voted the morning after seeing the film, and weren’t inclined to rush to judgment; the Boston Society of Film Critics had one morning screening that a hefty percentage of members couldn’t attend, but it still finished a close second to “12 Years a Slave” in best-picture voting. Doomsayers might be tempted to downplay “Wolf” on Wednesday if it doesn’t show up in the Screen Actors Guild nominations, but Paramount didn’t send out screeners to the SAG nominating committee, and were barely able to screen the film for voters.Like “Django Unchained,” which entered the race late last year and surprised some by the strength it showed at the Oscars, “Wolf” still has time to make its mark.
.
9. We don’t have the right kind of information to assess “Saving Mr. Banks” or “August: Osage County.”
Some movies simply aren’t critics’ movies. “The King’s Speech,” for instance, barely won any critics’ awards – but when the guilds started voting, it won everything. So the fact that John Lee Hancock’s “Saving Mr. Banks” and John Wells’ “August: Osage County” haven’t shown up on any lists so far really doesn’t mean a thing. They can still end up with strongconstituencies among awards voters – but if so, those constituencies will more likely be among guild and Academy members than critics.Of course, any awards movie worth its salt will tell you which of those constituencies is more valuable come Oscar time.
.
10. Finally, none of this means much until the guilds start voting.
It’s always tempting to see the first week of critics’ awards as a bellwether of what’s to come in awards season, to draw lessons from each new round of kudos. But as the saga of “The Social Network” showed three years ago – and as we suggested in item No. 9 – you can’t really tell what’s going to happen until the guilds chime in.First up, on Wednesday, is the Screen Actors Guild. SAG has its own idiosyncracies: A random sampling of about two percent of the guild is responsible for nominations, and late-arriving films that might otherwise be real contenders can lose out. But the SAG nominations will still tell you far more about which way the wind blows than Thursday’s Golden Globe noms, and the picture will become even clearer in early January when the Producers, Directors and Writers Guilds sound off.
Until then, though, critics are all we’ve got. So let the tea leaves fall where they may.

So filming on both ho and duh’s movies will be wrapping up eventually. The nice respite that he was able to have far, far away from her with only child hand-offs and a couple visits for Pax’s birthday and $$$$$ shots is going to end. He has been on cloud nine….the obvious rage/disgust he was exuding during her award presentation couldn’t have been more obvious if he’d have worn a sign saying “I DON’T WANT TO BE WITH THIS BIITCH!!”

Once she get through with her fake directing, there is NOTHING in the works and she will once again be unemployed. How is stuPITT going to keep his distance? Will they then HAVE to announce a split cause let me tell ya loonies…if they are not together after these movies wrap, even YOU will have to be wondering WHAT THE HELL?!!!! Stay tuned. Your pitiful asses won’t own up to the fact that they CHOSE to be apart not for a couple weeks but at present SEVERAL MONTSH and still counting. You blathered about him and Jen not being together for 6 weeks prior to their split….now lets hear you talk about this. I know you won’t except to DERAIL this thread. :P

We have to do what we ALWAYS DO: speculate- and then watch events UNFOLD.

There are some interesting astrological aspects coming up, like a VENUS retrograde…which is in CAPRICORN- and so BRAD is going to feel the effects of this transit VERY STRONGLY. According to Darkstar Astrology, “old loves” figure strongly, since a retrograde tends to “resurrect the past”- thus a VENUS retrograde will focus on “past relationships”! The retrograde starts Dec. 21 with Venus at 28 degrees Cap- thus it is that it starts out in OPPOSITION to her own natal Venus in Cancer. So, it is HARDLY SURPRISING that there are rumours of INFIDELITY currently circulating about BRAD…this retrograde is going to HIT BRAD HARD; he has FIVE planets in Capricorn so ‘past relationships” will hit him on numerous levels of his being! Plus, cap rules his SECOND House- the house of POSSESSIONS. So there will likely be some issues with “bankruptcy” or ownership having to do with “past relationships”.

Jolie’s Seventh House of “relationship” is ruled by Cap, so I expect she will have her OWN Seventh House issues…but NOTHING like Brad will! So watch closely; it ought to be an INTERRRESSSTING brangelina X-mas!

Wow,Demi’s d o g s gone and Sandra’s d o g s come with Shamu a Sheman of tamshite The Half Man huh ?

brangelina over @ 12/09/2013 at 6:12 am

@NAN:

Jhor’s dogs have to blocked all the love’s Photos from OZ huh ?
Isn’t Jen’s Gigolo Kaput and Collapse ?

SANTA MADONNA¡¡another photo shoot… waiting the announcement of the split

Jared is spoiling us on pics. Now we need some Brad to level it all out. Angie looks great. So animated and so happy on the set. I understand why she likes it so much.

Well I guess the trolls are running out of names. Different names same stupid post.

have a wonderful day FANS..

@Phool, good morning my Sister. Ho are you my friend. So good to see you here for a little time today. Phool, I missed you yesterday, hope all is well. I see the fools are now reading Brad’s astrology charts. Phool, when is this nonsense going to stop with these cray cray? Jesus, Mary and Joseph when are the trolls going to leave Brad and his family alone. January 7th will be nine (9) years Brad walked away from his X and he never looked back.I guess we have to hold a Seance to get rid of unstable people fixating an Brad and his family.

Phool, I saw over at the DM that the big Christmas party went down last night. Oh I wished a was a fly on the wall to listen to all the hypocrisy taking place. Goop, C. H and CC were in attendance among the others. Wonder how many are taking the knife out of their back this morning. Can’t wait for Huvane to bring out the list of attendees this morning. You know he has it ready to be released to the press in 3, 2, 1.

The JP’s happiness as a family is making the trolls crazy. It pains them no end to see that AJBP is looking in love & good as ever compared to Ticky & Tacky. It hurts them so much that after all these years, AJBP love never wanes BUT more in love in fact. They are hoping that AJBP love story will be in kaput and will now resume the rebound relationship of you know who with Brad. Only in their wildest dreams. Brad will never, never go back to the miserable life he had before. He will never live an empty life ever again.
.
Brad’s life with AJ is heaven. His smiles is just different when he’s with his family. He glows. So, why would her chose to be with hell when he has heaven with him already.

correction:
.
Instead of HER, should be HE….

“……So, why would HE chose to be with hell when he has heaven with him already.”

@busted, @NAN, good morning my friends. Angle is looking so beautiful. I love that simple sweater she’s wearing. I hope in another ten days we will see some photos of Brad celebrating with his family. We have been so lucky to get so many beautiful pictures of Angie and the kids. Sometimes feasts and sometimes famine with the pictures. However, we are loving them. Maybe after the holidays we will have to wait months to see the kids again. Everyone be careful out there, drive safely, and have a blessed day.

Good morning Phool and Rose.
How are ladies ? I hope you are fine.
@Phool &@Rose Im very sorry that I didn’t have time to answered you,Im so busy with my work , family and travel,just been in Sweden,Germany and Norway.I’ve plan to go to visit USA in summer with my family.
I’ll go to Thailand again this spring,that’s why I’ve to work hard to save money for my holiday.
Sometime I’d posts here ,but got modalation,I didn’t used bad words like tamshiteThe Half Man d o g s.
Hi to all JP fans around the World,Have a happy Monday everyone.

@neer: Hi ne’er, good day. The thing I never understand is why are the trolls so he’ll bent on seeing a family break up. Why? Is there something in it for them if Brad leaves his family? Are they going to win a pride? I guess the only joy for them would be to say, I told you it would never last. However, Brad and Angie have been together for almost nine (9) years. Longer than he was with Ticky, 6.5 years and goop about 3 years. The bottom line is there are a lot of very sick and spiteful people out there. Btw, when is Ticky and tacky getting married, that’s the question the Jenhens should be asking.

wiwiwiwiw

the same loon with different names… star has the pics of the brunette

omg¡¡

Haters sre predictable and boring. JJ can have them. Tired of the trolls stupid blind hate. They are useless human beings when it comes to the JPFamily. You would think they would be busy worrying about Ticky and Squiggy. Angie and Brad are working and loving their family and each other. Time for the trolls to get a life and move on. Haven’t they learned anything from the last 9 years.

Most often than not, those who want to see other people’s family break up are those who are leading miserable lives themselves. They are unhappy, thus they want to see AJBP to be unhappy too. It makes them upset or even depressed to know that the JP is indeed a very loving family. Maybe these people who are miserable come from dysfunctional families or maybe they have unhappy childhood. Seeing other people’s joyful experiences is giving them back sad memories of their early years of growing up. Perhaps, they wish they were as happy as the JPs now. So, in a way, they are envious of the JPs.

Good morning Rose, How are you my dear friend?
Sorry that last week I could not answered you,because of the big storm hit Denmark,I’ve to hurried to go to work ( nearly to sleep at my work)
@Rose Im not going to any school,just take some courses from work,like demented,communication , unig course…ect.
Im working late afternoon. They called us B people (not a morning bird)
When I’ve time at home I always be here and read all of JP fans posts,all of JP fans are smart & clever and we can hit Jhor d o g s.
Today Jhor is a DeadEnd with her Career – Love by her Half Man fans.
Have a great Monday my dear Rose,hope you can understand me,english is my secound language,but I never scare to beat or fight with The Half Man d o g s of Jhor.
