Angelina Jolie on 'Unbroken' Story: The Strength of the Human Spirit is Extraordinary

Angelina Jolie gives a sweet hug to her Unbroken inspiration Louis Zamperini as they sit down for a pre-taped interview on the Today show, which aired today (February 25).

“I imagine that for the last 10-something years, he has been sitting there having a coffee in the morning and wondering who’s going to make this movie,” the 38-year-old actress and director said about World War II hero Louis. “And I’ve been sitting in my room laying there thinking, ‘What am I supposed to be doing with my life? I wanna do something important. I need some help. I need some guidance. Where is it?’ And it was right outside my window.”

“(The world) can seem hopeless and it can seem very overwhelming,” Angelina added. “But the resilience and the strength of the human spirit is an extraordinary thing.”

    Oh Santa Angelina, she’s such an angel with everyone who are far from her and when she’s in front of a camera. But she can’t forgive her father who had to deliver his Valentine’s pressents for his grand children and her in a parking lot to her body guards…
    Such a golden heart should be able to forgive those who are closer to her.

    Awwww…you can see the love and admiration between Louie and Angie…
    The kiss she planted on his head was so cute…This movie will be amazing…and I’m sure it will bring lots of accolades for our Angie…She’s a force to be reckoned with…her determination and vision to get his story right especially with Louie still alive has made it a huge responsibility on her shoulder…so freaking proud of Angie…December 25 can’t come soon enough….

    Angelina Jolie talks to Tom Brokaw
    ===============================
    .
    Ann Oldenburg, USA TODAY 8:27 a.m. EST February 25, 2014
    And how is Brokaw doing these days?
    Angelina Jolie has a new man in her life.
    .
    He calls her “honey” and she tells him, “I love you.”
    .
    He’s Louis Zamperini, 97, the focus of her new film and the subject of the best selling book, Unbroken.
    Jolie is directing the film adaption of the story of the World War II hero and Olympic distance runner, slated for theaters later this year.
    .
    “Such a huge responsibility to get it right,” she told Tom Brokaw, who presented a story on her and Zamperini on Todayon Tuesday.
    .
    “I wanted to direct something again,” said Jolie. “I wasn’t sure what. It had to be something I would love and care about because it takes much more time away from your family and much more effort than acting.”
    .
    She added, “This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” She went on to explain that she it wasn’t easy to land the job. “I pitched my butt off.”
    .
    And she hopes that the story will send a message. “I think Louis has been very clear about what his message is and certainly the book. I think, for my children, and for everybody, I want to be able to say it can seem dark and it can seem hopeless and it can seem very overwhelming but the resilience and the strength of the human spirit is an extraordinary thing.”
    .
    The movie seems meant to be as the two turned out to be neighbors in the Los Angeles area. Zamperini can see her house from his. “I’ve been sitting in my room, laying there thinking what am I supposed to be doing with my life,” said Jolie. “I want to do something important. I want to connect, but I need some help. I need some guidance. Where is it? And it was right outside my window.”
    Brokaw promised to follow up with her in coming months as the movie production continues at Universal Studios, oday’s parent company.
    ,
    As for Brokaw’s health? When Savannah Guthrie asked how he’s doing in the wake of his cancer news, all he would say is, “I’m OK.”

    How are You my dear I love the genuine love & affection both Louis & Angie have between them, it just shines through he’s a heart breaker that Louis, Brad better keep an eye on him that’s all I say lol Other wise its going to be fisty cuffs at dawn between the guys lol.

    How are you my dear apologies for yesterday I kept on getting in to moderation hence my no reply back to you, maybe JJ is trying to tell me something, l I know I’m still shameless when I see a window open I get in lol. In regards to the refugee children not knowing who Angie is, yet they could differentiate between genuine love & humbleness from Angie and that’s what exudes from Angie, you see what you get, a decent selfless women whose trying her upmost to help those who are in need, regardless of what race, colour, creed they are from, for her they are ONE.
    .
    IN regards to you disagreeing with me on Ticky & Squiggy gate-crashing one of the after Oscar parties, my innocent sister that is SO happening, look his a$$ has already been pulled back from NYC just in time for ‘Show Time’ you know how media hungry Ticky is to stay relevant she aren’t letting this opportunity get away after all she fights dirty her words.
    I ‘m laughing at Robin Thick & Pula Patten splitting as if that’s wasn’t foreseen by everyone, its only the amount of time a wife can pretend to turn a blind eye to her husbands philandering with young girls. I guess with all the new fame Robin forgot his family values, by the end of this year believe me people will go Robin who? Yes the fickle world of music industry if he’s got good music that will carry the bandwagon if not he will be along with the one hit wonder people.

    The love and admiration they have for each other is beautiful. I’m glad Angie has him in her life for her and her family – a true gentleman.

    I hope that he will be able to make the premiere and enjoy all of it. He really is a treasure.

    You’re right…Brad should be worry about Louie…Look at the loving, the kiss and the affection between these two…but seriously joking aside I think it’s such a joy to watch…I think Angie will do Louie proud…

    @Phool.: Remember Louie told Brad he’s going to fight him for Angie, I guess Brad laughed. I forget his reply to the challenge. Phool, I have to run now.@ndn: It’s her engagement ring turned around.

    @#6, I remember seeing Angie’s father sitting at her table when she was honored with her humanitarian Oscar Award in December. … at her table was Brad, MADD, Jon V, her Brother, LZ, one of her security
    guard, and a few others. However, some people is always willing to believe what they read in the weekly rags than what they see with both eyes. If it makes you feel superior, then go for it, knock yourself out.

    Oh the nerve of this shameless vain, arrogant Ho. So Zamperini has done nothing but wait for ten years for someone to tell his story!? Btch please, the book was a hit and has been read by millions of people at this point. The movie, on the other hand, has been in development hell for nearly 50 years. She had to beg for this job and and give up her directorial fee to get it made, and now she’s trying to pass for the mastermind who put it all together? Pffff..

    Yes Ho, you are in need of guidance for sure. It’s called rehab. Drug abuse, anorexia, mental breakdowns, and neglecting your children, what are you waiting for?

  26. 26
    Ⱦamsin Says:

    The mental patient is not content with exploiting refugees and her own children, so now she’s preying upon the memories of an elderly man who probably forgets about her the minute she leaves him after they finish the photo shoot. Is there anything sacred to this vile woman? Disgusting!

    Natalie Portman started directing a movie in Israel early this month and it’s only caught the media’s attention once thus far. There hasn’t been any pap shots of her making big, dramatic gestures on the movie set, or pimping her kid outside of it. No one has written any articles praising her just for “showing up” to work, as if it was something to be surprised about. There hasn’t been any attempts on her part to steal the attention from the cast and crew or the original source, and instead chose to let the book author speak about the project.

    What a class act Natalie Portman is. The attention-starved tattooed demoness has a lot to learn from her.

    I don’t always agree with Tom Brokaw, but I’m sorry to hear about his cancer.
    .
    How cute are Angela and Louis Zamperini? I loved how they showed her walking up to his house and letting herself in…the “neighborhood”. lol I wish continued good health on Louis so he can escort his girl, Angelina, on the red carpet of ‘Unbroken’. Angie looks for stories to show people that they have strengths inside and to use that strength to empower themselves, especially if they were a little wild in their youth, like Louis. Not everyone, these days, will help kids or young people to channel that passion in the right direction.
    Isn’t it funny that the “wild”children are also the most emphatic and compassionate? I know my wild girl is….give me the wild child that tests boundaries in youth, thinks for themselves, outside the box, progresses in life and maturity…not regresses or stays emotionally stunted.

    Angelina and Louis walk the walk…not talk, talk, talk and regress further.

    AWHODAT! Says:

    Everyone wonders how Angie manages to be so giving of her time and energy in service to others. Its just so incredible how tireless she is. But for those of us who are her fans and who have read about her personal growth from reputable sources and seen her actions and utterances with our eyes and ears, it is no surprise at all.
    .
    Everything in nature, including human beings, have the option and opportunity to either grow, stagnate or die. You choose.
    .
    We know what Angie and Brad have chosen. And we know what her detractors have chosen. As her fans, we know which choice we applaud. And which choice for which we have nothing but contempt and ridicule.
    .
    And we also know that those who choose to stagnate or choose spiritual and emotional death, come here from their deep dark dense place of hopelessness, envy, jealousy and despair.
    .
    Thats what “lies beneath” these poor benighted fvckers who come here for some of our light. Hey, we’re not mad at ya, dead-troll-walking. While you breathe, theres hope. Its only been 10 years. Stick around. LMFAO

    Ⱦamsin Says:

    Who is this “everyone” you’re speaking of Lissa? You mean you and your two dozen aliases? LOL.

    It’s good you noticed how “nobody” cares about Natalie P though, that’s exactly what she meant to do. She’s stepped out of the public life and has instead chosen to disappear into her work. She doesn’t have first cousins who date gossip bloggers in exchange for positive PR, nor does she have to tip any paps to take photos of her as she goes to work on her movie. She cares about the art of filmmaking and is not using people’s struggles and hardships to make herself look good.

    We know the mental patient is a diagnosed psychopath, which explains why she doesn’t have any friends, so now she’s flaunting a business relationship with Zamperini and trying to pass it off as a friendship… how pathetic is that? Besides you loons, only paid lackeys like the jewelery man are willing to say anything positive about her. LOL.

    kellyf Says:

    I normally find her intolerably pretentious (no I am not camp Aniston, you can dislike one without it having anything to do with the other), but I found this to be one of the more likeable and personable interviews she’s done. I found her really candid and natural and it’s made me really look forward to this film.

    Yes you can hang out with me anytime my sis, the more the merrier. That teapot on Squiggy’s head does him no favours whatsoever only magnifies what a ‘small head he has,’ along with small body parts i.e. those legs wrapped in a 12 year old jeans aren’t doing anyone any favours especially a guy who’s in his Forties. Ndn what I want to say is what’s the point of going to a gym when you can’t build up any muscle tone especially legs & arms. I bet he’s a poser there to, too much grooming in front of the mirrors and less excersing, but considering he’s with another body image parasite Tick so it is any wonder.
    .
    I just love the love the love & affection that Angie & Louis have, its like watching a granddaughter and grandfather together sharing their love, I bet the kids love him too. Oh god I want to be their neighbour too so I can spy on them both, *did I say that out a load* I meant so that I can be a good neighbour to them both and protect them from any unwanted attention lol.
    Ndn I’m looking forward to the follow up interview with Tom Brokaw & Angie, so glad Brokaw did the interview.

    You mofos only developed hatred for Angelina Jolie when you realized that after Brad kicked the ol’ albatross he had around his neck to the curb, the very next time you saw him, he was irrevocably in love with Angelina Jolie and together they were building a FAMILY.
    .
    You fvckers all thought it wouldnt last; that Angie would “chew him up and spit him out” and that he would “come to his senses” and return to that lazy good-for-nothing coattail rider. Hey, even she thought so too.
    .
    And for N.I.N.E. long years that belief sustained you in your cesspool of self-hatred. And so y’all used to spare Brad your vitriol and save it all up for Angie. Even that nasty mother-hating, fvck-her-way-through-HW-looking-for-relevance b!tch praised Brad and saved her sly, passive-aggressive dirty-fighting tactics for Angie………thats why she said she would: “love Brad for the rest of her miserable life.” LMAO

    How are you my dear, who’d have thought seeing Angie being gushed over by Louis & Tom will have a Troll meltdown, so funny to see a the murderous Costa Rican Troll in so much pain along with its monikers , or maybe the melt down is because Squiggy is back in the arms of his true love the money bags Ticky and they haven’t split yet, weren’t the trolls holding out for Brad to go back to the dead end LOL. To share her Sundays eating eggs and beagles lol. Costa Rican is so out od touch and out of date that its now talking about Natalie Portman’s directing that’s soo yesterdays news and yes NP had all the pap’s there and at the time I posted the link here saying I wonder where the troll are now as they had ample time to biitch about Angie’s directing but nada about NP, they were awfully quite then cat got their tongue and two months later now the Troll has started Lol.

    What Angelina Jolie Could Teach World Leaders About Syria

    It’s not often that Syria’s humanitarian crisis makes headline news in Perez Hilton, E! News, Just Jared or Hollywood.com — but Angeline Jolie’s recent trip to Lebanon has everyone talking. Of course, few people have the same pull as the internationally-acclaimed actress/UN ambassador, but have we heard of any other “big names” visits to Syrian refugees?

    Everyday, children are dying without food or shelter, but little has been done.
    As one documentary photographer said after visiting Syrian refugee children in Lebanon, “no one cares.” A visit from top-level officials from the Obama administration could change that. For a country that considered bombing Syria, a visit to help its people shouldn’t be a tall order.
    World leaders have a unique opportunity to leverage their names for international action.
    U.S. leaders have visited Syrian refugees, but their trips barely made headlines outside of official government blogs. In January 2013, U.S. Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford, Assistant Secretary of State for Population, Refugees, and Migration Anne C. Richard, and USAID’s Nancy Lindborg recently visited a refugee camp for Syrians in Turkey. This year, Richard, along with Special Adviser for Global Youth Issues Zeenat Rahman from the Department of State, visited refugees in Jordan. While their visits are important, you’d be hard pressed to see breaking news coverage on them. Meanwhile, thousands of children die everyday in a situation in desperate need of help.

    Big names bring big coverage. That’s the reality of media. And Angelina Jolie knows this. So does does Malala Yousafzai. In a recent interview, the young women and education right’s pioneer called on President Obama to visit Syrian refugees.
    “I would request that the president go to the Jordinian-Syrian border, or go to the border of Lebanon and Syria, and see how these people are suffering,” Yousafzai said in an interview with Wolf Blitzer. “When he will look at it, he will feel it. And then he will understand what it happening here.”

    Jolie’s visit was heavily guarded. She was surrounded by tight security on her surprise visit. While a visit by Obama himself may be out of the question for security reasons, another top-level visit by the Obama administration would add to the media coverage Jolie has given Syrian refugees.
    It’s not out of the question for the secretary of atate to make surprise trips to high-conflict areas. Hilary Clinton, for example, made such a trip to Yemen, Libya and Pakistan in 2011. Would John Kerry visit Jordan, Syria or Lebanon?
    A “celebrity” visit from the Obama administration could bring coverage to the over 2.5 million displaced refugees and aid the politically volatile state of Syria. A longtime fan of the actress, it seems strange to say this: Angeline Jolie, world leaders should follow in your footsteps.

    Angelina Jolie Speaks to Tom Brokaw about Universal’s ‘Unbroken’ (VIDEO)
    =========================================================
    .
    February 25, 2014 | 06:32AM PT

    .
    Tom Brokaw’s interview with Angelina Jolie and World War II hero Louis Zamperini, the subject of Jolie’s film “Unbroken,” aired this morning on NBC’s “Today.” The pic, which Universal Pictures releases on Christmas Day, is her first studio pic as a director.
    .
    Brokaw put it to her that it was more than just filmmaking; for her it was personal. “You’ve got the legacy of this amazing man in your hands,” he said. Jolie agreed. “Such a huge responsibility to get it right,” she said. “I love him so much and he’s helped me so much in my life.”
    Jolie explained how she came to adapt Laura Hillenbrand’s best-seller. “I wanted to direct something again, but I wasn’t sure what. It had to be something I would love and care about. It takes much more time away from your family and much more effort than acting,” she said.
    Jolie also spoke about her difficulties in getting the project greenlit: “This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” she said. “I had all the hours of phone calls and things, and then I made all these boards. I took my glue and tape, and pictures off the internet, and I put all my boards in a garbage bag and carried them myself to Universal, and put them out… and I pitched my butt off.”

It’s gonna be a LONG year for the trolls so they may want to pace themselves a little bit. Try not to come unglued at every little bit of news.

    A Hollywood honor: Lebanon gets props from Angelina Jolie for Syrian refugee generosity
    ===================================================================
    .
    Published February 25th, 2014 – 09:55 GMT
    .

    U.N. Special Envoy and Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie Monday concluded her official visit to Lebanon to draw attention to the Syrian refugee crisis by holding talks with Prime Minister Tammam Salam and President Michel Sleiman.
    .
    Jolie met with Salam at the Grand Serail and later talked with Sleiman to discuss the impacts of the refugee influx on Lebanon, after having spent the previous day with refugees in the Bekaa Valley.
    .
    “The generosity and solidarity shown by Lebanon and Lebanese to its neighbor serves as an example to the world for which we should all be grateful. We all need to help them bear this burden,” Jolie said after meeting Salam.
    .
    Jolie, 38, was on a three-day visit to Lebanon to highlight the plight of Syrian children and to thank the Lebanese people for assisting refugees as the conflict enters its fourth year, a statement from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said.
    .
    The actress said she welcomed the adoption of U.N. Security Council 2139 on humanitarian assistance to Syria, which she described as “a long overdue step in the right direction for the hundreds of thousands of innocent Syrian men, women and children trapped in hard to reach areas across Syria.”
    .
    Jolie, who was previously a U.N. goodwill ambassador, emphasized the need for the resolution to be more than just a paper declaration.
    .
    “It must be implemented – and that will take political will and courage. The unity that the council has shown must not be a one-off, but the start of a new phase in ending the conflict,” she said.
    .
    Prior to her meetings with Salam and Sleiman, Jolie met with orphaned Syrian children living in the Bekaa Valley.
    .
    “Meeting these children was a heart-rending experience. They have lost their families and their childhood has been hijacked by war. They are so young, yet they are bearing the burdens of their reality as if they are adults,” Jolie said.
    .
    There are currently around 3,500 unaccompanied children, separated from their families, known to be living in Lebanon.
    .
    The star of films such as “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” stressed throughout her visit the vital contribution being made by Lebanon. With the number of registered refugees nearing the 1 million mark, Lebanon has the highest per capita concentration of refugees of any country, according to UNHCR. It is also hosting more Syrian refugees than any other country.
    .
    Over 930,000 Syrians have registered with the U.N. for refugee status, swelling the country’s population by one-fifth. But government estimates place the total number of displaced Syrians in the country at well over 1.5 million.
    Jolie’s visit to Lebanon is her third in two years. Her last visit was in September 2012.
    .
    “The purpose of the visit was to shed light on the plight of Syrian refugees,” UNHCR spokeswoman Dana Sleiman said. “We are hoping that [the visit] will boost interest especially toward Lebanon, since Lebanon has done so much to meet the needs of Syrian refugees.”

    After a montage of film stills and behind-the-scenes photos from his various movies and TV shows (“The Ben Stiller Show,” “Bridesmaids,” “Superbad” and “Girls” among them), Apatow noted that he had been wearing a Lacoste shirt “in every single shot.” “If that doesn’t get me a free box of [expletive] I don’t know what does,” he joked.
    Amy Adams was the final honoree, receiving a crystal award in the shape of a crocodile (the iconic Lacoste logo), which was presented to her by “American Hustle” costar Jeremy Renner.
    “My daughter’s obsessed with alligators right now,” Adams said, “so I’m going to put this in her room while she’s asleep and she’s going to freak out.”
    Adams went on to share a light-hearted laundry list of things she’d learned from costume designers over the years, from “the actual start date of a movie” to “always wear undergarments to a fitting,” ending with profuse thanks to costume designers, costume house Western Costume “and ['American Hustle' key costumer] Honah Lee [Milne], who helped me keep my dignity when, at the end of the day,” Adams said, “there wasn’t a shred of it left.”

    Who’d Like To watch Angelina Jolie Flirt Awkwardly With A 97-Year-Old?
    ====================================================

    Angelina Jolie has decided to promote Unbroken by doing an awkwardly weird interview – which aired on Today this morning- where she openly flirts with Louis Zamperini, who’s the subject of the film she’s just finished directing.

    The 38-year-old mother-of-six tells him “I love you” while the World War II hero and Olympic runner, 97, calls her “honey” as she snuggles up to him and holds his hand at his house.

    Poor Angie – she just can’t help but mewl and resort to the only play she has in her book which is flirting and using her sexuality, even though for me it totally detracts from the seriousness and weight of Zamperini’s story.

    Maybe it’s just because I’m British, but I was brought up to treat my elders with a polite awed respect, rather than do my best to act sexy around them.

    As well as playing up to being Louis’ “girlfriend”, Angie draws attention to the fact that they’re LA neighbours and, conveniently forgetting that she’s not supposed to let slip that she and Brad Pitt’s five nannies look after the kids, she gave us a glimpse of life Chez Brange:

    “I’ve been sitting in my room, laying there thinking what am I supposed to be doing with my life,” said Jolie. “I want to do something important. I want to connect, but I need some help. I need some guidance. Where is it? And it was right outside my window.”

    She wants to be taken seriously as a director but you’d never see any of the big male directors in Hollywood holding hands with the subject of their movie and giving it the wide-eyed sex kitten routine in an interview with Today because they’d be laughed out of Los Angeles.

    Even though the interview wasn’t filmed this week, it was purposely saved to run in Oscar week (as there’s more Academy voters watching the news this week and she wants to capture their hearts way ahead of the competition for next year).

    Rather handily, Today’s owned by Universal and that’s the studio who are behind Unbroken.

    And, Jolie’s people also managed to get Today’s anchors to squeeze in the fact that she’s currently in the Lebanon – neatly getting around the fact that those pesky UNHCR security people wouldn’t let her give interviews whilst there.

    ‘Nice one, Ange.

    What’s the betting that when she presents at the Oscars on Sunday that she takes Zamperini along as her date?

    The segment’s below and it’s vaguely interesting if only to check in on Angie’s latest facial fillers and how they look on film.

    Hammond minister finds religious paralells in “12 Years a Slave”
    ================================================
    .
    Published: Tuesday, February 25, 2014
    .
    Director Steve McQueen’s Academy Award-nominated film, “12 Years a Slave” takes the viewer to an intimate place where slavery is lashed at and dehumanized just as the slaves were in pre-Civil War North America. Stanley N. Helton, Minister of the Word at First Christian Church of Hammond, was intrigued by the adapted screen play since he had read the book from which it was based, “12 Years a Slave: Narrative of Solomon Northup” by Solomon Northup. Helton came to the Student Union Theater to present the 14th annual Black History and Politics Lecture titled, “The Gods of Slavery: The Theology of Solomon Northup.”
    .

    The purpose of his presentation was to highlight the use of the Bible in Northup’s narrative throughout the film “12 Years a Slave,” and the impact of slavery and the Civil War on religious denominations. McQueen’s film tells the true story of Solomon Northup, a free black man in pre-Civil War America residing with his wife and children in Saratoga, N.Y. Northup was a violinist and well-known, respectable man about town. One day, he caught the attention of two white men claiming themselves to be “talent scouts.” The two men invited him to dinner and offered him a job playing violin for a traveling circus. Northup trusted the men and took the deal, but the next day woke up to shackles and brick walls; he had been drugged and kidnapped to be sold into slavery.
    .

    Northup was enslaved for 12 years on various plantation homes in Louisiana from 1841 to 1852, legally being released on Jan. 4, 1853. After seeing the film and reading the book, Helton believes Northup was particularly targeted because he was educated. This fact gives the film an interesting angle because Northup is an outsider even among slaves.
    .
    “My best guess is that Northup was introduced to the kidnappers as someone with some skills, particularly violin playing,” said Helton. “Northup was slow to believe the two had set him up.”
    .
    For 12 years, Northup is owned by three masters in Louisiana until he meets a Canadian abolitionist who helps him begin his journey back home. The story he wrote down after his release was published after the popular “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”. He feels the film and book can create a safe place for people to start a debate on the issue of slavery.
    .
    “The film has the potential of creating space where people can talk about the legacy of slavery in our country,” Helton said. “Northup’s story helps people to experience, in a limited way, how bad slavery was, and he shows in his book that slavery dehumanized both the slave and the slave owner.”
    .
    Northup, played by British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, witnesses horrid, vile actions during his years as a slave. It was his desperation and willingness to survive which ultimately redelivers him into freedom. Questions Helton brought to the audience’s mind included, “If God is the god of both the slave and the free, then why are some slaves?” and “If God is in charge, how did the master become God?” These are areas Northup’s writing explores, “pitting God’s sovereignty against human responsibility,” according to Helton.
    .
    The film has already won eight awards and is up for Best Picture at the Oscars on March 2. Helton hopes the film will be a vehicle for the public to use in the debate of racism, religion and human trafficking.
    .
    “I think Northup’s relevance for today is that he addresses enduring challenges,” Helton said. “His story is a story about human trafficking, which has received recent attention. His story raises the issue of respect for other cultures and reminds us that there are no easy answers, but there are no answers if we do nothing.”

    VIDEO: Angelina Jolie on New Film UNBROKEN: ‘Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Done’
    ==================================================================
    .
    February 25 9:40
    .

    Angelina Jolie speaks exclusively to NBC’s Tom Brokaw about directing “Unbroken,” a film that profiles World War II hero and former Olympic distance runner Louis Zamperini. “The resilience and the strength of the human spirit is an extraordinary thing,” the Academy Award-winning actress says of the project. Watch the interview below!
    .
    Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie directs and produces UNBROKEN, an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII-only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. Watch the first trailer below!
    .
    Adapted from Laura Hillenbrand’s (“Seabiscuit: An American Legend”) enormously popular book, Unbroken brings to the big screen Zamperini’s unbelievable and inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit.
    .
    Starring alongside O’Connell are Domhnall Gleeson and Finn Wittrock as Phil and Mac-the airmen with whom Zamperini endured perilous weeks adrift in the open Pacific-Garrett Hedlund and John Magaro as fellow POWs who find an unexpected camaraderie during their internment, Alex Russell as Zamperini’s brother, Pete, and in his English-language feature debut, Japanese actor Miyavi as the brutal camp guard known only to the men as “The Bird.”
    .
    The film is produced by Jolie, as well as Matthew Baer (City by the Sea), Erwin Stoff (The Day the Earth Stood Still) and Clayton Townsend (This Is 40). Leading the accomplished behind-the-scenes crew is 10-time Oscar®-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins (Skyfall).
    .

    Academy Award-winners Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men) rewrote the screenplay from earlier drafts by William Nicholson (LES MISERABLES) and Richard LaGravenese (HBO’s Behind the Candelabra).

    Oops: Angelina Jolie’s UNHCR Mission To The Lebanon Didn’t Quite Go To Plan, Then
    ======================================================

    Angelina Jolie has taken a break from, well, having a break, to go and poke kids and talk at them in a language they don’t understand whilst they wonder who on earth the skinny lady is over in the Lebanon.

    The 38-year-old mother-of-six and UNHCR special envoy arrived in Zahle near the border of Syria on Saturday – which is home to an estimated 300,000 Syrian refugees.

    After touring the Bekka province on Sunday, Angelina met with Lebanese Prime Minister Tamman Salam on Monday morning.

    Hilariously though, shortly after arriving, poor old Ange was told that security personnel felt that informing paparazzi of her visit would be a grave risk to her safety and that the trip would have to be conducted in secret – without her giving ANY press conferences.

    “Jolie will be visiting Syrian refugee families, but will not be holding any press conferences,” Joelle Eid, who is the UNCHR spokeswoman in the Lebanon, told reporters.

    Ha! that’s the last time she’ll be going there, then.

    And, the trip was timed so perfectly with Brad hoping he’ll finally win an Oscar at the Academy Awards and voting ending on February 25th.

    Great interview. They’re so sweet together and there’s a lot of love there. When It was first reported that Angelina would be directing Unbroken, the article said that Universal was really impressed with how she wanted to tell the story. Now, we hear from Angelina how she really fought hard for it.

    Wow, you can see Brad and Angelina’s house from Louis’. Did you hear when Angelina said, yeah, you can see my roof from his house. And she said for the last 10 years. LOL. As we’ve been saying Brad and Angelina are going into their 10th year together.

    I see Tam$hit, the fvckwit putz, is ranting like the tabloid, addled psycho that he is. What do you expect from someone that says that they’d murder Angelina by stabbing her 100 times, someone that wishes anything to do with Cancer on three beautiful children. Someone that says that Angelina should be stoned to death. And someone that is a proud member of Fat Fvcks R Us, who believe that Angelina works for the cIA. That the Cia puts Brad and Angelina’s faces on other people’s bodies, that the proof that Angelina didn’t direct Unbroken is because she didn’t have tan lines or that Brad self funded WWZ? Let’s not forget the voodoo.

    It’s going to be so much fun watching the meltdown come Sunday. The meltdown that is going to happen when Angelina starts promotion for Maleficent.

    Oh and Tacky is back in town, I see. He can make it back to HW for Ticky, but, se can’t take a 5 hour flight to NYC to be with him after he lost a good friend to an overdose? I guess, he gets a bonus check and all is forgiven.

Has my stalker finished creating… err… I mean, “uncovered” my FB profile yet? Having the filthy Ho visiting Middle East countries is a good a idea if she wants to come up with a new background for me. 35 seems such a good age to be though, it brings back good memories, so I wish for loons to keep my new identity to be that age, please! ;) The old Ho looks way older than 38, she looks more like she’s 83… I definitely look younger than her. Back on topic:

    @Phool.:

    So the Ho was not allowed to draw attention from the media? Poor babe; good thing her cousin is always ready to step in when she needs a pap shot! Heroina could never take a “humanitarian” trip without bringing a camera crew in tow to bring awareness to her favorite cause: herself. Come on, asking her to work with no cameras to document her every move is like asking Beyonce to perform with no wig on. Heroina is who defined the standards attention seeking stunts in the late 90s, and to this day she remains the leader of all media vvhores.

    @Ⱦamsin:
    Hey tampon, care to explain why the head honcho over at FF, your voodoo goddess is a homophobe who doesn’t even like your kind:
    I apologize for NONE of my comments; my OWN SON is a homosexual, and it makes me SICK to think about it, because I KNOW what is out there; he has NO idea of the depths of degradation lying in wait for him! Plus, I finally got downright revolted by the homosexual dynamic after reading in a local homosexual tabloid about the disturbing trend of ‘barebacking”, or having sex without condoms. This was back a number of YEARS ago, so doubtless the “barebacking”trend is WAY more common than ever since I read that article! One would think the gay community would have learned its lesson with the AIDS holocaust that decimated their numbers, but evidently NOT!!!
    And another:
    My son is old enough to live on his own now. And neither I nor Dr. Dee want homosexual activities going on in our house, thanks. As well, he was badly brought up; ill-mannered, disrespectful and arrogant. I doubt I could have him around for more than a day. It is apparent to me now that just because someone WANTS to be a mother, doesn’t mean they are qualified to do so! Wish I knew that back then; I would have been more selective in the choice of his adoptive parents.

    What do you guys think of a mother like this? I have a google alert for mother-daughter news and this article popped up in my inbox recently: http://bit.ly/1cM5RjD
    .
    But heres the part that really disturbed me. She said:
    “Last week I sat with my eldest, all of seven-and-a-half, with unstoppable tears pouring down my cheeks. As she held back her own tears with amazing restraint, she declared that she had no friends.
    .
    “Although she does have friends, I understood her plight all too well as I remember vividly the overwhelming loneliness I felt at that young age. Had we really reached this stage? Where my empathies for my child’s pain had progressed from the average physical injuries of scraped knees and bruises, to the piercing emotional pains of loneliness and sadness?”
    .
    .
    “Piercing emotional pains of loneliness and sadness?” WTH? Simply because her little 7 yr old told her that she has no friends? Ive found that generally, little kids from age 1 to at least 10 are usually very friendly and empathetic. At the same time, however, they are always falling in and out of friendship and come running to a related/interested adult to complain that “So-and-So is not being my friend”
    .
    But by no means does this rise to the level of a “piercing and emotional pain of loneliness” ……………unless an emotionally unstable person such as this mother, turns it into something bigger than it is and starts weeping and thereby frightening an impressioable little kid.
    .
    That smacks of emotional abuse to my mind.

    Good afternoon to all the great fans of the JoliePitts.
    .
    Reposting the below article. Why Jen’s Hags all deny they are her fans.
    .
    Here is the reason WHY Jennifer Aniston’s Hags ALWAYS deny they are her fans. Their disgusting reputation precedes them everywhere.
    .
    Cassandra James,
    Jul 11, 2010
    .
    What’s Wrong with Jennifer Aniston Fans? Why Are They so Full of Hate?
    As a Writer Who Expresses an Opinion, I’m Amazed by the Sheer Hatred Spewed at Me from So-called Jennifer Aniston Fans
    .
    One of the things that comes with the job of being a writer is receiving hate mail or hate comments from people who disagree with you. Not one to worry about disagreement, and welcoming an opposing opinion as long as it’s given politely, I must admit even I’m blown away by the sheer hatred and anger directed at me by so-called Jennifer Aniston fans.
    Checking with other writers, who’ve also written pieces about Jennifer Aniston, they too have said people who adore Jennifer Aniston and, by default, usually hate Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt, are often some of the nastiest people they’ve ever come across. Particularly with online articles, as the medium is so immediate, if I publish an article about Jennifer Aniston one night, I guarantee I will wake up to over 200 disgusting, nasty and hate-filled comments the day after.
    But the writer in me honestly wonders why?
    As someone who has never been that interested in actors or actresses (let’s face it, many of them are pretty self-involved, uninteresting people), I can’t say I’ve ever been obsessed with a famous person. People who like Jennifer Aniston however not only seem to be completely obsessed with the actress, but also see it as their job to defend her from slights they see or slights magined. It does make me wonder though what kind of sad lives do some of these people lead if they think defending an actress’s ‘honor’, an actress who doesn’t even know they exist and, quite frankly probably doesn’t care, is their mission in life?
    With Jennifer Aniston, I think part of the obsession and sheer maniacal loyalty of many of her fans is not because of the actress herself. Instead, it’s because these ‘fans’ are mixing up the real life Jennifer Aniston with the fictitious Rachel Green of ‘Friends’. Kooky, quirky, funny and a little odd, the character of Rachel Green wormed her way into much of America’s hearts and, over the many years ‘Friends’ aired, Rachel Green became one of the country’s most famous characters. But……folks………that’s all she is. A character. In fact, Rachel Green is no closer to the real personality of Jennifer Aniston than is the personality of Angelina Jolie or that of a Pulitzer prize winning scientist. Even Jennifer Aniston has admitted that.
    I often wonder too how embarrassed Jennifer Aniston would be if she knew the way some of her fans behave. I imagine she’d not only be ashamed that people with that much hatred were saying things in her name but, frankly, she’d probably be more than a little scared too.
    After all, if they’re that easily provoked to attack a writer they’ve never met and likely never will, simply because she or he has said something they don’t like, what would they be likely to do if Jennifer Aniston herself suddenly disappointed them And that’s more than a little scary to contemplate, isn’t it?

    Thank you Rachel for your kind efforts in trying to educate the evil, hateful trolls. We can only hope that some truth will one day sink into their demented minds.
    .
    .
    You r an evil person whoever u are. Ms. Jolie is sent by the UN. They want the publicity for the very purpose of bringing attention to the refugees. Of course I know u people r mentally ill and sad human beings but I will state the obvious nonetheless. The whole purpose of the trip is to bring attention. That is why they ask celebrities from many fields (Ms. Jolie is not the only ambassador) to be UN ambassadors. They don’t just take any one. No one does this dangerous work for 12 years for superficial publicity. also Ms. Jolie pays her own way for these trips. She is not paid. My you people are stupid, racists and pathetic. The people who like her can be a bit much but to hate someone you don’t know and then to come here and argue w/ people you don’t know means you people have a sad pathetic excuse for a life. I don’t argue w/ fools and stupid people so don’t respond to me. I only state facts in the event someone who does not know happens upon this blog and I would hate for some kid or teenager to think the ramblings of the haters was the truth.

    Love the JoliePitts Says:

    Lylian, I hope you will not mind my reposting your excellent analysis as to:
    .
    1. Whether Jennifer Aniston (aka JHO) could ever feel ‘embarrassed’ to know how low down in the gutter and evil her fans really are.
    .
    2. Whether JHO might fear her disgusting fans might turn on her should she disappoint them one day.
    >>>>>>>>>>>
    .
    (1) No, JHo would not be embarrassed about her fans. After all, this is the mean girl who happily encouraged her b!!tch Handjob to call Angelina names.
    .
    (2) JHo’s fans are too dishonest, too pathological to ever be embarrassed by or turn against JHo. Look, Jho had an affair with gigolo when gigolo was still in a relationship with Heidi Bivens and they still defended her. A lot of JHo’s fans don’t operate at a conscious level of feelings. That’s why they are JHo’s fans. Anyone else with any true insight into themselves, any sort of conscious thoughtfulness sufficient to understand when they are being hypocritical would, after all these years, either ignore JHo because she is irrelevant or hold her in contempt because she’s pitiful.

    Ⱦamsin Says:

    Why not addressing what’s really important here? Natalie Portman chose to not get papped while directing her movie. Why is she not taking a leaf out of Ho’s book if she wants to be as successful as you loons hype your idol to be?

    Why doesn’t the Ho have any friends and is trying to pass a man in his late 90s for one, when we know he’s getting paid to have a movie made after him?

    The Ho claims to be close to Zamperini but in the meantime she continues to resent her father and avoids having contact with him… what kind of sane woman does this to a parent, when she’s got children of her own, and knows that a parent’s love knows no boundaries? What kind of vile, psychotic person do you have to be to continue to hate your father for so long, and stage a PR father-daughter relationship to an elderly man who only knows her because she’s making money out of him?

    Hi my Lady Rose,
    .
    We have been told to expect rain late Wednesday evening, Rose. So looking forward to it.
    .
    Rose wasn’t that a wonderful interview with Tom Brokaw, Angelina and Louis. How very happy Louis looked to see his movie finally on the screen and Angelina having done a wonderful job with it. We know she still has to finish the post production on it but how proud she must be to know it is virtually complete.
    .
    Looking back on the “Unbroken” experience everything seems to have happened so quickly. Where did the time go? It seems she and Brad were celebrating her being chosen by Universal, then she was on her way to Australia to make the picture now she is showing previews of the picture on TV and at the Olympics.
    .
    What an even greater fitting tribute to Louis to see that brief clip about his Olympic achievements at Sochi and to see his story being told on that screen.
    .
    I am so happy for him and that Angelina has been able to do what she set her heart to do. And she looks so beautiful. God bless her beautiful heart.
    .
    Rose, I don’t think we have seen Ms 2% yet because her face is still not ready. And I will not be surprised to see most of her face is covered up at the Oscars. Oh yes, — somehow, she will make an appearance. I think we can count on that. :)

    The stooopid dumb fvckwit putz (credit to O2 lol) thinks that Top Class Celebs CHOOSE whether or not they get papped. LMFAO
    .
    Fvcking m0r0n. The whole raison d’etre of the papparazzi is to take UNSOLICITED photographs of celebrities in the hope that they can sell said photographs to media houses FOR MONEY THAT THEY CAN THEN PUT IN THEIR POCKET. Thats how the papps earn their living.
    .
    The fact that in addition to this kind of invasion of privacy that most celebs suffer ………..(and the more famous they are the more pervasive and invasive the papps become)…………..some lesser celebs also, in the course of their own self promotion, enter into clandestine arrangements with photo agencies directly or papps directly, is a whole different animal and completely separate and apart from the invasion of privacy that genuine Celebrities suffer at the hands of riff-raff papps.
    .
    We know that your stinking dumb @rse knows this. But it blows your nasty cesspool of a brain-on-psychotropic-meds that there are scores of so-called celebs out there who are of NO INTEREST to the papparazzi because the papps know that said celebs are of NO INTEREST to nasty stinking parasites like you.

    Hi to you my dearest, FALP,
    .
    I tried to post the below to you last evening but Jared’s blog shut down and I did not get access to it until this afternoon. Anyway, before I get locked out again, my love, here it is:
    .
    FALP, my darling, I am still looking for my rain barrels. I will get them yet.. :) What a brilliant idea you shared. But then all of your posts are filled with good meaning and helpful thoughts to consider.
    .
    Right now we are down to Mandatory water rationing so I hope the promise of rain by Wednesday evening comes true.
    .
    I have been out of town for quite awhile so I know I have probably missed many of your posts but I did see where you gave Cookie a very gentle, kindly set down…..as only you would do. :) You sliced and diced him up with such a fine and genteel blade I think he felt no real pain and had no retort. Good for you. Your heart is too kind. :)
    .
    FALP I cannot get over how much Angelina has accomplished in so short a span of time. She is truly a phenom in every sense of the word. Brad was correct in describing her as a “Force.” And it is clear her children love her very much. And I loved what Kelly said about observing her and Brad on the airplane. Actions do speak louder than words and I love how they interact with each other and their children.
    .
    Poor trolls are so angry because Angelina is soaring higher and higher despite all their hateful efforts to try and discredit her. The troll’s own hate is consuming them and their idol and they can’t even recognize it.
    .
    Yet Angelina’s heart remains full of love when she sets her mind to accomplish something.
    .
    I thought it was so telling when in one of the articles Phool posted it was written that Angelina’s “Light” touched them. Amazing how Love is so palpable even when people meet who do not speak the same language. No words necessary. But Love is felt. I think that says everything about how much Angelina’s visit meant to the refugees in Lebanon. Especially to those beautiful children.
    .
    I won’t make this post too long, my dear. I know you are a very busy lady.
    .
    I hope you have a wonderful day, my darling, and a week filled with beautiful things and experiences.
    .
    God bless you and keep you safe every where you go.

    Just give it up, trolls. First off, you’re preaching to the choir…secondly, you can no more bring Angelina down than the pants of your skeevy idol. You are losers…that is why you chose a loser to idolize. You do relate to the tick that is why you like her and defend her so much. Nobody likes a loser….so fans go for the winnes, Brad and Angelina.

    Afternoon folks. Just popping in quick with a thought. The Hair recently shoot ads for both Aveeno and Living Po. It would not surprise me if we see those ads run during the Oscars. That will be how the fameho will try to get some Oscar shine since they dont’ want her up on the stage. Oh, I am sure she will at least drag her gigolo to the Before the Oscars party and try to get at many pics with real stars as possible, esp. if they are know to be friends of either Brad or Angelina.

    Saw this at People (surprised they went there with some of these):

    Cursed? From Oscar to Split!

    Go to the awards together – and break up within a year. From Julia and Benjamin to Leo and Gisele, see the couples who were casualties of the Oscar jinx!

    (And look who we have here)

    JENNIFER ANISTON & JOHN MAYER

    From Oscar to Split: 2 weeks
    Mayer provided “moral support” to Aniston in ’09 – when she stood as a presenter before ex-husband Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Still, the on-and-off couple’s union was fleeting – days later they were no longer together. Just chalk it up the Oscar curse!

    Remember when Ticky and Vaughn were together and they didn’t see each other for 2 months. And then she went to London to visit him at the end of October? Then Vaughn did his own version of coyote ugly and got caught with a college co-ed in Budapest? And they weren’t broken up yet? And she sent an e-mail to her Sorority Sisters that got out?

    Good times. Here’s the e-mail:

    My dearest Gammas,

    Do I have a story for you. I love you all and hope you dont judge me ;)

    So I am in Budapest this past weekend with my two friends Kelly and Lauren, and we are sitting at this vey nice, trendy new restaurant in the city for dinner when in walks Vince Vaughn. He was with two friends and they sat at a table just two away from us. While I was a tad starstruck, we decided to play it cool and act like it wasnt a big deal, not wanting to be annoying and interrupt his dinner. However, I couldnt help but let my eyes wander at one point, and he totally caught me and smiled back and said hello. I smiled and said hi but went immediately back to talking to my friends so I didn’t seem desperate. A little later he gets up to smoke and on his way back stops and starts chatting with us. He talked to us for about 15 minutes, it was really casual, and he just wished us well and went back to his table. After drawing our meal out as long as we could (we were ordering dessert, wine, coffee, the works so we could stay and watch him lol), he finally gets up and leaves so we decided it was time to go. We had no intention of seeing him again, but just thought it was totally cool we even got to talk to him. When we leave the restaurant we decide to check out one of the big bars in Budapest close by. As we are walking in, we see Vince and his friends outside smoking, so of course had to go talk to him. I made some little comment like ‘so what are you guys following us or something’ and the next thing we know they’re inviting us in to have a drink.

    Once it was about 2am all the bars were closing so they suggest going to the hotel bar for another drink. We were thinking omg, but said ok. However, when we got to the hotel, the guy tells us that the bar is closed, and the only way we can get drinks is if we order them from the room. We felt so comfortable with them at this point, (we had been with them for like, 5 hours), and they were not at all sketchy or wierd about it, so we said ok. We went up to the suite and ordered room service and just hung out and listened to music and played would you rather (again, vinces suggestion) and it was so chill. At this point things had started to get a little ‘couply,’ and Vince and I had been talking soooo much to each other, and we started to cuddle a little on his couch and get really close. After a little while his friends had to go cuz they had an early flight and my friends decided it was time to leave too. As we were getting up he asks me if i want to stay for another drink, and I said ok. I did not feel pressured at all and felt just totally comfortable, as did my friends. He assured me he would get me back in time for my flight at 11, and next thing I know it was me and Vince Vaughn alone in the hotel room. For a while we just had a drink and talked some more (and yes, we talked about Jen) and one thing led to another and obviously we were messing around before too long. We didnt have sex, but it was just as good :)

    Afterwards we just laid in his gigantic beautiful bed with satin sheets, smoking ciggarettes and talking about life. He had a gorgeous view of the river and Buda castle from his window, and we watched the sunrise. I felt like I was in a movie. We didn’t ever go to sleep and in the morning he walked me out and kissed me goodbye in front of everyone and was so sweet.

    So yes, I spent the night with Vince Vaughn in Budapest and it was fabulous. I can die happy.

    Hope you’re all doing well and I cant wait to see you in just a few more short weeks!!!! :)

    Then Huvane comes out and says, well, they broke up after her trip to London in Oct. Than why didn’t they announce it then? Oh, that’s right, they weren’t broken up. He just wanted to be and so he made sure to do something to make her cry Uncle.

    Then John Mayer gives a press conference to the paps explaining why he had to dump her the first time.

    She gets called a sports fvck by Josh Hopkins. Gets dumped by model boy. Harry Morton preferred Lindsey and Paris. Bradley Cooper preferred Renee Z. Gerard preferred tonguing a complete stranger on the street. Scott Stubin preferred Molly Sims. Adam Duritz preferred CC. Tate D. preferred life without the shallow b!tch.

    And we know Brad much prefers his life with Angelina and their 6 children to the dead-end bore that he had to be stoned to be with.

    Several JP fans have drawn your attention to this particular poster, to no avail. It is right at this moment on Page 6/posts 132 and 134 of the most recent thread about Angelina’s interview on NBC this morning.

    I don’t think this affects the fans at all. I mean if you don’t want to see the kids you won’t. Fan sites have always had access to pictures that the trolls don’t.

    I remember when yuku stopped posting pictures. The trolls were celebrating the demise of the JP fans. That it was OVER.. only thing that was over was yuku.and all the trolls had to go and find somewhere else to post; the trolls could not make filthy comments about the kids. The fans still had access to pics. So all is good to any fan that is on a fansite. The trolls are the ones that will be missing out. NO nasty pics about their children Fine with me

Love, how is it possible for a person can be so filled with hate for someone it has never met. That boggles my mind. It’s really scary what A CREATURE like that tamshitt is roaming around and living among human beings.

    My Love, I cannot believe tacky could be so spineless, and he calls himself a New Yorker. Omg, he knows what she is capable of, you know she fights. dirty.

    I figured she had to be shooting some ads when Hair Boy said the extensions were for a project but I figured it was Dumb Water not Aveeno. But, let’s back track a sec – for the past 3-4 months Ticky has been snapped at skin clinics on 2 or 3 occasions. Now she’s shooting an Aveeno ad and telling the world how great their products are? Biitch, please. That’s fraud. If she shows up in the Living Poof ads with long hair then someone needs to file a false advertisement lawsuit against her and Living Poof. Ditto for Aveeno. She’s admitted to getting chemical burns and laser resurfacing but she’s taking Aveeno’s money to make people believe that it’s their products that keep most of her wrinkles at bay? That and Photoshop, of course. Anybody’s who’s ever seen an untouched closeup knows the truth – a 3 week bath in the Fountain of Youth couldn’t make that biitch look youthful again

    What happened to Ticky carrying on and on about her $3 Neutrogena facial soap bar that she’s used since she was in high school? I guess, Neutrogena saw her untouched photos and didn’t want her anywhere near being a spokesperson for them. LOL.

    One of the best books I have ever read and that’s saying a lot! I loved the story of Louie Zamperini and the many things he faced in his life. He was a MAN who was able to face life’s adversities and managed to come out on top. The reader feels Louie Zamperini’s lows such as when he is held prisoner during the war and causes us to cheer his highs, his Olympic days. This is one of those books where you will laugh, cry and when the book is over hate that it’s come to an end. Laura Hillenbrand is a top author who knows how to catch the attention of a variety of readers … from young to old … and enable each of us to love and want more of her books!

The CREATURES are here complaining but is afraid to leave because they can’t take their eyes away from this beautiful family.

    LOVE THE JOLIE PITTS and PASSING THROUGH – ladies I owe you each an apology.

    LTJP – I promised you some thoughts on the Baftas and I haven’t delivered yet.
    Sorry.
    The week after the Baftas was just hectic work wise and with various evening events on too. And then a personal matter reared it’s ugly head. The combination just left me physically and emotionally drained and I haven’t had a chance to put my thoughts together for either the email idea or a report on the awards.
    However, luckily, I know a very wise old lady who I turn to when things get tough. She has the most wonderful, ‘magical’ ability to heal people. You go to her in tears and come out floating on air!!
    So I’ve been back on the forum tonight, reading as many posts from the past few threads that I can and I’m intending to post soon.

    I have to agree with you re: Tacky, and I think he knows to watch his step and do exactly as he is told because he sees with his own eyes how ‘dirty’ Aniston does fight. He was her accomplice in deceiving and hurting Heidi. And what they did to Heidi will surely come right back on Aniston and him.

    How are you my dear sorry about the other day whilst you were on, I didn’t have much spear time to reply back to you in earnest, considering all the time you had taken out from your busy schedule to post to me. Ok where do we start you do know that I’m going to start where we last left off lol In regards to when you said “There have been so many wonderful threads about Brad and Angelina even I have lost count as to the last time I posted a response to you” LOL, I know what you mean Love, you know what its like, there are days like these when all their projects are aligned together like stars in the galaxy, we get one thread after another, and then there’s those days when we have gaps in periods where we hear nothing at all, those are the hardest just like the Gobi Desert waiting for rain lol..Ops sorry did I mention Rain considering you are awaiting for some, ( do some rain dance might work) only teasing I pray it rains in California. Ok where was I ? Yes the JP’s, well Love my dearest we have so many goodies to get through these Jolie Pitts do spoil us with their assortments of good news don’t they, its like opening a box of chocolate and you want to gauge on them all at once, yes even too much chocolate isn’t good for ones health, but who cares when there so sinfully delicious lol don’t you agree Love.
    .
    I had watched the live Bafta stream, all I say is these photos are just half of it what went on the red carpet Love, when the JP’s arrived literally minutes before Prince William arrived at local 6.30pm local time, everyone knew Royalty had already arrived when Brad & Angie got out of the limo, they were so gracious with their fans, signed all their autographs, all the while they still were so physically aware where the other was , those looks and constant touching that just needs to stop its already causing havoc amongst Tickys Hag army you know the screaming in the ocean was non stop but Love, I LOVED IT they have our blessing to carry on lol. Before I forget go to “Wire Images” you’ll get all the Bafta photos and look at the ones that were taken inside the auditorium , while people were getting seated, and there are 5 photos of Brad & Angie very animatedly talking, just mentioning incase to you incase you haven’t seen those. Also go over to “Getty Images” they have quite a lot of photos there too, considering Jared still cant managed to buy more than 4 photos a piece due to the astronomical JP photos prices, compared to the other Z-listers cough *Ticky* not every ones photos are in the bargain bucket of “buy one and get1000 free” lol.
    .
    As you mentioned the Big O “Oprah” now I’ll have to mention Oprah arrived well before the JP’s on the red carpet, Oprah was very excited as this was her first Bafta nomination & appearance so her excitement was very difficult to contain unlike her stitched up Stella McCartney dress lol ok ok I’ll be less bitchy. Any way where was I yeah Big O, all I have to say the women lingered as long as she could to bump into the JP’s I’m not joking seriously I don’t think they could have ignored her , considering Brad & Angie don’t bear grudges & Angie’s throughout has kept a dignified silence during all of Tickys public game playing via her friends handler & not forgetting one time Oprah included , she’s lucky she got the attention from them end off ( yes Love, I still cant forgive her for airing the Pity Party Interview and fanning the flames further more, but that’s my opinion no one has to agree with me) yes time has passed and Big O’s eyes have eventually been opened by Her Fraudness that is called Jennifer Aniston, no wonder Big O went sniffing around Brad for a producer job on Selma , Brad didn’t go to her, it was she who went to Brad & Plan B for a producing gig.
    .
    Just when you think I’ve already snarled on Big O there is more *don’t groan* lol, did you see the smile on Big O’s face, and I swear Love, if Big O’s smile could have gotten any more wider, I swear the women would have swallowed Angie whole lol, she was that delicious no wonder eyes were popping out of O’s head, like I said O should thank her lucky starts that Angie & Brad are gracious and doesn’t hold any petty grudges unlike a certain 45 year old HAG Ticky, now if O had done the reverse with Ticky I bet you Ticky she’d have stalked her do death & call her ‘her Cancer’ like does to her own mother. I have a feeling this post is too long I’ve already pissed Trolls off with my posts of JP news and this on top is like sprinkling cyanide instead of a sweetener in the coffee lol.

    Here I am AGAIN shameless aren’t I Love, remember the photos from, “Unbroken” wrap party in Oz the ones in the car where Angie’s hand is on Brads lips, ok we weren’t sure if they were taken prior to attending the party of after nonetheless I can assure you one thing that is blatantly clear that Angie was wiping off her lipstick from his lips , is it any wonder Brad did have that extra glossy lips, twinkling eyes even at night time those were twinkling alright, and not forgetting that beaming smile, oh hang on time to close the windows screaming from the ocean yes AGAIN.
    .
    Love, I loved them on the Bafta Red carpet you know this time last year Brad & Angie were still going through her Operations, just look at them now bless them no wonder they got the look of a couple whose got the weight of the world off their shoulders. A day doesn’t go by that I don’t wish them well , happiness & long life with each other, they are soul mates in every sense of the way. They are so compatible & compliment each other in every area of their lives together..
    .
    I was so emotional when I saw “Unbroken” for the first time, you know what a great job Angie has done and with Louis Zamperini’s participation in it makes it ever so more special. No wonder young Louis has that extra twinkle in his eye, you know this project was in doldrums for so long and it took a young 38 year old brave women to pitch to Universal what she wanted to do, and so impressed they were, that not only she got the Directing job, she got every Oscar winner & Oscar nominated colleagues to work with her, and all this was completed right within the given time scale that was given by her bosses, yes the girls done good, mamas brought the goods home alright. And every time I read Jack O’Connell’s interviews I can see why Angie chose ‘Him’ to play Louis , he may be 23 year old, but man he has a very sensible head on his shoulders. By reading his interviews, especially the Collider one, just gives you the insight how much he appreciates and respects Angie, to be given this opportunity. I can assure you he has made a friend in Angie’ for life’, I also hope they can work together again. Like Jack said he cant wait to promote this movie and that they are sitting on ‘something special and how peoples perceptions of him changed after seeing his work. Now if that’s not a great endorsement what is? Just reading about ‘Unbroken’ makes me wish it was the 25th December already .
    .
    Love, the more the haters try to deflect attention away from JP’s , just look at the biggest Joke that is their idol Aniston’s ‘ plant and deny’ saving the Dolphin stories can some one get any more pathetic in their trolling the JP’s Bafta success and she had the cheek to still throw shade on JP’s In the process, this women will always remain a serpent shedding skin, but still a serpent nonetheless, she tries her best but fails every time no wonder she’s a laughing stock around the net,( I wouldn’t use the word ‘WORLD’ as we now the HAG is not that famous any where apart from US & parts of UK. So pathetic isn’t it, these constant ‘ Pity Party games’ of hers, keep on proving our point she cant move on , don’t blame her Fiancé Justin Theroux for dumping her sorry A$$. This women cant even make a mere flight from LA to NYC to be with her grieving fiancée whom she said a couple of months ago was the real love of her life, who’s at a venerable stage at the moment, considering his past addictions and his friend Philip dying, this could become a slippery path for him too, what’s not to say he already has? So instead of going there and be there for him like a loved ones dose, she stays in LA sunning her leathery old A$$ and making out she is working, we know what’s she working on all these plant & deny stories. If Angie can up sticks from a busy editing schedule and gets on a plane from LA to UK, yes UK, for her hubby Brad , and supported him like a loving partner would do, not forgetting Brad got on the plain in the midst of shooting Fury from UK to LA with out a moment of hesitation for Angie’s Humanitarian Oscar , so why cant an unemployed 45 year old women do it ? yeah she’s busy saving dolphins LMAO can this shiit get any funnier. Oh look another EX Hag Goop Cheating Again lol at least these EX’s are good for a laugh don’t you think.

    I guess, according to our resident troll, who insists that Angelina isn’t well liked in the industry, than Angelina has bought off Awards Daily and Sasha Stone? ROTFLMAO!

    And I guess, she’s bought off Ellen DeGeneres too:

    Ellen DeGeneres ‏@TheEllenShow · Feb 24
    So many incredible people are presenting at the #Oscars. I won’t name names, but it Will (Smith) be a (Angelina) Jolie good time. #Oscars

    re: “Right now we are down to Mandatory water rationing”
    interesting, we are not…not yet anyway. Another thing…
    1. I have never washed my car LOL, I always park it outside when the rains come to wash it, never use soap…bad for the car and for the environment.
    2. when I rinse my dishes before I put them into the dishwasher, I plug the sink and use that water to water my plants…food residue is good for plants right?…it’s all recyclable.
    3. I also do something really silly but practical, I’ve taken my potted plants and put them on top of my irises which if you garden know have these long sideway roots, I put my potted plants on top of the root areas so the water drainage from watering the potted plants also waters my irises LOL. Desperate situations call for desperate solutions ROTFLOL.
    4. if it gets really bad…I’ve known people who plug their tubs when taking a shower and use that dirty water to water their plants and I may resort to that.
    I also have a pond which collects water from rainy days and I use that water to water my twelve fruit trees etc…can’t drain the pond too much or it will get too shallow and the raccoons get into it and have eaten my fish. It’s alot of lugging but good exercise LOL.
    >>>>>>>>>>>
    re: “I am still looking for my rain barrels.”
    I got mine at Sam’s Club, 50 gallon containers for $60 each, then you need a pump. You place all the barrels at elevating heights so water drains down to the lowest barrel as you use the water up, use a short garden hose to link them together, then a longer garden hose on the lowest barrel with the pump in it to water your plants. You do need an outdoor electrical outlet for the pump with a switch. If that is not possible the lowest barrel has to be elevated about five feet higher than ground level in order for gravity to drain the water assuming you have level property. I also saw the ones I have (Suncast RB50D 50-Gallon Rain Barrel) at EBay for $46.89 + S/H, only two left, not a bid, other prices at EBay go up to $249 but I did see a $79.99 and a $89.99 pricing … Sears for $94.99, Walmart for $92.53 out of stock online, Amazon.com for $92.53 with free shipping… got 4/5 rating, Home Depot $99.97 in stock online. I know these may be quite a bit more expensive than Sams Club. I have never seen this type before but it’s worth the price because the top has a fine mesh where the rain water goes in from your gutter spouts and you can literally let the water sit in the containers for long periods of time with absolutely no worry of mosquitoes laying eggs on the water…the mosquitoes cannot get in because the mesh is too small. Also each comes with a short connecting hose to link barrels or to attach to a longer hose to water whatever.
    Do not purchase the nylon ones, collapsible or not, they will rip and not last very long.
    Good news is desalination is moving along. It’s been bantered about since the 1970′s but it’s expensive to build and environmentalists say it kills the ocean wildlife as they are sucked with the water through filter screens to desalination but Calif has potentials…the Carlsbad Desalination Project actually is functioning, I think it can potentially reroute water to So. Cal and they are considering one in Monterey and there is an abandoned facility from the 1990′s in Santa Barbara which has problems. I’ve read due to global warming, it will get worse before it gets better…may even extend into 2015!!!

    Well, that dirty trick seems to have worked. The overwhelming critical acclaim TYAS started receiving the minute it got out of the gate alerted its competitors to undermine it immediately and saying it was “too violent” was the ticket. As if that has ever been a reason to not watch a film.
    .
    What a shame if this brilliant piece of filmmaking (writing, directing, acting, cinematography, score) loses out to the superficiality of the prettier and splashier films.
    .
    And, yes, the dissing and undermining of TYAS as a great film has been tinged with code words for racism.

    So, let me get this straight. A man’s account, Solomon Northrop, who was kidnapped into slavery and lived through it and was freed, is too violent for Academy members to watch? A true story is too violent to watch that doesn’t depict America and the white man in a flattering light? There was nothing flattering about slavery and it’s a horrible, horrible part of America’s history. They can’t hide from it. It happened. Way to keep your head in the sand and say, let’s move on because that just makes me too uncomfortable. GMAFB.

    Too violent? Wasn’t Silence of the Lambs too violent? The Departed? The Godfather? Schindler’s List? Oh, I get it. None of those films were about the history of black people. Or didn’t have a cast lead by a black actor and a cast that was made up hugely of black actors.

    Reading about academy voters depressed hell of me. I never knew they would not watch a nominated movie. I thought it would be the basic requirement for voters.

If 5 million regular Americans could watch it, why couldn’t academy voters watch it? Isn’t that their obligations to watch all nominated movies and make judgement? yes, this definitely isn’t about violence, it is about race. Racism exists in this country and in academy.

    http://www.deadline.com/2014/02/selma-mlk-movie-paramount-oprah-winfre y/
    Big news on the MLK movie front. Paramount is in final negotiations to acquire domestic distribution rights to Selma, a feature drama about Martin Luther King‘s 1965 landmark voting rights campaign regarded as the peak of the civil rights movement, and none other than Oprah Winfrey has boarded the project as producer. Paramount is tying down U.S. and Canadian distribution rights to the film. Ava DuVernay, who came aboard the project in July as director, rewrote the script and slipped it to Winfrey, who sparked to DuVernay’s rewrite. We’ve been waiting for a strong cinematic tribute to the iconic civil rights leader, and this remarkably becomes the second MLK project that Winfrey is involved in. Her Harpo is also being a seven-part HBO miniseries America: In the King Years, at HBO. Selma is on a much faster track. the plan is to get rolling in front of camera as soon as possible. Lining up a domestic deal and a name of Winfrey’s caliber were key to getting the ball rolling, and when the deal makes production is expected to start right away. Pathe UK, Brad Pitt’s Plan B and Christian Colson are already aboard as producers.

    Winfrey’s presence both on and off the screen was a big reason Lee Daniels’ The Butler traveled so well overseas. The Butler has grossed $167.7 million to date — more than $50M of that internationally. This gives Selma a leg up on the other two major features that are percolating. Oliver Stone last month saw a script rewrite on his MLK biopic rejected by DreamWorks and Warner Bros, and it caused him to back out of the project. Meanwhile, Paul Greengrass still isn’t ready to move on his biopic Memphis that he plans to make with Scott Rudin. .

    The Paradigm-repped DuVernay was the first black woman to win Best Director at Sundance for her second feature, last year’s drama Middle Of Nowhere. The former publicist apparently was approached by the Selma producers after they saw the microbudgeted indie, which was shot in 19 days in and around LA. Her Nowhere leading man David Oyelowo is set to play King.

    Selma is the project Lee Daniels was attached to direct, but the funding couldn’t come together in time and he subsequently signed on to The Butler. Daniels had lined up a terrific cast — Oyelowo, Hugh Jackman, Liam Neeson, Ray Winstone, Robert De Niro, and Cedric the Entertainer were among those who’d circled. Jackman even gained 30 pounds to play Jim Clark, a sheriff who arrested King; he eventually had to go lose the weight to star in Real Steel.

    “Why is Oprah getting top billing as Producer. This film has already been in play long before the Mighty O came on board. And she had nothing to do with the financing or putting it together. Seriously. She is not the head of this film nor the face of it.”

    And O is supposed to be the reason for The Butler success. Really? The critics and The Academy certainly didn’t think so. She, and her ego, need to take a seat. If this films gets any kind of awards traction, she is going to make it ALL ABOUT HER. Ugh.

    Yes. Phool is a great poster. And I am very glad you enjoyed her post.

    I must say, however, I did not share her post so it could be critiqued but only to be enjoyed.

    Nevertheless, since you have been overly generous in sharing your “pet peeve” with me, I do have one question for you.
    .
    Did you proofread and check your post before submitting it to the net as you admonish in your above sentence….”check your spelling please?”
    .
    I think you offer a very sensible suggestion and I will try and do that myself as I post.
    .
    I do ask that question only because, being the erudite that you obviously are, I am certain you were appalled when you saw the grammatically incorrect construct of the sentence you submitted below:
    .
    “……but I has one pet peeve…..why Phool keep using the word women……etc.”
    .

    But, no worries, and no need to fret or critique your post. We all understand how easy it is to mistype when posting rapidly on the net.
    It is a forgivable, minor offense.
    .
    So, we will overlook the grammatical faux pas and read it as you meant it to correctly read:
    .

    “……but I have one pet peeve…..why does Phool ……etc.”

    .
    And knowing that your pet peeve will not tolerate the use of the Plural Noun….. ‘women’ ….when the Singular Noun….. ‘woman’ …..is called for in a sentence, I can only conclude you must have been thrown into shock when you saw you had left out the very appropriate and ‘required’ Linking Verb…e.g….’does’ ……in your above sentence where you listed your pet peeve.
    .
    Well, rest easy. I knew what you meant.
    .
    I am certain most of us fans do not consider that to be an intentional English grammatical error on your part. These things tend to happen to all of us when we are typing swiftly on the net and usually most fans make allowances for those oversights and mistypes when reading another fan’s post.
    .
    Those things are no big deal amongst friends and fans.
    .
    Have a nice day.

    PBI Honors Brad Smith and the Department of Legal and Corporate Affairs at Microsoft for Outstanding Pro Bono Service
    ===============================================================================================================
    .
    Feb 20, 2014 – 08:00 AM EST
    .
    WASHINGTON, Feb. 20 /CSRwire/ – The Pro Bono Institute (PBI) has selected Executive Vice President and General Counsel Brad Smith and the Department of Legal and Corporate Affairs at Microsoft Corporation as the recipient of the 2014 Laurie D. Zelon Pro Bono Award for their outstanding commitment to pro bono legal services. The award will be presented at the PBI Annual Conference Reception at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., on March 6.
    .
    Led by Smith, Microsoft’s legal department of more than 1,000 legal, business, and corporate professionals in 55 countries has developed and supported numerous pro bono projects and played a major role in addressing the critical legal needs of the most vulnerable.
    .
    “We applaud Brad and the legal department at Microsoft for their steadfast commitment and inventive approaches to pro bono legal services,” PBI President and CEO Esther F. Lardent said. “Their unwavering efforts to aid the under-represented are admirable.”
    .
    An outstanding initiative has been Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), which Smith co-founded with the U.N. Refugee Agency Special Envoy Angelina Jolie in 2008.
    .
    KIND finds pro bono attorneys at major law firms, corporations, and law schools to represent children who come to the U.S. without a parent or guardian in search of safety and security. Microsoft attorneys have been key in this effort, volunteering their time and talents through KIND’s Seattle office – formerly Volunteer Advocates for Immigrant Justice (VAIJ) – and representing many of these children in their deportation proceedings.
    .
    KIND has been referred more than 5,500 unaccompanied children since its founding and has trained more than 6,000 attorneys to represent these children. KIND has also been successful in advocating for critical changes in U.S. law, policy, and practice to improve the treatment and protection of unaccompanied children and helping children return to Guatemala safely and sustainably through an innovative pilot project.
    .
    Smith was inspired to create KIND based on the success of the Seattle-based VAIJ, an initiative he founded a decade ago, with the American Bar Association’s Commission on Immigration that works to help immigrants in the Seattle area. Over the past decade, volunteers with VAIJ, including hundreds of Microsoft legal staff and others, have served thousands of immigrants, both children and adults, and helped hundreds attain lawful immigration status and security from abuse and persecution.
    Microsoft’s Department of Legal and Corporate Affairs’ other pro bono work includes drafting disaster relief provisions for global relief organizations and providing transactional legal advice to social entrepreneurs.
    .
    “At Microsoft, we believe it is our duty to extend our pro bono services to those who need it most in our communities locally and abroad,” Smith said. “We thank PBI for recognizing our dedication to serving some of the world’s most vulnerable groups.”

    Here’s How Angelina Jolie Convinced Universal Execs To Let Her Direct ‘Unbroken’
    =========================================================================

    .

    Feb. 25, 2014, 6:28 PM866
    .

    Angelina Jolie sat down with Tom Brokaw on the “Today” show Tuesday to discuss the upcoming movie she directed, “Unbroken,” about the incredible life of former Olympic runner and legendary World War II hero, Louis Zamperini.
    .
    “This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” Jolie revealed while holding hands with Zamperini during the interview.
    .
    So how did the actress, with just one director credit under her belt, land the directing gig of the film adaptation of the best-selling book of the same name?
    .
    “I had all the hours of phone calls and things and made all these boards, I took my glue and tape and pictures off the internet and tried to — and I put all my boards in a garbage bag and I carried them to Universal myself and put them out and I pitched my butt off!”
    .
    “I felt such a huge responsibility to get it right,” Jolie said. “I love him so much and he’s helped me so much in my life.”
    .
    Ironically, the 38-year-old Hollywood starlet and 97-year-old former Olympian were closer to each other before filming than they even realized. Zamperini’s home overlooks Jolie’s in the Hollywood Hills.
    .
    “I imagine that for the last 10-something years, he’s been sitting there having a coffee in the morning and wondering who’s going to make this movie!” Jolie exclaimed. “And I’ve been sitting in my room laying there thinking, ‘What am I supposed to be doing with my life? I wanna do something important. I need some help. I need some guidance. Where is it?’ And it was right outside my window.”
    .

    Oscars 2014: 12 Years a Slave, the hot favourite
    =====================================

    .

    Los Angeles,: February 26, 2014).
    .
    The harrowing story of a free black man’s nightmare experience of slavery is set to win the biggest prize in the movie world, with experts predicting that 12 Years a Slave is all but certain to win the Oscar for the year’s best picture.
    .
    The leading nominees are Gravity and American Hustle, each with 10 Oscar nominations, one more than 12 Years a Slave. But online bookies are taking bets at short odds of 4:1 that the drama by Steve McQueen will be the big winner on Sunday night when Hollywood’s royalty assembles to hand out the 2013 honours.
    .
    The status of 12 Years a Slave as the overwhelming favourite to take home the best picture prize is mirrored on the awards website Goldderby.com where all but five of the 29 experts polled picked the shocking slave drama as their Oscar favourite.
    .
    The five hold-outs gave their vote to Gravity, the gripping space thriller from Alfonso Cuaron that stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as a couple of astronauts stranded in outer space. The other early favourite for the Oscar, American Hustle, which picked up the Golden Globe for best comedy or musical, is no longer regarded as a realistic best picture frontrunner. This is due largely to the penchant often displayed by Oscar voters for more serious films that tackle heavyweight issues.
    .
    Other top nominees
    “Several of the nominees are smaller, more personal stories with only a few tackling big ideas in scope or emotion,” says Eric Larnick, film critic at moviefone.com. “Ultimately, it comes down to “Gravity” and “12 Years,” and the Academy has always favoured the movie about the human condition against the one that’s about the visual spectacle.”
    The other top nominees with six nods apiece are Captain Phillips, based on a true story about a ship hijacked by Somali pirates, Dallas Buyers Club about a sick cowboy’s attempt to secure experimental treatments for AIDS sufferers, and Nebraska, about an old man’s quixotic road trip to claim an imagined lottery prize.
    All the above movies will compete for best picture, along with Her, a futuristic romantic comedy about a man who falls in love with a computer avatar; Philomena, about an ageing woman’s search for the son taken away from her as a baby; and The Wolf of Wall Street, which tracks the life and excesses of a young millionaire trader in the US financial markets.
    If McQueen’s slave drama is the hot favourite for best picture, Gravity looks certain to be rewarded elsewhere on Oscar night, with all 29 experts picking Cuaron as the likely recipient of the director’s award for his work in recreating the visual effects of space on a sound stage through the use of new camera techniques.
    The acting awards are a tougher call. Mathew MaConaughy has won most of the earlier season prizes for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, in which he plays a cowboy diagnosed with AIDS, who ends up saving hundreds of other patients by important experimental drugs. His co-star Jared Leto is favoured for the supporting actor prize.
    Blue Jasmine’s Cate Blanchett is strongly tipped to take home the award for best actress, while Lupita Nyongo of 12 Years a Slave will battle it out with Jennifer Lawrence of American Hustle for the supporting actress award.
    Among the films nominated in the best foreign language category, the odds favour the lavish and sensitive Italian film by Paolo Sorrentino, The Great Beauty, which looks back at the life of an ageing bon vivant in Rome.

    Carrier chooses life with breast surgery
    =================================
    .
    Last updated 15:19 26/02/2014
    .

    Timaru woman Sally Parker is fighting breast cancer – she does not have the disease, but the likelihood of her succumbing to it is too great to ignore.
    .
    In 2008 she discovered, through genetic testing, that she had the gene BRCA 1, which can cause hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.
    .
    “From an early age, I have known cancer,” she explains. “My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 9-years-old and underwent surgery and treatment; and then continued to experience relapses for a further 10 years before passing away at age 47.”
    .
    Miss Parker was determined not to go down the same path as her mother. Instead, she started “high surveillance” monitoring from the age of 30, including yearly mammograms.
    .
    In her mid 30s, Miss Parker also added regular MRI scans to her list of early detection measures and started her journey of genetic testing.
    .
    She was the last person in her immediate family to have the test. Her siblings also tested positive.
    “Initially I was going to wait till I was older (at least 40) to consider prophylactic surgery (removal of breasts and ovaries). “However, when my cousin was diagnosed with breast cancer while undergoing prophylactic surgery, I thought ‘why am I waiting’ and ‘I need to be here for my son’.
    .
    “If I can dramatically reduce the risk of breast cancer I need to be proactive and start the journey (and) get on the wait list for surgery,” she says. She is pleased she did. “I have no regrets about my decision, I feel I have chosen life.”
    .
    The genes, BRCA 1 and BRCA 2, received global publicity after actress Angelina Jolie announced she had undergone preventive breast surgery last year.
    .
    “I feel Angelina’s courage to share (her story) has increased awareness and elevated the level of understanding, which hopefully also diminishes fear,” Miss Parker says.
    .
    “I think this encouraged conversation and may help others to make well informed decisions and start the genetic testing process.”
    .
    Miss Parker understands the gene is not gender specific. Males can be carriers and this does increase their risk of some cancers, she says.
    .
    Now she wants to help others taking a similar journey to her own. To do that she has set up a South Canterbury BRCA support group. The group will meet for the first time on March 23.
    .
    The group, which is one of five in New Zealand, will meet every three months. “Support meetings are a good opportunity to come along (to) ask questions, learn and share in a relaxed and informal setting with others,” she says.
    .
    People at all stages of the process can attend, including those who are considering being tested, those who have been tested, who are preparing for surgery and who are managing their risk through surveillance.

    William Hague: We must take global stand to end rape as a weapon of war
    ==============================================================
    .
    Published on the 26 February 2014

    .
    EVERYONE remembers who they shared a desk with at school. Well Hillary Clinton, the then US Secretary of State, and I shared a desk for two and a half years when I was a brand-new Foreign Secretary, at the UN Security Council and in meetings around the world where they seat nations in alphabetical order.
    .
    She would silence any room, just by walking into it. She always spoke the truth as she saw it, fearlessly. And she was fond of passing notes in class. I remember one that said: “William, let’s get out of here and have some fun.”
    .
    But there is a particular reason why we worked so well together across a political divide, as well as across the Atlantic: we both believe that foreign policy is not just about responding to crises, its goal must be to improve the condition of humanity. As nations, it is what we choose to do with our power that matters most of all, and that is the greatest testament to our values.
    .
    I believe that there is no greater strategic prize of the 21st century than the full social, political and economic empowerment of all women everywhere.
    .
    This must be the century in which women take their rightful place, in which hundreds of 
years of marginalisation are forcefully and finally overturned and extinguished, in which girls are born not into a world of narrow hopes and lesser protections, but into a world of equal treatment and boundless opportunity.
    .
    It is a cause that every Foreign Minister should champion, in a global effort to break down the barriers which hold women back and unlock their full potential.
    .
    It requires all the ingenuity and persistence that diplomacy can bring to bear, and should be part of the mission of each Ambassador in every Embassy of all democratic nations.
    We must turn commitments that exist on paper into education, jobs, equal participation and leadership positions for women.
    .
    We need to turn women’s invisible presence in many countries around the world into a visible force in every society: with women represented in every peace process, in every government, in all walks of life.
    In my view it is impossible to achieve that aspiration in a world in which the use of rape as a weapon of war goes unchallenged.
    .
    Many men and boys are victims of these crimes. Their plight too must be brought out of the shadows. But sexual violence in armed conflict disproportionately affects women, and is part of the crushing weight holding back women’s development.
    .
    It is also a major factor in creating refugee flows and perpetuating conflict. And it should be at the heart of how we view conflict prevention and foreign policy in this century.
    .
    In discussing this award we must acknowledge that it is still considered unusual for a man, and a politician, to raise these issues. But rape and sexual violence are crimes overwhelmingly committed by men. And that they should happen, while the world does nothing, should shame all men. Indeed to shy away from talking about these facts is in itself unmanly.
    .
    One woman who has inspired me is Angelina Jolie. Without her film In the Land of Blood and Honey this initiative would not exist at all.
    .
    It brought home to me that an estimated 50,000 women were raped in Bosnia 20 years ago, and that still today virtually none of them have seen any justice.
    .
    It made me think about Colombia, Rwanda, South Sudan, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mali, Liberia, Syria – the endless list of conflicts where women, children and men have been brutally assaulted, often as part of a military strategy, with total impunity.
    .
    Sexual violence is often one of the first things that happens as soon as conflict or instability take hold. Yet it is usually the last thing to be taken into account by those ending wars or rebuilding nations. Women bear the worst of the burden of war – but they have always benefited least from the peace.
    .
    This summer, we will co-host a global summit in London, which we intend will be a summit like no other: we are setting out to change the whole global attitude to these crimes, as well changing bureaucracies. We don’t just want to move the pens of Ministers, we are going to try to move the hearts of people. It is not enough to change countries’ laws, unless 
we change people’s whole mentality.
    .
    We hope that to create so much momentum that we begin to shatter the culture of impunity, so that in the future, far from any judge, prosecutor or law, any man with a gun in any conflict-zone will think twice before ordering or committing rape.
    .
    There will be many people who say that this is too big a task, too difficult, or that it requires too much change in the crooked timber of humanity ever to be successful.
    .
    If we don’t end impunity this problem will get worse not better. And we cannot hope to end other forms of pervasive discrimination against women if we are unable to stand up to one of the most extreme forms of violence against them.
    .

    Britain’s Hague, Angelina Jolie to chair summit on rape in war
    ========================================
    .
    (AFP)–8 hours ago
    .
    Washington — British Foreign Secretary William Hague and Hollywood screen idol Angelina Jolie are joining forces to co-host a high-profile summit this year focused on ending rape as a weapon of war.
    Hague pledged Tuesday that the four-day London gathering in June would “be a summit like no other” bringing together foreign ministers from 140 countries as he was awarded the 2014 Hillary Clinton prize for Women, Peace and Security.
    .
    It was Jolie’s film “In the Land of Blood and Honey” which first opened his eyes to the extent of sexual violence in conflict zones, he told the award ceremony at the prestigious Georgetown University in Washington.
    .
    “Sexual violence is often one of the first things that happens as soon as conflict or instability take hold,” Hague said.
    .
    “Yet it is usually the last thing to be taken into account by those ending wars or rebuilding nations,” he added, stressing that “women bear the worst of the burden of war.”
    .
    “We must remove rape and sexual violence from the world’s arsenal of cruelty,” he insisted.
    - Meeting would be largest yet –
    .
    The June 10-13 meeting would be the largest gathering ever to focus on sexual violence in conflict, and would also bring together armed forces, police units and legal experts, Hague explained.
    .
    It would ask countries “to write action against sexual violence into their military training and doctrine and their peace-keeping missions overseas,” as well as launch a new international protocol on investigating such crimes.
    .
    “But we are going to be even more ambitious than that. We are setting out to change the whole global attitude to these crimes, as well changing bureaucracies,” Hague said.
    .
    The hope was to create “so much momentum that we begin to shatter the culture of impunity,” he added.
    “If women are still treated in this abhorrent way in times of war, they will never be treated as equals in times of peace, and that cannot be tolerated.”
    .
    In presenting the award, former secretary of state Clinton said “women, peace and security… must be perceived as being integral” to all other global issues such as the conflict in Syria.
    .
    Also honored was Doctor Denis Mukwege, founder of the Panzi hospital in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which has treated tens of thousands of rape victims.
    .
    “The bodies of women become the battleground of conflict,” he said, warning many assaults on women are carried out by child soldiers brainwashed by the adults who have kidnapped them.
    .
    “Rape is not only an attack on women and girls, but also an assault on our common humanity,” Mukwege said.
    Jolie’s 2011 film, which marked her directorial debut, is a love story told against the backdrop of the Bosnian war two decades ago, when according to Hague some 50,000 women were raped. Virtually none of them have received justice, the British minister said.
    .
    “By taking up this cause we are shouldering a responsibility that our world has shirked for too long; and having taken it up, now we must never set it down again,” Hague said.

    Page 3 Profile: Louis Zamperini, former Olympian
    ======================================

    There’s a new man in Angelina Jolie’s life?
    Yes. Fear not though, she hasn’t chucked Brad Pitt. Jolie is directing a new film, Unbroken, based on the life of Louis Zamperini.
    .
    Zamperini? Never heard of him…
    Expect that to change this December. Mr Zamperini, who is now 97, is a former Olympic long-distance runner who survived as a prisoner of war in Japan. In earlier days he finished eighth in the Berlin Olympics but completed his final lap of the track so quickly that Hitler insisted on a personal meeting.
    .
    Quite a life story…
    Yes, and the film details his sheer determination and spirit. Mr Zamperini was enlisted in the US Air Force in 1941 only for his bomber plane to crash a year later. He survived 47 days in shark-infested waters before reaching land where he was captured. He was held until 1945 at a series of prisoner-of-war camps, where he was tortured and subjected to psychological abuse.
    .
    Presumably, those scars remain?
    Mr Zamperini suffered post-traumatic stress disorder but later converted to Christianity and launched a career as a speaker. He has even gone so far as to visit his former prison guards to let them know that he has forgiven them.
    .
    That’s where Ms Jolie comes in?
    Yes, Jolie has said she feels that Zamperini’s inspirational story offers a beacon of hope in troubled times. “[The world] can seem hopeless and it can seem very overwhelming. But the resilience and the strength of the human spirit is an extraordinary thing,” she said. The feeling’s mutual. In a recent interview Zamperini referred to her as “honey” and “my gal”, and she replied “I love you”. We’ll wait to see where it goes from here.

    This is the reason we proudly call our selves the fans of Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie, movies like ITLOBH & TYAS may not be No1 Box Office hits around the world but they have managed to do is get people talking and paying attention, they not only have contributed towards society in their own right morally or culturally, but also made people take account of injustices, which paved way towards new Law enforcers.
    Bothe movies hits you morally where it matters the most, both movies are powerful in their own right, one addresses ‘Rape’ the other addresses ‘Slavery’, have gained the stature they most deserved, so is it any wonder both movies in their own right are earmarked for ‘making a change from injustices of the world’.
    ITA, it was Angelina Jolie’s film “In the Land of Blood and Honey” which first opened William Hague’s eyes to the extent of sexual violence in conflict zones, and that is coming from a man in my eyes is a greatest compliment publically made by a man of William Hague’s stature. Same can be said about Brads “12 Years a Slave” is doing with the educational departments, its l contributions being chosen to be taught in US public schools and I bet it wont only stop at US only, what’s not to say its not already reaching wider audiences, this movie is harnessed into a powerful educational tool for other countries and their Slavery issues as well.
    They both have contributed towards todays society in their own way in making a difference & making a change, for having the guts in taking on taboo subjects and not shirking away from them, for that reason I would say its not only their children who are proud of their parents, nor only their families that are proud of their son & daughter but also their fans, like my self that are so proud to be a ‘brad & Angelina’ fan.

    How are you my sister, ITA Yes Rose Angie’s mention of the story boards did remind me about Dr Funks mention of her home visit and how impressed she was seeing Angie up and about immersed in her work, instead of getting bed rest like a normal mortal would do. Like I said Rose Angie is an inspiration in so many ways to men & women around the world that don’t let anything may it be health or any personal issue defeat you. Rose Angie’s Interview yesterday she did say Louis has helped her in so many ways personally too, and I think this is what she was alluding to, that his story gave her strength to carry on if he could do it so can she. Rose in our life we take inspiration & strength for others we admire, sometimes positivity carries us through all the hurdles in life , never be defeated if you are knocked down, get up and get on with it and make the best of what you have, we have the choice in our hands.
    .
    I think we can safely say both Brad & Angie are proud of each others accomplishments, they enhance each other in so many ways, moral of this relationship is love & encourage your partner in anything they do instead of competing with them because that will only lead to a dead-end literally loll.

    How are you my dear, I had posted to you back on the last thread yesterday, was too lazy to bring it over here when the new thread appeared,(only mentioning in case you’ve missed it), I see you are woman of your word *reposting my posts* despite the fact I did warn you didn’t I Love not to? Tut tut see the grammar police is out , kicking my a$$ the same way they did when I initially posted to you, yes if you go back you will see different moniker but same rant , with same grammar issues lol. Now tell me what are the odds of a Fan/Troll having the same issue of pointing out my in correction of typing ‘women/Woman’ both times LOL, Spooky isn’t it Love, considering from my 70000 worded post to you, they could only find 1 grammatical error, for that I would say I did a pretty good job don’t you agree? Only one mistake, I think I need to send a thank you note to my kinder garden teacher for not taking it against me when I couldn’t differentiate between women / woman otherwise id be doomed.
    .
    To be honest I wouldn’t have bothered replying to this poster, but bless you for it you are too kind. Love what baffles me is considering the JP threads are on daily basis littered with Rants against Brad & Angelina, littered with foul demeaning language towards JP’s and Fan’s, and yet you never hear a peep from the ‘Grammar Police’ do you? not a peep at all, but when I post positive news and post reply’s to fellow posters, I’m ripped apart for littering the threads with my nonsense and its old news & using the word women where it should be woman. To that I would repeat what I said prior, I don’t care not have I any time to spear to smack talk and get into petty little arguments on subjects that are non starters with people of no importance (Trolls), where there are more major issues to address with like minded people. And that’s my rant of the day, sorry Love lol. PS I posted more news today I hope you like.

    @Hello:#251, I’m with you. I was thinking the same thing. Did this person canvassed every award voter? I doubt that, and did that person only asked about watching TYAS? Was TYAS the only movie that those people refused to watch? I’ll watch to the end and then decide.

    #253, why are you afraid to post under a moniker that make some kind of sense? Are you afraid we can see you on our screen at home? Are you always such a little coward cowering behind your screen making stupid remarks? Get a life and stop being a coward, put up or shut up.

    Director Steve McQueen Kicks Off UCLA Anderson New Speaker Series in Partnership with ICON MANN
    =======================================================================

    .
    LOS ANGELES, Feb. 25, 2014 /

    Steve McQueen, award-winning director, producer, screenwriter and video artist, is the featured speaker at the launch of UCLA Anderson School of Management’s new speaker series — Entertainment that Matters on Feb. 28, 2014.
    .
    The purpose of the program, developed by UCLA Anderson’s Center for Management of Enterprise in Media, Entertainment & Sports (MEMES), is to encourage dialogue that can help raise awareness of, educate and influence social change through the power of media, storytelling and celebrity.
    .
    “The critical and commercial success of McQueen’s Oscar-nominated movie, ’12 Years a Slave,’ clearly demonstrates the power of storytelling to educate a new generation about an important period in America that is currently omitted from most school curriculum,” says Sanjay Sood, UCLA Anderson professor of marketing and MEMES faculty director.
    .
    McQueen has been working on an initiative to make “12 Years a Slave” required reading in public high schools. His efforts have been realized with the recent approval of the National Schools Boards Association (NSBA) initiative to make the book, film and study guide available to schools nationwide.
    In January, McQueen was asked and graciously accepted the honor to be one of ICON MANN’s 28 MEN OF CHANGE. The mission of the organization is to positively change the global dialogue surrounding the Diaspora of Black Men.
    .
    “Throughout the promotion of ’12 Years a Slave,’ Steve’s success matrix was clear — that when Solomon Northup’s story is required reading in U.S. schools, he would be pleased,” says Tamara N. Houston, ICON MANN founder and partner. “The network of ICON MANN could not agree more, and we are pleased to be in partnership with UCLA Anderson, supporting this ‘Entertainment That Matters’ event.”
    Darnell Hunt, professor of sociology and director of UCLA’s Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies, will conduct the interview with McQueen, followed by a discussion with education influencers.
    .
    For additional information on the Entertainment That Matters event, visit the MEMES website, or contact Karen Williams, MEMES executive director, at 310.825.7211. The next Entertainment that Matters event is scheduled to feature Emmy Award-winning Producer Mark Burnett.

    On the Record With … Steve McQueen
    ===============================
    The director of 12 Years A Slave is passionate about preserving our history and proves that excellence is colorblind.
    .
    By Steve McQueen, as told to Amy Elisa Keith Posted: 02/25/2014 12:00 AM EST
    .
    When I was growing up we didn’t have Black History Month. It was something that I found out about when I was studying film at New York University. In England, the Black history education was very, very poor. When I was growing up, you were introduced to it through Roots, for example. I was 7 years old when it came out in 1977 and it was a sort of tidal wave that happened in Britain. It’s one of the most revered television movies ever. Being 7 years old and being introduced to the history was very important in my upbringing.
    .
    Now in Britain that has been rectified. There is a Black History Month in February and kids are much more clued in about an aspect of the history, which was slavery. What’s been so interesting about 12 Years a Slave is the amount of government support from Britain that I’ve had in trying to get this book into schools. It’s been amazing. Unfortunately, no one has reached out to me in the U.S. to get the book in schools. Nevertheless, there have been entrepreneurs and talented people who are all trying to make inroads and impressions into that to get the book in schools in the US.
    .
    Personally, I say 14 years old is a good age to read this book. I think back to where I was in my life when I was 13 and this book would have been important to me. I think that’s the ideal age to introduce the book to kids. 13 or 14 is a critical age. I was in trouble as a young Black man in Britain. I had been marked in a way at school. The school system marked me as a student headed for a career in manual labor, nothing more. What I needed at that time was some idea of perspective of history. Not just of the slave history, because that’s only an aspect of my history and Black people. But I needed a deep understanding of Africa and a deep understanding of the Diaspora. That would have been very encouraging and very inspirational. I hate this word “role model,” but to actually have someone who looks like you and is doing something amazing is inspirational.
    .
    When I was in elementary and high school, the kids who were academically talented were designated for a high-achievers track, but of course there are late developers. They called it “streaming.” Using a running analogy, there are sprinters and some people are middle distance runners who then catch up. That wasn’t taken into account when I was in school. One needs to monitor students over time. I don’t know what the answer is, but all I do know is that one shouldn’t give up on students and dump them in a situation, a road to nowhere, which is what happened to me.
    .
    Thankfully, I was always interested in art and I could always draw as a kid. Art gave me the aspiration, the inquisitiveness and the desire to advance my understanding, to go further than the reach of my own arm. I was lucky. It was part luck, and there’s a part of my being hard-headed because I come from a very hard-headed family. I wouldn’t accept “No.” I got myself to NYU because I wouldn’t accept “No.”
    .
    I was fortunate to grow up in London where race was present, but it wasn’t prevalent. It wasn’t the be all and end all. It was more about if you were cool or not. So I grew up in an environment where there were Iranians, Pakistanis, Greeks, Italians, Polish, West Indian, Africans. All we cared about was football [aka soccer] and having fun and music. As a child, I didn’t have role models, but it had more to do with who I thought was interesting. I remember when I was first introduced to Woody Allen for example. It was amazing. Or Prince or Eddie Murphy. It was so random but it was all about excellence. I was interested in great people doing interesting stuff. In some ways that was the inspiration. Race didn’t matter. It was more about what you do rather than who you are.
    .
    What’s interesting, for me at least, is when I’m in America that race becomes this huge thing. It’s not to say that race is not a big issue in Europe; far from it. But what I mean is I don’t care about race. I honestly don’t. What I care about is doing the best I can. Often times you are confronted by how people look at you and how they perceive you and then one has to deal with that. I’m a human being, I’m part of the human race, within that I’m just interested in doing the best I can and trying to be excellent in what I do. I will not allow anything to go out that I do which is not up to par. For me it has to be brilliant. If it’s not brilliant there is no point in doing it. It has to be brilliant. That’s what I’m about. End of story.
    .
    Fresh off of a Golden Globe awards win, Steve McQueen is the British artist and filmmaker behind the film ”12 Years a Slave. He is also the genius behind the 2008 film Hunger and Shame in 2011. One of his passion projects is to see the original book by Solomon Northup be required reading for school children in America and the UK.

    Local Sound Man Wins Accolades for ’12 Years a Slave’
    =============================================
    .
    Updated: Feb 26, 2014 4:15 AM
    .
    NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) – A local man who mixed the sound in one of biggest movies of the year recently earned a spot on the red carpet. Jon Vogl was nominated for a Golden Reel Award for his work on “12 Years a Slave.” It’s one of Hollywood’s biggest honors in sound, and another honor for Hollywood South.

    The dramatic sounds you hear in the movie were mixed and created here in New Orleans inside Second Line Stages on Constance Street.

    “We have to isolate ourselves in here from any noise that’s happening outside,” Vogl said.

    He edits and mixes in a state-of-the-art, sound-proof theatre similar to the ones where movie-goers watch the hottest films.

    “We built it certified by Dolby to have the standards of any theatre in the country. Anything we play back in here will sound accurate and the same when it’s played in another theatre,” Vogl said.

    The ceiling hangs from springs, and the walls are rigid fiberglass covered with cloth. The room helped him bring amazing detail to the post production sound editing in “12 Years a Slave.”

    “It starts out when they hand over the film to us in the raw form,” Vogl said. “We start plotting out where footsteps occur and where the bugs will be needed, and then we assign those tasks to individual editors and field recordists,” he said.

    Vogl said his teams will go out to the plantations and record the wind whispering through the leaves and the insects chirping.

    At times, the dialogue has to be re-cut and synced to the film. That happens in an ADA recording room off the theatre.

    “This is the boom stand,” Vogl said, walking into the small room. “We’ll open it up and hang a mike, and the talent will stand right here. You can look at the film and you can hear comments from the producers over there.”

    It was in this room that actress Quvenzhané Wallis tracked her audio for the Masarati commercial that ran during the Super Bowl. Vogl deals with Hollywood types all the time, and sometimes he turns into one. He was on the red carpet for the Motion Pictures Sound Editors Golden Reel Awards.

    He was nominated for “12 Years a Slave,” but the movie “Gravity” won in his category. Just the nomination for Vogl gives Hollywood South more props.

    Vogl Started in L.A. but moved to New Orleans for opportunity a few years ago. He met and married a Marksville native and it sounds like he has settled in for the long haul.

    “I I’m glad to have had apart in this film,” he said.

    @Phool.:#254, My friend, I cannot add anything to your post, you said it all. Brad and Angie are a force to be admired. I love how Angie is so far above the other much older women in Hollywood. She is in her bed thinking how she can be of service to others, instead of what I’m I going to wear so I’m talked about as the most beautiful woman in the entire world and what bikini I can wear so people with believe I still have the most banging body, Angie goes about her business saying, I m who I am take me or leave me, I don’t care. I believe that’s why Brad loves her so much, she does not play games.

    Phool, you warned the fans before you left yesterday, to shut the windows because you felt the meltdown was about to begin, and you were so right. My friend, the only thing I have to say, is start watching out for viruses the closer it gets to Sunday. It’s so sad to see so many people who are in need of intervention using their computer to show that their really are CREATURES, sub humans walking among us.

    Discussion on Ending and Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict Situations

    Remarks
    John Kerry
    Secretary of State
    Catherine M. Russell
    Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues
    Benjamin Franklin Room
    Washington, DC
    February 25, 2014

    SECRETARY KERRY: Good afternoon, everybody. Thank you very, very much for joining us here. We’re really honoured to have all of you.
    But also, I’m privileged to have Foreign Secretary William Hague here today. He has really been the leader on this issue, not just a leader, but the leader. And I was privileged to be with him in London – as a matter of fact, today is the anniversary of my leaving on my first trip as Secretary of State, and my first stop was in London, where I received a magnificent naval sword given to me by the Secretary, which I keep down in my office to manage the staff with. (Laughter.) And the – now some 350,000 miles later, the secretary’s coming back to visit us here, and we’re very honoured to have him here. And I’m delighted to take part with him in this initiative and in these initiatives that we’re engaged in to deal with the problem of sexual violence in conflict.
    Let me just say at the outset – and I think William wants to join me in saying a word in a few moments when I introduce him – we are all watching – and not just watching, but deeply engaged in trying to help this extraordinary transition that is taking place in Ukraine. And both of us are committed to doing our part to support the efforts of people in Ukraine who have spoken out on their own with passion for their ability to have pluralistic, democratic future.
    This is not a zero-sum game. It is not a West versus East. It should not be. It is not a Russia or the United States or other choices. This is about the people of Ukraine and Ukrainians making their choice about their future. And we want to work with Russia, with other countries, with everybody available to make sure this is peaceful from this day forward, because obviously the terrible violence that took place in the Maidan was a shock to everybody in the world. So we’re committed to that effort and we hope everybody else will be as committed as we are.
    Before I say any further words about this, I might just to ask William if he wants to say a couple words about Ukraine also, and then we’ll come back.
    .
    FOREIGN SECRETARY HAGUE: Well, thank you very much, indeed, John. And thank you all for joining us here today. And it is a great pleasure to be here, as always, with Secretary Kerry. It is, indeed – I had forgotten it was a year today since you came to London on your first visit, and I gave you a sword with which you manage your staff. You gave me some cowboy boots – (laughter) – with which I manage my staff. (Laughter.) So this was a very good reciprocal gift.
    And we’ve had some very good talks today, and we will come in a moment to this subject, which I feel very passionately about and on which we are solidly committed to work together over the coming years between the United Kingdom and the United States.
    But as Secretary Kerry has just said, we are both not only witnessing but actively speaking to those who’ve taken part in the – this extraordinary transition, as he has said, in Ukraine. I think we’re clear from our talks today that we see this in exactly the same way. This is about the rights of a free people, a free, democratic Ukraine to make their own decisions.
    And we don’t see it in a zero-sum way in international affairs. Our national interests are in the people of Ukraine being able to make their own decisions about their future. And so we encourage them to form an inclusive government that enables a new political consensus to take shape in their country, to change a political culture, where corruption has been pervasive, to hold free elections, as they have decided in May, that are fair to everyone in their country.
    It is urgent to prepare financial support, but urgent also that they are – they prepare themselves to meet the necessary conditions for that financial support. And we’ve discussed some of the potential details of that today. I will have meetings with the International Monetary Fund here in Washington tomorrow. And we’ve both had discussions with the foreign minister of Russia, Foreign Minister Lavrov, over recent days about this, seeking to work with Russia on this subject. So I welcome the opportunity to have discussions about this and many other issues with Secretary Kerry today.
    But of course, we want to go on to the subject of today’s meeting, and I look forward to our discussion about that. Thank you, John.
    .
    SECRETARY KERRY: Thank you, William, very, very much.
    Turning to the subject of today’s meeting, there’s really no way to adequately describe the depths of depravity and the extraordinary violence of rape as a tool of war, as violence against women as a tool of intimidation, coercion, submission, and power. And I think that those of us who have known about this for a long time are disturbed by the levels at which this is used as exactly that kind of tool in too many parts of the world.
    .
    I know William, who I said is the leader, he has traveled extensively, he’s been to Darfur, he’s been to Goma, he’s seen hospitals in which women are laid out on gurneys telling stories of having been raped like animals, and he feels this issue passionately. I attended a conference with him in London that he organized with the G-8 when we were there, and we were joined by a terrific advocate on this, Angelina Jolie, who eloquently spoke of what is happening in so many places.
    .
    This is an issue that I really became aware of, actually, here in our country – not in that form, obviously, but I was a prosecutor, and I started the first rape counselling/victim witness assistance program in our county back in the late-1970s, and nobody had heard of it. Nobody knew what it was – what victim witness meant or how you deal with this. And subsequently in the Senate I was proud to join then-Senator Joe Biden in the passage of the Violence Against Women Act, which he authored, and after that was very pleased to bring the International Violence Against Women Act before the – the treaty before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and ultimately through the Senate.
    .
    So I have seen this also, personally, in ways around the world in too many places of conflict. And today, we’re making certain something additional; even though we’ve been aware of it, we haven’t sent yet an embassy-wide message, which I am sending today, that no one, and I mean no one at the highest level of military or governance, who has presided over or engaged in or knew of or conducted these kinds of attacks, is ever going to receive a visa to travel into the United States of America from this day forward. We’re not going to allow that. (Applause.) And every embassy will engage – every embassy and post will be alert to this and to report any of these kinds of incidences, but most importantly there has to be a price attached, and that’s one of the things we need to do.
    The way we will make a difference on this issue is, frankly, by heeding the example of people who’ve gone before us who broke the back of slavery and other oppressive acts that were being applied to the life of people in various times in history. William Wilberforce, historic figure in Great Britain, stood up against slavery and set an example for people elsewhere. And it was that example that helped us ultimately to break the back of Jim Crow in the United States when people learned that you needed to put yourselves on the line, and you needed to take risks as a matter of moral conscience in order to be able to make the difference.
    .
    That’s really what we’re going to have to summon here, is that kind of moral commitment to fighting back against and holding accountable those people who engage in these kinds of activities on a global basis. So as I said earlier, there is no more committed leader globally than my colleague William Hague, and we’re honoured – honoured to have here today the UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General Zainab Bangura. I’m very, very grateful for her being here today. Particularly grateful to Cathy Russell who is our Assistant Secretary for Global Women’s – Special Representative for Global Women’s Affairs who has helped put this together. And I appreciate Anne Richard who is here, and as our assistant secretary, she has played a key role in all of this and decided not to add numbers to our panel, but we’re deeply appreciative to her commitment and leadership for this. And I’m so honored that Katharine Weymouth has taken time off from The Washington Post’s duties to come over here today to actually be the host of the panel, which I will give up momentarily.
    But I do want to introduce my good colleague, about whom I’ve said a fair amount in terms of his leadership on this, but we’re really happy to have him here today to take part in this event. William, thank you. (Applause.)
    .
    FOREIGN SECRETARY HAGUE: Thank you very much, John. Thank you very much, and I applaud the commitment of Secretary Kerry and of the United States of America on this subject. I believe that the sort of measure that he just announced, that clarity and clear measure on visas for anyone wishing to enter the United States, is exactly the sort of thing that governments should be doing all over the world as we bring our various powers together in order to tackle this subject.
    .
    And as you’ve heard it’s a subject I feel very strongly about that started for me back in – about eight years ago visiting Darfur and visiting camps of displaced people and hearing about how they were raped every time they went out for firewood. And I’ve seen many other examples around the world, now. And then when Angelina Jolie made her film, The Land of Blood and Honey, about events in Bosnia in the 1990s, she and I decided to create the campaign – the Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict campaign. It is a subject we cannot and should not ignore, because now we know about it. We now know things that were previously – because they were out of sight of most people in the world, were out of mind as well.
    .
    But now the extent of warzone rape has been documented in Bosnia, in Colombia, in Guatemala, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in Liberia, in many continents of the world. And what would it say about our societies and our civilizations if we knew those things and chose to do nothing about it? It’s a moral responsibility, but it’s also about preventing conflict, about helping communities to work together after conflict that is a fundamental part of conflict prevention, as well as a crucial moral cause of our times. And great work has been done on this subject by people like Zainab Bangura at the UN and by NGOs all over the world.
    .
    But I felt two years ago that what had been missing from this was some of the major governments of the world really throwing their weight behind it. And so I decided to throw the weight of the United Kingdom behind – we have one of the biggest diplomatic networks in the world. We have one of the biggest development budgets in the world. We are a country, particularly it’s when we work – when we work with the United States and others, that can move the dial in international affairs. And so we are setting out to create international action on this, and we have made agreements with the G8 foreign ministers that Secretary Kerry took part in last April. I took it to the UN Security Council in June, and we strengthened the tools available to the United Nations. And we held a meeting at the General Assembly last year, where now 140 countries in the world, as a result of that, have signed my declaration on ending sexual violence.
    .
    I’m going to host in London in June a global summit on this issue, which will be like no summit ever before. It is going to go on around the clock, around the world. It is going to be open to the public. It is going to communicate digitally with people in every continent of the world. We are going to involve militaries, judiciaries. We’re going to ask governments to take practical steps to end sexual violence, to do the sort of thing we’ve done now of deploying teams of experts to areas that help to gather the evidence and make sure prosecutions can take place. And we’re going to do even more than that. We are going to set about changing global attitudes on this subject so that the stigma that has always been attached to the victims to the victims of these crimes is attached to the perpetrator instead.
    It is an ambitious agenda, but it really can be done. And I know there are sometimes quiet cynics who say, “Well, isn’t this just part of war?” Well, we have rules of even war in other respects. We have Geneva conventions about the treatment of prisoners of war. We have conventions and rules about subjects from landmines to cluster munitions. We need to have accepted rules on this subject as well. And there are people who say, “Well, it’s too big and too difficult a subject to do anything about,” or they perhaps think that even if they don’t say it. But no campaign would ever have succeeded against slavery or against racial discrimination or anything else if anybody started out with that thought in their minds that it was impossible.
    And so it is now possible to do something on this subject to take practical actions at many levels and to change the entire global attitude on this subject, and our objective should be nothing less than that. And in that spirit, and I am waging this campaign, and I look forward to, without saying anything more at this point, to hearing your views and questions about that. Thank you very much indeed. (Applause.)
    .
    MS. WEYMOUTH: Thank you both, Secretary Hague and Foreign – I’m sorry, Secretary Hague and Secretary Kerry.
    Let me start with you, Special Representative Bangura. Secretary Hague referred to the stigma of women who are abused sexually during conflict and seeking to remove that stigma and put that stigma on the perpetrator, something that we would all like to see, but we know that there are strong cultural pulls. In many cultures, women don’t want to report rapes, they don’t want to get an abortion, they’re forced to marry the rapist. Can you talk a little bit about what you are doing about those issues and what you think that the governments can do about those issues?
    .
    MS. BANGURA: Thank you very much. And I have to congratulate the two great gentlemen. And I think when I took this job, the first thing the Secretary-General said to me, “If you want to succeed, you have to have men on your side.” So I can say in the United Nations, I’m the luckiest woman, because at least I have men who have stood up and say, we will support you. That is very important.
    What we have been able to do with the support of the United States and the United Kingdom, like the foreign secretary said, we’ve got the global legal framework. By various resolutions in the Security Council, we’ve got all the tools. And the challenge is why, the foreign secretaries (inaudible) conference, is actually how do we make sure at the national level the governments take ownership and responsibility and implement the decision that we have agreed at the United Nations? And I think we have succeeded within the last one year. The momentum developed by the initiative launch by foreign secretary, which saw it at the G8’s – the foreign ministers at the G8 actually adopted a declaration, and there are now 140 countries.
    .
    So the political momentum has been created, which has helped us at a national level to have firm commitment. We have signed a joint framework with the DRC, with (inaudible). When I visited DRC for the first time, visited together with Foreign Secretary Hague, and were able to see President Kabila. I think with the pressure that we’ve been able to put on those leaders, we’ve got firm political commitment from them in writing. We’re working now with a team of experts in my office to ensure that we build their capacity, we have this commitment interpreted into firm, concrete action at the national level. And I think that’s where the next phase of this mandate is. So I can tell you that we have done – been very extremely successful with the DRC, with Somalia, even with the Central Africa. Now with Resolution 2106, we’re putting it as part of peace agreements in mediation, so it’s also been included in most of the negotiations that are going in peace agreement – is ceasefire violation.
    So I think we’ve done tremendously well, and I think it’s making sure that we implement it on the ground at the national level where the crimes are being committed. So I want to congratulate you, Secretary of State Hague and Kerry with this decision you’ve taken now with making so people who commit this crime are not given visa. These are all part of the tools and the support we need, because once we’re able to identify the people, we need to name and shame them. We need to let them understand that wherever they are, whoever they are, we will go after them and we’ll get them.
    .
    MS. WEYMOUTH: So let me pick up on that. Secretary Kerry, you’ve just announced this new rule regarding visas, which implies that these are people who have been found to have committed crimes. We know that one of the challenges is getting the information out. Taking the crisis that’s happening right now on the ground in Syria, we know we’re having trouble getting reports, that we don’t have firm reports, we know abuse is happening. What is the role of the U.S. Government or the British Government or any government during a conflict like that?
    .
    SECRETARY KERRY: Well, I think there are several roles. One is – first of all, our first role now, which we’re working on, is really to create a greater awareness and to have more people in the world, more governments particularly, recognize their responsibility. You’ve got to create accountability. If you have impunity, it’s very difficult to make progress in this. So our response – I mean, our – hopefully our collective leadership can bring governments to hold people accountable.
    You need a massive education effort. You’ve got to go out and people have to be aware that this is something you can – I’m not going to tell you you can wipe it out and prevent it altogether. But boy, can you create a different attitude in people about the accountability, the hierarchy, the consequences. And in organized kinds of campaigns, like a place in Syria, where you have an army and you’ve got greater capacity to have a discipline within the ranks, you can make a difference.
    In some places in the world today, you don’t have that. You have young kids carrying guns, you have 16, 17, 18-year-olds, 12-year-olds in some cases. And to some degree, there’s a cultural attitude that encourages that kind of behavior as – literally as an instrument of winning and of intimidating people. In those cases, it’s going to take longer, but we can make a difference.
    I’ll give you an example. In the Great Lakes region, we have just – in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where M23 was active, in the Kampala Accord, which Special Envoy Russ Feingold and Mary Robinson from the United Nations and others were engaged in helping to negotiate, we have a section in there that specifically talks about accountability and prevention of rape as a tool of – and holding people accountable in M23 for these acts.
    So that accountability starts to become known. And as a consequence of that, you have some measure of deterrence. I can’t tell you how much yet, but the key is eliminating impunity, educating people ahead of time, having consequences up and down the chain.
    .
    MS. WEYMOUTH: Thank you. Did you want to add something?
    .
    FOREIGN SECRETARY HAGUE: And just to add to what Secretary Kerry has said as an example to that, the UK in the Syria conflict has trained human rights activists to document such crimes and to gather evidence of such crimes. I mentioned earlier we have created a team – I’ve created a team of 70 experts. These are doctors, forensic experts, gender-based violence experts. Some of them have deployed to the Syrian border, again, to help the gathering of evidence so that one day prosecutions can take place and people can start to become aware of that.
    And in the decision we took recently to bring into the United Kingdom some of the Syrian refugees, a small number relative to the total of course, but to be able to bring some of them into the United Kingdom, we are giving priority to those who have been vulnerable to violence, including sexual violence. And then we will also be able to arrange medical care for them.
    So there is a whole string of things that countries can do. Even as we try now and when we haven’t succeeded in resolving the conflict and ending the conflict, which is our overriding priority, there are things we can do in the meantime to try to help people who are victims of sexual violence in a conflict such as Syria now.
    .
    AMBASSADOR RUSSELL: — if you look at World War I, I think then five percent of the casualties were people who were civilians. And now, when you look at conflicts, we’re up to 90 percent of the casualties are civilians. And so we’re dealing with situations that are so different from situations that we’ve seen in the past. And of course, women and children are almost always more likely to be victims in these conflicts.
    And so we’ve seen certainly situations where both secretaries described, where women are intentionally victims and where rape is used a strategic decision on the part of commanders to really go in and either try to move communities out, try to pillage, try to terrorize, try to brutalize communities. And I think we’re all trying to adjust to how to deal with that. I think the biggest challenge we all are facing is that a lot of these commanders who do this, individual soldiers, are doing it with just unbelievable impunity. And we’re all struggling to address that.
    .
    And I think the biggest challenge is we can – and the United States does this, the UK does this, we provide a lot of services for victims. But we’re all interested in figuring how to avoid it in the first place. And I think one of the challenges is trying to make sure that people understand that there will be consequences for this.
    .
    One of the things that we’ve come up or that we’re supporting are mobile courts that have been very effective in the DRC. Because now there have been prosecutions in The Hague, which have been effective, but they’re – they take a long time to get done and we do very few of them just because of the nature of the tribunals for Rwanda cases, Yugoslavia cases. But for these DRC cases, we have judges or Congolese prosecutors, judges who go out and they travel around, and they hear the cases in the communities. It takes two weeks for a case to be heard, and justice is meted out immediately. People see the justice happen in front of them. People who have committed these cases, who never believed they would be prosecuted, are prosecuted.
    That sort of thing makes a difference. It builds up the sort of trust in the judicial system. It builds up the infrastructure, so there is justice and there’s a possibility that there will be kind of a judicial system maybe that will work in the future. And I think those are the sorts of things that ultimately will have some impact.
    .
    And I think what we’re looking to do is to find places where we can sort of build up these societies so that they’ll have sort of rule of law, respect for law, so that ultimately we won’t be in a situation where we’re trying to deal with survivors, deal with services for survivors, but we’re having a place where they respect the rule of law and we don’t have these situations in the first place.
    .
    MS. WEYMOUTH: And is there a difference in the way we ought to address – there’s the violence that happens during a conflict and then there’s the violence that happens post-conflict. We know in Darfur some of the women were raped going to get firewood and water from refugee camps. Is there a difference in the way that we ought to address those?
    .
    AMBASSADOR RUSSELL: Well, I mean, I would just say if you don’t address it during the conflict, there is a lack of respect for law and there is an increase in violence. I mean, we see it in Sierra Leone where you – where that – you have that brutality. When the conflict is over, it continues.
    MS. WEYMOUTH: Yeah.
    AMBASSADOR RUSSELL: And if it’s not dealt with and there aren’t sort of some services built up and there aren’t punishments, then it just continues into the post-conflict area, post-conflict.
    MS. WEYMOUTH: Did you want to add to that?
    MS. BANGURA: Thank you very much. Thank you very much. I think the challenges are the same, whether in conflict or post-conflict. Today as we speak, we have 50,000 women in Bosnia that were raped during the conflicts in Bosnia. And if you don’t deal with them, there is a problem that reconciliation becomes very difficult. But I think the most challenging, it’s that these issues are integrated into communities when not addressed.
    MS. WEYMOUTH: Yeah, yeah.
    MS. BANGURA: We have the incident of Liberia today as I speak to you. My youngest victim is from Liberia, three months old. And a report was done by Save The Children: 90 percent of those who were sexually abused were children. So once you don’t address it during a conflict, it gets integrated into community life. It becomes a much bigger problem for you to deal with.
    MS. WEYMOUTH: And apart from governments, what is the role that men can play? I mean men in the communities. Because we’re talking about women being abused here, but we know men and boys are also abused in smaller numbers, but they are. But apart from those victims, what is the role of men in these communities?
    MS. BANGURA: I think the important issue is that most of this community live under traditional rules and regulation. You have traditional leaders who are controlled by men religious leaders. So they are the gatekeepers, we call them. So they are the one who normally control these communities and they give the instructions. I mean, in the case of Libya, for example, we have – a religious leader gave a fatwa that when you rape somebody, you are forced to marry the perpetrator. So because the men make the laws and because this is a crime that is commanded –
    MS. WEYMOUTH: Right.
    MS. BANGURA: — it is important that you give the command to stop it.
    MS. WEYMOUTH: Yes.
    MS. BANGURA: So the only people who can give the command to stop it are the men. So they have a very critical role to play.
    MS. WEYMOUTH: And there are some examples, are there not, of conflicts that did not have sexual and violence as a hallmark?
    MS. BANGURA: Well, very few, if there’s any –
    MS. WEYMOUTH: But they’re – yeah.
    MS. BANGURA: — because all the conflicts we are dealing with you, you might not be able to see it or read it, but when you go deeper and you look for it, you find out that sexual violence has taken place. And that’s a surprise thing we get with now, because once you get involved in it and you start talking, you start looking deeper into it. And I think the problem is because of the stigma of a culture of silence and the stigma associated with it. So there’s a reluctance for people to report and to deal with it if they don’t have the support and the support is coming.
    .
    MS. WEYMOUTH: Secretary Hague, you mentioned the team of experts that you have built in the UK. Can you talk a little bit about the work that they’ve done and the successes they’ve had?
    .
    FOREIGN SECRETARY HAGUE: Well, they are – as I say, in the UK we’ve assembled a team of more than 70 experts. We will send them on – we will deploy them to half a dozen different places in the course of this year. And then they have the necessary skills to support local organizations and local administrations in the gathering of evidence. Because here, the crucial thing is the shattering of impunity. Now, that is what we have to achieve. That is in line with Secretary Kerry’s remarks, in line with what Zainab Bangura has just been saying. This is the crucial ingredient so that people know they will not get away with it.
    And for that, you need the experts, you need the lawyers, you need the doctors, you need the forensic experts. And we need something now that I hope we can add to this, which is agreed international standards for the investigation and documentation of these crimes so that information can be shared, so that the gathering of evidence is of sufficient quality.
    And one of my objectives for the global summit in June is for us to agree an international protocol on the documentation and investigation of such crimes so that such evidence can be more easily shared and used all over the world. It won’t be a new body of international law, but it will be an agreed way of trying to implement the laws that exist against these crimes. So that is the way we’re going to follow up the creation of the team of experts.
    .
    MS. WEYMOUTH: So at your summit in June, part of the role will be to get the world’s attention to this issue?
    FOREIGN SECRETARY HAGUE: It is. We have to get the world – to change the attitude, to change the stigma in every part of the world, we have to get the world’s attention. And we are increasingly getting the world’s attention, but I hope it will be another big step forward in that when we hold the global summit in June.
    But it won’t just be about attention. It will be about agreeing the international protocol. It will be asking the countries involved to build this into their military training, into the – I’ve just been to Colombia last week where many crimes of sexual violence have taken place during the decades of conflict in Colombia. And the defense ministry in Colombia is now adopting a protocol on sexual violence into its military training so that exactly what Zainab has been saying to armies all over the world is – will happen then. And she makes quite a forceful job of it when she tells them that they must not do these things anymore.
    So that we’ll be asking armies, we’ll be asking judiciaries to build this into their thinking. So that the summit is about changing global attitudes, but it’s also about a whole set of practical actions, some of which we can take internationally and some of which we need national governments to take.
    .
    MS. WEYMOUTH: Special Representative Bangura, we were talking outside about your first visit to the United States. Can you mention that?
    MS. BANGURA: I started – as you know, I started my career as a human rights activist, as a women’s rights activist, but I actually got inspired by the visits I made in the United States as the program International Visitors Program. And I think – I had studied political science at the university – (cheers and applause). I had studied political science at the university, but I was not in a democratic state. At this time, we had a military government in Sierra Leone. So for about two to three decades, we had had continuously one (inaudible) military government, and then I was invited to participate in this program.
    At the end of the program, I made a decision. I said I think the future of my country is actually being a democratic state. I went to the American Embassy on my return to brief the ambassador, and I said to her I want to work on democracy. She looked at me and she said, “Are you crazy?” (Laughter.) Yeah. I said, “No, I will.” And so that’s how I started. I got my first grant from the United States, $25,000, and I started treating women in the American Embassy. They provided a venue for me. And that’s how we took the women to the streets to fight for democracy.
    So after three decades, we won. We became a democratic state. Today, we’ve had all our three elections, successive elections, and it’s one of the fast-growing economies in the world. So I think that influence – influence greatly and greatly help me and my country. So I was never the same person. I quitted my job as an insurance executive and that’s it. (Laughter.)
    .
    AMBASSADOR RUSSELL: So see where this can lead you?
    MS. BANGURA: For the rest of my life, I’m working on democracy and human rights.
    MS. WEYMOUTH: You’ve accomplished great things since then. (Applause.) We have about five minutes left. Secretary Kerry, you wrote in an op-ed on International Women’s Day – and I love this as a woman – “No country can get ahead if it leaves half of its people behind.” So there is education, there is enforcement. Do you think it makes a difference to have women in the military creating policy, in positions of government, in addition to those measures?
    SECRETARY KERRY: Oh, sure. I mean, absolutely, of course it does. When I came to the United States Senate, there was one woman. And I watched this transition. I think we got up to 20-something, whatever the number was. Extraordinary, extraordinary difference to the quality of our caucuses, to the quality of debate, to the points of view that were brought forward. I mean, it’s hard for me to imagine how it was the way it was for as long as it was, but it’s hard for a lot of people to imagine it the way it is today, too.
    We’ve got a long way to go. We still have a glass ceiling in the United States. And if we still have a glass ceiling on something as straightforward as employment and equal jobs, equal pay for that job, imagine the sort of push it’s going to take to get people to deal with something they’re as uneasy with as sex and sexual violence. A lot of people don’t understand that rape is used as a tool in war. Many people say, well, no, it’s just – it happens or people dismiss it. You can’t. We can’t allow people to do that.
    And so women being a part of this dialogue at the highest levels will help bring a level of both personal experience and credibility and reality to the debate that, for better or worse, as hard as men try to or want to, is always going to be hard for them to be able to do. So it makes all the difference in the world. And I think the key here, though, remains getting people to understand what is happening, how impactful it is on a society, and how crushing it is to the capacity of that society to ever sort of break out and be culturally whole and come into modernity.
    And so there’s a big education role that has to take place now to get people to understand, number one, that this is an issue worth caring about; and then, to jump from the caring about it to what do you actually do to make a difference. And if you don’t create accountability up and down the chain, you won’t make that difference. So we have to keep pushing on the education front. We have to keep pushing on the governance regulatory enforcement front. And that’s how, ultimately, we’re going to make a difference.
    But I think one of the biggest ways to make a difference is holding people accountable in these very visible conflicts now, like Syria or like the Central African Republic or a number of other places. We do that; that’s going to do more to send a message than any other single thing, probably.
    .
    FOREIGN SECRETARY HAGUE: And just to add a final word from me on that, this is an immensely important subject in itself, and we’ve all said how crucial it is, but it is a part of an even bigger picture relevant to your question. And I will argue in a speech I’ll make in a few hours’ time in Georgetown that the even bigger picture is that the great strategic prize of the 21st century is the full economic and social and economic empowerment of women everywhere. And that has got to be our goal. (Applause.)
    MS. WEYMOUTH: I think we can all applaud that. (Applause.) Thank you all so much.
    SECRETARY KERRY: On that note, folks, I think Katharine has yielded back. Cathy, do you want to wrap it up for us? You’re all set?
    Well, let me just say to everybody I know this is scratching the surface, but it’s clear from Williams’s announcement about this conference that he’s going to have in London and his own speech this afternoon and other efforts that we will continue, we’re going to stay at this. And we’re going to continue to try to create accountability where there isn’t any, end the impunity that as you heard from Cathy and from Zainab, that’s the key here. We have to end the impunity. And that will come when all of you help us to create accountability.
    .
    So thank you all for being here today. Appreciate it. (Applause.)

    The ‘Academy’ story is a sad one if it is true………these people should consider a career change……..HW, which is known as the epicentre of violence in movies is now, that it is a ‘true’ story about Black America…….are suddenly just too squeamish…….oh, my……waving fan at pale face…….I think I have a case of the vapours……..what is this……..nineteenth century England where coquettes must be shielded from harsh life realities…………disgusting. If you are a ‘voter’ it should be compulsory to watch all nom’d films for ‘Oscar’ contenders.

    Someone should ship a box of white sheets to these members……..and this is liberal HW??? I smell a lot of behind the scenes sabotaging ….

    If this turns out to be, in fact, the case…….I will boycott the Oscars for the rest of my life.

    On a more positive note, Brad and Angie are working on an enduring filmography. When you have their power, it is heartwarming to see, once again, their ongoing attempt to make ‘socially important’ message films….the studios love the money generating blockbusters and have zero interest in quality film…………but I see, with Selma, they are not going to get caught with their pants down again…….Brad Pitt has the studios on notice. Look how bloody long a studio sat on Unbroken until someone like Angie went to bat to produce and direct it.

    The cream always rises to the top so here are two people without publicists and all the usual image bending machinations changing it up in HW. This is a lot of fun to watch despite what we know is going on to stunt them…..egos, money changers………talented, smart and purely driven is a huge threat to business as usual.

    All the generations of blacks who lived and died in slavery deserve some recognition. Their lives had value – so I am happy to see films like 12YAS. The human spirit survived in these people even though tihey were subjected to inhuman acts for over 2 hundred years.

    TYAS should win – it is an excellent storytelling and unique that does not romanticize the South nor does it try to ignore blacks during that time. Gravity is a version of Mission to Mars and Red Planet. American Hustle is just another mafia type movie. Both of these movies make me say to Hollwood, you have been there and done that.

    Rose Says:

    @Dawne: Good morning Dawne, my sister in Canada went to see TYAS, she told me most of the people in the theatre were white and only a few black people. We have to call out our People also for not supporting this movie as they should. I remember mentioning here about two months ago my friend telling me that on her job they were talking about TYAS – she said a lot of her co worker had not seen the movie because they were thought it would be too hard to watch. I’m saying if SN lived his life as a slave for 12 years the least we can do is spend less than two hours in a comfortable theatre and watch the movie. All I’m saying is, we have to call out our own People for talking B.S. About this is too hard to watch.

    Ⱦamsin Says:

    So sanctimonious JJ will adopt the “no child pics” policy, which is funny considering how much he’s profited from celebrity children in the past. Does this means he won’t get to describe anyone as “adorable” any more? LOL.

    More importantly, this is a huge financial blow to the unemployed Brand, whose main source of income for the past two years has been parading their kids in a series of photo ops all over the world.

    This must be disheartening news for all pedo loons such as Rosie, who got off on commenting on Zahara’s legs, Maddox’s abs and even called Knox a stud once. I can imagine she’ll be crying in the shower about not seeing those innocent children as often any more. All in all, knowing that perverted loons won’t have access to these pics is definitely a comforting thought for concerned citizens like myself.

    That said, JP trolls’ hypocrisy is astounding. They have a field discussing everything about the kids and dissecting every detail, down to the socks they’re wearing, but of course these pearl clutching demented freeeks claim to be in agreement with the new policy. That’s rich! LOL.

    What Jared isn’t telling though, is that the new California legislation has been in place for several weeks now, where paps can photograph kids so long as they have their parents prior authorization. This means that when the Brand arrived in LA earlier this month, the kids got photographed with their parents’ explicit consent. How can then loons deny that these shameless vvhores exploit their kids?

    Sorry JP trolls, once again, the cat’s out of the bag regarding your filthy idols’ endless greed.

    @just another fan:

    Whatever. No shallow worshipper of the Brand, regardless of race, cares about this movie’s supposed social impact or its content at all. Loons initially care for the possibility of seeing the Ho and her stolen man parade once again down a red carpet. They also care about their idol finally winning an Oscar, so for weeks they’ve hyped his involvement using ridiculous arguments.

    In fact, it doesn’t make a difference to them if McQueen is the first black director to ever win an Oscar, nor do they care that it was his vision, talent and commitment what made a difference. All they care about is seeing the drug addict win an Oscar, stumble his way up the stage, have a moment to himself and steal the director’s credit from him.

    Reality is, had 12YAS been produced by somebody like Oprah, no loon would’ve ever bothered to check it out. In fact The Butler also had a solid, heartwearming tale supported by strong performances and it was a success on all fronts, critically and commercially, but it’s been ignored by loons and those who saw only used it as cannon fodder to make more vicious remarks against her.

    The saddest part is that half of the posters here who worship the Brand are black. I feel sad for these pathetic creatures, whose sense of self-worth is directly associated to how their idols feel or think about their ethnicity. Here’s hoping one day all loons realize that these shallow hos are not role models at all, and that they’ve wasted their lives praising them.

    Interesting seeing the contradictory information regarding TYAS chances of winning BP. I was pretty p*ssed looking at those tweets from Sasha Stone regarding Academy members not doing their basic job by viewing the film but at the same time all of the critics and industry analysts predictions that I have seen, all say that TYAS is the clear favorite to win.

    Also if Selma does begin shooting this year, then Plan B could have 3 major films in production this year. Along with Selma, Blonde and also The Lost City of Z. If this is the case that it will be phenomenal. It could also see films that Brad is connected to being featured heavily in the next 3 consecutive awards seasons including this one.

    Thought you guys would love this perspective re the Oscars. Saw it on a Jamaican newspaper website:
    .
    .
    The Oscars Aren’t The Movie Olympics — They’re Sports Day
    .
    By Kerian King
    .
    A century ago, America’s film industry was like our telecoms industry, a gold rush enabled by exciting technology and unbridled greed. The workers at the bottom — carpenters, electricians, painters — had already unionised. The prospect of the more expensive talent — writers, directors, actors — demanding huge pensions, health benefits and residuals threatened to stem the obscene flow of profits.
    .
    What MGM head Louis B. Mayer and the other movie moguls needed was a way to prevent another union, some kind of pre-emptive organisation that would solve labour disputes internally. Plus, this body could pump out good public relations to counterbalance the scandalous headlines for which the famous were infamous. But how to get the creative egomaniacs to join? What bait would prove irresistible?
    .
    Thus, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was born (named to fake a permanence it has since realised), along with its annual awards ceremony, first held as a private dinner at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in 1929. The presentations lasted all of 15 minutes.
    .
    What began so long ago as a bunch of old, rich white men from California has morphed over the decades into … a bunch of old, rich white men from California. The Los Angeles Times sniffed out almost all of the 6,000 Academy members in 2012, discovering that fully half are over 60, three-quarters are men, and a shocking 94 per cent are white. If you assembled them all in a room today, it would look like the most racist, sexist, parochial organisation in America.
    .
    These are the people who vote on the movies each year. Sorry to ruin the magic, but when a movie gets nominated, it has more to do with idiosyncrasies than excellence. The nominations are occupationally segregated — writers nod writers, editors nod editors, and so on. If you’re an unloved genius (and since geniuses make everyone else look stupid, most are), you can languish without recognition.
    .
    Daring but obscure films get overlooked, because nobody nominates a film they haven’t seen. And biases persist because membership is by invite only, so existing members naturally invite like-minded friends. Good luck, young black women.
    .
    If the Academy Awards really are a backward, haphazard affair, how did it become such a big deal, behind only the Super Bowl in American television viewership? Simple. Because the TV networks and the movie studios are the same companies, with a shared profit motive.
    .
    Fox and 20th Century Fox share a parent. CBS is part of National Amusements Inc, which also controls Paramount. NBC and Universal are sister companies. And ABC, current Oscars telecaster, is housed under The Walt Disney Company. They pull out the stops at the awards so you pull out your wallet at the cineplex.
    .
    As for the global audience, cable TV has proved a far more insidious occupying force than any general’s wet dream, pulsing America’s soft power into every living room.
    .
    The Oscars, far from the movie Olympics they’re inflated to be, are more like your local sports day, with the same ageing guardians, traditional beliefs, and meaningless trophies. It’s a big ad for Hollywood, interrupted by smaller ads. That’s fine for Americans, but you should know better. There’s a whole world of cinema out there, every bit as emotive, explosive and exhilarating as the latest Yankee fare.
    .
    India makes more movies and sells more tickets than the US (easy with 1.2 billion people), and its stars, like Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor, are just as arresting — check out ‘Talaash’.
    .
    Nigerian films dominate the Saharan subcontinent. Japan, Hong Kong, China, Britain, France, Italy and Scandinavia all regularly produce high-quality films, which Hollywood pilfers and remakes, literally banking on your ignorance.
    .
    Best Picture winner ‘The Departed’? That was the kick-ass Hong Kong action flick ‘Infernal Affairs’. Trade in this year’s nominated ‘Captain Phillips’ for the superior Danish suspense, ‘A Hijacking’. And don’t even bother with the pending American version — see the Norwegian thriller ‘Headhunters’ now.
    .
    Film critic Andrew O’Hehir says it best: “Most people … consume a limited range of entertainment products, sold to them by a few large corporations, for the same reason they eat food that makes them sick. It’s all they know about. Beneath an umbrella of unlimited freedom, they are offered a constricted array of predigested selections, and persuaded that they do not like things they have not tried.”
    .
    This Sunday, don’t fall for the ‘American Hustle’. Skip the Oscars, hop on to Netflix, and let ‘The Hunt’ begin.

    There have been stories for MONTHS that some Academy members just won’t watch TYAS because they’re afraid of the violence. Exactly what do they think is in the film? That’s no excuse for not watching a movie when they watch violent crap all the time. As someone else noted – they just don’t want to be confronted with their own racist past – or present. That’s the bottom line.

    groundcontrol Says:

    The new “anti paparrazi” statute has First Amendment implications that will undoubtedly be litigated if it is ever enforced or anyone is convicted of it.
    .
    It does not prevent photographs being taken – regardless of approval or no approval by a parent or guardian. That is an incorrect statement of the law. It is aimed at “intentional harassment” of the child or ward of any person because of that person’s employment.
    .
    Harassment includes conduct that “seriously alarms, annoys, torments or terrorizes” the child and can include recording a child’s image or voice without express consent. That conduct must also be proved to be aimed at a specific child.
    .
    For instance as Brad has requested many times in the past, if the paps keep their distance and not harass the kid then they can do their job.
    .
    Not sure how many parents will want to waste their time in litigation over some pap photos of their children. What people are hoping is that the law has a chilling effect on the paps and that is exactly what the First Amendment is designed to protect against. So competing interests at play. It will be interesting to see how it plays out in the courts.

    I love how Angie is so far above the other much older women in Hollywood.

    ============
    .
    Forget about the much older women Rose she’s already head n’ shoulders above men & women her age group, she has already achieved so much considering she started her humanitarian work in her early 20’s , if you look around know how many in Hollywood do you see following her lead, none, oh yeah there are some who do it for publicity when it suits them cough *Kidman, Clooney, Affleck* but then rest of the year you hear nada, too busy doing Photo Ops at taking kids to Starbucks or throwing Martini parties or playing a rock groupie . I know with time comes experience, but the reality is one has to have the genuine aspiration & dedication to do it, It has to come from within, no one can force you to do good, sincerity shines through regardless. Remembers those Syrian kids that met Angie on Monday, despite having language barriers between them , they were still able to communicate through the language of love, and were able to see through the sincerity of this young woman seeing their unfortunate plight, those kids saw her genuine concern for them, her affection for them. Like the kids said, she has a light within, no matter which way they haters spin it she has been doing good fort 14 plus years, and all we heard is good, not once they people she met said anything else but love & praise for her dedication for them. I remember an old interview and some one mentioned that she was very astute and socially aware of what was going around the world and had the urge to learn, she was only 20 at the time talking about adoption, I can remember reading it and thinking wow how many 20 years olds out there are thinking so deep, you know not many. Now a days you can drag a celebrity to do good deed but it all comes across as fake PR spin because that’s what it is. Look at the prime example Aniston used an 2009 year old video of Dolphins culls and made it all ‘about her & her movie related work’ the ‘I will not go to japan’ jargon and before someone calls her out on it she quickly denies having any part let alone any thoughts on the dolphins, all her PR & her self were worried that Japanese had taken offence for her not visiting their country which she bent over backward denying, so if you believe in a cause why not stick with it but I guess like her fellow friends she is all talk and no substance, oh my bad sorry who am I kidding she cant even talk properly, I should say she is all stutter and no substance Lol, so the moral of Tickys trickeries is if lips are moving she is lying , also people of Haiti are still waiting for Tickys cheque you know the one she promised how many years ago in the TV telethon?
    .

    Thanks for pre warning me about the viruses I forgot considering how hard this week is for the Trolls with all the Brad & Angie positive news, but the Oscars now that’s going to bring out all the crazies from FFkers over here.

    re: “Not sure how many parents will want to waste their time in litigation over some pap photos of their children.”
    “It is aimed at “intentional harassment” of the child or ward of any person because of that person’s employment.
    Harassment includes conduct that “seriously alarms, annoys, torments or terrorizes” the child ”

    the key words are “intentional”, “harassment”, “seriously alarms, annoys, torments or terrorizes”…as you know gc, the burden of proof is always on the plaintiff…and getting a child to testify regarding those factors is really not fair to the child.

    Second shift schools offer hope to young Syrians
    ==========================================
    .
    News Stories, 24 February 2014
    .
    ZGHARTA, Lebanon, UNHCR – “Maliki my love,” sings Omar, a young Syrian boy. It’s a popular song in Arabic, but the declaration of love to his favourite Lebanese teacher, Maliki, is a special addition.
    Children from all over Syria have had their childhoods interrupted by the war in their homeland. For Omar, there’s now a glimmer of hope. The refugee is thriving in a new school in Zgharta, north-Lebanon. The school building is a sanctuary for Omar and his peers – children’s art adorns the walls, and the teachers exude kindness and enthusiasm for their pupils, despite doing double shifts to help cope with the extra demand.
    .
    With nearly 2.5 million registered refugees in the region, nearly half of whom are under 18 years of age, the pressure to provide education opportunities has been immense. In Lebanon, a third of the more than 930,000 Syrian refugees are of primary school age
    .
    While trying to accommodate the new arrivals, local schools reached saturation point and new students were unable to enrol. “I have seen classes in the first shift where there wasn’t space for one more desk,” said Bathoul Ahmed, a UNHCR public information officer.
    .
    A solution, for more than 27,000 Syrian children across Lebanon, has been found in the 74 Lebanese schools now running a second shift to allow more Syrian youngsters to continue with their education. The programme was piloted in the town of Arsal last year and launched across the country in November by the Ministry of Education with the support of UNHCR.
    .
    Its success has been down to the dedication of the Lebanese teachers, like Omar’s favourite, Maliki, who ensure that the Syrian children receive the same level of education as their Lebanese peers. Students even receive Lebanese public school diplomas, ensuring their education is recognised.
    .
    Although he is seven, Omar had never attended primary school before enrolling here in Zgharta. In class, he sits with his older sister, Majed, who watches over him protectively — two of his other siblings are in another class. Studying helps them think of other things than their hometown of Homs, which they fled more than a year ago.
    .
    The fact many Syrian children have been out of education for so long has led to the introduction of accelerated learning programmes for 15,000 students, to try and help them claw back some of the lost years and get their education back on track.
    .
    Schools running two shifts provide classes in Arabic, French, Maths, Science, Civil Society and Geography and take students between the ages of six and 14. After this, it’s hoped that students will be fluent enough in French to enter the less crowded mainstream secondary education system in the country if they wish to continue their studies.
    .
    French language is popular with the children; it is Omar’s favourite subject. He has picked up many words and phrases in the month he has been attending school, even reciting the names of shapes and numbers in front of the class.
    .
    With 270,000 school-aged children registered with UNHCR in Lebanon, there is still work to do. Last month, UNHCR, UNICEF, Save the Children and other partner organisations appealed for £600 million for the “No Lost Generation” campaign to fund the delivery of a strategy for education and protection for children affected by the Syrian conflict.
    .
    Throughout the 2013-14 school year, it is hoped another 10 schools will open, giving an additional 4,000 pupils across Lebanon the chance to resume their education. If it makes them as happy Omar, it is worth the £350 per year that it costs to educate a child.
    .
    “I like school a lot,” he says. Although he loves riding his bike, it cannot compare to classes: “I just wait until 2pm, until I can come to school. I do have some friends – Ali and Ahmed and Hussein – but I prefer the days when I have school.”
    .
    Across the region, meanwhile, more than 550,000 Syrian children are enrolled in learning activities in the main host countries – Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan and Turkey. In Iraqi Kurdistan, the Ministry of Education runs second shifts in seven schools in the city of Erbil.

    Phool, that little Syrian girl looking in Angies face was so cute. I’m guessing she was saying to her self, I’ve never seen eyes like that before or lips like that before.

    Phool, what’s going on, no photo ops of Ticky and tacky together? Is the face still swollen? Omg, can’t wait for Sunday to see Angie and Brad, Pitt porn, burn!!

    Why men should be more like Brad Pitt (and not for the reasons you think)
    ==============================================================
    .
    February 26, 2014 — Updated 1650 GMT

    .
    (CNN) — Oh Brad. So strong. So virile. So capable of wielding a sword in Troy, destroying zombies in World War Z, and seducing leading ladies with just the tilt of a cowboy hat in Thelma and Louise.”He’s a real man’s man,” gushed fiancé and mother of his six-children, Angelia Jolie. But that alone is not what makes him such an important role model for men today, says one of America’s most distinguished feminists and international affairs professors, Anne-Marie Slaughter. It’s his ability to share breadwinning and caregiving with his partner. Which has a lot more to do with empowering women than you might think.
    .
    A real man’s man? Brad Pitt shares the care-giving with Angelina Jolie.
    .
    “Think of Brad Pitt in Troy, he’s a real guy, no question,” said 55-year-old Slaughter, President of the New America Foundation, and former Director of Policy Planning at the U.S. State Department. “But he’s also become a poster child for engaged fatherhood.”
    .
    “When Angelia Jolie is on location, he’s there with their six children, and when Brad Pitt is on location, she’s there with the kids. So that’s really sending a very different signal about what an icon, a movie star, and definitely a leading man is.”
    .
    The conversation has been tilted too far in the direction of women’s issues Anne-Marie Slaughter But Hollywood A-lister Pitt — often seen splashed across celebrity magazines with his brood in tow — nonetheless represents a shift in how society views men, she says.
    And that has big consequences for women.

    Descendants of Solomon Northup live in Rochester
    =======================================

    .
    Updated: Wednesday, February 26 2014, 07:26 AM EST
    .
    Rochester, N.Y. — It’s a film that has created a lot of buzz.
    “12 Years a Slave” is the movie based on the written memoirs by Solomon Northup.
    Northup, a musician and carpenter who lived in Saratoga Springs, was lured, kidnapped and sold into slavery for 12 years in Louisiana.
    “Now here’s one that’s real, it’s very real,” said relative Deirdre Lunzy. “So this is not a Hollywood make up job; this really, really happened.”
    It’s not just a Hollywood movie for siblings Deirdre and Kevin Linzy and Melissa Archie; this is the story of their lineage.
    Northup was their great, great, great grandfather.
    It’s a story that’s stirred lots of emotion.
    “I read the book three times and each time there was a different emotion I felt,” Kevin Linzy said. “The first was anger, the second was sadness and the third was acceptance for what grandpa had gone through. I actually felt like I felt it. There was a scene where he was getting beat that was one of the harshest things for me to watch.”
    “When you see things like that or when I watch things like that, and I’ve watched a lot and have cried, but when you can actually imagine or don’t imagine and know that that’s your blood, that’s someone you’re connected to in some way, it’s emotionally very hard,” said Deirdre Linzy.
    The family said it’s a time in history that’s difficult to imagine, but it’s a story their family cherishes.
    They said they see it as an opportunity to share it with their community and beyond.
    “I feel blessed that they chose to do this movie. Everyone needs to know what we went through as a people and our children need to be educated better,” relative Melissa Archie said. “I would like them to take a sense of well-being, know who you are, know who your family is.”
    The family discovered their ancestry in the late ’90s after a research group in Saratoga Springs notified one of their aunts.
    The siblings said there’s a hope that learning from ones past can lead to change in ones future.
    It’s a message they said they hope the black community hears loud and clear.
    “You can do anything. Anything is possible if you have the will. You can do anything,” said Deirdre Linzy. “So all this fighting and killing and territorial thing for what, a piece of property or a pair of shoes, a sneaker or a ring? Think first, our ancestors, what they did, what they went through so that we could have these freedoms. It’s amazing.”
    Overall, the family said the movie is a great, accurate depiction of Northup’s story.
    The film is up for nine Oscar awards, including best picture.
    The Oscars air Sunday on 13WHAM.

    I think it comes to an era that GG, CCA, BAFTA and PGA have more credibility than Oscar. So if you want to win Oscar, the movies can’t be too violent, too sad, too controversial, too provocative.

    Hi Dawne,
    re: “. If you are a ‘voter’ it should be compulsory to watch all nom’d films for ‘Oscar’ contenders.”
    from another perspective…
    1. how can you make it compulsory when voters don’t even vote for the US Presidency during election years once every four years? 2008 stats showed that US VEP (voting-eligible population) was about 62.2%. and 2. how does the Academy monitor that?…the logistics are unfathomable…hidden cameras in their homes, monitors on their tv screens?
    3. To survive one must have trust in any system or organization which are made up of many trustworthy and untrustworthy individuals …in some cases, you shouldn’t even trust your health insurance…
    4. moreover, there are very few totally fair systems in life…the only alternative is don’t take it so seriously LOL.
    5. The outcome of the Oscars is definitely on the low end of what should be taken seriously plus as outsiders “we” have no control over it…moreover, does everyone honestly vote for every city, county, state, federal, union, stock holder et al election LOL.
    6. The Oscars voting is also a specific industry privileged voting right among peers, not the public’s choice…depending on their specialty members see, judge and vote from a different perspective than the unknowing public and they have a right to do so e.g. a director sees and votes from a directors POV, not an actors POV.

    I doubt the whole thing will ever get to a litigation state. Basically these celebs are trying to force the ratzi to play by their rules – and play nicely while doing so. What the ratzi ought to start doing is whistle-blowing on all the celebs who call them to take pix or the ones who deliberately take their kid theme parks, pumpkin patches, local parks, soccer games\practice, etc., when they KNOW the ratzi are following them. As soon as these people have something to sell they drag themselves – or their ir kids out for a photo op. Sites like x17, INF, Splash, etc., ought to just start posting in the photo info that they received an “anonymous” phone call that was most likely the celeb’s asst or publicist and that they were given the location and a time to be there. That’d put an end to celebs trying to set the agenda but the ratzi won’t bite the hand that feeds them. If the public was aware of how often celebs set up their own kids there’d be a helluva lot less sympathy for them when they whine about cameras in their kids’ faces.

    Dax and Kristen are part of the B/C/D-list celebrity actor contingent now mad that the kids of Reality TV stars and Pop singers have taken over the tabloid and weekly magazine industry. Seriously, Sheperd and Bell can’t even GIVE their kids pics away because the rags are too busy covering the North Wests, Blue Ivys, Mason Disicks, Yumas, and Zumas and Honey Boo Boos, and Brandi Glandville’s kid’s soccer matches. What’s an unfunny comedian and the star of a now cancelled tv show and parents to a kid they think is most special and most beautiful to do?! Well, they can squawk about boycotts….in other words, if you won’t put my kid on the cover of your rag, no way am I going to have to look at North West and Mama BooBoo’s news baby.
    .
    …and here we are.
    .
    Hilariously enough, People rag is already backing off their seeming agreement. The loopholes are large enough to drive 10 semis thru. For instance, their ‘we reserve the right to publish based on newsworthiness,’ Hahahahaha! Well gee People, that’s like saying we reserve the right to publish celeb kids when we want to! LOL
    .
    Rumor Has It, they might be regretting their decision soon – supposedly a superstar beautiful couple (not Brange) known for flying waay under the radar is pregnant – when it comes out, it will truly be just as much of a bombshell as Shiloh. So it will be interesting to see what these rags and mags do.
    .
    I find it hilarious that people like Halle, who scream about privacy, then set up pics at zoos and amusement parks (and please don’t say it’s for the kid, I think Nahla was 2 at the time) are going to have to circumvent the boycott, you know she wants to show off the new kid by Olivier Martinez…I bet he’s a cutie. She’s probably planning a magazine spread with the tot, as we speak.

    Good morning to you my darling Phool,
    .
    I was happily reading all the interesting news you have posted for us today when surprise, surprise, to my delight I see a post from you addressed to me. :)
    .
    I hope you are still on board my friend. I know you must have a very busy day ahead of you.
    .
    Yes, you told me not to repost your post but I could not do that because I wanted to share all of you with all the fans who love and appreciate you as much as I do just in case they had skipped your oh so well written post, since it was addressed to me.
    .
    I wanted the fans to share the same great, big belly laugh for the day that I was enjoying…thanks to you. Your exquisite humor just makes my day brighter my friend.
    .
    And, yes. Amazingly your critic could find only one issue to address in your excellent 7,000+ multi-worded, multi lined post – ‘woman/women.’ And you know what —– there was nothing ‘wrong’ with the spelling. :)
    .
    A virtual thesis could be written on that one simple critique alone but I chose not to and won’t go any further with that. :)
    .
    Bless her heart. It appeared to me she was trying her best to be ‘helpful.’
    .
    Sadly though, in her apparent haste to be “helpful” and share an English lesson with all us fans in the form of a “pet peeve” she completely overlooked the MULTIPLE English errors in her own simple three lined post.
    .
    But, as we all understand, Phool, that IS one of the ‘casualties’ we all encounter when we hastily scribble a response post. As even she admonished us in her post…..’double check what you post’ ….words to that effect.
    .
    To me, there is certainly nothing wrong with wanting to be “helpful” to a fellow fan, but I think the ‘caveat’ the Poet so eloquently cautioned us to take before trying to be helpful really applies here:
    .
    “First —– take the huge LOG out of your own eye so you can see clearly before trying to remove the tiny splinter from another’s eye.”
    .
    How many unnecessary headaches, arguments and bad feelings that one simple step would eliminate in this already difficult world.
    .
    But, alas, you were right, my darling and I do submit to your superior wisdom in these matters and promise NEVER to repost a post from you to me when you ask me not to.
    .
    Lesson humbly Learned.
    .
    I wish for you the beautiful, absolutely rewarding, happy day you so richly deserve. Your kindness to us fans overflows with every lovely, informative, good news and hilarious post submitted by you.

    The V.F. Social Club Teaches Us How to Predict the Oscars
    .
    It was William Goldman who famously said, “Nobody knows anything,” when speaking about Hollywood, but Peggy Siegal, film publicist extraordinaire and head of the Peggy Siegal Company, knows at least one thing: “If you want to win an Oscar, you have to understand who you’re playing to: primarily 65-year-old white Jewish men.”
    .
    According to Siegal, that’s who comprises the bulk of the nearly 6,000 members of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, for whom voting for the 86th annual Academy Awards closed late yesterday afternoon. Parsing just who all those members are and, more importantly, how they will vote and who they will vote for, was the subject on tap at the V.F. Social Club on Tuesday afternoon, the second day that the lounge was in business at the media-friendly WeWork space in Hollywood.
    .
    Hosted by Vanity Fair digital director Michael Hogan and presented by Chrysler, the panel on the art and science of predicting the Oscars—which has become a mini-industry within the larger world of film journalism—featured a formidable lineup spearheaded by V.F.’s own senior West Coast editor Krista Smith, Deadline’s Pete Hammond, Kyle Buchanan of Vulture, AwardsDaily guru Sasha Stone, Anne Thompson of Indiewire, and Dave Karger of Fandango, along with the outspoken Siegal. But who are we kidding? They’re all outspoken, and decidedly opinionated when it comes to their trade.
    .
    Stone, referred to as the “inventor of Oscar blogging,” started the hour off by explaining just how calling a clutch of awards on a single night in early March became a year-long activity based around a lengthy festival schedule: the action commences with early contenders at Sundance in January, continues through Cannes in May and picks up heat and momentum with the fall festival quartet of Toronto, Telluride, Venice, and New York. But why does it capture the attention and imagination of so many? Hammond had the answer: “[The Oscar] is a symbol that has worldwide reach. It’s one of the few things that means as much internationally as it does here.”
    .

    Continued…
    .
    From there our crew got into the intricate machinery of Oscar nominating and voting, which encompasses studio and Academy politics, campaigns or lack thereof, and, um, the mysteries of the human soul. “The reason they don’t vote for a great film is they vote with their heart,” theorized Stone about why the better film doesn’t always win. “‘I love this movie, I’m voting for it, no one is telling me any different.’ They also don’t like to be told what to vote for…When you’re considered a frontrunner in an Oscar race, people don’t want to vote for you for whatever reason.” (see: Brokeback Mountain)
    .
    That may partially explain what happened to Robert Redford. Smith brought up his disappointing omission from the best-actor category this year, despite a performance in All Is Lost that some predicted would land him not just a nomination but the win. “This was not going to happen,” said Thompson, explaining that Redford, though he did more press for the movie than usual, did not campaign especially hard by contemporary standards. . Plus Academy members were not on board—pardon the pun—with the movie itself, set entirely on a slowly sinking boat
    .
    An Oscar campaign is a long, brutal slog; if there were an award given for hardest Oscar-campaigning, this season’s nominees would probably be Bruce Dern, Jonah Hill, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Matthew McConaughey. “McConaughey called his reps and said, ‘I want to do more,’” Karger revealed about the best-actor nominee for Dallas Buyers Club. “They were thinking of pulling back but he wanted to keep going.” Buchanan added that Dern “has been pressing the flesh and making the rounds—they’re staking the whole thing on (Nebraska) being the capper to his career.”
    You can’t talk about Oscar campaigns, of course, without talking about the master of them all, Harvey Weinstein. “If anyone is P.T. Barnum and the Wizard of Oz combined, it’s Harvey Weinstein,” said Smith.
    .
    Harvey has just one horse in the race this year with Philomena, but his relatively small film didn’t factor into our final topic: the panelists’ own Oscar predictions. They unanimously agreed that Alfonso Cuaron, Cate Blanchett, and Jared Leto were done deals for director, actress, and supporting-actor prizes, respectively; there was less agreement about best picture, (a race between 12 Years a Slaveand Gravity) and best actor (McConaughey is a near certainty but Dern could pull an upset). In the end, it’s all down to those 6,000 members of the Academy—and even the most experienced of our Oscar handicappers can only guess what they’re thinking.
    Not that they don’t do their damnedest to read the tea leaves and even influence the course of events if they can. Karger recalled being approached by a woman and her two daughters while waiting on line at a local cupcake store – the woman recognized him from TV. “She asked me who was going to win the Oscar,” he explained, “And her daughter said, ‘You’re the one who decides?’”

    Just off the top of my head I seem to recall there is some category where mandatory viewing is required. Maybe Foreign Language Films. The films are shown by the academy at specific locations and the members have to sign in and affirm they saw the film. But I think this category is only voted on by a small panel of AMPAS members. Or am I imagining this? LOL!!

    Hollywood is as racist, sexist and homophobic as any backwoods burg in the middle of the reddest state in the Union. They just put lipstick on the pig and everyone applauds them like seals for being so liberal and inclusive.

    The hypocrisy is staggering. They “allow” Ellen to host the show and they give a few token nominations every year to people of color.

    This year, they will all tweet how wonderful Lupida, CE, McQueen and TYAS are but I’m sure they will not vote for them and when the backlash hits, they will all cry how unfair it is and claim that it wasn’t them because they voted for them.

    Hollywood is the bigoted person who says, “Oh but I have black/gay/female/etc. friends, so I’m not racist, homophobic or sexist”.

    “Love what baffles me is considering the JP threads are on daily basis littered with Rants against Brad & Angelina, littered with foul demeaning language towards JP’s and Fan’s, and yet you never hear a peep from the ‘Grammar Police’ do you? not a peep at all,…”
    .
    .
    Phool, I must agree with everything you say here because it does not make sense that an intelligent, sane person perusing the JP threads would and could overlook the vile, disgusting and hate filled posts of the trolls and give no reprimand to them yet be so quick to zero in on a perfectly innocuous post such as yours and feel compelled to ‘reprimand’ you for some silly oversight.
    .
    I think we as fans know what is not right and what makes no sense must stem from Insanity.

    And we know the trolls are insane.
    .
    And that is why the so called “Grammar Police” singles you and other JP fans out for reprimand and not its compatriot Trolls because the Grammar Police is an Insane Troll itself and recognizes and supports its own. And sometimes the “Grammar Police” will hide behind the moniker of a fan or pretend to even be a fan.
    .
    The Troll can always run but it can never really hide what it is because it can’t keep its insane hateful behavior under wraps but for a short span of time. Sooner rather than later it always reveals itself.
    .
    The Troll is enraged when you share such great and wonderful news about the JoliePitts on a daily basis. It does not want to hear it even though it loves parking its rear end on a JP thread every single day.
    .
    It’s only means of satisfaction is to attack you and other fans to try and extract some kind of ‘revenge’ for it feeling offended and exposed.
    .
    The troll is a childish, tantrum throwing, wrongheaded, pained, sick minded, viciously cruel creature who wants to hurt the JP fans because the fans are always exposing their idol Aniston simply by pointing out what she does.
    .
    The Troll doesn’t want the JP fans shining a light on the many underhanded things Aniston does, because the troll wants Aniston to remain a perceived perpetual “victim” of Angelina in the eyes of the world forever.
    .
    A condition Anistion appears to love being identified with because it is the role she has been playing so successfully for the last almost 10 years. Even enlisting her friends, e.g. Handler to reinforce and support her “victim” status in her stand up talks and on her TV talk show.
    .
    No one in Hollywood has ever played a greater victim role and milked a divorce for so long than Aniston.
    .
    The trolls are like little annoying gnats who go around making nuisances of themselves trying to get under the skin of every JP fan.
    .
    What they Love most of all is to be talked about, analyzed, studied, researched, identified, see their names repeated every where on every JP thread and complained and fawned over like some celebrated individual.
    .
    They love it when the fans ask innocently ” I wonder what troll so and so would have to say about blah, blah blah regarding the JPs?” Or, the fan will ask…”Where is Troll so and so today? I am sure Troll so and so will be on Board later talking its usual ….etc.”
    .
    Now, you will have to forgive me but I do have to ask WHY in the name of all that is sensible do fans care about and want to know what a friggin’ stupid, hate-filled, idiotic, senseless troll has to say about ANYTHING regarding the JPs, as if the stupid Troll is going to ever change the looney tune it has been singing about the JPs for the last 10 years.
    .
    I have to also ask Why do fans consistently INVITE the hate filled Trolls to come on board and start spouting their inanities when the Trolls are not even present?
    .
    Now THAT is what is truly baffling to me.
    .
    .
    We all know what the Troll hates most of all is to be ignored.
    .
    So why don’t we ignore them. Yes. Their lies must be addressed and corrected, that is clearly understood. But can we try to do that without making the troll the focus. Of course, those are my own opinions. I understand respect that every fan is always free to respond as they wish without reprimand.
    .
    May I say, Phool, the Troll’s behavior is never truly baffling to me in a real sense because it is so predictably redundant, and stupid and easily identified. And the Troll is nothing, demonstrates that every day and has only the power of recognition that we give them.
    .
    So in a sense we have the power to destroy them simply thru non-recognition and by not allowing ourselves to be sucked into the stupid conversation games with them they play every single day.
    .
    I do want to thank all the fans who have been correcting and continue to correct the Trolls many lies and errors and for not hitting the “Reply” button when responding to the idiotic trolls. It is amazing how much cleaner the JP threads look w/o the trolls ugly names all over the thread.

    The only thing I hate about this development is big O’s obvious pr attempt to make it seem as though this would not be happening if not for her. The same her that couldn’t get herself an Oscar nomination, nor one for her picture. And just whose pic actually has the great ROI? Exactly!

    OT – for any literary ladies and fans of The Wire.
    I’ve just returned from an amazing event. It was a debate: Jane Austen v Emily Bronte. A current author spoke on behalf of each writer, then selected the best extracts from the writer’s classic book which were performed by 4 actors.

    Before the debate the audience was 55% for Austen, 24%for Bronte and 21% unsure.
    Well, the debate was fantastic. But the acting performances were electric!
    I admire Austen but I am a Bronte girl through and through. I was 12 when I first read Wuthering Heights and hundreds of books later it remains my absolute favourite. Dark, brooding, intense, moody, magnificent des it for me!
    Heathcliff was played by Dominic West from the Wire. Oh, goodness! It got VERY hot in the auditorium!!!
    He was great. No actor has ever captured Heathcliff, imo, but Dominic nailed it. ( My dream casting for the role would have been a younger Daniel Day Lewis).
    Anyway, after the hotness, we voted again. Austen 51% Bronte 47%!
    I don’t want to post a link in case it doesn’t go through but anyone who is interested can look up Intelligence squared and see the video of the debate.

The Hair has a gym at her home; there is no need for him to go out to work out. The poster thinks this points to The Hobbit is no longer living with The Hair. But he definitely wants to be seen, and make people think they are still together, because most bikers wear a helmet without a face shield (for protection of course, but it also helps hid your identity from the paps). But not this guy.

    Ok Groundcontrol and Falp – one last thing for you Westonians before I go to bed. Did you see the British film The Full Monty? It was about men made redundant by Thatcher’s policies in the north of England. The men see how much money the Chippendales make by taking their clothes off for screaming women so they form a bad dance/ strip troupe to make some cash.
    Well, the film is now a stage play. I saw a preview last week. It’s great fun.
    Last night it had its premiere. Your man Dominic was in the audience. He loved the show and said he would definitely be up for starring in it and stripping!!!!!!
    I’ll leave you with THAT image in your minds. I expect when I return tomorrow, one of the other posters will tell me that Groundcontrol and FALP are no more – all that remains of each is a puddle of drool ……

    Kevin James, Josh Gad For ‘Pixels’

    EXCLUSIVE: Sony has found its leads for Pixels, the Chris Columbus-directed film. Kevin James and Josh Gad are in early talks to star in the film. Adam Sandler and Jack Giarraputo’s Happy Madison is producing. Tim Herlihy and Tim Dowling wrote the script, based on short by Patrick Jean. Production will begin this summer. The logline: When aliens attack by staging versions of ’80s video games on an epic scale, four champion arcade gamers are called back into action to save the world.

She can’t stand anyone else getting attention for humanitarian work, especially a person who unanimously won the world’s admiration and respect for her bravery at such a young age. Heroina is so jealous of her that I don’t doubt that she would stage an assassination attempt against her own self with hopes of getting the same press coverage Malala received.

And one person I would like to single out for thanks is Brad Pitt because without Brad Pitt this film would never have been made,” he said.

    Hi, my Love!
    .
    Yes it is so nice to be on board with you at the same time for a change and yes I did see all the information you posted re: the rain barrels, etc., and please accept my belated, “Thank you very much.”
    .
    I also apologize for my slow reply. I am still playing “catch up” after being away for several days. First day back I was great then jet lag set in the following day and today I am sleep walking. :) Tomorrow I should be fully back in the saddle. :)
    .
    You know I can never thank you enough for all the wonderful suggestions and solutions you always offer to solve my many little problems. The fact that you even take the time to respond is worth pure gold to me. Those barrels sound a bit heavy scary and rather expensive. I will see what my family has to say about them even though I think they are a great idea. Since this drought began they have been looking at me sideways because I am like a crazy person doing all I can to not use too much water. Please don’t get me wrong, I do stay clean. :)
    .
    Hey, let me interrupt myself here and say what a pleasure it is to see so many upbeat, lively and always encouraging posts from you today my friend. This is a rare treat for us and very much appreciated.
    .
    1. So you have NEVER washed your car FALP? In California with all the dust and smog and gunk circulating? That is amazing. The funny thing though is when it rains on my car it gets so dirty looking it is embarrassing. And I do keep my car garaged. Then I just take it to the car wash. But since the drought hardly any cars are going thru the car wash. I think some people have become very conscious of how precious water is and everyone is trying to do their part. Also I doubt that it rains here as much as where you are.
    .
    2. And girlfriend I am right there with you with the dish water and I include my bath tub water. Hold everything though. My bathtub water is clean because I only take bubble baths :) ….love those bubbles and scented soaps….and they are biodegradeable, at least that is what the ingredients on the bottles say. Can they be trusted? Hmmmmmm… I wonder but they smell deliciously. Then I lug buckets of water outside to water my trees and flowers. It is tedious and laborious, I must tell you, and then I feel like I need another bath when I am done. :)
    .
    Another friend told me to just put my water hose in the tub and walk the hose outside and lay it on the ground and the hose will move the water from the tub to the lawn, trees, etc., and save myself from becoming a hunchback lugging water from the tub to outside. Needless to say, I am getting no help from my family with my watering gigs. They keep telling me rain is coming soon so stop working so hard and this is the 21st Century – whatever that is supposed to mean.
    .
    And – let me stop here. Jared keeps kicking me out. Let me send you another post FALP.. Thanks.

    I saw a similar story earlier today at THR but was busy and didn’t have time to mention it. Not to pat myself on the back again – yes, I am – but it’s exactly what I said the other day about Mean Moms and The $7MIL Movie. She announces these rinky-dink indie projects in hopes of getting studio work. She’s been doing it for years. She knows the chances of those indie movies ever seeing the light of day are pretty damned slim. Shite. She’s still waiting for Nutty Squirrels and Crime on Life to get release dates and she filmed those movies over 12 months ago. That guy who’s set to direct The $7MIL MOvie needs to call the director of Beaches Redux for tips on how to pull the knife out of his back without bleeding to death.

    3. Trolls consider themselves separate from the social order.
    4. Trolls do not abide by etiquette or the rules of common courtesy.

    I think people are forgetting that Par OWNS some of Plan B’s projects. There are some projects that Par purchased for Plan B to develop (including The Imperfectionists, Important Artifacts, The Tiger, Vlad and The Big Short: Inside The Doomsday Machine (and probably half a dozen other projects). That gives them automatic right of first refusal even though Plan B has moved to New Regency. I think Selma is probably one of those projects. That was not the case with TYAS. That was developed independently of their Par development deal but Par was still supposed to get first shot at distribution. They passed on it and of course later claimed that DeDe misrepresented the project to them. So Plan B is going to be dealing with Par for years to come if any of those projects move forward. That’s why Par isn’t throwing a big hissy fit that Plan B left. It’s just like when Dreamworks left – Par kept the rights to a ton of Dreamworks projects and will benefit financially as long as they own those rights.

    Whoa!!! I don’t even understand where they get the nerve to do this.
    .
    At that Facebook page for Ticky by her fan they have pics from the photo shoot for Living Rough commercials, ads and even some finished ad.
    .
    But, but, but her hair is full of extensions. How can they possibly pretend this is her hair? For a commercial about hair? We all know when she cut her hair and we all know it can’t grow miraculously that fast and yet she is pretending that’s hair that has been treated by Living Rough?
    .
    ROTFLMAO!!!!
    .
    Just like her many facial surgeries and treatments recently before she play acted in an ad campaign that her face is the product of Aveeno. They aren’t even trying to be real are they?
    .
    She deserves to get laughed out of every magazine.

    Seriously, O2, what could that be about other than hawking something or looking for financiers\investors? “And Evening with…” type events are generally used for charity events but we all know Ticky believes that charity starts are home – her home, for her benefit and no one else’s. So is she doing a charity event or selling something\begging for investors? I know where I put my money. Katherine Heigl went public with her plea for money to finish making her movie. Ticky’s just trying to be more private about it. LOL!

    Whether you post TO trolls or post amongst JP fans ABOUT trolls or even simply refer to them in passing, the trolls see this as attention. Ignore means COMPLETELY IGNORE.
    .
    But of course, it’s difficult to completely ignore them. Trolls keeping throwing out different lures to engage you. So, I think it’s never going to happen. Anyone who wants to post on the JJ threads about the JP’s simply have to accept that JP fans themselves are not going to be able to resist the lures Trolls throw out. I do feel annoyed when JP fans rise to the bait sometimes, but – hey, I have the choice whether to come here, read or scroll down. And in the end, I do think the JP’s have the best fans :-)

    Hi FALP,
    .
    I’m back. :)
    .
    And what you are doing with your potted plants is not silly at all. Whatever works and gets the job done is what I say.
    .
    One thing I recently noticed is some of my neighbors, to avoid having to water the lawn, did not bother to plant winter grass this year. Well, I still feel okay about my winter grass because I had already cut back the auto sprinklers from 3 days a week to 2 days. But now that we are on mandatory rationing I have cut that out completely.
    .
    I don’t remember it ever being this bad FALP. It is kind of scary. There is a creek nearby that usually has water in it but even that has but a trickle now. But I have to say all the people in our little community are okay with the water rationing. No one is complaining and no one seems to be panicking and we do share ideas. I have even shared your idea about the rain barrels. So, so far all is good. I have to trust that this is happening for a good reason and good will come out of it.
    .
    I wish I were an engineer. I would be pushing for that water pipeline! :) Makes perfect sense to me and would solve so many water problems for California.
    .
    Let me also say thank you for sharing a bit on your understanding of Cook. I can tell you and he have a special rapport and you do treat him very gently and after what you have explained I think you are using great wisdom in doing so.
    .
    I do not know if I have told you this FALP but you are a very special lady with a very special calling. I marvel at what you and Rose do. Your jobs cannot be done well by just ordinary highly educated individuals. It seems to me it take a whole lot more than just having the ‘degrees’ behind your names to do what you ladies do.
    .
    The compassion, the care, the kindness, the willingness to help and speak and treat gently and speak boldly when necessary, because you know what each situation calls for is a talent, skill or perhaps a better word is a “gift” because those things cannot be taught by rote. I think you have to come by them naturally.
    .
    I would like to include Lylian in that as well. She, too, comes across with so much compassion when she is explaining things. She has no idea how much she is appreciated. And our lovely Ground control as well. We all may not see eye to eye or agree on every issue, but I have to say it is a blessing to have such professionals as yourselves ….let me not leave out Observer 2, on board to use as sounding boards to try and see all sides of issues that may be at times painful to accept and understand.
    .
    I have to say all the JoliePitt fans are one unique group. There is no other group like this one anywhere on the net that I know of. And I have not searched the net to find out so that is just my opinion. But it means something to me. :)
    .
    Have a great evening my dear. Oh, and I am glad you enjoyed my other post. :) Thank you for all the funny things you shared with me.
    .
    Blessings walk with you always.

    Why Do People Enjoy Being Internet Trolls aka TAMSHIT?

    Ans: it is a kind of power rush or ego trip to be a troll. Being online is a place that is largely free of perceived consequences… an insecure person can get a sense of power online, without ever having to face someone directly. With the Internet being a world of imagination and fantasy for some, cowardly users can forge an alter ego for themselves, and act out their feelings of anger and inadequacy. It’s sad and unfortunate that our advanced communications also brings out the darker side of many people.

    Good evening, my friend, I hope you’re having a pleasant evening whatever you’re doing.

    I got a glimpse at The View and they had an actress from the Big Bang Theory that most men in a survey wanted to be with. I suppose 20 years ago, Ticky would have been somewhere on that list (no accounting for taste), how the mighty have fallen indeed. I’m sure she believed she was moving on to bigger and better things after Friends… LOL.

    She thought it was cute to sneak around will Paul Schiffer (or whatever his name is) like a schoolgirl and didn’t even fight for her marriage… well, look where she is now.

    I hope the sitcom actresses around today don’t get a swollen head like she did when Brad plucked her from tv and elevated her.

    For a loon, to wake up every single day is punishment enough which is why I can only wish nothing but longevity for all of them. I just don’t know how they manage to get up every morning, so much so that it breaks my heart, but I hold on to hope that perhaps one day they take a look back at all the crazy things they’ve done on behalf of two shallow celebrities and then they will realize what a waste their lives have been until that day.

    3. Loons consider themselves separate from the social order, like their idol, The Jolie.
    4. Loons do not abide by etiquette or the rules of common courtesy.
    5. Loons are ruthless and consider themselves above social responsibility.
    6. Loons gain energy by any mention of the Jolie-Shitts, however trivial.
    7. Loons gain energy from their delusions about the Jolie-Shitts and by attacking any critics of the Jolie-Shitts.

    Perfect pitch for movie ‘Unbroken’
    ============================

    (Reuters) / 27 February 2014
    .
    Jolie opened up about the exhaustive process it was to pitch the movie to studio executives, which she undertook herself. Angelina Jolie says she ‘pitched her butt off’ to sell Unbroken to movie execs. TOM BROKAW CONDUCTED a rare interview with Angelina Jolie and 97-year-old Louis Zamperini on the Today show on Tuesday about their upcoming film Unbroken, a biopic about the former distance runner and legendary World War II hero’s life.
    .
    Jolie opened up about the exhaustive process it was to pitch the movie to studio executives, which she undertook herself. “This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” Jolie revealed. I had all the hours of phone calls and things and made all these boards. I took my glue and tape and pictures off the internet and tried to – and I put all my boards in a garbage bag and I carried them to Universal myself and put them out and I pitched my butt off!”
    .
    “Just watching the two of you, I’ll bet this is not just a filmmaker’s journey for you,” Brokaw said to Jolie. “This becomes really personal, because you’ve got the legacy of this amazing man in your hands and on the big screen.”“Such a huge responsibility to get it right,” Jolie said. “I love him so much and he’s helped me so much in my life!”
    .
    “Did you find the book on your own, or did somebody send it to you?” Brokaw asked.
    “I wanted to direct something again, but I wasn’t sure what,” she explained. “And I wanted…it had to be something I would love and care about because it takes much more time away from your family and much more effort than acting.”
    .
    Incredibly, Zamperini’s home overlooks Jolie’s in the Hollywood Hills. “I imagine that for the last 10-something years, he’s been sitting there having a coffee in the morning and wondering who’s going to make this movie!” Jolie exclaimed. “And I’ve been sitting in my room laying there thinking, ‘What am I supposed to be doing with my life? I wanna do something important. I need some help. I need some guidance. Where is it?’ And it was right outside my window.”

    Behind The Scenes: ’12 Years a Slave’
    ================================

    8 hours ago
    .

    “12 Years a Slave” is up for a whopping nine Oscars at this year’s Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor, Best Director for Steve McQueen, and Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong’o.
    .
    The Oscar-nominated flick was filmed in various locations in Hollywood South in 2012 including Lake Pontchartrain and Destrehan Plantation. The majority of the film was shot at Felicite Plantation, which is the sister plantation to St. Joseph Plantation in Vacherie.
    .
    “You can feel the energy here, from the trees, plants, and spirits still here. The plantation would give us the most of what we needed for the main character. Such a marvelous place,” Gerard Sellers, Location Manager for “12 Years a Slave”, said.
    .
    “12 Years a Slave” is set on a Louisiana plantation in the 1800′s. It’s based on Solomon Northup’s biography about his horrifying experiences as a once free man, sold into slavery.
    .
    Detail was important for Sellers and his crew. John Collins helped run day to day operations and worked closely with Brad Pitt.
    .
    ((((((The one driving engine in making this a success is Brad Pitt and I don’t think people should forget that,” Collins said.))))
    .
    A key scene between Pitt and Chiwetel Ejiofor’s character, Solomon took place in a gazebo, which was built exclusively for the movie.
    .
    “This is the part of the movie where hope came in and when Solomon found his one ally. This is where he got his freedom,” Collins said.
    .
    Felicite Plantation was definitely more than a backdrop. It’s a 3-mile stretch of land, which became a silent character of it’s own.
    .
    “That spirit has carried over to the success of the movie,” Sellers said.
    .
    The mansion on property was built in 1847. Tune into the 86th annual Academy Awards on WGNO this Sunday.

    WATCH: Running Footage from the Movie “Unbroken”
    =============================================
    The story of Olympian Louie Zamperini will be in theaters on Christmas.
    .
    February 26, 2014
    .
    Period footage of actor Jack O’Connell as 1936 Olympic 5000-meter runner Louie Zamperini in the upcoming movie “Unbroken” was included in an NBC interview that Tom Brokaw did with Zamperini and the film’s director, Angelina Jolie. The movie based on Laura Hillenbrand’s #1 bestseller is due in theaters on December 25.
    .
    Zamperini set a national high school record of 4:21.2 in the mile in 1934 and then competed in the 5000 in the 1936 Berlin Games at age 19 (and not in the 1500, as the NBC interview incorrectly states). He ran a 56-second final 400 meters to move up to eighth place, after which German Chancellor Adolf Hitler asked to meet him. “All he said was ‘the boy with the fast finish,’” Zamperini, who is now 97 years old, tells Brokaw.
    .
    Zamperini would set a national collegiate record of 4:12 in the mile in 1938 but his track career was disrupted by the Second World War, in which he served as a bombardier in the South Pacific. His plane crashed and he endured 47 days stranded at sea, and he subsequently spent two years of harsh conditions and brutal treatments in Japanese internment camps. Undoubtedly, the strength he developed as a distance runner contributed to his amazing ability to survive the ordeal. All of this is recounted in Hillenbrand’s book and will be featured in Jolie’s “Unbroken” movie.
    .
    Jolie, an Academy Award-winning actress who directed “in the Land of Blood and Money” in 2011, says, in NBC interview excerpts posted at Huffington Post and other media outlets, that getting “Unbroken” made “has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” She said, “I had these hours of phone calls. I made all these boards. I took glue and tape and pictures off the internet. I put all my boards in a garbage bag, and carried them to Universal (Studios) myself and I put them out. I pitched my butt off.”
    .
    Unbeknownst to either of them, Zamperini and Jolie had been neighbors for several years; the roof of her home is visible from his patio. They’re now great friends, and Jolie feels “such a huge responsibility to get it [Zamperini’s story] right,” adding, “he’s helped me so much in my life.
    .
    For her, the message of “Unbroken” is clear: “it can seem dark and it can seem hopeless and it can seem very overwhelming, but the resilience and strength of the human spirit is an extraordinary thing.”

    Get Ready For The 2014 Oscars With Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie’s Best Red Carpet Moments
    =========================================================================
    .
    26 February 2014 by Kate

    .
    The 2014 Oscars have almost landed – and we’re super hyped about the stars about to hit the red carpet in Hollywood. Not only are the likes of Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey and Leonardo DiCaprio in the running for awards, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are apparently going to make an appearance! Eek!
    .
    It’s sure to be a glamorous but also a tense evening for the duo. Not only do the couple have an award to present together, Brad co-produced and starred in film 12 Years A Slave, which is up for nine Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress.
    .
    It’s not Mr and Mrs Pitt’s first red carpet trip this awards season though. They DOMINATED the BAFTAs just two-weeks ago in matching tuxedos – Angelina working a laidback ‘I’m just going to undo my bow-tie and grab a whisky before bed’ look and Brad sporting a more uptight style.
    .
    Their appearance reignited our passion for Team Brangelina who’ve smashed couple-style at various premieres and awards ceremonies for more than seven years now. There were their matching navy looks and Angelina’s incredible emerald gown at the Golden Globes in 2011 and of course the split leg Oscars dress in 2012. Plus Brad’s never afraid to mix up his traditional suit with accessories like sunglasses. Remember THE CANE?!
    .

    Steven Ivory: Slaves, Still
    ======================
    .
    25th Feb 2014
    .
    *I finally saw “12 Years A Slave.” I purposely put off watching director Steve McQueen’s epic based on the 1853 autobiography by Solomon Northup, which tells his story of being born a free black man who is kidnapped in 1841 and sold into slavery, working on Louisiana plantations for twelve years before being released.
    .
    I got upset during parts of the Lee Daniels film, “The Butler,” about a black servant who worked as a butler in the White House from the 1950s until the ‘80s. I wasn’t eager to feel that way again. However, with the Oscars coming up, and “12 Years A Slave” having emerged as a serious contender, I figured I should at least check it out.
    .
    Not ten minutes into the story, I was absolutely seething. I’ve seen my share of slavery films, but “Slave” is an especially emotional and brutal piece of story-telling about human beings treating other humans worse than animals. At some point, I became angrier than I’ve been in a long time. At another point, I cried. I told myself it’s just a movie, but then I remembered that it isn’t–slavery actually happened.
    .
    It didn’t help my fragile sense of reality that I’d never seen Chiwetel Ejiofor (“Northup”), newcomer Lupita Nyong’o (“Patsey”) or Michael Fassbender in anything before this. For my taste Fassbender seemed entirely too comfortable as Edwin Epps, a slave master who was pure evil. Admittedly, somehow I feel better after learning he’s been in other films of McQueen, who is black. It was also reassuring, a couple days after seeing “Slave,” to find Nyong’o on the cover of a recent New York magazine and modeling fashions inside. So she was just acting, after all! Whew.
    .
    As unsettling as it is, by the film’s end, I was grateful that I’d taken the time to watch it.
    .
    However, afterward, I couldn’t help but think that “12 Years A Slave” could have been titled “How We Became Who We Are,” for the film offers a stark blueprint to the fear, ignorance and racial hate that is America’s DNA.
    .
    For example, today, in the 21st Century, there still exists the venomous, self-righteous racism represented by Fassbender’s character—it’s called the Tea Party. And there are the those citizens who realize things aren’t what they should be in this country but are too complacent to do anything about it. In the film, William Ford (played by Benedict Cumberpatch), Northup’s first owner, was such a man: kind to Northup and respectful of his skills as a carpenter and a classical violinist, he still saw human beings as property.
    .
    On the other hand, Brad Pitt’s character, Samuel Bass, the gentle, clear-thinking abolitionist who aided Solomon in ultimately attaining his freedom, reflects that segment of white America that took the leap and voted for Barack Obama for President. Twice.
    .
    Ejiofor and Nyong’o, as slaves, portrayed the kind of strength and dignity running through the veins of every human in any society of any era who was/is determined and courageous enough to persevere for their survival and equality.
    .
    However, it is the malodorous residue of the film’s biggest-star—the institution of slavery itself–that continues to hold a stranglehold on the black American. Indeed, centuries later, too many of us are still slaves. No longer do we have slave masters; we’ve cut out the middle man. Today, black men and women are shameless drudges to a mighty and sinister dysfunction passed down from generation to generation. We’re seriously caught up.
    .
    They used to threaten us with physical pain or fire pistols at our feet to make us jump for their amusement. Today, some of our most popular young entertainers have taken buffoonery to new underwater depths on their own, their actions devoured and emulated by minions who don’t know the difference. Men and women revel like peacocks in their sexualized selves, believing the exhibition represents power and freedom, when it reveals weakness and spiritual privation.
    .
    We no longer need racists to call us niggers. In an act of deviation that can only be deemed surreal, we’ve claimed that hateful word as our own with a vengeance, too psychologically impaired to know or believe that every time we use that word, even–especially– in so-called “affection,” it diminishes the spirit.
    .
    The fact is, things have changed. I am fortunate enough to live in a time when American descendants of slavery have it better than any black American in any era. However, just as America has its first black President, it also harbors the Ted Nugents of the world, who publicly refers to the President as a “subhuman mongrel” with little or no repudiation from too many who snicker and privately encourage this behavior.The film “12 Years A Slave” reminded me of just how far we’ve come. Who we are today reminds me of how far we have to go. All of us. Still.

    It Takes a Lot of Strength to Carry 29 Awards! The Lupita Nyong’o Arm Workout
    ============================================================
    .
    26th Feb 2014
    .
    Lupita Nyong’o has been wowing us all award season long. But it wasn’t her breathtaking red carpet looks or darling selfies that had us gasping the first time we saw her — it was her killer arms. They are strong, toned, and more than capable of carrying all the awards she’s racking up this season. So we turned to Meka Gibson, personal training manager at David Barton Gym, to find out how we can chisel our own upper bodies into something even slightly close to resembling Lupita. “The way to toned arms like Lupita’s is making sure to work the major upper body muscles to create symmetry and definition,” says Meka.
    .
    To achieve this balance, Meka gave us three exercises that can be done at home or in the gym and perfectly complement a cardio workout. For all of these exercises, Meka recommends choosing weights that will allow you to do 10 to 11 reps with good form. “It should be slightly challenging to get those last two to four reps,” she says. If you find you can easily swing the weights, or can’t finish the movement from beginning to end, choose a more appropriate weight or stop and rest before starting the next set.

    Make it a ‘Hollywood and vines’ Oscar night
    ====================================
    .
    Thrursday 02.27.14
    .
    The Academy Awards ceremony is Sunday night, and some wine columnists are offering party pairings themed to the contending films — a nice New Jersey merlot for American Hustle, perhaps, or a Midwestern chardonnay for Nebraska.
    ,
    We have a better idea: Make it a “Hollywood and Vines” night with wines by entertainment-industry luminaries. It turns out there are a good number of them. In some cases the stars take a serious interest in their wineries; in others, they’re lending their names in endorsement deals. (I’ve tasted some of these wines but not all, so I’m not including tasting notes.)
    .
    Francis Ford Coppola: In 1975, the film director bought the historic Inglenook winery in California’s Napa Valley. He took a major role in the winemaking, and one of his early red blends, “Rubicon,” brought to mind the helicopter rocket fire from his Apocalypse Now. The wine is more subtle today — a blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, petit verdot and merlot — but still powerful, and $155 a bottle. In 2005, Coppola bought a second winery, Souverain, in Sonoma County, and renamed it Francis Ford Coppola Winery. Here he turns out a “Director’s Cut” line of wines including one he calls “Cinema” — a blend of cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel and petite sirah — for $20. Coppola also makes a light sparkling wine called Sofia Blanc de Blancs, in tribute to his director-daughter, Sofia. A blend of pinot blanc, sauvignon blanc and muscat, it comes in a can with its own sipping straw, at $5.
    .
    Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: The couple partnered in 2012 with France’s winemaking Perrin family to make Ch-au Miraval Rosé at their 1,200-acre estate in Provence. A blend of cinsault, grenache, syrah and rolle grapes, it’s $28.
    .
    Drew Barrymore: The actress fell in love with Italian whites, and decided to put her family’s name on one. Barrymore Pinot Grigio, IGT Delle Venezie, made by Northeast Italy’s Vinicola Decordi, is $20.
    .
    Madonna: The singer reportedly chipped in $1.5 million for her parents’ Ciccone Vineyard and Winery in Sutton’s Bay, Mich., which produces cabernet franc, pinot noir, chardonnay, pinot grigio gewurztraminer, dolcetto, pinot blanc, riesling, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, muscat and malbec wines, as well as cold-weather hybrids Marechal Foch and De Chaunac, in the $13-$17 range.
    .
    Fess Parker: Famous for his Davy Crocket and Daniel Boone TV roles in the 1950s, the star established the Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard in California’s Santa Ynez Valley. By the time of his 2010 death it was making award-winning pinot noir, syrah, chardonnay and viognier that’s priced at $15 to $50.
    .
    Antonio Banderas: The dashing Spanish star bought half interest in a 600-acre vineyard in the famous Ribera del Duero area north of Madrid in 2009. Anta Banderas makes a chardonnay and several blends of tempranillo, cabernet sauvignon and merlot priced at $16 to $45.
    .
    Sam Neill: Born in Northern Ireland and raised in New Zealand, the actor bought five acres of land in southern New Zealand in 1993 (presumably with earnings from his starring role in that year’s Jurassic Park), and founded Two Paddocks winery. Today he has 42 acres, producing riesling and pinot noir that sell for $32 to $70 a bottle.
    .
    Emilio Estevez: The Staten Island-born star of the 1980s films The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo’s Fire and his fiancee, Sonja Magdevski, run Casa Dumetz at their Malibu estate, turning out syrah, gewurztraminer, grenache, viognier and a sparkling syrah called “Sonja’s Suds” in the $30 range.

    Anyhooo…….i just wanted to remind those who’ve been wondering why the rush with promotions for Unbroken and its occurred to me that not only did the plans to make his movie languish for many years until Angie brought her “can do” energy to the effort (and now we all see the results of that: the movie has been made!) but we must remember that MR ZAMPERINI is 97 YEARS OLD!!
    .
    Just look at how Angie relates to him in this clip…….she is highly aware of the very little amount of time he has left…………..its very possible he might not even be here in December for the big Premiere etc.
    .
    So my bet is that she will be working nonstop to see that this movie is completed as quickly as possible so that Mr Zamperini will get to see it in its entirety.
    .
    I’m sure all the parties involved: the studio, Brad and Angie and other special invitees will have a big private “do” when Mr Zamperini sees the complete movie for the first time. And i believe this will happen by summer.

    Simon is an egotistical jackass, there is a picture of the two of them going to dinner with the woman he was engaged to, while getting this married woman pregnant.
    I think all these girlfriends that hang out with Simon do it for the money, because If I’m dating someone there is no way he is bringing a bunch of his former girlfriends along.

    WfWI to Co-host Premiere of New Angelina Jolie Movie “In the Land of Blood and Honey.”
    =================================================================================
    .

    02/27/2014
    .

    Oscar Winning actress will attend the screening, which sheds light on the Bosnian War. Organization has been operating in the region since 1993.
    .
    Women for Women International announced today they are partnering with the Council on Foreign Relations to co-host Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie’s new film, “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” on Monday, December 5 in New York City.
    .
    Women for Women International, which was founded because of the Bosnian War in 1993 and the rape of over 20,000 women there, is an organization dedicated to helping women of all ethnicities who’ve been affected by war to rebuild their lives. Fittingly, the first office they opened was in war-torn Bosnia and Herzegovina back in 1994, and the organization has since expanded their work into seven other countries of conflict including Afghanistan, Iraq and Congo. Women for Women International Founder Zainab Salbi said, “It’s ironic after nearly two decades of working in war-torn countries as we are in Congo, rape is still a fundamental issue. It’s time this stopped once and for all, and we’re glad ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’ brings light back to this hugely important issue.
    .
    It reminds the world about the atrocities women face in war and that we are a long way from stopping these atrocities.”
    .

    .
    Set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War that tore the Balkan region apart in the 1990s, the movie tells the story of Danijel and Ajla, two Bosnians from different sides of the brutal ethnic conflict. The film portrays the incredible emotional, moral, and physical toll that the war takes on individuals as well as the consequences that stem from the lack of political will to intervene in a society stricken by conflict.
    .
    For nearly two decades Women for Women International has helped over 316,000 women survivors of war to move from crisis and poverty, to stability and self-sufficiency. Although the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina ended more than 15 years ago, it toppled the economy and political system and shattered lives. Women are still struggling today: to heal, to recover and to reunite.
    .
    Women for Women International’s programs in Bosnia and Herzegovina include direct financial aid, rights awareness classes, job and business skills training, and emotional support, thereby promoting viable civil societies.
    .
    The Bosnian War claimed over 100,000 lives and over two million people were driven from their homes. In partnering with the Council on Foreign Relations for the premiere of “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” Women for Women International hopes people will be reminded how victims of war, particularly women, need ongoing support in post conflict countries.

    The Brad and Angelina Effect
    ======================
    .
    25TH February 2014
    .

    Until their recent, fabulous appearance in matching tuxedos, I was always fairly immune to the Brad and Angelina effect. For some reason, they just haven’t done it for me.
    .
    But with those matching tuxedos and complementary bow ties – hers undone, his awkwardly placed around the teeniest of collars – at the BAFTAs last week, it seems I’ve become a victim of their ridiculous adorableness. As it happens, this was no ordinary red carpet affair:
    .
    Brad wore his hair extremely short on the sides and modelled a stunning, shawl collar dinner suit by Valentino, while Angelina looked glowingly beautiful in Saint Laurent.

    What impressed me most is the way Pitt stood out on the red carpet amid a sea of equally beautiful suits.
    .

    Oscars 2014: Patricia Norris on creating the costumes for 12 Years a Slave
    ===============================================================
    .
    BY Bibby Sowray | 27 February 2014

    .

    Patricia Norris has been in the costume business for, as she puts it, a “long, long time.” More specifically, that’s about 50 years. In that time, the 82-year-old has managed to rack up no less than six Oscar nominations for films such as The Elephant Man and Days of Heaven. Number six is for 12 Years A Slave, the true story of Solomon Northup, a free black man sold into slavery in 1841.
    .

    Of all of this year’s Best Achievement in Costume Design nominees, it’s probably the least obvious in terms of its wardrobe. There are no sequins or designer names and the clothes are entirely secondary to the story, they merely support and affirm it. Nevertheless, it presented Norris with one of her biggest challenges to date.
    .
    In her research, she quickly found that there were very few, if any, photographs of slaves from the period covered in the film. “There were some etchings but they tended to be very ‘happy’ – a slave sitting under a tree, eating an apple – drawn by a white man,” she notes.
    .
    “I really had to use my imagination and, for the slaves, go with a starting point of 10-15 years before what was actually in fashion at the time because they would have worn hand-me-downs from the owners of whichever plantation they were sold to.”
    .
    Slaves, she explains, would often have arrived naked, be given clothes and wear them until they died, at which point they would then be passed on to another slave, so aging was key. “We had a great ‘distresser’ called Steve,” says Norris. He would repeatedly dye, wash and repeat the untreated cotton or linen shirts worn by the male slaves to give them that tangible grubbiness that so clearly comes through. Soil from each of the different plantation settings was also used to accurately age the clothing to match the location.
    .
    When it came to dressing the female slaves, this meant that Lupita Nyong’o's Patsey, for example, wears gowns with empire lines, which were popular in the 1820s “before hoops, which were invented to lift the heavy skirts of the legs”, says Norris, while her master’s wife is wearing crinolines under layers full skirts, which were very much in fashion at the time in which the film is set.
    .
    Of the plantation owners, Norris says it was key that they always looked “dressed for dinner”: “There was not a lot to do on a plantation, so they would always be ready for the evening’s event.” Indeed, Epp’s wife, played by Sarah Paulson, is trussed up in leg-of-mutton sleeves and decorative hair pieces for much of the film.
    .
    Edwin Epps himself, played by Michael Fassbender, was given a theme of his own. “Steve [McQueen, the director] wanted him to be romantic,” she says, so sleeves were exaggerated and Norris says she had a mental image of Fabio, the Italian model who has appeared on the cover of many a romantic novel.
    In all, Norris created around 1,000 costumes and countless shirts, though some period pieces were hired from London but one of the biggest obstacles was the heat in Louisiana, where the film was shot, and the lack of time to fit the actors and actresses.
    .
    So, what does Norris reckon of her chances on March 2? “I tend to do more realistic work – which gets me a nomination – but I usually get beaten by the beads!” she laughs.

    Angelina Jolie Helps to Raise Awareness Of Bosnia Rape Camp Victims
    ========================================================
    .
    26 February 2014 by Louisa Pritchard
    .

    She is known for her charity work. And now Angelina Jolie’s editorial debut –In the Land of Blood and Honey – is being screened in the UK to help women affected by the Bosnian rape camps.
    .
    The film, which Angelina wrote and directed, will be shown tonight at an event organised by Women For Women International.
    .
    The charity is currently running Bosnia Week to highlight the atrocities during the Bosnia war, which ended in 1995. More than 50,000 women are thought to have been abused at the ‘rape camps’. The charity is now working to provide financial aid, job training and emotional support for them.
    .
    Talking about the Bosnia war – her film follows the fallout after the war began in 1992 – Angelina said, ‘It was the deadliest war in Europe since World War II, but sometimes people forget the terrible violence that happened in our time, in our generation, to our generation.’
    .
    Women for Women International was set up to help the victims of the war, and now work in eight countries including Iraq and Afghanistan.
    .
    “Less than 20 years ago, a regional war devastated many parts of Eastern Europe, sending refugees throughout the continent and seeing women and girls disproportionately affected as they were forced into rape camps while their husbands and sons were murdered’, says Brita Fernandez Schmidt, Women for Women International’s UK Executive Director. ‘
    .
    This screening is part of a week focusing on how women have been at the heart of rebuilding the country and ensuring that the world does not forget about the women in Bosnia.”

    Kenya shows support to actress Lupita Nyong’o
    =====================================

    Posted: February 27th, 2014 | By GabiVille
    .
    She’s proven she can do no wrong on the red carpet. And Lupita Nyong’o has now managed to knock it out of the park twice in the same day.
    .
    The 30-year-old stunned in a sexy purple dress with a daring cut out and a demure orange frock at two different events in L.A. on Wednesday. The 12 Years A Slave star looked particularly flawless in the purple number at an event in her honor put on by LoveGold at the Chateau Marmont. Lupita showed off her toned arms and flaunted a bit of extra flesh in the form of a sexy cut out just above her waist. She teamed the frock with a pair of matching patent leather pumps and a black clutch.
    .
    Earlier in the day, the Kenyan native looked sensational in a bold printed dress in striking blue and orange hues at a Q&A with the Dalia Lama at the California Science Center. She has been the darling of award season not just for her fashion sense, but also for her outstanding performance in the Steve McQueen directed film.
    .
    She is nominated for Best Supporting Actress at Sunday’s Academy Awards and is a favourite to win. And her her country, Kenya, showed her love by making a banner when they held a rugby game, something she posted on her Instagram.
    .
    “I gasped when I saw this. Thank you, Kenyans at Rugby 7s Las Vegas for this GIGANTIC display of your support. #regram @mikewanguhu,” wrote the actress. – additional reporting from Daily Mail

    Watch Benedict Cumberbatch Perform MoCap Work for ‘The Desolation of Smaug’
    ================================================================
    .
    Posted on Monday, February 24th, 2014 by Russ Fischer

    .

    Rest assured that when The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits Blu-ray on April 8, there will be hours of behind the scenes footage to illustrate in exhaustive detail the process of creating the film. But of all the possible views on the process of building The Desolation of Smaug, the one we’re perhaps most keen to learn about is the process of bringing its titular dragon to life.
    .
    A new featurette shows a bit of that process, including just a bit of footage of Benedict Cumberbatch in a mo-cap suit doing some all-in physical performance for Smaug. Oh, and in case you need some size reference for Smaug, one of his creators explains that he’s twice the size of a jumbo jet. Check out the video after the break.
    THR has the video, featuring David Clayton of Weta Digital. Clayton also explained,
    .
    Using our motion capture stage, we recorded [Cumberbatch's] performances, which focused on the conversation with Bilbo sequence. Having Benedict in a mocap suit was lots of fun — for us, and hopefully for him too — and seemed to help get him immersed and hone in on the character. The translation of performance from Benedict to Smaug wasn’t a one-to-one match like you’d get from a humanoid creature. They have very different physiologies,” Clayton explained. “As animators we had to transpose the elements of Benedict’s performance that were critical to the shot, such as head nuances and facial expressions. We then built up the majority of his motion with keyframe animation (meaning that it was animated by hand).

    Why ’12 Years a Slave’ should win the Best Picture Oscar
    ======================================
    .
    February 27 at 8:00 am
    .

    A quick look at this year’s Academy Award nominees for Best Picture… Synopsis: A free black man in pre-Civil War America is kidnapped and sold into slavery in this adaptation of Solomon Northup’s memoir.
    .
    Total Nominations: 9 (Picture, Actor, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Director, Adapted Screenplay, Production Design, Costume Design, Film Editing)
    Directed by: Steve McQueen (nominated for Best Director, first nomination)
    Starring: Chiwetel Ejiofor (nominated for Best Actor, first nomination), Lupita Nyong’o (nominated for Best Supporting Actress, first nomination), Michael Fassbender (nominated for Best Supporting Actor, first nomination) Brad Pitt, Sarah Paulson
    .
    Why it should win: In the hands of Steve McQueen, what could have been a maudlin or gratuitously sentimental tale of a man’s survival against horrific odds instead became an eloquent, visually elegant example of how writing, acting, image and sound come together to create an indelible emotional experience. Juxtaposing sequences of sadistic violence with the lush beauty of a Louisiana plantation, McQueen gracefully dismantled centuries of cinematic lies about the slavery-era South, from “The Birth of a Nation” to “Gone With the Wind,” exposing the savagery underlying the moonlight and magnolias Hollywood has long sold as one of America’s most primal myths.
    .
    Why it won’t win: The tough subject matter and graphic scenes of sadistic torture in “12 Years a Slave” have led some observers to conclude that it might be too “difficult” for Academy members, who in recent years have rewarded such genteel, feel-good stories as “The King’s Speech” and “The Artist.” They may prefer to reward both the technical and commercial achievement of “Gravity.” Another theory has the vote splitting between both those films, and “American Hustle” sneaking in for the steal.
    .
    Ann Hornaday’s review: 4 stars
    “Intense, unflinching, bold in its simplicity and radical in its use of image, sound and staging, “12 Years a Slave” in many ways is the defining epic so many have longed for to examine — if not cauterize — America’s primal wound.”

    How are you my dear, weather is still freezing despite no snow so not fair lol. I hope your parts have improved?. You mentioned ‘The Big Bang Theory’ are you talking about the actress that plays Penny by any chance ? if so I can see why, she has that not beautiful but homely feel to her one of the guys you know what I mean. Bizzy I don’t think Ticky ever made any lists like that apart from hair, banging body, hair, & more hair, but saying that ironic as it may sound she never actually got a big advertising deal with a reputable hair company even in her heydays back in the 90’s. what annoys me is people know 2% on her head is real hair and the other 98% is extensions but yet they make such big deal about her hair, I think its an insult to the extensions company those suckers need to be recognise for their contributions to Tickys head.
    .
    You mentioned Paul Schiffer it was the other day I thought I say him in ‘Hugo Boss’ ad, he looks ruff, at the time I thought he made a better pairing with Cameron Diaz, I still wonder why that fizzled out considering she is a health freak, considering the reason he dumped Ticky was due to her drinking & snorting all things white while petting her dogs in her kitchen. I know Huvanes version was that the Goddess Circle didn’t approve of him, Oh hang on Bizzy I hear screaming from the ocean AGAIN.

    Bleeding heart me nah I’m more the opposite FALP what gave you that idea hard as nails here lol, anyway don’t worry, I wont, thanks as always for your kind words towards me, I’m blushing here if that’s humanly possible lol. In regards to the subject in hand, I’m just amused and part flabbergasted by this sudden surge of singling me out as if I’ve committed a crime on the JP threads , maybe in the eyes of the Trolls I have, by posting all ‘Positive JP News’ yes news that is more than two paragraphs lol. Now that is the crime of the century isn’t it FALP ?
    .
    Yes I hold my head high I have contributed in the suffering of those who hold a very low IQ levels and who are die hard Aniston fans whom only can digest 2 sentences a post, and those 2 sentences should constitute with words of Cabo, Bikini Body , Hair etc. But as I cant find such posts about the JP’s because one they ‘have a life’ and two they are ‘successful & loved at what they do not only at home but also around the world’, so the only things I can find to post are all positive & informative , the person that I cant find such things in any way or form whose called Jennifer Aniston. There always an option for the Trolls to go on the net and search her news but as they are daily parked here and refuse to leave they have to make do with the JP news, its not my fault if Aniston is vapid, dull, ugly narcissist stalker of the JP’s and who refuses to move on with her life and is thick as a plank .
    .
    FALP, I guess reading daily news about JP’s Successful Movies, their Humanitarian works, their happiness together is bound to send any insane person more insane, so yes I admit fortunately I have contributed towards the Aniston Fans turmoil further in their existing mental Illnesses every day with my nonstop posting, and exposing things what the world really thinks of the JP’s, on that note for some reason I sleep very soundly at night knowing that l have contributed towards someone’s distress. See FALP wouldn’t you say that’s the opposite of ‘bleeding heart’ lol.

    Chiwetel Ejiofor And Oprah Discuss The True Story Of ’12 Years A Slave’ (VIDEO)
    ===============================================================

    .
    Posted: 02/27/2014 8:26 am EST Updated: 02/27/2014 8:59 am EST
    .
    Chiwetel Ejiofor is nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of Solomon Northup, a free man who was sold into slavery, in “12 Years a Slave.”
    .
    Ejiofor says the “detail and the humility and the poetry,” in Northrup’s autobiography inspired his performance. While reading the script for the first time, Ejiofor says he couldn’t believe he hadn’t heard Northrup’s story before.
    .
    The film’s director, Steve McQueen, felt it was important to bring Northrup’s story to light. McQueen told The New York Times recently, “I made this film because I wanted to visualize a time in history that hadn’t been visualized that way. I wanted to see the lash on someone’s back. I wanted to see the aftermath of that psychological and physical. I feel sometimes people take slavery very lightly, to be honest.”
    .
    Ejiofor agrees McQueen accomplished that. “I think it was that combination,” he says in the above video from “Oprah’s Next Chapter.” “That combination of the physical and the psychological is such an interesting part of the film and part of the book … Solomon Northrup is a man who sort of, in one sense, believes in the beginning of the film that he is trying to regain his freedom. But he comes to realize, in a way, that actually this is all a struggle for his mind.”
    .
    “To keep his sanity,” Oprah says. “What you do so brilliantly is you allow us in to feel and experience that through Solomon Northrup,” she tells Ejiofor. “You really do.”

    Oscars 2014: For many, ’12 Years a Slave’ is too hard to watch

    ==================================================================================================
    .
    .By Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times Film CriticFebruary 27, 2014, 5:00 a.m.

    Come Sunday night, director Steve McQueen’s critically praised rendering of the true story of Solomon Northup, a free black man kidnapped and sold into slavery in the Antebellum South, may win the Academy Award for best picture.
    So why isn’t everyone talking about “12 Years a Slave” around the water cooler, on the street, over coffee? It is arguably the most revered film in recent memory that so few have seen. Those who do watch it often leave theaters in a hush, finding it difficult to explain how they feel about what they’ve witnessed on the screen.

    That matters. The cultural conversation that normally swirls around a work like “12 Years a Slave” is one of the main reasons we go to movies in the first place. It is why “word of mouth” is an industry totem, prized if it is good, feared if it is bad, confusing when it is absent.
    If anything, McQueen’s film has stopped more conversations than it’s started. And the silence is deafening. President Obama, who has acknowledged “tearing up” at “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” who hosted a White House screening of “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” remains mum on “12 Years a Slave.” As of this writing, there has been no public confirmation that the president even watched the print of the film the White House requested and the studio provided.

    .
    Indeed, many moviegoers, including avid film fans who make a habit each year of seeing all the best picture nominees, are taking a pass on “12 Years.” At the film’s first official screening for voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in October, the 1,000-seat Samuel Goldwyn Theater was a little more than half full, in contrast to “Gravity,” which packed the house a few days earlier and turned late-comers away. The explanations many give for their reluctance to see the film tend to begin with an apology that goes something like this: “I’m sorry, I know it’s an important film, but it sounds too depressing.” Or, “I know I should go see it, but I don’t think I can sit through it.” McQueen has given us a reality show we’re reluctant to watch.
    .
    “12 Years” unflinchingly takes on one unforgivable truth from our history that runs counter to the American ideal. We are the “home of the brave,” as “The Star-Spangled Banner” so emphatically boasts, but the “land of the free”? Not for nearly 100 years of the country’s formative years. And not until more than half a century after the Battle of Baltimore in 1814 inspired Francis Scott Key to pen those lyrics.

    .
    As of last weekend, “12 Years” had sold a respectable $49 million in tickets at North American box offices since it began its theatrical run Nov. 8. While some of its best-picture competitors have made less, others have made substantially more. “American Hustle,” “Captain Phillips” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” all crossed the $100-million mark in the U.S. weeks ago; “Gravity” has made more than $260 million.
    A clue to why “12 Years” is simultaneously admired and resisted, praised and passed over, respected yet not embraced came during January’s Golden Globes in a comic riff between hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. After mentioning how much she loved “12 Years a Slave” Poehler added, “I can honestly say after seeing that film, I will never look at slavery the same way again.” To which Fey shot back, “Wait, how were you looking at it?” It wasn’t just the punch line that reverberated, but the looks they exchanged in the seconds after, slightly ashamed, as if even the queens of snark had reservations about the joke.
    .
    The discomfort is not in the idea of slavery as a topic for filmmakers. “Roots,” the 1977 TV miniseries based on Alex Haley’s historical novel, was a ratings hit, much talked about, much acclaimed. Steven Spielberg’s “Amistad” in 1997, about mutiny on a slave ship, didn’t ruffle the collective conscience, or frankly grab it either. “Django Unchained,” Quentin Tarantino’s 2012 scathing slave revenge comedy, was met with waves of opinions pro and con, but little hesitation. Nominated for five Oscars, it took home two, including one for Tarantino’s script. It made more than $162 million in domestic box office.
    .
    In a time of challenging cinema, “12 Years a Slave” exists alone, an island in a stream of turbulent issues that filmmakers increasingly ask audiences to contemplate. As Solomon Northup’s book so incisively exposed, and “12 Years” so artfully and insistently reminds, even a freeman of color was at risk in 1841. A person with black skin could be reduced to a commodity without question, bartered and sold to the highest bidder. No recourse, little chance of escape.
    .
    In his slim book and with dispassionate language, Northup related the horrors he experienced as a slave and even more that he witnessed. Screenwriter John Ridley has been faithful in his adaptation, virtually no “Hollywood” flourishes added. There are no real heroes either, no white knights coming to save the day. Just one decent act by one decent man. Even Solomon, in a finely wrought Oscar-nominated portrayal by Chiwetel Ejiofor, is cast as nothing more, or less, than an honorable man enduring terrible times.
    .
    That very nod to veracity, the filmmakers’ unwillingness to create artificial martyrs, or hyper-imagined hardships, is part of the agitation. “12 Years” is not only the story of Solomon Northup, but of a quintessentially un-American institution. We the people may abhor slavery today, yet for so long it infiltrated every sector of life and livelihood in this country. Though the practice was concentrated in the South, certainly in the final years before the Civil War, slavery was not just a Southern problem. Northup’s story begins with his kidnapping in the North.

    Michelle Rodriguez has a HUGE OBSESSION with Angie – going so far as to get Angie’s prayer tattoo on her back in the exact same place. Obviously she’s influencing her new girlfriend. We all admire Angie but I think MR is a borderline stalker. At least she’s finally stopped pretending she’s not a lesbian. She’s really bummed out that Angie’s with Brad and not interested in HER.

    Brad Pitt Wears a Gimp Mask and Kisses a Dolphin in His Lost Film Debut (VIDEO)
    ==========================================================
    .
    Thu, Feb 27, 2014 at 7:50 AM

    .
    In 1988, Brad Pitt was a 24-year-old wannabe actor scraping by with uncredited bits in Less Than Zero, tiny guest roles in Head of the Class, Growing Pains, and Dallas, and a side gig wearing a chicken mascot costume outside El Pollo Loco. He needed a memorable starring role. And he got one in the Yugoslavian drama The Dark Side of the Sun, his first (and forgotten) film.
    .
    Pitt was desperate to beat out River Phoenix for role of Rick, a rich kid with a fatal allergy to the sun. If his skin gets in the light, he’ll be dead in three days. And so his father (TV actor Guy Boyd) forces him to wear a head-to-toe black leather gimp costume with a zip up the back of his skin-tight mask, while relocating the family to the coast of then-Yugoslavia where he pays a faith healer to slap Rick with branches. But under the mask, we can tell Rick is a lovely boy – right after this opening scene, he pulls over his bike to rescue a puppy.
    .

    Shortcut When Pitt found out he got the part, rumor is he did somersaults on the sidewalk outside producer Andjelo Arandjelovic’s office. The role had everything: tragedy, romance, sacrifice, and shirtlessness. Plus, he’d get to ride a Kawasaki KLR650 all over Budva, Yugoslavia (now part of Montenegro). Pitt didn’t even have a passport. He’d only once before flown on a plane. But the Oklahoma-born, Missouri-raised giant kid was thrilled for the adventure – and he’d get paid $1,523 a week for seven weeks.
    .
    Yugoslavia was on the brink of a decade-long civil war. Tension surrounded the set. “They were talking about it and you could see the hatred,” Pitt later told the Hollywood Reporter. “It was like the Hatfields and McCoys – as soon as they heard a name, it put them on the other side of the fence, and that left an indelible mark on me.” Still, Pitt stayed focused on his big break.
    .
    He was punctual and enthusiastic, an adorable American goober both on-set and on-screen, where he chirps lines like, “God bless Captain Crunch!” Prehistoric Pitt, a kid who’d never done a press tour, is at once preternaturally comfortable in front of the camera, and jumpy with nervous energy.
    .
    When a housemaid reaches over him to hand his father a package, he impulsively nips at her wrist. And when the time comes where Rick must brave a masquerade ball – just one of the film’s Fellinisque foreign touches – to woo a traveling actress (Melrose Place’s Cheryl Pollak), he woos aways despite being handicapped by having to hide his glorious assets.
    .
    Perversely for young Pitt, still three years away from the Thelma & Louise breakout role that would crown him the ’90s biggest stud, he has to keep his face and body hidden. He’s both Beauty and the Beast. Here, he begs his father to let him take off his protective mask. You can hear how hard it is for him to talk through his leather fetish wear – and hear how high his voice used to be, like modern Pitt crossbred with Alvin and the Chipmunks.
    .
    At minute 29, we get a glimpse of his right hand. At minute 35, we finally see his face – in a big Hollywood reveal, the world gets their first glamour shot of Brad Pitt’s beauty. He’s so deliriously handsome that the shock is twice as shocking: like Snow White, he’s all red lips and pale skin and big (um, brown?) eyes.

    .
    I was just on a blog by a bosnian woman http://bit.ly/1ccOdYI
    (i was doing a google search for any updates about bakira in the wake of all the good that has happened as a result of Angie’smovie) and while this blog seemed, at the start of the thread about the making of the movie and the controversy at the time, to be taking a middle ground, it turns out that the blog owner was just another shill for bakira. Now she too has been struck dumb.
    .
    Anyhooo, my point is, just as some people were saying, bakira allowed a little power to go to her head and completely overshadowed the work she had been doing on behalf of bosnian rape victims for all those years. Now she is too proud and ashamed, I think, to let her voice be heard re the new UN resolution against rape as a weapon of war, ALL BECAUSE OF ANGIE’S MOVIE AND HER ADVOCACY!
    .
    B!tches are silent when they used to be so vocal when they were spreading lies about the movie.

    I think there are a collective conscious problem of deep shame, blindness and denial in any country that was a slave country in other times.

    After reading this in the LAtimes (post by Phool):

    “…Indeed, many moviegoers, including avid film fans who make a habit each year of seeing all the best picture nominees, are taking a pass on “12 Years.” At the film’s first official screening for voting members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in October, the 1,000-seat Samuel Goldwyn Theater was a little more than half full, in contrast to “Gravity,” which packed the house a few days earlier and turned late-comers away.
    The explanations many give for their reluctance to see the film tend to begin with an apology that goes something like this: “I’m sorry, I know it’s an important film, but it sounds too depressing.” Or, “I know I should go see it, but I don’t think I can sit through it.”
    McQueen has given us a reality show we’re reluctant to watch….”

    I was surprised and almost shocked. Why people don´t want to see 12YAS ? After all the awards, why only 49 millions in box office in USA and 79 millions in the world ? Why people don´t talk about the movie, just like they talk about “Gravity” ?

    It´s intriguing and make me think about “shame”, “denial” and “blindness”. People don´t want to talk about something that expose her true and cruel history. Not only in USA.

    Something is not right when the President or any other Politics talk and praised other Oscar nominees but about “12 years a slave” they don´t say nothing.

    It appears there are a silence imposed in the VIPs and in the media and in the society about SLaves issues and about “12yaSlave” discussion in the media and in the public.

    This is not very good for the Oscars. I think the Academy don´t want to give too much visibility and talk to 12yaSlave and if the people with power to vote don´t see the movie and don´t talk about the movie they will not vote for them.

    I think 12yaSlave will not win any Oscar if this don´t change.

    Angelina Jolie wows Oscar rehearsal actors

    By SANDY COHEN | Associated Press – 32 mins ago

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — To the world, she’s a humanitarian, superstar actress and half of Hollywood’s most glamorous couple.

    But to the workers who met Angelina Jolie Thursday at Oscar rehearsals, she was just “Angie.”

    The 38-year-old Oscar winner, who was honored with the film academy’s Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award last year, came to the Dolby Theater to run through the lines she’ll say in front of millions on Sunday. Afterward, she hung around chatting to show producers and introduced herself as “Angie” to a group of college students serving as trophy carriers this year.

    “You’ll help make the night a fun night,” she said warmly to the star-struck students. One told her, “You were great out there.”

    “I didn’t fall!” Jolie replied with a smile, confessing that the silver peep-toe pumps she paired with capri pants and a sweater for the rehearsal are her actual show-day shoes.

    “After you’ve done this a few times, you learn to wear the shoes you’re going to present in,” she said.

    She also learned she needed the teleprompter text to be made a bit larger.

    “I used to wear glasses,” she said.

    Jolie presented an award on stage, and when a rehearsal actor stepped up to claim it, she gave him a hug.

    “For this rehearsal only,” he said, “I am one lucky *******.”

    12 Years a Slave is Now MANDATORY. Look at that impact.

    The National School Boards Association has made it mandatory that U.S. public high schools add Oscar-nominated feature “12 Years a Slave” to their curriculum.

    The NSBA along with talk show host Montel Williams have partnered with New Regency, Penguin Books and the filmmakers to distribute copies of the film, the eponymous book and study guide. The initiative is modeled against one Williams previously launched to distribute the Civil War film “Glory” to public high schools that ultimately led to “The Montel Williams Show.”

    Steve McQueen’s historical drama is nominated for 9 Academy Awards, including best picture.

    “When Hollywood is at its best, the power of the movies can be harnessed into a powerful educational tool,” Williams said in a statement. “This film uniquely highlights a shameful period in American history, and in doing so will evoke in students a desire to not repeat the evils of the past while inspiring them to dream big of a better and brighter future.”

    The distribution will commence September 2014 in line with the new school year.

    How Lupita Nyong’o Already Won Awards Season

    “12 Years a Slave” star Lupita Nyong’o is favored to take home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress on Sunday — with only “American Hustle” star Jennifer Lawrence still standing as a possible contender. But whether she gets the big prize or not, the breakout beauty already has this awards season shebang in the bag.
    From her oh-so-exciting red carpet style choices to the flawless way she’s handled the massive attention her first movie role has brought, Nyong’o has been nothing short of a winner from the get-go.
    Let’s review some of her best moves (so far), shall we?
    First and foremost — and this pretty much goes without saying by now — Nyong’o definitely brought her A-game to Steve McQueen’s powerful film, with her portrayal of poor Patsey, the most favored and yet most brutalized slave on a plantation ruled by a sadistic master (Michael Fassbender).
    Even more impressive, however, is how very composed Nyong’o has been throughout all of the hubbub that comes with chasing an Academy Award.
    Her speeches have been just the right blend; sounding prepared yet still off-the-cuff, deferential; forgoing cloying false modesty — and not to mention, adorable as can be.
    When collecting her Screen Actors Guild award, she shared a delightful little anecdote about the moment she first got her part in the film, saying “Daddy, do you know who Brad Pitt is? I’m going to be in a movie with him! He said, ‘I don’t know him personally, but I’m glad you got a job.’”
    Then there was the time Nyong’o paid clever tribute to her co-nominee Julia Roberts from the podium at the Critics’ Choice Awards, quipping, “Julia, thank you so much for making my brother the coolest guy in school by taking a picture with him.”
    Clearly the girl knows how to earn some sincere smiles from her audience; but the fun doesn’t stop there. The 30-year-old actress also knows how to turn heads.
    Since bursting into the zeitgeist, Nyong’o has very quickly established herself as a fashion icon for this season, unafraid of wearing vibrant colors and bold designs and opting for unique hair styles with each appearance
    Come Sunday evening, it’s a guarantee that she will be one of the top arrivals people watch for on the red carpet. It’s hard to imagine she won’t nail it from head to toe.
    Even when the attention coming her way has been of the less desirable sort, Nyongo has been all class.
    Consider the rumor that she and Best Supporting Actor frontrunner Jared Leto were in some sort of budding relationship. Instead of getting all worked up over her personal life becoming the stuff of tabloid fiction, she went and had a little fun with it on “Ellen” last week, joking along, “Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up. That was the last thing I heard.”
    That’s some impressive maneuvering for someone who literally just started her career in the movie biz.
    At this point, with all things considered, she’s being most closely compared to Jennifer Lawrence, who also gracefully catapulted into the spotlight a few short years ago when one of her first major movie roles (in Debra Granik’s “Winter’s Bone”) similarly thrust her squarely into the Academy limelight.
    Like Lawrence, Nyong’o has been an intelligent, mature gem about it all, and seems to keenly realize what the buzz could mean for her career going forward, if she plays her cards right.
    “I’m curious, I’m excited, I’m ready,” she told ABC News about what comes next for her after the season ends.
    So are we, Lupita Nyong’o. So are we.

    ’12 Years a Slave’ actress Lupita Nyong’o is Hollywood’s new fixation

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – Lupita Nyong’o is preparing herself for normalcy. After the frenzy that’s followed her gripping performance in “12 Years a Slave,” she wants to be ready for life back home in New York.

    “I try to keep my regimen — rest, water, eat well, workout — so that when this is all over, I don’t experience a total hangover,” she says, taking a bite of scrambled eggs in a recent interview at a Beverly Hills cafe.

    She hasn’t yet accepted that her life may never be the same. “I have a very ostrich mentality,” she says. “I feel like I have my head in the sand so no one can see me.”

    Before playing slave Patsey in Steve McQueen’s brutal tale of a free black man kidnapped into slavery in the 19th century South, Nyong’o was virtually unknown. Now, as a supporting actress Oscar nominee, she’s become a breakout star.

    When she received the call from McQueen saying she had landed the role, “I was so elated,” she recalls. “But then I immediately panicked. I was so scared.”

    No wonder; this would be her first major role after attending the Yale School of Drama. Yet shooting the film gave her the confidence she needed coming out of school. “It was an amazing feeling,” she says.

    Now, with all eyes on what she’ll do next, the actress refuses to stress about securing another role that’s equally as celebrated.

    “The bar has been set very high externally and internally,” she says. “But I don’t want to feed into that pressure of expectation. This film was so fulfilling and artistic. I’ve tasted that and I obviously want to experience that kind of creative fulfilment again, but I also know that I can’t replicate that. I want a varied acting experience and that may include some failure and that’s healthy.”

    Actually, Nyong’o's next film is already in the can and ready for release on Feb. 28: She plays a flight attendant opposite Liam Neeson in the action-thriller “Non-Stop.” ”It was what I needed to do,” she says. “It was the perfect antidote to ’12 Years a Slave.’ It was a different genre with different demands. It was very technical and fun.”

    Growing up in Kenya, Nyong’o says her parents encouraged her and her five siblings to “find out what we were called on this earth to do and then do it to excellence.”

    Before former Kenya president Daniel Arap Moi allowed multi-party politics in 1991, Nyong’o’ father, Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o, was an advocate for democratic reform, opposing Kenya’s autocratic regime. Then a political science teacher, Nyong’o's father relocated his family to Mexico City for their safety. It was there that Nyong’o was born, yet her family returned to Kenya before she was a year old.

    Nyong’o says her parents have been supportive of her Hollywood success but have also taken the excitement in stride. “It’s nice to have parents like that because they’re thrilled,” she says. “But they’re not shaken by it.”

    Lupita Nyong’o On the Fear That Guided Her 12 Years A Slave Performance
    How the Golden Globe-nominated actress’s first on-screen role made her the talk of awards season.

    Lupita Nyong’o, featured in the Vanities section of our March issue, shares an alma mater with Meryl Streep, Patricia Clarkson, Angela Bassett, and Sigourney Weaver, but her road to the Yale School of Drama, and her breakthrough performance in 12 Years a Slave, was unlike any other. Born in Mexico to Kenyan parents in political exile, Nyong’o was raised in Kenya before enrolling in Hampshire College and eventually the Yale School of Drama. Her first screen role is a powerful, unforgettable one, playing the slave Patsey who is befriended by Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Solomon Northup, a freeman living in upstate New York who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in 1841.

    Enduring onscreen whipping, rape, and the deepest possible despair, Nyong’o admits it was hard to leave Patsey behind after each day of shooting, but she thanks the “genius” director Steve McQueen for “instill[ing] in you the fear of God, because you want to live up to his standards.” Below she talks more about her road to 12 Years a Slave, and the “athletics of the heart” she’s learned from her acting education.

    VF: You were born in Mexico but raised in Kenya. Tell me about that

    Lupita Nyong’o: Yeah, so my father was a professor of political science and also a young politician fighting for democracy in Kenya, and when things got ugly, he went into political exile in Mexico. Then I moved back to Kenya shortly after I turned one, and I grew up in Kenya. I spent some time back in Mexico at 16 because my parents thought it would be prudent for me to learn Spanish, because I held a Mexican passport. So that was a formative time. Then I came to the U.S. for school. I went to Hampshire College, where I studied African and film studies. Eventually I made my way to Yale for a master’s in acting.

    Hampshire is a very unique school. It’s not really on the radar for many international students, and there are no grades. It’s very unconventional.

    Very, very unconventional. I was quite nervous about that sort of thing, but what Hampshire is really good for is teaching you to be self-reliant and self-motivated, and I discovered that I had it in me to have a dream, make it a goal, and make it happen. That’s what I experienced with my final thesis project, In My Genes, which was a documentary about the experience of being a person with albinism in Kenya. I don’t think I would have discovered that kind of self-sufficiency had I gone to a more structured school, where people told you what to learn, how to be, and how to go about it.

    Was it something at Hampshire that made you say, “I’m going to go to Yale and pursue a career as an actress?”

    Well, the acting thing had always, always, always been my passion since I can remember, since I was conscious. My mother talked about the stories I used to spin as a child of three, before I started school. I would tell this story about what school I went to and what uniform I wore and who I talked to at lunchtime and what I ate, and my mother was like, ”This girl does not even go to school.” So the world of make-believe was always, I think, in my life. It wasn’t until I was at Hampshire, and a friend of mine, who I had done a production of Romeo and Juliet with when I was 14, got into the Yale School of Drama. That was the first time it occurred to me that I could train as an actor. He was the one who made it possible for me to even think that this could be my journey because he was Kenyan and he got into Yale, so that was really encouraging, but it took years for me to come to actual terms with that, because I didn’t know anyone growing up who was a successful actor who was making a living off of being just an actor. I didn’t know anyone. I was shy about admitting that that’s what I wanted to do with my life.

    Especially with your background, I can imagine it wasn’t the easiest thing to tell your parents that you want to be an actress.

    My immediate family was always very supportive. It was my own fear of the rest of the world not accepting me, the rest of our society not accepting my wish to be an actor. I remember people saying to me, “I hope you grow out of this and get a real [job], do something real. A real profession. Like be a teacher or a businesswoman or a lawyer or a doctor. That’s what people do. They do their jobs.”

    10 Things About… 12 Years A Slave star Lupita Nyong’o

    After little previous US acting work, Lupita Nyong’o has shot to fame for her harrowing performance in the award-winning 12 Years A Slave. The actress has picked up an Oscar nomination and several other awards for her vivid portrayal of Patsey, a slave who befriends Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) on a cotton plantation in New Orleans.

    She featured in Vogue’s Rising Style Stars of 2014 and designers are falling over themselves to dress her for her stunning red carpet appearances – even Emma Thompson can’t seem to stay away.

    So here are ten things you may not have know about 12 Years A Slave’s breakthrough star.

    1. Lupita Amondi Nyong’o was born in Mexico in 1983. Her parents soon moved back to their native Kenya, but sent Nyong’o to Mexico when she was 16 to learn Spanish. Her father Peter Anyang’ Nyong’o is currently the Senator for Kisumu County in Kenya.

    2. Not just an actor, the multi-talented Lupita wrote, directed and produced a film about the albino population in Kenya, In My Genes. She made the film as her final thesis while studying film and theatre studies at Hampshire College, Massachusetts.

    3. Lupita went on to study acting at the prestigious Yale School of Drama, the alumni of which include Meryl Streep, Sigourney Weaver and Angela Bassett. Fairly intimidating. But she clearly kept her cool, as a few weeks before she had even graduated she was offered the role of Patsey in 12 Years A Slave.

    4. Gamers rejoice! Nyong’o has not just confessed to playing video games, but really good video games. She told Jimmy Kimmel that she barely counts her first trip to the US in 1999 because she spent the whole time playing Final Fantasy VIII.

    5. Unthinkable though it may be, Lupita didn’t always have her trademark buzzcut. At the age of 19 she had shoulder length hair, and says she dyed it regularly – blue, green, and apparently maroon! Fed up of the salon time and chemicals, she made a spur of the moment decision and shaved it all off. Speaking about the cut, she said: “It felt so liberating. I discovered the shape of my head wasn’t so bad! Ever since then, I just don’t have the patience to grow it again.”

    we’ve spelled it. Lupita says her dad coined the term, and that it describes a sense of wonder that surpasses human understanding and description.

    8. She may wear keep fashion columns in business with her memorable red carpet appearances, but it’s all the work of her stylist: Nyong’o hates to shop. Speaking to Arise Entertainment 360, she said she even finds it “overwhelming” to even walk into a store.

    9. Her skin may be flawless now, but Nyong’o suffered from a skin disorder when she was growing up. Concerned, her mother went as far as to travel to Madagascar to get some medicinal herbs. Apparently they didn’t smell so good but clearly they seem to have done the trick. When’s the next flight to Madagascar?

    10. As a child, Lupita kept a dead snake as a pet. And no, you didn’t read that wrong. A deadly grey mamba was found, alive, in her house and killed – because no-one wants a snake in their house, right? Wrong. Nyong’o found the deceased snake and took a liking to it, so she took it to her science class and put it in a preservative. Apparently she would then use it to terrify her friends. You may be feeling rather othecklified.

    Best dressed Lupita Nyong’o brings her proud mother to the BAFTAs (and she’s oh so stylish too!)

    She could have had her pick of the young showbiz hunks to escort her down the red carpet.
    But Lupita Nyong’o is clearly a mummy’s girl, as she preferred to let her mother Dorothy experience the glitz first hand at the 2014 BAFTAs on Sunday.
    The 12 Years A Slave actress looked like she was having a great time as she lived it up at the star-studded event in London.

    And she had reason to smile as she arrived for the thrilling awards spectacle, as she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress and the hotly-contested Rising Star award.
    Unfortunately for the 30-year-old actress, she ended up leaving empty-handed after losing out to American Hustle favourite Jennifer Lawrence and 21-year-old British actor Will Poulter respectively.
    However 12 Years did fare well overall, as it won the coveted best picture award, with star Chiwetel Ejiofor also scooping best actor.
    Lupita did manage to look positively ravishing thanks to her impressive emerald green silk fishtail-hem gown by Christian Dior.
    And Delightful Dorothy looked almost as good in a more conservative ensemble of turquoise blazer and complimentary blue maxi-dress.
    The actress was born in Mexico and was initially raised in the North American country while her parents were political refugees after fleeing their native Kenya.

    Phool. Says:

    Chiwetel Ejiofor is nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of Solomon Northup, a free man who was sold into slavery, in “12 Years a Slave.”

    Ejiofor says the “detail and the humility and the poetry,” in Northrup’s autobiography inspired his performance. While reading the script for the first time, Ejiofor says he couldn’t believe he hadn’t heard Northrup’s story before.

    The film’s director, Steve McQueen, felt it was important to bring Northrup’s story to light. McQueen told The New York Times recently, “I made this film because I wanted to visualize a time in history that hadn’t been visualized that way. I wanted to see the lash on someone’s back. I wanted to see the aftermath of that psychological and physical. I feel sometimes people take slavery very lightly, to be honest.”

    Ejiofor agrees McQueen accomplished that. “I think it was that combination,” he says in the above video from “Oprah’s Next Chapter.” “That combination of the physical and the psychological is such an interesting part of the film and part of the book … Solomon Northrup is a man who sort of, in one sense, believes in the beginning of the film that he is trying to regain his freedom. But he comes to realize, in a way, that actually this is all a struggle for his mind.”

    “To keep his sanity,” Oprah says.

    “What you do so brilliantly is you allow us in to feel and experience that through Solomon Northrup,” she tells Ejiofor. “You really do.”

    “Oprah’s Next Chapter” airs on OWN.

    Chiwetel Ejiofor on responsibility and the necessity of violence in ’12 Years a Slave’

    Chiwetel Ejiofor’s recent BAFTA win for Best Actor was a sweet victory for the 36-year-old actor, and not just because it came on home turf. Eight years previously, the Londoner scored (and lost) his first BAFTA nod in the Rising Star category. Last Sunday’s win, atop a slew of recent honors for his imposing turn as freeman-turned-slave Solomon Northup in “12 Years a Slave” — including, of course, his first Oscar nomination — underlined the fact that his star has now risen. Long a promising standout in films as diverse as “Dirty Pretty Things,” “Kinky Boots” and “Redbelt,” the stage-trained star has now asserted himself as a leading man of formidable presence and intelligence.

    Ejiofor caught up with us by phone from New Zealand — where he’s currently shooting Craig Zobel’s sci-fi project “Z for Zachariah” alongside Chris Pine and Margot Robbie — to discuss his approach to Steve McQueen’s film, its personal impact on him and his briefly-held reservations about taking on the role.

    ********

    HitFix: This is a film that elicits visceral emotional reactions from viewers. Even after having lived with it for so long, was it a jolt when you first saw the finished product?

    Chiwetel Ejiofor: Normally, if you’re lucky, the idea of a film you have in your head is more or less what you get back when you see it after the editing and the whole post-production process. This was very different, however, since the final product was so far past anything I had even imagined: the style of it, the cinematography, the feel of it, the depth of passion. Every component of it just comes together in such an overwhelming way. So when I first saw it, I became entirely caught up in the story, as if I was hearing it for the first time, as if I wasn’t even a part of it.

    The script is written with a great love for language. There’s an elevation and formality to it that’s quite unusual in contemporary film. As a classically trained actor, did you find that?

    Related

    Steve McQueen on the right to pursue happiness and ’12 Years a Slave’
    ‘This is a story about America.’

    I really responded to the language in the script. There’s a poetry and a humility to the way Solomon writes, and the way John Ridley has interpreted it, that has a sort of classical refrain and restraint. That really moved and engaged me. It definitely reminded me of a more classical text.

    How familiar were you, if at all, with Solomon Northup’s story beforehand?

    Well, I came on board about a year before we started shooting. Steve had sent me the script the previous summer, so I had lived with it for a while. I had never heard of Solomon Northup or his book; I didn’t even know anything about the idea of kidnapping people from the north and selling them into slavery. Once I was familiar with the book, of course, it seemed so much less surprising, like something everyone should know about. One thing that’s been particularly amazing about this process has been bringing the book back into the public consciousness. It’s such a vital historical record; it’d be tragic if it were lost or forgotten.

    When doing a historical and biographical project of this nature, how extensive is your research process? Do you consume everything you can, or can that stifle intuition?

    You do as much research as you can for any project. Obviously if you’re doing a historical drama, so much of it is just there: Solomon wrote directly about his experience, but also about his process. So much is available to you there that isn’t available in other contexts. As an actor, that’s a beautiful gift; it makes you want to play the part just to understand it. But obviously you also want to know about the time, the geography, the references. I used the book as a template, but could also bring to it my own knowledge of the slave trade, acquired over years. I’ve always been a believer in research. It’s great to have an instinctual human reaction to a character, too, of course, but it has to be countered with knowledge and understanding.

    How heavy is the burden of responsibility when taking on a project like this? Do you feel you’re playing more than a character, or try to put that out of your mind?

    Initially I felt that responsibility very sharply, and it actually gave me pause before doing the project. The idea of making a film – a film that I had certainly never seen before – about the slave experience was a huge responsibility. It’s a project that requires a wider understanding of the geopolitical nature of the slave trade, of historical and modern-day racism. That was a lot of pressure. But I came to realize that I was thinking with the wrong side of my head. My responsibility in the film was to Solomon Northup himself, to play him as accurately as I could based on the information I had, and not to worry about the wider implications. So that simplified it for me, and allowed me to approach it in an open way.

    How Lupita Nyong’o Already Won Awards Season
    “12 Years a Slave” star Lupita Nyong’o is favored to take home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress on Sunday — with only “American Hustle” star Jennifer Lawrence still standing as a possible contender. But whether she gets the big prize or not, the breakout beauty already has this awards season shebang in the bag.
    From her oh-so-exciting red carpet style choices to the flawless way she’s handled the massive attention her first movie role has brought, Nyong’o has been nothing short of a winner from the get-go.
    Let’s review some of her best moves (so far), shall we?
    First and foremost — and this pretty much goes without saying by now — Nyong’o definitely brought her A-game to Steve McQueen’s powerful film, with her portrayal of poor Patsey, the most favored and yet most brutalized slave on a plantation ruled by a sadistic master (Michael Fassbender).
    Even more impressive, however, is how very composed Nyong’o has been throughout all of the hubbub that comes with chasing an Academy Award.
    Her speeches have been just the right blend; sounding prepared yet still off-the-cuff, deferential; forgoing cloying false modesty — and not to mention, adorable as can be.
    When collecting her Screen Actors Guild award, she shared a delightful little anecdote about the moment she first got her part in the film, saying “Daddy, do you know who Brad Pitt is? I’m going to be in a movie with him! He said, ‘I don’t know him personally, but I’m glad you got a job.’”
    Then there was the time Nyong’o paid clever tribute to her co-nominee Julia Roberts from the podium at the Critics’ Choice Awards, quipping, “Julia, thank you so much for making my brother the coolest guy in school by taking a picture with him.”
    Clearly the girl knows how to earn some sincere smiles from her audience; but the fun doesn’t stop there. The 30-year-old actress also knows how to turn heads.
    Since bursting into the zeitgeist, Nyong’o has very quickly established herself as a fashion icon for this season, unafraid of wearing vibrant colors and bold designs and opting for unique hair styles with each appearance
    Come Sunday evening, it’s a guarantee that she will be one of the top arrivals people watch for on the red carpet. It’s hard to imagine she won’t nail it from head to toe.
    Even when the attention coming her way has been of the less desirable sort, Nyongo has been all class.
    Consider the rumor that she and Best Supporting Actor frontrunner Jared Leto were in some sort of budding relationship. Instead of getting all worked up over her personal life becoming the stuff of tabloid fiction, she went and had a little fun with it on “Ellen” last week, joking along, “Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up. That was the last thing I heard.”
    That’s some impressive maneuvering for someone who literally just started her career in the movie biz.
    At this point, with all things considered, she’s being most closely compared to Jennifer Lawrence, who also gracefully catapulted into the spotlight a few short years ago when one of her first major movie roles (in Debra Granik’s “Winter’s Bone”) similarly thrust her squarely into the Academy limelight.
    Like Lawrence, Nyong’o has been an intelligent, mature gem about it all, and seems to keenly realize what the buzz could mean for her career going forward, if she plays her cards right.
    “I’m curious, I’m excited, I’m ready,” she told ABC News about what comes next for her after the season ends.
    So are we, Lupita Nyong’o. So are we.

    Behind The Scenes: ’12 Years a Slave’
    ================================

    8 hours ago
    .
    “12 Years a Slave” is up for a whopping nine Oscars at this year’s Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor, Best Director for Steve McQueen, and Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong’o.
    .
    The Oscar-nominated flick was filmed in various locations in Hollywood South in 2012 including Lake Pontchartrain and Destrehan Plantation. The majority of the film was shot at Felicite Plantation, which is the sister plantation to St. Joseph Plantation in Vacherie.
    .
    “You can feel the energy here, from the trees, plants, and spirits still here. The plantation would give us the most of what we needed for the main character. Such a marvelous place,” Gerard Sellers, Location Manager for “12 Years a Slave”, said.
    .
    “12 Years a Slave” is set on a Louisiana plantation in the 1800′s. It’s based on Solomon Northup’s biography about his horrifying experiences as a once free man, sold into slavery.
    .
    Detail was important for Sellers and his crew. John Collins helped run day to day operations and worked closely with Brad Pitt.
    .
    ((((((The one driving engine in making this a success is Brad Pitt and I don’t think people should forget that,” Collins said.))))
    .
    A key scene between Pitt and Chiwetel Ejiofor’s character, Solomon took place in a gazebo, which was built exclusively for the movie.
    .
    “This is the part of the movie where hope came in and when Solomon found his one ally. This is where he got his freedom,” Collins said.
    .
    Felicite Plantation was definitely more than a backdrop. It’s a 3-mile stretch of land, which became a silent character of it’s own.
    .
    “That spirit has carried over to the success of the movie,” Sellers said.
    .
    The mansion on property was built in 1847. Tune into the 86th annual Academy Awards on WGNO this Sunday.

    Second shift schools offer hope to young Syrians
    ==========================================
    .
    News Stories, 24 February 2014
    .
    ZGHARTA, Lebanon, UNHCR – “Maliki my love,” sings Omar, a young Syrian boy. It’s a popular song in Arabic, but the declaration of love to his favourite Lebanese teacher, Maliki, is a special addition.
    Children from all over Syria have had their childhoods interrupted by the war in their homeland. For Omar, there’s now a glimmer of hope. The refugee is thriving in a new school in Zgharta, north-Lebanon. The school building is a sanctuary for Omar and his peers – children’s art adorns the walls, and the teachers exude kindness and enthusiasm for their pupils, despite doing double shifts to help cope with the extra demand.
    .
    With nearly 2.5 million registered refugees in the region, nearly half of whom are under 18 years of age, the pressure to provide education opportunities has been immense. In Lebanon, a third of the more than 930,000 Syrian refugees are of primary school age
    .
    While trying to accommodate the new arrivals, local schools reached saturation point and new students were unable to enrol. “I have seen classes in the first shift where there wasn’t space for one more desk,” said Bathoul Ahmed, a UNHCR public information officer.
    .
    A solution, for more than 27,000 Syrian children across Lebanon, has been found in the 74 Lebanese schools now running a second shift to allow more Syrian youngsters to continue with their education. The programme was piloted in the town of Arsal last year and launched across the country in November by the Ministry of Education with the support of UNHCR.
    .
    Its success has been down to the dedication of the Lebanese teachers, like Omar’s favourite, Maliki, who ensure that the Syrian children receive the same level of education as their Lebanese peers. Students even receive Lebanese public school diplomas, ensuring their education is recognised.
    .
    Although he is seven, Omar had never attended primary school before enrolling here in Zgharta. In class, he sits with his older sister, Majed, who watches over him protectively — two of his other siblings are in another class. Studying helps them think of other things than their hometown of Homs, which they fled more than a year ago.
    .
    The fact many Syrian children have been out of education for so long has led to the introduction of accelerated learning programmes for 15,000 students, to try and help them claw back some of the lost years and get their education back on track.
    .
    Schools running two shifts provide classes in Arabic, French, Maths, Science, Civil Society and Geography and take students between the ages of six and 14. After this, it’s hoped that students will be fluent enough in French to enter the less crowded mainstream secondary education system in the country if they wish to continue their studies.
    .
    French language is popular with the children; it is Omar’s favourite subject. He has picked up many words and phrases in the month he has been attending school, even reciting the names of shapes and numbers in front of the class.
    .
    With 270,000 school-aged children registered with UNHCR in Lebanon, there is still work to do. Last month, UNHCR, UNICEF, Save the Children and other partner organisations appealed for £600 million for the “No Lost Generation” campaign to fund the delivery of a strategy for education and protection for children affected by the Syrian conflict.
    .
    Throughout the 2013-14 school year, it is hoped another 10 schools will open, giving an additional 4,000 pupils across Lebanon the chance to resume their education. If it makes them as happy Omar, it is worth the £350 per year that it costs to educate a child.
    .
    “I like school a lot,” he says. Although he loves riding his bike, it cannot compare to classes: “I just wait until 2pm, until I can come to school. I do have some friends – Ali and Ahmed and Hussein – but I prefer the days when I have school.”
    .
    Across the region, meanwhile, more than 550,000 Syrian children are enrolled in learning activities in the main host countries – Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan and Turkey. In Iraqi Kurdistan, the Ministry of Education runs second shifts in seven schools in the city of Erbil.

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 20 /CSRwire/ – The Pro Bono Institute (PBI) has selected Executive Vice President and General Counsel Brad Smith and the Department of Legal and Corporate Affairs at Microsoft Corporation as the recipient of the 2014 Laurie D. Zelon Pro Bono Award for their outstanding commitment to pro bono legal services. The award will be presented at the PBI Annual Conference Reception at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., on March 6.
    .
    Led by Smith, Microsoft’s legal department of more than 1,000 legal, business, and corporate professionals in 55 countries has developed and supported numerous pro bono projects and played a major role in addressing the critical legal needs of the most vulnerable.
    .
    “We applaud Brad and the legal department at Microsoft for their steadfast commitment and inventive approaches to pro bono legal services,” PBI President and CEO Esther F. Lardent said. “Their unwavering efforts to aid the under-represented are admirable.”
    .
    An outstanding initiative has been Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), which Smith co-founded with the U.N. Refugee Agency Special Envoy Angelina Jolie in 2008.
    .
    KIND finds pro bono attorneys at major law firms, corporations, and law schools to represent children who come to the U.S. without a parent or guardian in search of safety and security. Microsoft attorneys have been key in this effort, volunteering their time and talents through KIND’s Seattle office – formerly Volunteer Advocates for Immigrant Justice (VAIJ) – and representing many of these children in their deportation proceedings.
    .
    KIND has been referred more than 5,500 unaccompanied children since its founding and has trained more than 6,000 attorneys to represent these children. KIND has also been successful in advocating for critical changes in U.S. law, policy, and practice to improve the treatment and protection of unaccompanied children and helping children return to Guatemala safely and sustainably through an innovative pilot project.
    .
    Smith was inspired to create KIND based on the success of the Seattle-based VAIJ, an initiative he founded a decade ago, with the American Bar Association’s Commission on Immigration that works to help immigrants in the Seattle area. Over the past decade, volunteers with VAIJ, including hundreds of Microsoft legal staff and others, have served thousands of immigrants, both children and adults, and helped hundreds attain lawful immigration status and security from abuse and persecution.
    Microsoft’s Department of Legal and Corporate Affairs’ other pro bono work includes drafting disaster relief provisions for global relief organizations and providing transactional legal advice to social entrepreneurs.
    .
    “At Microsoft, we believe it is our duty to extend our pro bono services to those who need it most in our communities locally and abroad,” Smith said. “We thank PBI for recognizing our dedication to serving some of the world’s most vulnerable groups.”

    Kevin Hart, 12 Years a Slave Honored at NAACP Image Awards
    ================================================
    .
    The comedian and the award-winning film were among the many recognized at the NAACP’s 45th Image Awards
    .
    evin Hart was named Entertainer of the Year while “12 Years a Slave” racked up another four awards including for motion picture at the NAACP Image Awards, which were held Saturday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium.
    Hart said he was a “real mama’s boy” and dedicated his prize to his mother, who recently passed away.
    .
    Steve McQueen and writer John Ridley won kudos for “12 Years” during a non-televised portion of the show Friday, while supporting actress Lupita Nyong’o said she was honored to win for a film ”that has inspired discourse long overdue.”
    .
    Forest Whitaker and David Oyelowo were honored for their roles in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” and Angela Bassett won the lead actress prize for “Black Nativity.” Whitaker was also honored with the NAACP Chairman’s Award. “I’m one of those with a funny accent and an African name,” Oyelowo referencing emcee Anthony Anderson’s earlier jokes about Brit actors with their accents and African names in his speech who cross the Pond to grab roles in Hollywood.
    .
    Meanwhile, Whitaker quoted a song from Nat King Cole, “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is to love and be loved.”
    .
    On the television side, Hart and his BET show “Real Husbands of Hollywood” were honored for comedy, while Kerry Washington, Joe Morton and ABC’s “Scandal” picked up three awards for drama. Since showrunner Shonda Rhimes was unable to attend, Washington accepted the “Scandal” award. In her own acceptance speech, Washington said, “The historic nature of this role is due not to lack of talent, but lack of opportunity.”

    Costume designers honor ’12 Years a Slave,’ ‘Behind the Candelabra’
    =====================================================
    .
    February 24, 2014, 10:34 a.m.
    .
    The Costume Designers Guild members honored their own at a gala dinner and awards ceremony at the Beverly Hilton’s International Ballroom on Saturday night, handing out awards for outstanding costume design in seven categories as well as a handful of honorary recognitions.
    .
    Among the high-profile attendees (many of them tapped to awards) included Mindy Kaling, Tony Hale, Bill Hader, Jonah Hill, Debra Winger, Kerry Washington, the evening’s host Joshua Malina (“The West Wing,” “Scandal”) and a va-va-voom Raquel Welch, who recognized the importance of costume design by quipping: “Face it, if [costume designer] Sir Carl Toms hadn’t put me in that fur bikini in ‘One Million Years B.C.,’ I wouldn’t be here — there wouldn’t be a Raquel Welch.”
    .
    In a possible preview of Oscar night, Patricia Norris won for excellence in period film for her efforts on “12 Years a Slave,” a category that included fellow 2014 Academy Award nominees Michael Wilkinson for “American Hustle” and Catherine Martin for “The Great Gatsby.”
    Norris’ son took to the stage to accept the award on her behalf. “She said, ‘Go have a good time, I’m not going to win,’” Robert Norris said before reading a brief just-in-case list of thank-yous from his mother. “I can’t wait to give this to her. Thank you.”
    The night’s other categories and winners included:
    .
    Excellence in Contemporary Film
    Suzy Benzinger for “Blue Jasmine”
    Excellence in Fantasy Film

    April Ferry, whose costume design credits include “The Big Chill” and this year’s “RoboCop” remake, was the recipient of a career achievement award, Sharon Day received the distinguished service award and Judd Apatow was honored with the guild’s distinguished collaborator award.
    After a montage of film stills and behind-the-scenes photos from his various movies and TV shows (“The Ben Stiller Show,” “Bridesmaids,” “Superbad” and “Girls” among them), Apatow noted that he had been wearing a Lacoste shirt “in every single shot.” “If that doesn’t get me a free box of [expletive] I don’t know what does,” he joked.
    Amy Adams was the final honoree, receiving a crystal award in the shape of a crocodile (the iconic Lacoste logo), which was presented to her by “American Hustle” costar Jeremy Renner.
    “My daughter’s obsessed with alligators right now,” Adams said, “so I’m going to put this in her room while she’s asleep and she’s going to freak out.”
    Adams went on to share a light-hearted laundry list of things she’d learned from costume designers over the years, from “the actual start date of a movie” to “always wear undergarments to a fitting,” ending with profuse thanks to costume designers, costume house Western Costume “and ['American Hustle' key costumer] Honah Lee [Milne], who helped me keep my dignity when, at the end of the day,” Adams said, “there wasn’t a shred of it left.”

    Hammond minister finds religious paralells in “12 Years a Slave”
    ================================================
    .
    Published: Tuesday, February 25, 2014
    .
    Director Steve McQueen’s Academy Award-nominated film, “12 Years a Slave” takes the viewer to an intimate place where slavery is lashed at and dehumanized just as the slaves were in pre-Civil War North America. Stanley N. Helton, Minister of the Word at First Christian Church of Hammond, was intrigued by the adapted screen play since he had read the book from which it was based, “12 Years a Slave: Narrative of Solomon Northup” by Solomon Northup. Helton came to the Student Union Theater to present the 14th annual Black History and Politics Lecture titled, “The Gods of Slavery: The Theology of Solomon Northup.”
    .
    The purpose of his presentation was to highlight the use of the Bible in Northup’s narrative throughout the film “12 Years a Slave,” and the impact of slavery and the Civil War on religious denominations. McQueen’s film tells the true story of Solomon Northup, a free black man in pre-Civil War America residing with his wife and children in Saratoga, N.Y. Northup was a violinist and well-known, respectable man about town. One day, he caught the attention of two white men claiming themselves to be “talent scouts.” The two men invited him to dinner and offered him a job playing violin for a traveling circus. Northup trusted the men and took the deal, but the next day woke up to shackles and brick walls; he had been drugged and kidnapped to be sold into slavery.
    .
    Northup was enslaved for 12 years on various plantation homes in Louisiana from 1841 to 1852, legally being released on Jan. 4, 1853. After seeing the film and reading the book, Helton believes Northup was particularly targeted because he was educated. This fact gives the film an interesting angle because Northup is an outsider even among slaves.
    .
    “My best guess is that Northup was introduced to the kidnappers as someone with some skills, particularly violin playing,” said Helton. “Northup was slow to believe the two had set him up.”
    .
    For 12 years, Northup is owned by three masters in Louisiana until he meets a Canadian abolitionist who helps him begin his journey back home. The story he wrote down after his release was published after the popular “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”. He feels the film and book can create a safe place for people to start a debate on the issue of slavery.
    .
    “The film has the potential of creating space where people can talk about the legacy of slavery in our country,” Helton said. “Northup’s story helps people to experience, in a limited way, how bad slavery was, and he shows in his book that slavery dehumanized both the slave and the slave owner.”
    .
    Northup, played by British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, witnesses horrid, vile actions during his years as a slave. It was his desperation and willingness to survive which ultimately redelivers him into freedom. Questions Helton brought to the audience’s mind included, “If God is the god of both the slave and the free, then why are some slaves?” and “If God is in charge, how did the master become God?” These are areas Northup’s writing explores, “pitting God’s sovereignty against human responsibility,” according to Helton.
    .
    The film has already won eight awards and is up for Best Picture at the Oscars on March 2. Helton hopes the film will be a vehicle for the public to use in the debate of racism, religion and human trafficking.
    .
    “I think Northup’s relevance for today is that he addresses enduring challenges,” Helton said. “His story is a story about human trafficking, which has received recent attention. His story raises the issue of respect for other cultures and reminds us that there are no easy answers, but there are no answers if we do nothing.”

    The Maleficent premiere in Los Angeles will be on Tuesday, May 27, 2014!!!

    From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well. The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. “Maleficent” is produced by Joe Roth and directed by Robert Stromberg, with Angelina Jolie, Don Hahn, Matt Smith, Palak Patel and Sarah Bradshaw serving as executive producers. Linda Woolverton wrote the screenplay. “Maleficent” opens in theaters on May 30, 2014.

    Here’s How Angelina Jolie Convinced Universal Execs To Let Her Direct ‘Unbroken’
    =========================================================================
    .
    Feb. 25, 2014, 6:28 PM866
    .
    Angelina Jolie sat down with Tom Brokaw on the “Today” show Tuesday to discuss the upcoming movie she directed, “Unbroken,” about the incredible life of former Olympic runner and legendary World War II hero, Louis Zamperini.
    .
    “This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” Jolie revealed while holding hands with Zamperini during the interview.
    .
    So how did the actress, with just one director credit under her belt, land the directing gig of the film adaptation of the best-selling book of the same name?
    .
    “I had all the hours of phone calls and things and made all these boards, I took my glue and tape and pictures off the internet and tried to — and I put all my boards in a garbage bag and I carried them to Universal myself and put them out and I pitched my butt off!”
    .
    “I felt such a huge responsibility to get it right,” Jolie said. “I love him so much and he’s helped me so much in my life.”
    .
    Ironically, the 38-year-old Hollywood starlet and 97-year-old former Olympian were closer to each other before filming than they even realized. Zamperini’s home overlooks Jolie’s in the Hollywood Hills.
    .
    “I imagine that for the last 10-something years, he’s been sitting there having a coffee in the morning and wondering who’s going to make this movie!” Jolie exclaimed. “And I’ve been sitting in my room laying there thinking, ‘What am I supposed to be doing with my life? I wanna do something important. I need some help. I need some guidance. Where is it?’ And it was right outside my window.”

    Oscars 2014: 12 Years a Slave, the hot favourite
    =====================================
    .
    Los Angeles,: February 26, 2014).
    .
    The harrowing story of a free black man’s nightmare experience of slavery is set to win the biggest prize in the movie world, with experts predicting that 12 Years a Slave is all but certain to win the Oscar for the year’s best picture.
    .
    The leading nominees are Gravity and American Hustle, each with 10 Oscar nominations, one more than 12 Years a Slave. But online bookies are taking bets at short odds of 4:1 that the drama by Steve McQueen will be the big winner on Sunday night when Hollywood’s royalty assembles to hand out the 2013 honours.
    .
    The status of 12 Years a Slave as the overwhelming favourite to take home the best picture prize is mirrored on the awards website Goldderby.com where all but five of the 29 experts polled picked the shocking slave drama as their Oscar favourite.
    .
    The five hold-outs gave their vote to Gravity, the gripping space thriller from Alfonso Cuaron that stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as a couple of astronauts stranded in outer space. The other early favourite for the Oscar, American Hustle, which picked up the Golden Globe for best comedy or musical, is no longer regarded as a realistic best picture frontrunner. This is due largely to the penchant often displayed by Oscar voters for more serious films that tackle heavyweight issues.
    .
    Other top nominees
    “Several of the nominees are smaller, more personal stories with only a few tackling big ideas in scope or emotion,” says Eric Larnick, film critic at moviefone.com. “Ultimately, it comes down to “Gravity” and “12 Years,” and the Academy has always favoured the movie about the human condition against the one that’s about the visual spectacle.”
    The other top nominees with six nods apiece are Captain Phillips, based on a true story about a ship hijacked by Somali pirates, Dallas Buyers Club about a sick cowboy’s attempt to secure experimental treatments for AIDS sufferers, and Nebraska, about an old man’s quixotic road trip to claim an imagined lottery prize.
    All the above movies will compete for best picture, along with Her, a futuristic romantic comedy about a man who falls in love with a computer avatar; Philomena, about an ageing woman’s search for the son taken away from her as a baby; and The Wolf of Wall Street, which tracks the life and excesses of a young millionaire trader in the US financial markets.
    If McQueen’s slave drama is the hot favourite for best picture, Gravity looks certain to be rewarded elsewhere on Oscar night, with all 29 experts picking Cuaron as the likely recipient of the director’s award for his work in recreating the visual effects of space on a sound stage through the use of new camera techniques.
    The acting awards are a tougher call. Mathew MaConaughy has won most of the earlier season prizes for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, in which he plays a cowboy diagnosed with AIDS, who ends up saving hundreds of other patients by important experimental drugs. His co-star Jared Leto is favoured for the supporting actor prize.
    Blue Jasmine’s Cate Blanchett is strongly tipped to take home the award for best actress, while Lupita Nyongo of 12 Years a Slave will battle it out with Jennifer Lawrence of American Hustle for the supporting actress award.
    Among the films nominated in the best foreign language category, the odds favour the lavish and sensitive Italian film by Paolo Sorrentino, The Great Beauty, which looks back at the life of an ageing bon vivant in Rome.
    .

    Carrier chooses life with breast surgery
    =================================
    .
    Last updated 15:19 26/02/2014
    .
    Timaru woman Sally Parker is fighting breast cancer – she does not have the disease, but the likelihood of her succumbing to it is too great to ignore.
    .
    In 2008 she discovered, through genetic testing, that she had the gene BRCA 1, which can cause hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.
    .
    “From an early age, I have known cancer,” she explains. “My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was 9-years-old and underwent surgery and treatment; and then continued to experience relapses for a further 10 years before passing away at age 47.”
    .
    Miss Parker was determined not to go down the same path as her mother. Instead, she started “high surveillance” monitoring from the age of 30, including yearly mammograms.
    .
    In her mid 30s, Miss Parker also added regular MRI scans to her list of early detection measures and started her journey of genetic testing.
    .
    She was the last person in her immediate family to have the test. Her siblings also tested positive.
    “Initially I was going to wait till I was older (at least 40) to consider prophylactic surgery (removal of breasts and ovaries). “However, when my cousin was diagnosed with breast cancer while undergoing prophylactic surgery, I thought ‘why am I waiting’ and ‘I need to be here for my son’.
    .
    “If I can dramatically reduce the risk of breast cancer I need to be proactive and start the journey (and) get on the wait list for surgery,” she says. She is pleased she did. “I have no regrets about my decision, I feel I have chosen life.”
    .
    The genes, BRCA 1 and BRCA 2, received global publicity after actress Angelina Jolie announced she had undergone preventive breast surgery last year.
    .
    “I feel Angelina’s courage to share (her story) has increased awareness and elevated the level of understanding, which hopefully also diminishes fear,” Miss Parker says.
    .
    “I think this encouraged conversation and may help others to make well informed decisions and start the genetic testing process.”

    William Hague: We must take global stand to end rape as a weapon of war
    ==============================================================
    .
    Published on the 26 February 2014
    .
    EVERYONE remembers who they shared a desk with at school. Well Hillary Clinton, the then US Secretary of State, and I shared a desk for two and a half years when I was a brand-new Foreign Secretary, at the UN Security Council and in meetings around the world where they seat nations in alphabetical order.
    .
    She would silence any room, just by walking into it. She always spoke the truth as she saw it, fearlessly. And she was fond of passing notes in class. I remember one that said: “William, let’s get out of here and have some fun.”
    .
    But there is a particular reason why we worked so well together across a political divide, as well as across the Atlantic: we both believe that foreign policy is not just about responding to crises, its goal must be to improve the condition of humanity. As nations, it is what we choose to do with our power that matters most of all, and that is the greatest testament to our values.
    .
    I believe that there is no greater strategic prize of the 21st century than the full social, political and economic empowerment of all women everywhere.
    .
    This must be the century in which women take their rightful place, in which hundreds of 
years of marginalisation are forcefully and finally overturned and extinguished, in which girls are born not into a world of narrow hopes and lesser protections, but into a world of equal treatment and boundless opportunity.
    .
    It is a cause that every Foreign Minister should champion, in a global effort to break down the barriers which hold women back and unlock their full potential.
    .
    It requires all the ingenuity and persistence that diplomacy can bring to bear, and should be part of the mission of each Ambassador in every Embassy of all democratic nations.
    We must turn commitments that exist on paper into education, jobs, equal participation and leadership positions for women.
    .
    We need to turn women’s invisible presence in many countries around the world into a visible force in every society: with women represented in every peace process, in every government, in all walks of life.
    In my view it is impossible to achieve that aspiration in a world in which the use of rape as a weapon of war goes unchallenged.
    .
    Many men and boys are victims of these crimes. Their plight too must be brought out of the shadows. But sexual violence in armed conflict disproportionately affects women, and is part of the crushing weight holding back women’s development.
    .
    It is also a major factor in creating refugee flows and perpetuating conflict. And it should be at the heart of how we view conflict prevention and foreign policy in this century.
    .
    In discussing this award we must acknowledge that it is still considered unusual for a man, and a politician, to raise these issues. But rape and sexual violence are crimes overwhelmingly committed by men. And that they should happen, while the world does nothing, should shame all men. Indeed to shy away from talking about these facts is in itself unmanly.
    .
    One woman who has inspired me is Angelina Jolie. Without her film In the Land of Blood and Honey this initiative would not exist at all.
    .
    It brought home to me that an estimated 50,000 women were raped in Bosnia 20 years ago, and that still today virtually none of them have seen any justice.
    .
    It made me think about Colombia, Rwanda, South Sudan, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mali, Liberia, Syria – the endless list of conflicts where women, children and men have been brutally assaulted, often as part of a military strategy, with total impunity.
    .
    Sexual violence is often one of the first things that happens as soon as conflict or instability take hold. Yet it is usually the last thing to be taken into account by those ending wars or rebuilding nations. Women bear the worst of the burden of war – but they have always benefited least from the peace.
    .
    This summer, we will co-host a global summit in London, which we intend will be a summit like no other: we are setting out to change the whole global attitude to these crimes, as well changing bureaucracies. We don’t just want to move the pens of Ministers, we are going to try to move the hearts of people. It is not enough to change countries’ laws, unless 
we change people’s whole mentality.
    .
    We hope that to create so much momentum that we begin to shatter the culture of impunity, so that in the future, far from any judge, prosecutor or law, any man with a gun in any conflict-zone will think twice before ordering or committing rape.
    .
    There will be many people who say that this is too big a task, too difficult, or that it requires too much change in the crooked timber of humanity ever to be successful.
    .
    If we don’t end impunity this problem will get worse not better. And we cannot hope to end other forms of pervasive discrimination against women if we are unable to stand up to one of the most extreme forms of violence against them.

    Britain’s Hague, Angelina Jolie to chair summit on rape in war
    ========================================
    .
    (AFP)–8 hours ago
    .
    Washington — British Foreign Secretary William Hague and Hollywood screen idol Angelina Jolie are joining forces to co-host a high-profile summit this year focused on ending rape as a weapon of war.
    Hague pledged Tuesday that the four-day London gathering in June would “be a summit like no other” bringing together foreign ministers from 140 countries as he was awarded the 2014 Hillary Clinton prize for Women, Peace and Security.
    .
    It was Jolie’s film “In the Land of Blood and Honey” which first opened his eyes to the extent of sexual violence in conflict zones, he told the award ceremony at the prestigious Georgetown University in Washington.
    .
    “Sexual violence is often one of the first things that happens as soon as conflict or instability take hold,” Hague said.
    .
    “Yet it is usually the last thing to be taken into account by those ending wars or rebuilding nations,” he added, stressing that “women bear the worst of the burden of war.”
    .
    “We must remove rape and sexual violence from the world’s arsenal of cruelty,” he insisted.
    - Meeting would be largest yet –
    .
    The June 10-13 meeting would be the largest gathering ever to focus on sexual violence in conflict, and would also bring together armed forces, police units and legal experts, Hague explained.
    .
    It would ask countries “to write action against sexual violence into their military training and doctrine and their peace-keeping missions overseas,” as well as launch a new international protocol on investigating such crimes.
    .
    “But we are going to be even more ambitious than that. We are setting out to change the whole global attitude to these crimes, as well changing bureaucracies,” Hague said.
    .
    The hope was to create “so much momentum that we begin to shatter the culture of impunity,” he added.
    “If women are still treated in this abhorrent way in times of war, they will never be treated as equals in times of peace, and that cannot be tolerated.”
    .
    In presenting the award, former secretary of state Clinton said “women, peace and security… must be perceived as being integral” to all other global issues such as the conflict in Syria.
    .
    Also honored was Doctor Denis Mukwege, founder of the Panzi hospital in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which has treated tens of thousands of rape victims.
    .
    “The bodies of women become the battleground of conflict,” he said, warning many assaults on women are carried out by child soldiers brainwashed by the adults who have kidnapped them.
    .
    “Rape is not only an attack on women and girls, but also an assault on our common humanity,” Mukwege said.
    Jolie’s 2011 film, which marked her directorial debut, is a love story told against the backdrop of the Bosnian war two decades ago, when according to Hague some 50,000 women were raped. Virtually none of them have received justice, the British minister said.
    .
    “By taking up this cause we are shouldering a responsibility that our world has shirked for too long; and having taken it up, now we must never set it down again,” Hague said.

    Page 3 Profile: Louis Zamperini, former Olympian
    ======================================
    There’s a new man in Angelina Jolie’s life?
    Yes. Fear not though, she hasn’t chucked Brad Pitt. Jolie is directing a new film, Unbroken, based on the life of Louis Zamperini.
    .
    Zamperini? Never heard of him…
    Expect that to change this December. Mr Zamperini, who is now 97, is a former Olympic long-distance runner who survived as a prisoner of war in Japan. In earlier days he finished eighth in the Berlin Olympics but completed his final lap of the track so quickly that Hitler insisted on a personal meeting.
    .
    Quite a life story…
    Yes, and the film details his sheer determination and spirit. Mr Zamperini was enlisted in the US Air Force in 1941 only for his bomber plane to crash a year later. He survived 47 days in shark-infested waters before reaching land where he was captured. He was held until 1945 at a series of prisoner-of-war camps, where he was tortured and subjected to psychological abuse.
    .
    Presumably, those scars remain?
    Mr Zamperini suffered post-traumatic stress disorder but later converted to Christianity and launched a career as a speaker. He has even gone so far as to visit his former prison guards to let them know that he has forgiven them.
    .
    That’s where Ms Jolie comes in?
    Yes, Jolie has said she feels that Zamperini’s inspirational story offers a beacon of hope in troubled times. “[The world] can seem hopeless and it can seem very overwhelming. But the resilience and the strength of the human spirit is an extraordinary thing,” she said. The feeling’s mutual. In a recent interview Zamperini referred to her as “honey” and “my gal”, and she replied “I love you”. We’ll wait to see where it goes from here.

    Descendants of Solomon Northup live in Rochester
    =======================================
    .
    Updated: Wednesday, February 26 2014, 07:26 AM EST
    .
    Rochester, N.Y. — It’s a film that has created a lot of buzz.
    “12 Years a Slave” is the movie based on the written memoirs by Solomon Northup.
    Northup, a musician and carpenter who lived in Saratoga Springs, was lured, kidnapped and sold into slavery for 12 years in Louisiana.
    “Now here’s one that’s real, it’s very real,” said relative Deirdre Lunzy. “So this is not a Hollywood make up job; this really, really happened.”
    It’s not just a Hollywood movie for siblings Deirdre and Kevin Linzy and Melissa Archie; this is the story of their lineage.
    Northup was their great, great, great grandfather.
    It’s a story that’s stirred lots of emotion.
    “I read the book three times and each time there was a different emotion I felt,” Kevin Linzy said. “The first was anger, the second was sadness and the third was acceptance for what grandpa had gone through. I actually felt like I felt it. There was a scene where he was getting beat that was one of the harshest things for me to watch.”
    “When you see things like that or when I watch things like that, and I’ve watched a lot and have cried, but when you can actually imagine or don’t imagine and know that that’s your blood, that’s someone you’re connected to in some way, it’s emotionally very hard,” said Deirdre Linzy.
    The family said it’s a time in history that’s difficult to imagine, but it’s a story their family cherishes.
    They said they see it as an opportunity to share it with their community and beyond.
    “I feel blessed that they chose to do this movie. Everyone needs to know what we went through as a people and our children need to be educated better,” relative Melissa Archie said. “I would like them to take a sense of well-being, know who you are, know who your family is.”
    The family discovered their ancestry in the late ’90s after a research group in Saratoga Springs notified one of their aunts.
    The siblings said there’s a hope that learning from ones past can lead to change in ones future.
    It’s a message they said they hope the black community hears loud and clear.
    “You can do anything. Anything is possible if you have the will. You can do anything,” said Deirdre Linzy. “So all this fighting and killing and territorial thing for what, a piece of property or a pair of shoes, a sneaker or a ring? Think first, our ancestors, what they did, what they went through so that we could have these freedoms. It’s amazing.”
    Overall, the family said the movie is a great, accurate depiction of Northup’s story.
    The film is up for nine Oscar awards, including best picture.
    The Oscars air Sunday on 13WHAM.

    Perfect pitch for movie ‘Unbroken’
    ============================
    (Reuters) / 27 February 2014
    .
    Jolie opened up about the exhaustive process it was to pitch the movie to studio executives, which she undertook herself. Angelina Jolie says she ‘pitched her butt off’ to sell Unbroken to movie execs. TOM BROKAW CONDUCTED a rare interview with Angelina Jolie and 97-year-old Louis Zamperini on the Today show on Tuesday about their upcoming film Unbroken, a biopic about the former distance runner and legendary World War II hero’s life.
    .
    Jolie opened up about the exhaustive process it was to pitch the movie to studio executives, which she undertook herself. “This has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” Jolie revealed. I had all the hours of phone calls and things and made all these boards. I took my glue and tape and pictures off the internet and tried to – and I put all my boards in a garbage bag and I carried them to Universal myself and put them out and I pitched my butt off!”
    .
    “Just watching the two of you, I’ll bet this is not just a filmmaker’s journey for you,” Brokaw said to Jolie. “This becomes really personal, because you’ve got the legacy of this amazing man in your hands and on the big screen.”“Such a huge responsibility to get it right,” Jolie said. “I love him so much and he’s helped me so much in my life!”
    .
    “Did you find the book on your own, or did somebody send it to you?” Brokaw asked.
    “I wanted to direct something again, but I wasn’t sure what,” she explained. “And I wanted…it had to be something I would love and care about because it takes much more time away from your family and much more effort than acting.”
    .
    Incredibly, Zamperini’s home overlooks Jolie’s in the Hollywood Hills. “I imagine that for the last 10-something years, he’s been sitting there having a coffee in the morning and wondering who’s going to make this movie!” Jolie exclaimed. “And I’ve been sitting in my room laying there thinking, ‘What am I supposed to be doing with my life? I wanna do something important. I need some help. I need some guidance. Where is it?’ And it was right outside my window.”

    Angie: Face of an Angel, Heart of a Demon
    ============================================
    .
    Chris Martin Infowars.com March 26, 2012
    .
    Angelina Jolie (Angie) the estranged daughter of famed Hollywood Actor John Voight is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. How many people in the world commit years acquiring advanced political degrees to serve as an international ambassador and never get the chance? In a country that elects Hollywood characters like Ronald Reagan to serve as President; endures an economy hijacked by international banking cartels; allows their military to be coerced by a United Nations with a New World Order agenda; and a Congress enslaved by corporate interests – it makes sense to deploy a blood-thirsty, death obsessed, psychologically deranged Barbie doll as a front.
    .
    Instantly recognized worldwide for her pouty lips and gaudy appeal, Angie’s past is fraught with clues that will allow an average person to judge whether she is truly a champion of children, a naive participant in the globalist child slavery-eugenics program or a cunning master manipulator of mind control. One only needs to look into her youth, her most formative years, to catch glimpses of darkness. Born the daughter of wealthy Hollywood stalwart Jon Voight, the Beverly Hills High School graduate would have you believe she suffered alienation from her peers due to her mother’s modest income. In 2005 it came to light through a CNN Paula Zhan production that indeed Angie had the roots of a blood thirsty, psychologically deranged, death obsessed individual.
    .
    Drama teaching assistant Neely Margo said, “She was very dark, very goth. I always remember her wearing black lipstick. Hair was very long. Very quiet. She didn’t talk to anybody, really.” Zahn went on to explain Angie once dreamed of becoming a mortician and had a fascination with self-mutilation. Angie confirmed this obsession and is quoted as saying “I collected knives and always had certain things around. For some reason, the ritual of having cut myself and feeling, like, feeling the pain, maybe, feeling alive, feeling some kind of release, it was somehow therapeutic to me.”
    .
    In a 2001 Rolling stone interview she shares a notebook of personal drawings that include the words – Death: Extinction of Life – Only the Strong Shall Survive – Pain: Physical or Mental Suffering – Autopsy: Examination of a Corpse – to name only a few. The interview continues and she is quoted as morbidly wanting to be a funeral director, which she supports by producing the 1987 Funeral Service Handbook. Driving this dark picture home the interviewer notes above her current bed shared with fleeting husband Billy Bob Thornton is the framed words – To the End of Time – explained by the interviewer to be written in her own blood and given as a Christmas present.
    .
    Angie admitted abusing drugs in her late teens and early twenties, having been quoted as trying them all and favoring heroin. Her father provided insight into her mental health emanating from her childhood in an interview with Access Hollywood and later in detail in an August 2002 Telegraph article. Voight explained, “There was an incident years ago when the children were babies,” explaining further he said, “…he noticed the change in his child when she accompanied him on a trip to Japan…she was almost like a ghost…she wasn’t there any more…I found out later many things, about the cutting, the self-mutilation.”
    .
    At 26 years old Angie clarifies in a NY Rock interview this is the first time she became personally aware of the Cambodian and other worldwide humanitarian crises. Again, it is mystifying and insulting to a qualified person how a psychologically fragile, blood thirsty, self-mutilating high-school graduate eludes any kind of background check or need for higher education to become a United Nations Ambassador. Digression aside, she simply contacted UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Ruud Lubbers and was on August 27, 2001 – knighted a Goodwill Ambassador.
    .
    Having a penchant for self injury, blood and indeed a growing fascination for war she has gloated on her visits to war torn areas such as Sudan, Chad, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya. All rife with abandoned children available for sale into the child slavery dungeons of the world, vaccination eugenics experimentation or for the lucky few–Hollywood abduction at the expense of their real names, self identity and homelands. All culminating in Angie’s 2007 elevation to the New World Orders inner circle, as she became a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. These ceremonial promotions without curriculum-vitae for a woman who in her first marriage wore a white T-shirt with the grooms name written in her own blood are symbiosis for international agencies desperate to conceal their true elitist anti-human and anti-freedom agenda.
    .
    The fascination for human blood and the use of it in ceremony reached an apex when it was reported Angie and her 2nd husband Billy Bob wore vials of each others blood around their necks. Erroneously hyped, Billy Bob clarified in an interview with Stuff magazine, “We didn’t give them back to each other. Mine is probably upstairs in a drawer somewhere. It was never a vial of blood. We poked our fingers and put a little spot of blood inside a little clear locket. That was another thing that was blown out of proportion.” None the less, blood ceremony is a reoccurring pastime for Angie and I leave it to the reader to decipher why this qualifies her to serve the equally blood thirsty United Nations and Council of Foreign Relations handlers.
    .
    While these episodes of blood ritual may continue in private, Angie turned her attention to acquiring children. Three months before abruptly separating from her, “To the End of Time” 2nd husband, she acquired a Cambodian baby in March 2002. Rath Vibol born on August 5, 2001 in a local Cambodian village was acquired under the guise of having two parents. In fact later it was revealed by People magazine – a spokesman for the Immigration and Naturalization Service in Washington, D.C., says, “Only her name is on the [adoption] papers.”The child was stripped of its birth name as if adopted from a kennel and renamed Maddox Chivan. The acquisition process was interrupted when the U.S. government banned all Cambodian adoptions in late 2001 due to the selling of children. Shipped like a mail order doll, Rath Vibol was sent to Namibia in 2003 to accommodate his new mother’s current film location.
    .
    Angie long a bitter and outspoken critic of her father for allegedly cheating on her mother was the center of frivolous accusations for causing the divorce between Brad Pitt and Jennifer Anniston. In a 2005 interview Angie says, “To be intimate with a married man, when my own father cheated on my mother, is not something I could forgive. I could not look at myself in the morning if I did that. I wouldn’t be attracted to a man who would cheat on his wife.” Later the couple admitted they fell in love during the filming of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, clearly adding adultery and deception to the list of her dark lusts.
    .
    Meanwhile, the lust for child acquisition continued as she acquired 6 month old Yemsrach from Ethiopia in early 2005, quickly changing her name to Zahara Marley. Yemsrach was erroneously designated as an AIDS orphan, later testing negative for the immune deficiency. After returning to the U.S. Yemsrach was hospitalized for malnutrition. Various media erroneously reported Yemsrach’s mother wanted her back. In November 2007, Reuters provided cover or clarification that in fact Yemsrach’s mother was happy Angie acquired her baby.
    .
    Angie’s insatiable lust for child acquisition continued as she expanded her contacts in countries swamped with orphaned children. In March of 2007 Angie got her “hat trick” and acquired her 3rd child, Pham Quang Sang from Vietnam. Keeping with her ritual of stripping the child of their birth name for assimilation into her family, Angie renamed the 3 year old boy (certainly accustomed to his name by that age) Pax Thien. Again circumventing local laws she acquired the child as a single parent, even though Pham would be raised with Angie’s current partner and co-parent Brad Pitt. Vietnam’s adoption laws prohibit unmarried couples to co-adopt. Pitt later adopted the child in the United States and his name was changed yet again to Jolie-Pitt.
    .
    Angie’s lust for child acquisition revealed yet another disturbing new ritual. Angie successfully sold the rights to photographs of her first biological child Shiloh Nouvel for $4.1 million and $3.5 million, to People magazine in America and Hello magazine in Britain, respectively. She continued this sinister cashing in “for charity” from images of her children by selling the rights to Pham’s acquisition photos for undisclosed millions. This cold and absurd ritual continued when Angie gave birth to twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline in 2008, the first images were reportedly sold for $14 million dollars. The proceeds funneled into the Jolie-Pitt foundation, a foundation largely controlled by the global child collecting couple. Perhaps justifiable in the narrow orbit of an eccentric, blood thirsty, globe hopping, uneducated, egotistical, falsely appointed international ambassador but absolutely absurd to the average human being.
    .
    Angie’s penchant for running at the mouth reveals all, including sadomasochist tendencies which are consistent with her literal lust for ritualizing human blood and self mutilation. Angie openly spoke of her experiences with drugs and depression, recalling in 1997 almost hiring a hitman (suggesting links with such nefarious characters) to kill her. Further, she blabbed just before her bloody ritualized marriage to Billy Bob she was sectioned at UCLA’s psychiatric ward. Demonstrating her evil inner-self by wearing eccentric dark tattoos such as the Latin proverb “quod me nutrit me destruit,” (what nourishes me destroys me) and the Tennessee Williams quote, “A prayer for the wild at heart, kept in cages.” Angie also has removed by laser more overt and sinister tattoos such as the Chinese character for “Death.” (死)
    .
    A match made in hell is what has been described here. The United Nations needing the outwardly “beautiful” face of a famous Hollywood child rights advocate to screen its New World Order eugenics and child slavery programs, while a big mouth Hollywood actress requires transformation of her public image from sinister eccentric blood lust drug addict to humanitarian and devoted mother. Angie has been cast upon the world and sent to the hubs of child abduction and war to make “legitimate” contacts for the United Nations sinister hidden programs. Now a full fledged member for the Council on Foreign Relations she feels empowered to call for war where it serves the interests of Team America as harnessed by the United Nations, itself in turn harnessed by globalist bankers. Joseph Kony boogie men of the world beware –Angie the blood thirsty demon angel is coming to your country to lay the ground work for acquiring your children and resources even if it empowers your tyrannical government into spilling the luscious blood of your populace. Planting false flags with all the fan fare and glow of Hollywood the United Nations endeavors to carry out its New World Order programs.

You’ve been posting for the last 6 or more hours and wasting your time because you were not posting to inform anyone, you were posting to irritate the fans and make fun of the real Phool.

    ‘Sick Boy’ weds former addict.
    ==============================
    .
    Daily Mirror. May 3, 1996.
    .
    Jonny Lee Miller, junky Sick Boy in the hit movie Trainspotting, has married a former heroin addict.
    .
    He met bride Angelina Jolie when they co-starred in the hi-tech computer thriller Hackers, which opens today.
    .
    Angelina, 20, daughter of Oscar-winning film star Jon Voight, confessed: “I have done just about every drug possible, cocaine, ecstasy, LSD and, my favourite, heroin.
    .
    “Although I have been through a lot of dark days, Jonny has helped me see the light.
    .
    “I have friends who are no longer happy or interesting because they live for drugs all the time.”
    .
    The couple’s sudden wedding took place in Los Angeles in March, and now 23-year-old Jonny has moved in to Angelina’s Hollywood home.
    .
    The actress said she has yet to introduce Jonny to her famous father, star of Midnight Cowboy and the forthcoming Tom Cruise movie Mission Impossible.

    Rose Says:

    @Jen the Hag: You know the creatures are desperate for bad news about Angie when they go back 18 years. First Angie was never a drug addict. We know Ticky is still smoking weed and doing and drinking to get drunk at this time in her life, Don’t let anyone fool you. We also know Justin is a confessed heroin addict and alcoholic. He’s supposed to be on the wagon now. However he was seeing in a bar two weeks ago drinking, and was seen last year drinking alcohol, so hes dtill an alcoholic. Everyone knows Ticky turns up drunk to red carpets and other engagements and awards, functions.

    So the ring needs to take a seat before she embarrass Justin and
    Jennifer with their addictions and they are 42 and 45 year and , not 20
    year old when Angie was experimenting, like most young people. Angle is now a mature woman and her past is behind her. Not like Ticky still trying to come to terms with getting older and closer to 50 yo yet she is pretending she is in her 20′s. Anyway, JTH, we know the trolls are really suffering when they would go back 18 years to bring up negative comments about Angelina. All we have to do is go to the gossip section today and read about just Jen fake engagement and alcoholism.

    JTH, let’s just ignore the trolls because they are suffering. IGNORE, IGNORE, THE IGNORANT TROLLS.

    Btw, all the fans know the CREATURES, SUB HUMANS trolls are the ones stealing Phool’s monikers and other fans monikers. The trolls are pitiful, just pity them and move on.

    I think that might have been the biggest troll meltdown in about 3 years. She stole half a dozen fans’ names, posted crap stories about Angie from 2 years and 18 years ago. I’m surprised Jared’s site didn’t crash from all the posts she threw up (literally) last night. And of course it was an ORIGINAL idea because no troll has ever done this before. Hours and hours of trying to annoy everyone just because she’s pissed that we all told her to get bent when she complained about Phool posting news stories. I said it was jr. high earlier but I’m going to amend that that to 4th grade. She probably licks all her food so nobody asks her for a bite, too.

    Here is an extract from a speech that Lupita gave at the Essence event recently. She addresses the issue of her skin color. Very profound speech.
    ———————————————————————————————–
    ‘Nyong’o received the Breakthrough Performance Award and got real in her speech. This year’s Oscars famously mark the third time that a POC has been nominated for the Best Director Award in the show’s history. As Steve McQueen competes for the top honor, the stars of his 12 Years a Slave – Chiwetel Ejiofor and Lupita Nyong’o are also the favorites in their own categories – Lead Actor and Supporting Actress. And because even this qualifies as an unusually diverse lineup of nominees, the topic of skin color has tended to come up a lot in the past few months.

    Instead of shying away from a subject that she clearly finds difficult, Lupita Nyong’o faced it head on, as she addressed the guests at Essence Magazine’s seventh annual Women in Hollywood luncheon.

    ‘‘I got teased and taunted about my skin,’’ Nyong’o began, on stage in a ballroom at the Beverly Hills Hotel, according to Boston.com. ‘‘My one prayer to God was that I would wake up lighter skinned. The morning would come and I would be so excited about seeing my new skin that I would refuse to look down at myself until I was in front of the mirror because I wanted to see my face first. Every day I would feel the disappointment of being just as dark as the day before.’’

    In an eye-opening testimony, Nyong’o recalled how she tried to bargain with god to make her skin lighter, so that she would avoid being taunted and teased by other children. Nyong’o said she tried to bargain with God by vowing to stop eating sugar cubes and to never lose her school sweater again, if she could only see a change in her skin tone. It wasn’t until she discovered Sudanese British supermodel Alek Wek that she began to believe in her own beauty.

    “She was dark as night and was in all the magazines and on runways,” Nyong’o said. “My complexion had always been an obstacle to overcome. I couldn’t believe that people were embracing a woman who looked so much like me as beautiful. It was perplexing and I wanted to reject it because I had begun to enjoy the seduction of inadequacy. But a flower couldn’t help but bloom inside of me.”

    Nyong’o said she would also like to inspire young women.

    “I hope that my presence on your screen and my face in magazines may lead you, young girls, on a beautiful journey,” she said. “That you will feel the validation of your external beauty, but also get to the deeper business of being beautiful inside.”

    The 15 Best Movies That Didn’t Win Oscars

    This Sunday night at the 86th Academy Awards, some nominees will be honored and others ignored, thereby motivating legions of viewers and “experts” to weigh in on Monday morning about who was “snubbed” the worst. Yet any such injustices will be merely par for the Oscar course, as the ceremony’s history is littered with glaring, if not downright inexcusable, omissions. Peter O’Toole and Cary Grant never won a statuette. Neither did Stanley Kubrick or Alfred Hitchcock. And the number of classics that failed to snag even a single nomination — King Kong, The Searchers, The Big Sleep, The Seventh Seal, The Night of the Hunter, Aguirre, the Wrath of God, Badlands, Heat, Mean Streets, The Big Lebowski, The Shining, The Red Shoes, His Girl Friday, Touch of Evil, and even Chaplin’s City Lights — is just about jaw-dropping.

    Suffice it to say, the Academy’s track record is less than impeccable. Yet what of the many deserving films that were rightly recognized with nominations, only to then be denied access to the stage podium? In honor of those who were invited to the ball and then sent home empty-handed, we present the greatest Oscar nominated films to ever go o-fer on award night.

    Do the Right Thing (1989)
    Taxi Driver (1976)
    The Thin Red Line (1998)
    The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
    Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964)
    Grand Illusion (1937)
    The Tree of Life (2012)
    As with The Thin Red Line, Terrence Malick was relegated to bridesmaid status in 2012 with The Tree of Life, an admittedly difficult but formally breathtaking religious-themed period piece that — having already snagged Cannes’ Palm d’Or — was nominated for Best Picture, Director, and Cinematography, and yet won none. Good luck finding anyone who thinks it’s a less aesthetically assured work than The Artist.

    Singin’ in the Rain (1952)
    Vertigo (1958)
    A Clockwork Orange (1971)
    It’s a Wonderful Life (1947)
    Psycho (1960)
    Mulholland Dr. (2001)
    Rear Window (1954)
    Rebel Without a Cause (1956)

    Here is an extract from a speech that Lupita gave at the Essence event recently. She addresses the issue of her skin color. Very profound speech.
    .
    +++++++++++++++++++++++
    .
    Very profound and sadly still necessary in a day when stars like Beyonce send black women the wrong message by bleaching their skin until they’re almost white and wearing blond weaves they try to pass off as their own hair.

    @Passing Through: @PT-752. Oh my Lord! Did Bey hear that? Why that’s all Bey’s hair and her natural color. Seems like to me, those are fighting words. LOL!

    Rose Says:

    @Passing Through:#752, You see PT, that’s why some of us are comfortable being called black Americans. And then we have people saying there is no difference, why do some of you wants to be identify as black American and not just Americans? Because we take pride in where we came from. I don’t want to hear I’m race baiting, this is just my opinion. I’ll stop, just wanted to piggy back on you and Go Figure comments.

    @Rose: That’s a shame that people make fun of others with darker skin. In the white mans eyes, we are all black, no matter what shade of black we are. It’s ignorant that black people divide themselves by what color their skin tone is. I’m sickened by this and will always be. Who would of thought the willie lynch syndrome would continue centuries later…

    Can’t wait to see what Angie will be wearing, very excited to see them both on the Red Carpet together.

    Another person I’m excited to see is Lupita, I hope they don’t go overboard board with her hair and not too deep cleavage on her. LN has great arms and a beautiful face and great body, I hope they focus on those parts of her body.

    Lupita told the truth if how she was feeling about the color of her skin, now she’s accepted herself as the beautiful woman she is. Good for her in speaking out. Hope some little black girls can see their black skin as beautiful.

    Now we’re off to a discussion with Steve McQueen, director of #12YearsASlave. Can’t wait!
    “School was a terrible time. A really terrible, terrible terrible time. A terrible time. School was terrible. Terrible” – Steve McQueen
    As he’s speaking to a room full of MBA and Film students
    “Without Brad [Pitt] the film wouldn’t have been made” – big praise for Plan B
    “Do I want to go and talk at Harvard or Yale? Nooooo interest” – “Why UCLA?” – “Oh is this a big school?” – Steve McQueen. Hilarious burn
    “Picking a new project is like planting a seed. Takes a long time to grow”

    @Rose: I know Angelina is going to kill it. I mean, she always does. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her on that worst dresses list…

    As for lupita… She never disappoints either. Her body shape makes it easier for dresses to properly for on her. Also, her skin complexion makes it a lot easier for colorful dresses to look nice as well. I think se should go with a white dress this time around.

    I’m glad lupita spoke the truth. Just imagine how many other people are out there experiencing the same thing. Remember Rose when Tyra had a show on skin bleaching? There were so many AA women on there religiously bleaching their skin in hopes of becoming lighter…

    Rose Says:

    @tweet: So Steve McQ really, really, really didn’t like school, lol.

    Rose Says:

    @were the morons: I remember the bleaching and it’s still happening. Didn’t Michael Jackson used to bleach his skin or was it a skin decease? The reason for the bleaching was because lighter skin woman were given better opportunities to help them succeed in life., so why wouldn’t LN prey for lighter skin, even though she might have been in another country, whether she new it or not she did not see the beauty in her skin color, at that time, that’s why she prayed for a lighter skin color. Everyone wants to move up, and if you have a lighter skin that’s what some people would want, a better life by having a lighter skin.
    Now young, and some other people are now seeing the beauty in their
    skin color. I’m going to leave it at that because I’m always accused of
    opening up a can of worms, lol.

    I was watching The Talk, four of the five ladies voted for 12YAS to take best picture. Aisha Tyler says that was the best movie she ever saw. Let’s hope the Academy voters are voting for the best movie and not just the easy to watch movie.

    @Passing Through:

    that was profound.. I have nothing against weaves. But as a black woman I have always liked my natural hair. Never got a weave. Never worn a wig, no extensions. My friends find it strange. I don’t. When I was a little girl like many I wore that towel or shirt on my hair to make it long. But thank God I grew up to just appreciate me and what I have.

    I actually like women that wear hair enhancements as an accessory. Like part of an outfit. Pisses me off the women that pretend “it’s all my hair”.. why? Why the lie?

    were the morons Says:

    @Carya: Now I wouldn’t call Carla an Uncle Tom because she didn’t like TYAS. There could be many reasons as to why use didn’t like the film. I know my grandma doesn’t like movies like “The Help” and “The Butler” because it brings back memories of what she had to endure in her early years.

    were the morons Says:

    @busted: Wow. I bet you have a lot of thick, gorgeous hair too. I applaud you for staying true to your natural beauty, busted. Women like you inspire me to embrace my natural hair as well.

    As for me, I didn’t wear weaves until last year, and that was the only time. I didn’t like how my hair was constantly itching… But I am an avid braid-wearer. I find them very convienant and a protective style at the same time. I used to have perm in my hair until I chopped my hair back in 2011. Ever since then I have been natural…

    @Rose: Rose, I’m still uncertain on whether or not MJ had a skin disease. But I do feel he wanted to be a white man by changing his nose and having white kids…

    As for the lighter equaling more opportunity, I find that obsured. At this day and age, you would think that would be over… It’s a shame a lot of black folk can’t see their self worth. So many want to be us and they emulate us daily. They use our words; frequent our soul food shops; admire our hair do’s; and want our body features. If anything, most ethnicities envy us. They listen to our music in hopes of fitting in; but they don’t understand the meanings behind some lyrics…

    @were the morons:

    OH don’t clap too soon.. LOL.. I do a perm most time. In the summer I go more natural and braid it most of the time I wish it was really thick. But not my hair grade. BUT it is healthy and I don’t have much grey so I don’t have to do color that often.

    .. But not going to lie I do use go for the creamy crack.. LOL

    but I just can’t do the weave. It would be to heavy and HOT.

    @busted: @were the morons: I hear you WTM. Busted, you made me laugh about the weaves. ONCE I tried putting in brades and before I got home I started taking that crap out of my head, my head felt so heavy I thought it would fall off, LOL. That was the first and last time I put any hair extensions in my hair, lol. However, some of the weaves and braids are beautiful, but not for me. :-),

    The US article is stupid. From previous stories it seems Brad and Angelina like taking cooking classes. But they spun it to the negative.

    @Carya: At least she watch TYAS. I have no problem with a person making a judgement on any film as long as they watch the film. Frankly I did not think Gravity was that great. It was a Lifetime movie with great special effects. But it still has a great chance to win BP.

    How Lupita Nyong’o Already Won Awards Season“12 Years a Slave” star Lupita Nyong’o is favored to take home the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress on Sunday — with only “American Hustle” star Jennifer Lawrence still standing as a possible contender. But whether she gets the big prize or not, the breakout beauty already has this awards season shebang in the bag.From her oh-so-exciting red carpet style choices to the flawless way she’s handled the massive attention her first movie role has brought, Nyong’o has been nothing short of a winner from the get-go.Let’s review some of her best moves (so far), shall we?First and foremost — and this pretty much goes without saying by now — Nyong’o definitely brought her A-game to Steve McQueen’s powerful film, with her portrayal of poor Patsey, the most favored and yet most brutalized slave on a plantation ruled by a sadistic master (Michael Fassbender).Even more impressive, however, is how very composed Nyong’o has been throughout all of the hubbub that comes with chasing an Academy Award.Her speeches have been just the right blend; sounding prepared yet still off-the-cuff, deferential; forgoing cloying false modesty — and not to mention, adorable as can be.When collecting her Screen Actors Guild award, she shared a delightful little anecdote about the moment she first got her part in the film, saying “Daddy, do you know who Brad Pitt is? I’m going to be in a movie with him! He said, ‘I don’t know him personally, but I’m glad you got a job.’”Then there was the time Nyong’o paid clever tribute to her co-nominee Julia Roberts from the podium at the Critics’ Choice Awards, quipping, “Julia, thank you so much for making my brother the coolest guy in school by taking a picture with him.”Clearly the girl knows how to earn some sincere smiles from her audience; but the fun doesn’t stop there. The 30-year-old actress also knows how to turn heads.Since bursting into the zeitgeist, Nyong’o has very quickly established herself as a fashion icon for this season, unafraid of wearing vibrant colors and bold designs and opting for unique hair styles with each appearanceCome Sunday evening, it’s a guarantee that she will be one of the top arrivals people watch for on the red carpet. It’s hard to imagine she won’t nail it from head to toe.Even when the attention coming her way has been of the less desirable sort, Nyongo has been all class.Consider the rumor that she and Best Supporting Actor frontrunner Jared Leto were in some sort of budding relationship. Instead of getting all worked up over her personal life becoming the stuff of tabloid fiction, she went and had a little fun with it on “Ellen” last week, joking along, “Ah, but I thought Miley Cyrus broke us up. That was the last thing I heard.”That’s some impressive maneuvering for someone who literally just started her career in the movie biz.At this point, with all things considered, she’s being most closely compared to Jennifer Lawrence, who also gracefully catapulted into the spotlight a few short years ago when one of her first major movie roles (in Debra Granik’s “Winter’s Bone”) similarly thrust her squarely into the Academy limelight.Like Lawrence, Nyong’o has been an intelligent, mature gem about it all, and seems to keenly realize what the buzz could mean for her career going forward, if she plays her cards right.“I’m curious, I’m excited, I’m ready,” she told ABC News about what comes next for her after the season ends.So are we, Lupita Nyong’o. So are we.
