Why were only dudes nominated for 'Best Director' at the Golden Globes'

Why were only dudes nominated for 'Best Director' at the Golden Globes'
While this wasn't the ONLY thing I was thinking as I wrote about Sex Predatorgate 2017, I did keep thinking that the now months-long scandal was going to restructure Hollywood, and that the current Oscar season would end up taking pains to acknowledge the work of women for a change. It's been several years since Ava DuVernay was snubbed for Best Director Oscar nomination for Selma. Lisa Cholodenko, Debra Granik, Valerie Faris and, of course, Barbra Streisand have all been notably snubbed for Best Director nominations over the years too. If there was ever a moment in time for Hollywood to at least make a cursory effort to recognize 'women in charge' – i.e. female directors – it would right now. But the Golden Globes didn't nominate Greta Gerwig for directing Lady Bird, nor did they nominate Patty Jenkins for Wonder Woman, nor did they nominate Dee Rees for Mudbound. Perhaps there was just a slew of amazing directors and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association just couldn't decide' Or' you know, not that at all.

Despite a best picture, comedy or musical nomination for 'Lady Bird' and widespread acclaim for its first-time director, Greta Gerwig, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. stuck with an all-male group for the 2018 best director nominations. In a year in which Patty Jenkins' 'Wonder Woman' and Dee Rees' 'Mudbound' also received universal praise ' and in the case of 'Wonder Woman,' massive box office as well, the slight was seen as significant.

Gerwig, who has acted in numerous films, had never directed a feature before 'Lady Bird.' She did, however, score a screenplay nom for her original 'Lady Bird' script. The Globes combine both adapted and original screenplays into one category.

The push to hire and recognize female directors has intensified in the wake of the Academy's efforts to improve diversity and the massive sexual harassment scandals that are gripping Hollywood. Instead, the HFPA nominated Guillermo del Toro, whose 'The Shape of Water' had the most noms overall, Martin McDonagh, Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg. Spielberg previously won Globes for directing 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'Schindler's List.'

However, the Globe nominations weren't all bad news for women directors. Angelina Jolie's 'First They Killed My Father' did receive a best foreign film nomination. The Cambodia-set film's dialogue is in Khmer, French and English. And 'The Breadwinner,' directed by Nora Twomey, will compete in the best animated film category, along with 'Loving Vincent,' directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman.

[From Variety]

I understand why Christopher Nolan was nominated for Dunkirk. I understand why Guillermo del Toro was nominated for The Shape of Water. But Martin McDonagh INSTEAD of Greta Gerwig' That's like saying 'we only like quirky, offbeat directors when they have a penis.' And Ridley Scott instead of Dee Rees' They're saying 'we only like period films about rich white people directed by white men, we hate it when it's a period film about black folks directed by a black woman.' Plus, NO ONE HAS SEEN All the Money in the World yet! They literally just nominated Ridley Scott because he had the balls to edit Kevin Spacey out of his film at the last minute. As for Patty Jenkins snub' Jesus Christ. You can argue that Dee Rees and Greta Gerwig made 'small' art films, but Patty Jenkins is literally out here making great action-adventure-romance-superheroine films with more than $800 million in box office revenues around the world. Oh well, at least no one at the Globes will have to deal with the very idea of a female director! #GlobesSoToxicMasculinity or #GlobesSoMaleFragility' The one thing I'll say is that there's plenty of time for the DGA and Academy Awards to right these wrongs. Also: Jordan Peele made one of the most original films of the year on a tiny budget. It's not just about sexism, obviously – it's about racism too, as we see with Dee Rees and Peele.

Angelina Jolie coauthors Guardian op-ed with NATO sec-general Jens Stoltenberg
For a decade, Angelina Jolie was the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commission on Refugees. In 2012, her title was upgraded to Special Envoy for the UNHCR, likely as a way to reflect and reward her work with the agency on behalf of refugees around the world. Angelina has always known that her work doesn't begin and end with the UNHCR, and over the past decade especially, she's branched out by founding her own charities, foundations and organizations to do on-the-ground work in certain countries and to highlight certain causes which needed more attention and energy. One of those causes was preventing sexual violence in conflict. Jolie created a initiative, launched a summit in London on the subject, and she's been doing a ton of work outside of the UNHCR on the initiative, and now she's got someone pretty powerful on her side: the NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg. Stoltenberg and Jolie coauthored a Guardian op-ed on the subject of preventing sexual violence in conflict – go here to read the full piece.

All violence against women betrays the fundamental promise in the UN Charter of equal rights and dignity for women. It is one of the prime reasons why women remain in a subordinate position in relation to men in most parts of the world. When this violence is committed as an act of war it tears apart families, creates mass displacement, and makes peace and reconciliation far harder to achieve. In fact, it is often designed expressly to achieve those goals as part of a military strategy.

Despite being prohibited by international law, sexual violence continues to be employed as a tactic of war in numerous conflicts from Myanmar to Ukraine and Syria to Somalia. It includes mass rape, gang rape, sexual slavery, and rape as a form of torture, ethnic cleansing and terrorism. It accounts in large part for why it is often more dangerous to be a woman in a warzone today than it is to be a soldier.

In our different roles we have seen how conflicts in which women's bodies and rights are systematically abused last longer, cause deeper wounds and are much harder to resolve and overcome. Ending gender-based violence is therefore a vital issue of peace and security as well as of social justice. The Nato Alliance was founded to safeguard not just the security but also the freedom of its peoples: in the words of President Harry Truman, as 'a shield against aggression and the fear of aggression'.

For nearly 70 years Nato has stood for collective defence against military threats. But also for the defence of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law and the UN Charter. We believe that Nato has the responsibility and opportunity to be a leading protector of women's rights. In particular, we believe Nato can become the global military leader in how to prevent and respond to sexual violence in conflict, drawing on the strengths and capabilities of its member states and working with its many partner countries.

Over the coming months we will be working together and with others to identify ways in which Nato can strengthen its contribution to women's protection and participation in all aspects of conflict-prevention and resolution.

[From The Guardian]

The piece then goes on to list the ways NATO can and will target the issue of sexual violence in conflict. NATO plans to 'integrate gender issues into its strategic thinking as part of its values and reinforcing a culture of the integration of women throughout the organization including in leadership positions.' Meaning, they plan to hire more women. They plan to raise the standards of how Allied countries' militaries are trained, and how they help train militaries around the world. They have developed new standard operating procedures for soldiers in the field, which will be taught in pre-deployment training. NATO will be adding more 'gender advisers' in the field, in conflict zones, to ensure that women can come forward and speak about what is happening to them. NATO also plans to collect data on all of this, which might sound like a weird thing to include, but data makes the world go 'round. Can I just say' Angelina is so big-league.

2018 Golden Globe film nominations: who got nominated & who got snubbed?
It's time for that annual debate about whether the Golden Globes are actually a harbinger of the Oscars. I think that debate needs to end – the Globes clearly do a lot to define the races, and in recent years, the Globes are steadily predicting like 90% of the eventual Oscar nominations. The debate this year is more about' how Oscar campaigns need to change and are changing post-Weinstein. That's a discussion for another time though. Here are the Globe nominations in the film categories, and once again, I'm only doing the big ones. Just FYI: Angelina Jolie's First They Killed My Father got nominated for Best Foreign Film! Good.

I'm surprised by the amount of love for All the Money in the World, which I know will not hold up in two months. Much love for The Shape of Water, much love for Lady Bird, much love for I, Tonya, all of which was predicted. Good.

Some people are convinced that Jennifer Lawrence & Brad Pitt could happen

Some people are convinced that Jennifer Lawrence & Brad Pitt could happen
Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky broke up shortly after the reviews came in for 'mother!'. Brad Pitt has been single and mingling for more than a year. I tend to believe that Brad probably was friends-with-benefitting some famous women, like Sienna Miller but maybe not Kate Hudson. He does have a type: younger actresses. J-Law has a type too: older dudes who have somewhat messy personal lives. So is it crazy to think that Brad might be interested in J-Law' To be fair: the whole idea of this is just an obvious piece of 'J-Law is single, Brad is single, they should get together!' And to be fair, the story seems to have originated at Woman's Day, that weird Aussie tabloid that rarely gets anything right. But other outlets have picked it up (including Star Magazine) and now Gossip Cop is trying to shut it down:

Brad Pitt is not pursuing a romance with Jennifer Lawrence, despite a completely made-up report. The bogus article contends that movie star wants to date the actress to make Angelina Jolie jealous, but there's no truth to any of it. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.

A story published in this week's edition of the Australian tabloid Woman's Day, and subsequently posted online by the unreliable website The Inquisitr, claims Pitt believes that Lawrence fits his criteria for the perfect girlfriend. A so-called 'source' says, 'Jennifer 'ticks' all of Brad's boxes in all the right ways. She's gorgeous, the hottest name in Hollywood and seems to like older guys.'

The outlet's questionable insider further purports that Pitt asked Quentin Tarantino to get him the actress's phone number following her recent breakup from Darren Aronofsky, and they have been slowly getting to know each other through texts. The alleged source also maintains that Pitt will only date 'the type of woman who makes Angelina Jolie jealous,' and Lawrence fits the bill.

'Brad hasn't dated much since the breakdown of his marriage, so Jen is a very lucky girl to have his undivided attention,' adds the seemingly nonexistent insider. 'He can't wait to get to know her better, and if all goes well, he thinks they could be Hollywood's next big power couple.'

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Pitt, who laughed off the tabloid's report, before exclusively assuring us it's 'not true.' The actor hasn't been pursuing Lawrence, nor is he on a mission to make his estranged wife jealous. It should also be noted, the 22-year age gap between Lawrence and Aronofsky played a key role in their split, so it's very unlikely that she'd now want to jump into a relationship with a man who's almost 30 years older than her.

[From Gossip Cop]

Brad's people deny everything under the sun these days, so I don't really take this denial as anything significant. That being said, I doubt Jennifer and Brad have ever said more than a few sentences to each other here and there. Maybe he is interested. Maybe she's interested. It feels like it would be in-character for both of them to be attracted to each other. Does it follow that it would actually happen' Eh. Probably not. But it would be an amazing gossip story if it did happen. Frankly, I think this is WAY more likely than J-Law + Chris Pratt.

In Touch: Brad Pitt offered half of his fortune to Angelina & she turned it down

In Touch: Brad Pitt offered half of his fortune to Angelina & she turned it down
Last week, Us Weekly had a source who claimed that Brad Pitt 'is still determined to have a fully resolved situation' regarding his divorce from Angelina Jolie. Some of the lawyers in the comments yelled at me for saying that the Jolie-Pitt divorce is moving at a snail's pace, but really, by celebrity-divorce standards, it IS moving slowly. There are a few outliers, of course, like Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's neverending conscious uncoupling divorce, but really: most celebrity divorces in California are done within a year. It seems like Angelina is the one holding things up, not out of a negotiation tactic for money, but as a way to protect the kids and retain as much custody as possible. Now someone has leaked some interesting info to In Touch Weekly: Brad has offered a very significant financial settlement to Angelina just to get the divorce resolved. Huh.

In an exclusive cover story last September, In Touch magazine revealed the details inside Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's $400 million divorce. Now, 14 months later, In Touch magazine is exclusively reporting that Angelina turned down Brad's divorce settlement offer.

'Brad basically told his attorney to give Angie whatever amount of money she wants to settle the divorce, even though they have a prenup,' an insider tells In Touch exclusively, adding 'he is willing to give her half' of his $250 million fortune.

But despite his generosity, Angelina, 42, won't take it. 'Angie has rejected every single monetary settlement offer,' says the insider, adding that she's also continued to push back on his efforts to gain more custody of their six kids, Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9.

'He isn't trying to buy Angie off and couldn't care less about how he is perceived in the public eye when they do come to an eventual settlement,' says the insider, explaining that after weathering a child abuse investigation last year (he eventually was cleared of any wrongdoing) and publicly confessing that he's struggled with alcohol issues for years, Brad, 53, feels he has nothing left to lose.

'Brad's motivation is first and foremost the kids,' insists the insider. 'Giving Angie a substantial chunk of his fortune will give the kids the quality of life they are used to with no changes. Brad and Angie spend at least $1 million a year on security for their children, including bodyguards. The costs add up, and Brad wants to continue to pay for those things. He also wants Angie to continue doing all of the humanitarian work she wants to do without worrying about finances.'

A rep for Brad had no comment.

[From In Touch Weekly]

I tend to believe that Brad wouldn't truly give a sh-t about paying a significant financial settlement to Angelina. Money isn't his raison d’tre. But he does give a sh-t about his reputation and how things will look once all of the dust settles. It's not so much that he wants custody of the kids – it's that he's worried about how it will look if Angelina gets sole custody. Meanwhile, Angelina is, I assume, still fighting for primary custody. Plus, she has plenty of money, I hope. Brad always had more money, more real estate, more investments, more art. But that means he was the one with the bigger overhead and more money going out every month. I wouldn't be surprised if, when the dust does settle, Angelina will have refused all financial offers from Brad.

Angelina Jolie brought Day of the Dead cookies to Vivienne's Shaolin karate class

Angelina Jolie brought Day of the Dead cookies to Vivienne's Shaolin karate class
There's been a lot of concern and concern-trolling over the years about Angelina Jolie's parenting skills. Maybe years from now, one of the kids will write a tell-all book about how Angelina was the second coming of Mommy Dearest (The Leg of Doom Dearest/The Villainess Jolie Was My Mother). Until then, I have to say' the kids seems pretty well-adjusted, all things considered. I think the past year and a half has been hard on them, but I think it says a lot that Angelina hasn't been working, and she's been at home with them full-time. Jolie was never going to be a Betty Crocker/Jennifer Garner type of mom, let's be real. Jolie can't even boil an egg. But she can BUY cookies for little Vivienne's karate class, and she can show up for the class to watch Viv do her sweet Shaolin moves.

She may not be a typical soccer mom, but Angelina Jolie appeared a fully engaged karate mother during a recent class in North Hollywood. The Oscar winner surprised parents at Shaolin American Self Defense Academy when she showed up with daughter Vivienne Jolie Pitt, 9, and Day of the Dead-decorated cookies from Porto’s Bakery for the dozen or so kids.

According to a parent with a child in the class, “Every time Vivienne did a move, Angelina made sure to watch and smile at her ' it was sweet.”

The source added that Jolie kept busy in the class reading a script, and it must’ve been top secret because it had her name printed on each page. It’s a precaution taken by producers to prevent leaks. It was recently reported that Jolie will voice star in The One and Only Ivan, a Disney film based on the Newbery Medal-winning book written by Katherine Applegate and illustrated by Patricia Castelao. As a director, the Oscar winner was honored along with Luong Ung at the Nov. 5 Hollywood Film Awards with the Hollywood Foreign Language Film Award for their Netflix film First They Killed My Father.

[From The Hollywood Reporter]

I mean' of course this is exactly the kind of story Angelina wants out there, for about a million different reasons. As much as I would love Jolie to return to leather pants, blood vials and badassery, it's clear that her evolution is now towards Cool Mom status, plus acting and directing once or twice a year. I wonder if it was an issue that she only brought cookies for a dozen kids and not the whole class' I wonder if any of the other moms took issue with the Day-of-the-Dead-themed cookies' I wonder who was the source for THR's story'

Susan Faludi: If only Donald Trump 'had harassed Angelina Jolie?'

Susan Faludi: If only Donald Trump 'had harassed Angelina Jolie?'
The last two months has been amazing in one respect: women are being believed. Women are coming forward as named sources, and they're telling their stories of rape, assault and harassment and they're being believed. Much like the Bill Cosby situation, there seems to be strength in numbers, which is a problem: why is it so easy to dismiss one woman's claims' Why does she need back-up from twenty women saying 'oh yeah he did that to me too'' I honestly believed that this was the crux of the problem, that it's not so much about 'believing women' as it is about 'believe an individual woman when she tells her story, give an individual woman the benefit of the doubt.' But is the Harvey Weinstein story about something else: the power of celebrity' That's what Anita Hill thinks. That's what other prominent feminists think too. The New Yorker had an interview with Anita Hill about why the Weinstein stories took hold: because the accusers were celebrity women.

During the 2016 Presidential campaign, eleven women accused Donald Trump of making unwanted sexual advances toward them. Following a well-worn playbook used by other previous accused sexual harassers, Trump dismissed the women as 'horrible, horrible liars' and their allegations as 'pure fiction.' The women's voices swayed very few voters, it would seem. Even after the 'Access Hollywood' tape surfaced, allowing voters to hear Trump boasting about 'grabbing' women 'by the p–sy,' he was elected President. Among those who put his candidacy over the top (at least in the Electoral College) were fifty-three per cent of white female voters.

So why have Harvey Weinstein's alleged transgressions been taken so much more seriously' One answer, it seems, has less to do with the accused than the accuser. Weinstein's sexual-harassment scandal is unlike almost every other in recent memory because many of his accusers are celebrities, with status, fame, and success commensurate to his own. Sexual harassment is about power, not sex, and it has taken women of extraordinary power to overcome the disadvantage that most accusers face. As Susan Faludi, the author of 'Backlash: the Undeclared War Against Women,' put it in an e-mail to me, 'Power belongs only to the celebrities these days. If only Trump had harassed Angelina Jolie. . . .'

Anita Hill, a woman with unusual insight into this topic, agrees that the nature of Weinstein's accusers is the reason that his exposure has proved to be a watershed moment. In a phone interview, Hill emphasized that sexual-harassment cases live and die on the basis of 'believability,' and that, in order for the accusers to prevail, 'they have to fit a narrative' that the public will buy. At least until now, very few women have had that standing.

Hill, who is now a law professor at Brandeis University, told me that what Clarence Thomas possessed, like many accused harassers, and unlike many accusers, was a winning 'narrative.' The lynching story resonated deeply. Without a similarly widely accepted narrative, Hill was vulnerable to detractors supplying their own readings'imputing false motives, insinuating psychological problems, and smearing her, as the American Spectator notoriously did, as 'a bit nutty and a bit slutty.'

In contrast, Hill pointed out, 'the Hollywood-starlet narrative is part of the folklore. The casting couch is a long-standing issue.' In addition, she told me, 'people often believe the myth that only conventionally beautiful women are harassed'and so it didn't seem that far-fetched to people that this would happen to beautiful starlets who we all know and love.'

Hill says she is 'hopeful' that, in light of the Weinstein affair and other recent sexual-harassment revelations against powerful bosses, 'people will revisit the women' who accused Trump. But she fears that the Weinstein lesson 'won't translate to everyday women, or even those in high-profile careers in places like Silicon Valley,' who still don't have the fame, success, and standing of movie stars. 'We need to transfer the believability,' Hill said. She argued that the public needs to understand that Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie 'are just like women down the street. People need to take this moment to make clear that this is not just about Hollywood.'

I believe that Hill and Faludi are fundamentally right about the 'narratives' of the accusers/victims. But I also think there's something else at play, especially given that Donald Trump actually did have a history of making crude, ridiculous statements to and about celebrity women. During the 2016 election, several A-list, B-list and C-list women came forward to talk about Trump acting like a pig (remember Salma Hayek's stories about him'). Trump actually had a long history of trashing and negging Angelina Jolie specifically, remember that' So, something else is at play – and guess what' That 'something else' is probably racism. White, female Trump voters were fine with looking the other way when Trump's accusers came forward because Trump spoke their language when it came to racist bullsh–t.

Kate Hudson 'kind of liked' the rumor that she was dating Brad Pitt

Kate Hudson 'kind of liked' the rumor that she was dating Brad Pitt
The charming Kate Hudson, who is almost making me love that buzz cut (not for me…never…but it's growing on me when Kate rocks it) is making the promotional rounds for her new cooking/entertaining/doing things none of us mere mortals have any sort of time to do book Pretty Fun.

While making the late night rounds, the 38-year-old actress appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday night. Host Andy Cohen asked her about rumors surrounding her being romantically linked with Brad Pitt earlier this year after his split with Angelina Jolie. Kate, who has been with rocker Danny Fujikawa since last December, recalled, 'That was the craziest rumor of all time,' adding 'There's nothing true to that. As a matter of fact. I hadn't actually seen him in, like, four years. It was kind of an awesome rumor. I kind of liked it. I was like, 'OK, fine. We're having twins!’'

Kate's not the only one who got laugh from the rumors. Her brother Oliver, who will always and forever be Jeff Fordham from Nashville to me (#sorrynotsorry #ripjeff), posted an image at the time of one of the tabloid covers reporting on the faux couple to Instagram, adding an obscenity-laden, hilarious snarky caption that read, in part, 'He drinks out of the f' carton and he leaves the door open when he's taking a dump!! And this is when he's at MY house!!! He's already calling me brother and has driven a wedge between myself and my real brother Wyatt who now won't speak to me.' Marry me, Oliver – and not only because I want Kurt, Goldie and Kate as my in-laws.

Perhaps due to drag queen bartenders Trixie Mattel and Katya and their on-set cocktails, Kate was in a chatty, sharing mood, as was fellow WWHL guest Colin Hanks. While taking questions from callers, one fan asked if she's spoken to Cher since THE QUEEN ranted on Twitter about Kate's Fabletics activewear line. Kate responded by giggling and simply answered 'That's hilarious…NO.'

Kate also gushed about Sia, who directed her in Sia’s debut film, Sister (fun fact: Sia does take off her wig when she directs). On the movie that put her on Hollywood's radar, Cameron Crowe’s 2000 film Almost Famous, Kate noted that 'It holds up.' She went on to say that 'I just watched it with Ryder not too long ago. It was really cool to watch that because I hadn't seen that in so long and it's still cool. Ryder, he's 13, so to him it was like, he loved every second of that movie. It's cool to be a part of a movie like that.'

As for the possibility of Almost Famous 2, don't hold your breath. Says Kate, 'I would say a sequel to — I got a couple. Almost Famous would be fun, but I wouldn’t wanna touch that. But maybe How to Lose a Guy. That would be fun.' Would it, really' The original really seemed like a one and done to me. Let's leave it at that.

And how's this for a little bit of dish' When asked by a caller to the show how her friend and fellow actress Liv Tyler ranked in on-screen kisses (they shared a smooch in 2000's Dr. T and the Women), Kate admitted, 'she’s my best friend so, I’d have to say way up there. Top three'” Recalling making the film, she said, 'It’s so funny ’cause Liv and I talk about this all the time. We’re like, ‘We should’ve gone for it more.’ It was so sweet, you know' It was such a sweet kiss. We should’ve just really made out. I don’t know why we didn’t.” Aww. I'm glad Andy liquors up his guests because this was a fun interview. Not fun enough for me to get cable again or anything, but fun nonetheless.

Tom Hiddleston stepped out with a brunette just before Swifty's album dropped
Back in the glory days of the Uncool Bermuda Triangle – involving Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston – it was quite common for Angelina to step out for a convenient photo-op just before one of Aniston's films was released, just as it was quite common for Aniston stories or photos to crop out right before a big promotional swing from Brad or Angelina. It was a delightful bit of passive-aggression and it went on for years. It's one of the things I'm going to miss most about the end of Brangelina, honestly. But that kind of passive-aggressive celebrity bullsh-t lives on, and I am here for it.

Taylor Swift's Reputation dropped today. We've been talking about Tay for weeks/months, and we'll be talking about her for months too. Many were worried that Taylor was going to try to steal some of Tom Hiddleston's Thor: Ragnarok thunder, but as it turns out, Hiddles was practically a ghost during the promotional swing, so there was no thunder to steal. Except Ol' Hiddles pulled a fast one on everyone and came out swinging, in a posh passive aggressive way. He stepped out with a gorgeous brunette just hours before Reputation dropped. Bless him!

Angelina Jolie in a sweater dress & ankle booties: super-cute or not so much?
Since everyone seems to enjoy talking about Angelina Jolie's fashion these days, please enjoy these photos of Angelina over the weekend. She attended an event for the Directors Guild of America, a guild of which she is a member. I assume this was some kind of screening or Oscar-voter event. There's no real dress code for that kind of thing – it's just a screening, not a premiere, and celebrities and directors generally just wear something professional-looking, like a suit or a conservative dress. Angelina chose to do something rare (for her) these days: a chunky sweater minidress and a ankle booties. I like the sweater dress just fine – it's black and sacky and that's why she chose it. But the ankle booties' HATE. I always hate them, on any and every woman though. I just don't think they're comfortable or flattering. Still, this is a cute, 'youthful' look for Jolie. I feel like her kids might be styling her these days.

Of all the Oscar campaign hustlers out there this year, Angelina is one of the top hustlers, right up there with Margot Robbie and Armie Hammer. Angelina is really working for a Best Foreign Film Oscar nomination for First They Killed My Father. Will it work' Perhaps. The better question is: if it doesn't work, will people say that Angelina is not respected in Hollywood' Will they say that Brad Pitt 'won' Hollywood in their divorce' That's what worries me, that people are putting too many expectations on what all of this will mean.

Angelina also sat down with Deadline for their 'Contenders' series, which is just Oscar hype too. You can read Jolie's Deadline thing here – she doesn't say anything new, but it's still rather interesting.
