Jennifer Aniston & Angelina Jolie have signed up to present at the Golden Globes

Jennifer Aniston & Angelina Jolie have signed up to present at the Golden Globes
FINALLY SOME FUN GOSSIP TODAY. I?m so tired of the gut-wrenching revelations from Michael Wolff?s Trump book, and I was in dire need of some fun celebrity crap, and here it is: the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is going to give us some old-school Uncool Bermuda-Triangle Dramz!! Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston have both signed on as presenters at the Golden Globes on Sunday. GOOD. I HOPE THEY PRESENT TOGETHER. I HOPE THE LEG OF DOOM COMES OUT TO PLAY.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has been slowly rolling out the list of presenters for the 2018 Golden Globes, and in the last day, four new actresses have been added to the mix: Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Helen Mirren and Emma Stone. Aniston and Jolie, who share a mutual ex in Brad Pitt, rarely attend the same events?but this year’s award ceremony is all about women coming together, thanks to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, and it’s message is bigger than the tabloid stories they’ve both worked so hard to ignore over the years.

Aniston recently donated $500,000 to the Time’s Up GoFundMe campaign; the money is going toward a legal defense fund, providing subsidized assistance to men and women who suffer sexual abuse, assault or harassment while at work?regardless of the industry they all work in.

Jolie, meanwhile, was among the dozens of actresses who publicly spoke out against disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein. “I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did,” Jolie told The New York Times. “This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable.”

[From E! News]

I don?t have any doubt that both Jolie and Aniston will be wearing black. Jolie?s black dress will probably be of the sack variety, while Aniston?s black dress will probably have a few sparkles, maybe a side-slit to the thigh. Aniston will come to the Globes with Justin Theroux, and Angelina will either go solo, or she?ll bring one of her kids, maybe. That might not be the worst idea for her – if she brings Maddox as her date, there won?t be the same kind of ?OMG UNCOOL DRAMA? around the Globe stories. Anyway, this is just something to look forward to on Sunday? vintage gossip, almost. Will they be seated close to each other? Will they say anything to each other? Will the camera find Jolie?s face when Aniston is on the stage and vice versa? It?s almost a sweet relief to talk about this kind of thing.

Angelina Jolie's 'FTKMF' wasn't shortlisted for the Best Foreign Film Oscar

Angelina Jolie's 'FTKMF' wasn't shortlisted for the Best Foreign Film Oscar
Angelina Jolie brought all of her kids to New York last week. Jolie was still shilling for her Cambodian film, First They Killed My Father, and doing press and events for promotion. Friday night, Jolie and all of the kids attended the 2017 UN Correspondents Association Awards at the Cipriani?s – Jolie was decked out in a strapless black satin dress with some kind of white feature at the back (it looked like a bow with a train). It seemed like a frigid, windy night and Jolie was not dressed for it, as evidenced by these photos. Her kids seem to be trying to help their mom get to the car quickly as they made their exit from Cipriani?s. Jolie attended the event – with her kids – because she won the 2017 UNCA Global Citizen of the Year Award.

Speaking of awards, it sounds like Jolie?s big Oscar campaign has already come to an end. Last week, the Academy released their ?shortlist? for Best Foreign Film, and First They Killed My Father did not make the list of nine. Neither did the highly acclaimed French film BPM, which premiered at this year?s Cannes to a lot of emotion and controversy (it?s a mostly true story about the start of the AIDS crisis in France). Jolie?s FTKMF did get a Golden Globe nomination and that will probably be the last we see of her during the awards season? unless she?s invited to present at the Oscars or something, which might happen, you never know. I?m a little bit disappointed to see that the Academy didn?t shortlist FTKMF, but I also think it might be a blessing in disguise: a real, substantial Oscar push would have brought up more uncomfortable questions and Jolie didn?t know how to answer the questions she was getting.

PS? I honestly believe her kids are styling her these days for events. Like, Zahara and Pax are carefully selecting Jolie?s dresses and gowns and they have veto power on the sack dresses.

Angelina Jolie coauthors Guardian op-ed with NATO sec-general Jens Stoltenberg

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.

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?

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.

Angelina Jolie wore a Jenny Packham robe at the Hollywood Film Awards

Angelina Jolie wore a Jenny Packham robe at the Hollywood Film Awards
This is one way of cutting down on awards-show fatigue: refusing to televise previously televised awards shows. If an actor gets an award and it?s not on TV, does it still make a sound? I don?t know. The Hollywood Film Awards were held last night, and in previous years, this was (going from memory) a televised event. But not this year. You can see the list of winners here – Kate Winslet took home an award, as did Gary Oldman, the cast of I, Tonya, Sam Rockwell, Allison Janney and more.

Angelina Jolie picked up the award for Best Foreign Film for First They Killed My Father. This was actually the second event Angelina did this weekend for her Oscar campaign – she also did some kind of Directors Guild of America Oscar screening too. Angelina decided to go with a silver-grey Jenny Packham gown, Charlotte Olympia shoes and jewelry from Tiffany?s. I mean? she looks like she?s wearing a robe. It?s a lovely robe! I would love to own this robe. But it?s a robe, not a gown. I suspect she chose it because A) she loves any shade of grey and silver-grey and B) because it seemed comfortable and loose. I keep hoping that Jolie will really wow us with her post-Brad wardrobe, but it?s really not happening.

Margot provides yet another example of why people need to stop wearing Louis Vuitton.

I LOVE Elizabeth Olsen?s Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo. LOVE. IT.

Viola Davis wore Alberta Ferretti, and Mary J. Blige wore Zuhair Murad. I don?t think this is the color for Viola – she looks better in anything lighter, brighter or more saturated.

Angelina Jolie 'lost her temper, got testy' when asked about Brad in an interview

Angelina Jolie 'lost her temper, got testy' when asked about Brad in an interview
The other day, a die-hard stan for Angelina Jolie accused me of being anti-Jolie. Truly! Like I haven?t spent years polishing my Team Jolie medals. I?ve been ride-or-die Team Jolie for years, and I?ve been following her career, her ups and downs, her personal life and humanitarian work for years. All that being said, my girl is not perfect. She is human, she makes mistakes, she f–ks it all up occassionally, and she?s not the best at everything. A shocking admission from me, I?m sure!

For years, Jolie was really good at media management – she rarely worked with a personal publicist, preferring to organize her own personal and professional media commitments herself (or working with a studio publicist). That worked for her for years. But we?re now in 2017, and she?s going through a bitter divorce, her health is not at 100% and her focus is (rightly) on her kids rather than media relations. Which is why I think she should actually hire a real publicist right now. Because she?s f–king it up. The Vanity Fair thing was a debacle which is currently haunting the press around her film. And she should know by now that of course she?s going to get questions about Brad, and she needs to have better answers:

When ABC?s Juju Chang delicately raised the subject of Angelina Jolie?s divorce during an interview for ?Nightline? last week, the actress/director lost her temper and refused to answer. But that footage never aired.

?It?s true she got testy,? one source said. Jolie only wanted to promote ?First They Killed My Father,? the movie she directed about the genocide in Cambodia.

?It?s hard to believe she didn?t know that question was coming,? a network veteran said. ?Chang was just doing her job.?

When Chang asked Jolie, 42, about her much-publicized health issues ? hypertension and Bell?s palsy ? Jolie was clearly annoyed.

?I?m fine right now. I?m fine right now,? Jolie said. ?My children are healthy. I?m healthy.?

Jolie had her six children ? led by her oldest, Maddox, 16, who was adopted from Cambodia ? on the red carpet for the movie?s premiere, along with the child actors who appeared in her passion project. A member of Team Brad scoffed, ?She uses her kids as props.?

Jolie?s reps could not be reached for comment.

[From Page Six]

A member of Team Brad ?scoffed? and said ?she uses HER kids as props.? Huh. Something tells me Brad would love to use HER kids as props, if only the kids actually wanted to spend time with him. As for Angelina getting ?testy? – I have no idea. It?s all about tone, but I could see her getting testy, or seeming pissed off about those questions. And yes, she should have known that she would get those questions. This is what I?m saying: she has a lot on her plate right now. Hire help. There are professional publicists who know how to manage this kind of sh-t.

Angelina Jolie's 'First They Killed' will be eligible for the Best Foreign Film Oscar

Angelina Jolie's 'First They Killed' will be eligible for the Best Foreign Film Oscar
Angelina Jolie?s latest film, First They Killed My Father, debuted on Netflix over the weekend. Over the past few years, the rules have been smudged a little bit when it comes to streaming-service films and their eligibility for film awards. I think the current rule is that a streaming-service film can be considered for Golden Globes, SAGs, Oscars, etc, but only if there?s some kind of limited-release in actual brick-and-mortar theaters. I believe Netflix did something similar for the Oscar campaign around Beasts of No Nation – they spent the money to do a very limited theatrical release, but they were mostly focuses on the streaming. I would imagine they?re doing the same thing for FTKMF. And now we know that Cambodia?s Oscar Selection Committee has chosen Jolie?s film to be their candidate for the Best Foreign Film Oscar category.

It’s official: Angelina Jolie’s fourth film as a director, First They Killed My Father, is Cambodia’s submission for the best foreign-language film Oscar at the 90th Academy Awards.

“This means a great deal to all of us involved in making the film,” Jolie said in a statement in response to the news. “To work with local artists to bring this story forward has been a moving and humbling experience,” she added.

First They Killed My Father, was fully financed and produced by Netflix. The film is an adaptation of a memoir by Cambodian writer Loung Ung about her childhood experience of surviving the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge genocide. Untrained child actor Sareum Srey Moch has won rave reviews for her portrayal of the lead.

The Cambodia Oscar Selection Committee announced its pick Monday, saying: “First They Killed My Father explores a tragic period of history through the eyes of a child. Dialogue is at a minimum and it works well with the story told through intense cinematic images. Committee members as well as the Khmer community found the film to be cathartic, as it brought back memories often best forgotten.”

First They Killed My Father is currently screening theatrically at all major cinemas in Cambodia. Despite Netflix’s notoriety for eschewing the big screen, it’s understood that Jolie, who holds dual citizenship with Cambodia and adopted one of her children from there, felt it was important that the movie be made widely available in the country. “We’re making this first and foremost for Cambodia,” she said during the film’s U.S. premiere at Telluride last week.

The movie is also co-produced by Cambodian auteur and past Oscar nominee Rithy Panh (The Missing Picture), whose Phnom Penh-based company Bophana Production supplied production services to the project. The Missing Picture is the only Cambodian film ever be nominated for the foreign-language Oscar.

[From THR]

I pay attention to the foreign-film race when it starts heating up in January of any given year. The actual Oscar campaigning for the foreign-film categories largely fly under the radar, and let?s be honest: most of the campaigns hinge on a big name or a groundbreaking performance to get through. In years past, European films have largely dominated, although Spanish-language and Farsi-language films have been making significant inroads. I?m saying that I don?t really know what to expect here – my guess is that the film could end up with a nomination, but I doubt it would win.

Angelina Jolie stopped by the UN to meet with the Secretary-General
True or false: Angelina Jolie has no style. I think that?s false, but I have my reasons. If we?re saying that Angelina has had bad red-carpet style for the better part of a decade, then sure, I?ll agree with that. But I actually think she has a good eye for separates and professional attire. She has a good eye for suits, pencil skirts, coats, blouses, tote bags, sweaters and well-cut slacks. I?d actually love it she started wearing those kinds of clothes to premieres instead of trying to figure out how to work a sparkly sack dress or whatever.

Anyway, these are photos of Angelina at the United Nations yesterday. She wore a flattering mid-length pencil skirt and simple blouse. This is how she should dress more often, right? Right. And I love her red-burgundy purse. Angelina and the kids flew to New York from Toronto a few days ago, and I guess Angelina wanted to check in with her UN friends. She had some kind of meeting/photo-op with UN Secretary General Antnio Guterres. Guterres used to be the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, so they?ve known each other for probably fifteen years or so.

Angelina Jolie in Dior at the NYC 'FTKMF' premiere: princessy or boring'
Here are some photos of Angelina Jolie and the kids at last night?s big New York premiere of First They Killed My Father. Do you recognize the designer ID without me saying it? It?s Dior! Ugh. Dior shuffled off a greyish tulle gown to Angelina instead of Jennifer Lawrence. J-Law must have been like ?another full-skirted princess dress? No thanks.? So they gave it to Angelina and I?m still not feeling it. The stripe on the skirt is sort of interesting, although I initially mistook it for a ?tier? or a ruffle and I was like ?nope.? This dress isn?t actually the worst thing, I just wish Angelina had chosen something else.

Angelina brought her kids to New York, of course, but they didn?t completely walk the red carpet with their mom. It seemed to be like this: Angelina posed solo for a little bit, then she posed with the president of Netflix, then she posed with Maddox and Pax, and then all the kids posed with Angelina and the cast. All the kids wore yellow flowers too – E! News says the yellow flowers are plumerias, ?which symbolize positivity and are used to celebrate special occasions.?

Angelina also told People Magazine in Toronto that her kids made her change clothes before she did press during the film festival: ?The reason I was a little late [to the interview] is they made me change. They thought what I was wearing was too revealing.? I kind of wonder if the same thing happened at this premiere? Like, Angelina was going to wear a black leather ensemble and her kids vetoed it and wanted her to wear the romantic princess dress?
