Why the Divorce War Rages On: What Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Really Want From Each Other at This Point

Why the Divorce War Rages On: What Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Really Want From Each Other at This Point
How did this happen? More than two years after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, the two movie stars who once were Hollywood's premiere A-list golden couple remain at odds, terms of custody still hanging in the balance and a deadline looming for them to figure out what they want—or else a judge could end up figuring it out for them. While the parents of six once shared everything, from multiple homes to plans for the future, they have seemingly whittled their combined interests down to wanting what's best for their children, and concern about the long-term effects their protracted legal battle will have on Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne...

Helena Christensen Urges Support For World’s Most Underfunded Refugee Crisis

Unhcr High profile supporter, model and photographer Helena Christensen is calling for urgent funding and global attention for Burundian refugees living in Rwanda following a trip with Unhcr, the Un Refugee Agency.

Helena Christensen visits Burundian refugees in Rwanda

Christensen has just returned from Rwanda, where she met and photographed refugees who fled violence and persecution in Burundi and are now living in Rwanda’s Mahama refugee camp. Helena said, “The Burundian refugee crisis is now the most under-funded in the world. It is a crisis that people have not heard of and for which there is little attention. This needs to change. Because without funding, these refugees who have fled terrifying violence in Burundi – although they are now in safety in camps like Mahama they will not receive the basic shelter, food and support they need.

Like father, like son: Spike Lee could direct John David Washington to an Oscar nom 26 years after his dad

Like father, like son: Spike Lee could direct John David Washington to an Oscar nom 26 years after his dad
The Oscars often like to keep it in the family. Consider two-time nominee Laura Dern, the daughter of Oscar nominees Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern; Oscar winner Angelina Jolie, the daughter of fellow champ Jon Voight; and those multi-generational Oscar winning Hustons, Fondas and Coppolas. But this year could bring an unusual twist to that story of awards inheritance: John David Washington (“BlacKkKlansman”) could earn a Best Actor nomination 26 years after his dad Denzel Washington was nominated in the same category for “Malcolm X” (1992) — both from the same director, Spike Lee.

It’s not unprecedented for the same filmmaker to direct Oscar nominated performances from the same family. Dern and her mom Ladd actually earned nominations for the same film, “Rambling Rose” (1991) by Martha Coolidge. And the Hustons kept it all in the family: filmmaker John Huston directed his dad Walter Huston to a Best Supporting Actor Oscar win for

European Films Fill Oscar Foreign-Language Race (Analysis)

  • Variety
The Oscar for foreign-language film may ostensibly represent world cinema at an evening otherwise largely dedicated to Hollywood, but it’s marked by its own form of cultural hegemony: Eurocentrism.

Of the 70 foreign-language films (including special award winners) honored as the year’s best by the Academy, a whopping 56 have been from Europe. For the less math-inclined, that’s 80% — a figure attributable in part to the relative density of developed film industries on the Continent, whatever other biases may be at play. Of the national submissions for this year’s award, for example, more than 40% are European productions — including many of those most hotly tipped for a nomination.

Arguably the film leading this year’s European charge comes from a recent winner in the category: Poland’s Pawel Pawlikowski, whose arthouse smash “Ida” cut a clear path to victory in the 2014 season.
