In case you were wondering how Angelina Jolie’s In Land of Blood and Honey directorial debut would go, well, let’s just say that the reception into the directing world has been warm. So much so that (I think) peeps are looking more at Jolie’s talent behind the camera rather than at her juicy plumpers.
Jolie has been awarded her first award as a director, receiving the Producers Guild of America’s 2012 Stanley Kramer award.
So what is the Stanley Kramer award?
For those of us not-so knowledgeable movie nuts (such as myself), this award is given to movies that do a fabulous job of highlighting “provocative social issues”.
Previous winners of this award include: I Am Sam, Hotel Rwanda, Milk and Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire.
Of the flick Producers Guild presidents Hawk Koch and Mark Gordon release the following statement, “In The Land Of Blood And Honey is an extraordinary film that portrays a complex love story set against the terrors of the Bosnian war, especially towards women.”
Congratulations Angelina! Obviously girlfriend can do no wrong in the film world.
