For all of the work that Angelina Jolie does for others around the world, she is finally being recognized for it. She is scheduled to receive a honorary Oscar for her Humanitarian work, along with Steve Martin and Angela Lansbury. Piero Tosi, a costume designer, will also be presented with an award. Angelina Jolie is a famous actress, appearing in films such as Changeling, Salt, and many others. For her role in Changeling, she was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar in 2008. She also won Best Supporting Actress for her role in Girl, Interrupted, which came out in 2000. The honorary awards will be presented by the Board of Governors Of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the same organization that presents the Oscars each year.

She will receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for the volunteer work that she has done around the world. The award is named after the Danish actor and philanthropist who served as president of the Motion Picture Relief Fund, said US Weekly. Previous winners include Oprah Winfrey, Paul Newman and Audrey Hepburn.

According to CBS News, Jolie has traveled around the world on behalf of several organizations. She has worked with The Council on Foreign Affairs and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees, bridging a gap between her film career and her work as a humanitarian. She is able to make such a difference in the lives of people around the world and be accepted everywhere, partly because of her success in film. Jolie often gets attention for her films and her marriage, but recognition like this is what is really important and it is good to see her presented with this type of an award.

It is always good to see celebrities like Jolie who choose to do something with positive with their time and money. The actions that she has made in recent years have been able to benefit people all over the world, which sends a very positive message and sets an example for other celebrities who could do similar things. In addition to these types of actions when she visits places such as Ecuador and Pakistan, there are the children that she has adopted from various parts of the world, living in poverty. This includes her oldest son Maddox, who is now 12 years old. She adopted him from an orphanage in Cambodia.

The presentation of the awards will happen on November 16, 2013.

    Oscars awards are sold. This is what is called pure Yankee Imperialism. Angelina Jolie always want to favor their country. Recently, for example, She give excuses to attack Syria: “Thousands of innocent children have died in terrible circumstances, including the recent attack near Damascus” . Why not speak to stop the attack on Syria, Angelina Jolie?
    World horror. Evil people rewarding evil people. Angelina jolie may have done a lot of humanitarian work and all that. But she has not repented of the evil committed in the past: as make life miserable for other women or torturing their pets. Worse still always walks around with that big smile of “I made so many evils and I got my way. ” For now you are smilingly Angelina, but in the judgment of God, your legs will tremble. There are not things by halves: either you’re good, bad or hypocrite. Concerning angelina, I do not believe in his humanitarianism because She committed evils . Great injustices that God has not forgotten . Other lie: Forbes appointed Angelina Jolie the highest paid women in Hollywood: What a great lie! She has done not films in three years. Forbes is equals pure lies. DIRTY OLD MEN are in the Oscars and Forbes. How many of them had sex with Angelina? But for all those who support the slut of the Jolie: buy yourself a new heart.. Angelina Jolie has destroyed the lives of innocent women and she and all her fans will have to deal in divine judgment. God still watches.
