Humanitarian honor for Jolie

LOS ANGELES - Brad Pitt kissed Angelina Jolie after her grand entrance at the film academy’s Governors Awards on Saturday night.

Steve Martin pretended to take a seat at the wrong table a few times before finding the right one, while Angela Lansbury beamed as she entered the room.

The honorary Oscar winners, along with Italian costume designer Piero Tosi, were honored at a private dinner at the Hollywood & Highland Center.

Tosi wasn’t able to attend, but scores of A-listers did, including Tom Hanks, Martin Short, Diane Keaton, Octavia Spencer and Mark Wahlberg.

Jolie received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, while Martin, Lansbury and Tosi were given honorary Academy Awards for their distinguished careers.

“Receiving the Hersholt award makes me feel like I am on the right path, but also reminds me I have more to do,” Jolie told The Associated Press this past week.

The actress-director is co-founder of the Prevent Sexual Violence Initiative and serves as special envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
