    Default Jennifer Lopez to get human rights award

    Jennifer Lopez to get human rights award - Yahoo! News

    Jennifer Lopez will receive an award for her work as producer and star of a film examining the murders of hundreds of women in a Mexican border town, Amnesty International officials said Friday.
    Lopez will receive the Artists for Amnesty award Feb. 14 at the Berlin Film Festival from Nobel Peace Prize winner Jose Ramos-Horta. The film "Bordertown" will make its debut Feb. 15 at the festival.
    In "Bordertown," Lopez plays an investigative journalist reporting on the serial killings of women in the border city of Juarez, Mexico. Directed by Gregory Nava, the film also stars Antonio Banderas and Martin Sheen.
    "Since first hearing of these atrocities in 1998, when Gregory Nava came to me with this project, I desperately wanted to tell this story," Lopez said. "I began working to ensure we made this film in order to bring the attention of the world to this tragedy and to pressure the Mexican government to bring to justice those responsible for these horrible crimes."
    Lopez, 36, screened the film for some of the mothers of women killed in Juarez and will receive special recognition from Norma Andrade, co-founder of Nuestras Hijas de Regreso a Casa (Bring Our Daughters Home), an organization comprising mothers and families of the murdered women of Juarez.

    How can someone care for humans and not for animals?
    Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you.

    Some people think humans are greater than animals, the whole food chain thing.

    yes, she'll show up for her award decked out in major bling and furs and be so smug and gracious at the same time and not know why everyone doesn't love and admire her even more.
    I feel that she's so patently shallow that everything she says is just strategically contrived in my opinion.

    I think that it's a good thing that she's doing a film on the women of Juarez. I don't think it's worth a human rights award.

    This is just like in high school. These awards don't go to the most deserving people. They go to the most deserving popular person (celebrity), despite the fact that when compared to other non-stars, they range from equal qualifications to significantly underqualified.

    The thought of JLo getting a humanitarian award is kind of hilarious-if it didn't happen for real, I would never believe it.
