J.Lo To Receive Amnesty Award For Film
Well, look who’s gone and landed in our good books this time around. Jennifer Lopez is receiving a nod from Artists For Amnesty for her work on a film entitled Bordertown. The movie is about the murders of hundreds of women that took place in a town in Mexico.
“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.”
Artists For Amnesty has also supported other films such as Blood Diamond, The Constant Gardener, and Lord Of War in the past, but it looks like this award for a film is a first. Let us know if we’re wrong about that detail, though.
J.Lo’s latest accomplishment won’t change the fact that she’s getting no love from animal rights groups, but it’s good to hear that she’s putting her efforts into a very important project.
