Jane Goodall Denied the Oscars Red Carpet

Somewhere, right now, Jane Goodall is kicking over chairs, breaking stuff, firing staff, and cursing the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

In reality, she’s probably sipping tea, sighing, and turning her attention towards her next conservation effort – but it’s a bummer nonetheless that the documentary about her life, “Jane’s Journey”, failed to receive an Oscar nom this morning.

The film, which was short-listed for the honor, gives viewers an “intimate portrait of the private person behind the world-famous icon.”

I spoke with Goodall last week while she was waiting for a flight to England out of Iowa (full interview coming soon!), and she told me that if the film was nominated, she promised the film team that she would walk the red carpet and attend the ceremony.

“It’s such a brilliant film team that made that movie, and they would die if I didn’t make it,” she said.

Alas, it wasn’t meant to be – and talk about a wonderful candidate to participate in Livia Firth’s Green Carpet Challenge as well! Darn! Who wants to see her crash it?

Join me in kicking over a chair in solidarity. You can view the trailer for “Jane’s Journey” below.
