Journos in headlines

Courage in Journalism Awards honors best

HOLLYWOOD — Big names like Angelina Jolie, Meg Ryan and Maria Shriver turned the spotlight on journos Tuesday at the Courage in Journalism Awards at the BevHills Hotel.

The evening honored journalists from all over the world including Mexico’s Lydia Cacho, Zimbabwe’s Peta Thornycroft and Ethiopia’s Serkalem Fasil as well as Baghdad reporters Huda Ahmed, Shatha al Awsy, Sahar Issa, Alaa Majeed, Zaineb Obeid and Ban Adil Sarhan.

Jolie said she was there to honor “real journalism,” which she hoped, “doesn’t get clouded by false stories whether they’re about me or anybody else.”

Also on hand was Sony’s Michael Lynton who seemed a bit star struck by the honorees. “What these women have achieved makes what I do on a daily basis seem very small,” he said. “Thanks to CGI our superheroes can do amazing things but the magic of Hollywood pales in comparison with the power of [these] very real superheroes and they need no special effects.”
