Apr 24, Minutes. The dramatic, spiritual memoir of a prominent Muslim woman working to empower women and girls across the world—for readers of Malala Yousafzai and Azar Nafisi. Ambitious and talented, she quickly climbed the corporate ladder after college as an architectural designer in New York City.
Though she loved the freedom that came with being a career woman, she felt that something was missing from her life. One day a friend suggested that she visit a Sufi mosque in Tribeca.
It powerfully demonstrates what one woman can do—with faith, love, and resilience. This beautiful story of her spiritual journey is an inspiration to anyone who seeks to change the world. Through her own story, and the stories of other change-makers, Khan reminds us how Muslim women are asserting their rights while holding fast to their faith.

A testament to courage and resilience as well as an important chapter in the story of American Muslims and women of faith.

Gorgeous film. Plus I called it. So yeah. I win! Controversial stuff. Gutted for The Pirates! This is good for everyone. I called a clean sweep of technicals. Think I may have been right…. Hugely deservingly. I think I called that. Did I call that? Even though she may be the worst Bond girl ever. I did not see it, so have no comment to make. Best Documentary Short goes to Inocente.
The pressor and metabolic effects of alcohol in normotensive subjects.
And to talk a swipe at Seth. Some of them are going to be awful. Just get to Les Mis already! Epic tune. Better than in the movie! Sure they went down a treat with the audience. This very rarely happens. Zero Dark Thirty takes the first…. Clever stuff. Nice job Anne Hathaway! I like to work in film museums. Can I work there please? One of the most important of all — let it never be forgotten.
I called Argo. Argo takes Best Editing. William Goldenberg did a terrific job, especially in the opening scenes. I think I actually called that one! Hooray for Lincoln! Hooray for me! Tears time! That… sort of makes sense. That puts it well in the lead tonight! A nice touch. The unoriginal odd couple. Now some writing awards.

Pretty much seals the deal for Best Picture later…. Best Director is on the way…. Ang Lee takes it for Life of Pi! This could mean a lot of things. Terrible for Spielberg, but a deserved win all the same. And then she fell on the steps going up. At least she made a gag about it! Who makes a great joke to Streep about swapping Lincoln for Thatcher. What a brilliant, if strange, surprise! No big surprise, other than in the way it was read out.
The whole team seem a little upset at him not getting that nomination. The credits roll, no one really cares any more. A decent show. Now to look forward to tomorrow when the average person once again no longer cares very much about the movies. Hope you enjoyed following. Good night to all! Clothed in immense power: Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln surveying the horrors of war.
There is a spirit that runs through much of American history, often buried these days in the politics of our age, of never giving up the fight. Though the USA has often taken far too long to join the fight world wars, civil rights issues , once it starts, change, and victory, follow rapidly.
