Angelina Jolie says her Oscar nomination is “a privilege beyond any expectation”.
The 33-year-old actress – who has been named in the Best Actress category
for her role in ‘The Changeling’ – added her year has been “exceptional” and
credited the movie’s director Clint Eastwood for helping her gain the
Academy Award nod.
She said: “Working with Clint Eastwood was a reward in itself that will last
me a lifetime. To receive a nomination from the Academy on top of that is a
privilege beyond any expectation. It has been an exceptional year for
acting, and I am honoured to be in the company of these talented actors
whose performances all deserve this recognition.”
Angelina’s partner Brad Pitt – who is up for Best Actor for his part in ‘The
Curious Case of Benjamin Button’, which received a staggering 13 nominations
– was equally as thrilled to be up for a prestigious accolade.
He said: “It’s a great honour for the movie. I'm especially happy for Best
Director nominee David Fincher, for without him there would be no Ben
Button.”
Mickey Rourke said he was “tickled pink” to receive a nod in the Best Actor
category for his part in ‘The Wrestler.”
He revealed: “I’m very grateful and appreciative of this incredible honour.
I’m tickled pink.”
Anne Hathaway, who will vie with Angelina Jolie – as well as Melissa Leo for
'Frozen River',
Meryl Street in 'Doubt' and Kate Winslet for 'The Reader' – for the Best
Actress prize for her role in ‘Rachel Getting Married’, said: “It is such a
thrill to be recognised in this category with these remarkably talented
women. I was with my parents and my dog when I got the news and we were all
overjoyed - although I'm not sure my dog knew what was going on! This is a
great day to be an actress!"
Kate Winslet was similarly as excited, adding: “I'm extremely happy to have
been nominated. And very fortunate. Playing Hanna Schmitz will always remain
one of the biggest challenges I've ever been blessed with.”
