Well we can all go ahead and expect to see Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie on the red carpet at the Golden Globes in 2009! Both of them have nominations this year, and I am so excited!
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is up for Best Motion Picture – Drama (up against Frost/Nixon, The Reader, Revolutionary Road, and Slumdog Millionaire (which is hear is excellent too).
Angelina Jolie is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for her role in Changeling. She has competition from Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Kate Winslet – all excellent actresses, good company!
Brad Pitt is also up for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama for Benjamin Button and will go head-to-head with Leo DiCaprio, Frank Langella, Sean Penn, and Mickey Rourke.
As if that weren’t enough, Burn After Reading is nominated for Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical, Kung Fu Panda is nominated for Best Animated Feature Film (may have trouble with Wall-E!), and David Fincher is up for Best Director – Motion Picture for Benjamin Button while Eric Roth got it nominated for Best Screenplay – Motion Picture.
That’s not all! Both Changeling and Benjamin Button are also up for Best Original Score as well.
This is such fantastic news! Not only are they nominated, but they’re up for many of the major awards. I am bouncing off the walls this morning, and can’t wait to watch the Golden Globes this time!
