ANGELINA Jolie felt “hurt” by Golden Globes snub. The 39-year-old actress was feeling “upset” on Sunday evening (11.01.15) as she missed the prestigious awards ceremony in Los Angeles, still reeling over ‘Unbroken’s exclusion from the extensive list of nominations.
A source revealed: “Angelina’s hurt. She’s been upset that the film was overlooked.”
The film – directed by the former actress – tells the story of Olympic athlete Louis “Louie” Zamperini who was taken prisoner in Japan during World War II, and follows his struggle to endure the difficult conditions.
A member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association revealed the movie would have made the shortlist in previous years due to “star power alone” but added the film wasn’t quite good enough to warrant a nomination this time.
The source told the New York Post’s Page Six column: “A few years ago, she would have been in.”
Despite being ignored by the awards – which crowned ‘Boyhood’ as Best Motion Picture (Drama) – the star is still hoping to receive praise at the Oscars, and was pleased to see the film’s protagonist, Jack O’Connell nominated for the Bafta Rising Star award.
The young actor – who is up against the likes of Margot Robbie and Shailene Woodley – recently revealed he is keen to bring the award “home” to the UK.
He said: “It’ll be a good night out, one way or the other, but I really want it. I want to really bring it home for us. Queen and country, and all of that.” – Bernama
