Poor Angelina Jolie. The Oscar-winner got snubbed again this award show season. The 2015 Oscars nominations showed no love for Angie in the Best Director category.
Talk about a snub! When the 2015 Oscar nominations were announced on Jan. 15, Angelina Jolie’s name was not called as one of the nominees. Despite her incredible directing work in Unbroken, the Oscar-winner was one of the biggest names to not get a nomination.
Angelina Jolie’s Oscar Nomination: Snubbed For Best Director
There you have it, folks.
Instead of Angie, Birdman’s Alejandro Iñárritu, Boyhood’s Richard Linklater, Foxcatcher’s Bennett Miller, The Grand Budapest Hotel’s Wes Anderson and The Imitation Game’s Morten Tyldum got nominations.
The 2015 Golden Globes famously snubbed the actress/director for Best Director, and we thought the Academy would recognize her for her work on the Louis Zamperini biopic. Angelina got no such luck. This would have been her first nomination for Best Director.
You know it’s a bad day when both Angelina and Jennifer Aniston get snubbed by the Oscars. Jen didn’t get a Best Actress nod for her critically-acclaimed role in Cake.
Oscar Nominations 2015: Emma Stone & More
Even though Angie didn’t get a nomination, there were plenty of our other favorite actors and actresses who snagged a nod.
Emma Stone scored her first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Birdman. Meryl Streep, Laura Dern, Patricia Arquette and Keira Knightley also scored nominations.
Bradley Cooper didn’t get a Golden Globe nomination for his riveting work in American Sniper, but managed to secure a Best Actor nod for the Oscars. Coming out of nowhere, Marion Cotillard earned her second nomination for Two Days One Night.
The Oscars will air on Feb. 22. Neil Patrick Harris is hosting.
