"I am honored to be nominated by the Hollywood Foreign Press in a category with so many extraordinary women. What an amazing experience, having the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood on a film I care so deeply about," says the actress, who plays a mother whose son is kidnapped in the 1920s drama.
Jolie's beau, Brad Pitt, also earned an acting nod for his fantasy drama The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Says Pitt, "I am pleased to be nominated for this award and would like to also congratulate David [Fincher], Eric [Roth] and Alexandre [Desplat] on their nominations. We're all very proud of the film and thankful to the Hollywood Foreign Press for recognizing our work."
