Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken hasn’t really been nominated for any awards, but that isn’t stopping the actress from feeling hurt and upset that her movie was snubbed at the 2015 Golden Globe Awards.
Jolie’s Unbroken was her baby and her second directorial effort, but it wasn’t included on the list of nominations – despite her many efforts.
Sources at the 2015 Golden Globes said that Angelina Jolie was “pained” that she and Unbroken were both snubbed. One source said, “Angelina’s hurt. She’s been upset that the film was overlooked.”
When asked why Jolie and her movie based on Louis Zamperini’s life was left out of the nominations, one member of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association member talked about the snub. The member revealed in an interview, “A few years ago, she would have been in.”
The spy on the inside revealed that the Foreign Press Association would have been wowed by Jolie’s star power in itself. This year, however, the voters on the inside said that the film didn’t measure up.
According to reports, Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken has gained some steam as we head into the Academy Awards. The Oscars are gearing up for their nominations on Thursday and we will see if Unbroken will garner any attention from the Academy.
Jolie screened her movie for a dying Louis Zamperini before his death in 2014 along with a private screening for the Pope. It starred Jack O’Connell in the lead role and could earn them both a nod – her for directing the movie and him as Best Actor. Jolie’s ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton recently revealed in an interview that he would rather hook up with Jennifer Aniston and it has been his lifelong goal.
Perhaps it isn’t Angelina Jolie or Unbroken’s year to win any awards? Despite that, we are sure that she will continue on with her mission as a director as she has said in the past that she would rather be behind the camera instead of in front of it.[Photo Credit: Gage Skidmore via Flickr]
