Washington (ANI): Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie has been
nominated for the Independent Spirit Award for her role in the 2007
film A Mighty Heart. The movie was co-produced by Brad Pitt and was
based on the life of slain American journalist Daniel Pearl.
Dawn Hudson of Film Independent, which gives the awards, after
the announcement said it was an achievement for the 32-year-old
actress to be so much in the role of Pearl's wife, Mariane. "She
could make any film she wants. It's a feat for such a movie star to
be so much in that role," People quoted Hudson, as saying.
Jolie's competition includes Sienna Miller for Interview, Ellen
Page for Juno, Parker Posey for Broken English, and Tang Wei for
Lust Caution. Other nominees included Cate Blanchett for I'm Not
There, Don Cheadle for Talk to Me and Philip Seymour Hoffman for
The Savages. Zach Braff and Lisa Kudrow, both past nominees of
Spirit Awards announced this year's nominees.
