Angelina Jolie a comedic actress? A laughable concept to the Oscar-winning actress who was surprised by her Golden Globe nomination yesterday, which marks the first time she has ever been recognized in the comedy category!
Angelina, 35, told the Associated Press she and costar Johnny Depp, 47, “were laughing because it’s the first time that I’ve been in the comedic category so it’s new for me.”
The mother of six was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Comedy or Musical for her role as Elise opposite Johnny in the Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck-directed spy thriller, The Tourist.
Johnny was also nabbed a Best Actor nod for his role as Frank.
Angie already has three Golden Globes for dramatic performances and was at the Berlin premiere of The Tourist when she learned about her most recent nod!
Her competition? Annette Bening and Julianne Moore for their critically acclaimed roles in The Kids Are All Right, Love and Other Drugs star Anne Hathaway and Easy A‘s Emma Stone.
