  • alicet

    Congratulations. It is so wonderful for both of them to be recognized for their artistry this year. VICKIE should be the one to just go away and s*ck it :)

  • Justme

    Congratulations. Wow, this is like what the 10th nomination each, saw both flicks, great acting, great movies. What a fantastic year 2008 was for them, birth of their twins, superb acting roles, nominations coming like crazy and they have a gorgeous family. Like Jason Alexander said at the Globes, “these 2 are already winners because they get to go home with each other”. I so agree!!

    Congrats. I love Angelina’s hair this colour, gorgeous. Brad looks so happy in this pic and in many others. When I saw him being interviewed on ET the other night at the Globes with Angelina, wow, the guy looks really happy, living the life he wanted, he’s a family man through and through. Good on him, life is too short to live it empty like he was and he seems really fulfilled now, more than ever.

    Good Afternoon JP fans

    Congrats to Brad and Angie on their latest nominations,
    Thanks for the new thread Jared.

    waving to the “girls” !

    senior, just read your email – maybe another secret mission in your future. :)

  • an oldie

    I saw Changeling for the second time yesterday. It’s a powerful movie. Clint Eastwood deserves a nomination for Best Director, and Angelina for Best Actress. The whole cast did a great job. Angelina deserves an Oscar nomination this year. She was robbed for her role in AMH. TCCOBB deserves Best Picture Award.

  • julianna marie

    I think TCCOBB is overrated and overhyped- I think Ebert nailed it when he stated that this film leaves you not caring about these characters and left with a whole bunch of questions regarding the creative process of the story. I felt the same way when I walked away from the theater. While BAFTA is buzzing for it, I am hoping the Academy will give a more deserving film some nods (like Gran Torino for example).

    Personally, I liked Babel and A Mighty Heart better than these films. If an Eastwood film deserves recognition, then it should be Gran Torino instead of Changeling. Amazing performance by Clint and beautiful film!!

    But congrats to Brad and Angelina for the nods (even if I disagree with the various awards shows) :-)

  • Sue

    Yay, this is amazing. Congrats and god bless them. <3

  • jay

    They won’t win there either. Atleast is won’t hurt as bad.

  • Not impressed by JA

    Congrats Brad and Angie.
    Haters pain are my joy. Suck it aging bimbo turned prostitute lovers ! Maybe your retarded turning 40 idole will get a nom in those shady awards for the p*rn industry.

    This is for the selective A list people with an international appeal. The ones who are not only in the great salon but in the royal suite. Maniston and her clique are just rats caught in the basement !

    We will never get enuf of these beautiful duo!

    I like her hair this color too. I like her soft side, which I think is the real her. That’s why Brad can’t get enough of her.

  • smellycat

    Quoting the ever-talented Ms. Tina Fey, ‘Suck it!”

  • qarla

    Brad is so hot!!!!!

  • debra77

    I am so happy for this news.. I hope the next award show gives some love to TCCOBB.. the movie should win something.. .Everything so far has been very one sides. I know a lot of people are not planning on tuning in to the rest of the shows if it is going to be so predictable. . It is also great for MILK and Doubt.. other worthy films.. I don’t know if Brad or Angie have ever been nominated for a BAFTA.. If it is their first.. BRAVO.. I like Leo a great deal, but I don’t think this was his best performance.. I just did not buy into him as her husband.. I don’t know.. There was not a lot of chemistry between them, and I even felt that Brad had more chemistry with Tilda then Cate.. But I have to say BRAVO for the Brange.. what a great year this has been for then.. personally and professionally..

    For the people coming here to be negative; you are talking to deaf ears.. Just like it has been a big deal that Kate did not win a GG, it is the same for Angie and the BAFTA… This is just as note worthy. Whether you like her or not, she is a good actress.. respected, and highly sought after.. She does not work a great deal leaving one (me) to wonder about the amount of scripts she has turned down.. There must be tons of roles offered to her.. If she was the great attention seeker many of you claim she and Brad to be, we would see them all the time. But we do not see them until or unless they are promoting a film.. That is why all the media attention when they do surface.. They are very private people. So the small amount of time we see them is elevated to the extreme.. Everyone wants to get a piece of the action before they go into hiding for time. This is the truth. No one saw them over the holiday, No one has seen them since going back to Berlin.. Attention whores.. I think not.. perhaps you are confusing them with others…

    Thanks for the thread JJ!
    Again, congrats to the most powerful couple in Hollywood!!!
    They both had an amazing year! birth of the twins and now with all accolades!!! We should enjoy these extraodinary times because after all these awards are over, they will be out of public eyes for a while!!!
    For me personally, I want to see how the twins look like!!! They are 6 months old now!! They are at that age crawling all over the house. It must be chaotic in their household but full of love nonetheless!!!!

    Thanks you guli for posting those pics.

    Angie got her looks from her mother. Marcheline was gorgeous.

  • bdj

    Congrats to BP and AJ on their nominations. Changeling is an excellent film and Eastwood did an amazing job directing and recreating the time frame of the film. AJ gave an awesome performance in Changeling and carried the entire film. Benjamin Button is a beautiful and touching film. It is deserving of its recognition. There are many films made each year and to stand out with critical acclaim is a major accomplishment. Benjamin Button is doing great at the box office as well as critically. BP gave two great performances in BB and Burn After Reading. Congrats to BP, AJ, Eastwood, Fincher and all the nominees. It is all good.
