Angelina Jolie's Dad Jon Voight Says She Deserved an Oscar 2015 Nomination
“I wish she had [been nominated], because I think she deserved it,” the 76-year-old actor told reporters (via Vulture). “I think her direction is astounding, really astounding, and if she wasn’t my daughter, I’d still say, ‘I want to work for that one.’ She’s a great actor’s director — the pace of the film, the size of the film. Unbelievably difficult stuff that she accomplished.”
Those receiving nominations for Best Director this year include Alexandro G. Iñárritu for Birdman, Richard Linklater for Boyhood, Bennett Miller for Foxcatcher, Wes Anderson for The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Morten Tyldum for The Imitation Game.
