Why Angelina Jolie 'Laughed' About Her Golden Globe Nomination
'The Tourist' star is up for best actress for her role in the film.
Apparently, Angelina Jolie -- who stars in the movie with Johnny Depp -- had the same reaction upon learning of her nomination.
Jolie was nominated for best performance by an actress in a comedy or musical for her role in the film -- which Sony Pictures sold as a romantic thriller.
Saying the acknowledgment was an honor, Jolie told the Associated Press: "We were laughing because it's the first time that I've been in the comedic category so it's new for me."
But it still managed to score a Golden Globe nom for best picture in the comedy/musical category. Depp also was nominated.
Jolie, Depp -- a double nominee for his role in Alice in Wonderland -- and director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck were in Germany on Tuesday for the film's Berlin premiere when they learned of their nominations.
