Angelina Jolie Honored as Performance of the Year Award at 2008 SBIFF


On Saturday, Feb. 2, at the Arlington Theatre in California, the 'Girl, Interrupted' star was celebrated as the Outstanding Performance of the Year Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Fest.

On Saturday, February 2, Angelina Jolie went to the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. On the film event held at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, California, the Academy Award-winning actress was honored with the Outstanding Performance of the Year Award for her portrayal of Mariane Pearl, the wife of slain journalist Daniel Pearl, in the film "A Mighty Heart".

Arriving on the red carpet, the 32-year-old actress, who is rumored to be pregnant with twins, confessed to Associated Press, "To be honest, I just heard that it was a beautiful festival, and one to take seriously, it is a very nice group that puts it on. So, that's usually how it is. They tell you, like, 'These ones are a bit silly, but these ones are a bit respectable and nice.'" Wearing a black blouse and loose-fitting floor-length skirt, the actress was accompanied by her long-term partner Brad Pitt.

Upon receiving the award from Clint Eastwood, the director of her upcoming drama "The Changeling", Jolie said on her acceptance speech, "Clint Eastwood? Don't get me started." She then continued, "I could talk forever about him. I could turn the whole evening into a Clint Eastwood evening. ... I think he's just a genuinely great guy. He's nice to everybody on set."

Aside from Jolie, the other honorees also include Casey Affleck, Julie Christie, Tommy Lee Jones, Ryan Gosling, James McAvoy, Ellen Page and Amy Ryan. The 2008 Santa Barbara International Film Festival was held on January 24 to February 3.
