Angelina Jolie, who picked up a third consecutive Golden Globe Sunday night, this time for “Girl, Interrupted,” has been named ShoWest’s supporting actress of the year.
Her performance as the charismatic but troubled Lisa in “Girl” has garnered Jolie more attention than any other role to date, with a recent supporting actress award from the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. in addition to the Golden Globe.
Prior to “Girl,” Jolie earned GG nods for two telefilms: TNT’s “George Wallace” and HBO’s “Gia.” Last fall, she toplined opposite Denzel Washington in “The Bone Collector,” her first starring role in a major feature.
Jolie will next be seen with Nicolas Cage in this summer’s Buena Vista release “Gone in Sixty Seconds,” and opposite Antonio Banderas in this fall’s “Waltz Into Darkness,” reuniting her with “Gia” helmer Michael Cristofer.
Jolie will receive her ShoWest nod at the convention’s March 9 awards ceremony in Las Vegas.
