Both are nominated for their starring roles in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Changeling, respectively. Button is up for a total of 13 nominations—the second highest of all time. Pitt is competing with Milk’s Sean Penn, The Visitor’s Richard Jenkins, and Mickey Rourke of The Wrestler for Best Actor. For Best Actress, Jolie is up against Anne Hathaway for Rachel Getting Married, Melissa Leo for Frozen River, Meryl Streep for Doubt and Kate Winslet for The Reader. Best Picture nominees are Button, Frost/Nixon, Milk, The Reader, and Slumdog Millionaire. Marisa Tomei, Amy Adams and Penelope Cruz are up for Supporting Actress; Heath Ledger, Josh Brolin, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Robert Downey Jr. are among nominees for Supporting Actor. So who got snubbed? Veteran actor Clint Eastwood and the newcomers from Slumdog.
