Pitt: It's a golden night for us

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt both had Golden Globe nominations

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie stepped out together at the 2012 Golden Globes and said they were delighted to both be nominated for awards.

The Hollywood couple chatted to Ryan Seacrest of E! on the red carpet, and Brad was quick to praise his partner's directorial debut on In The Land Of Blood And Honey, as well as welcome his own nod for Moneyball.

Angelina's movie is nominated in the Best Foreign Language Film category, and a proud Brad said of the nod: "I know how hard she worked on this film and what it means to her and the people of the country... A lot of people put everything into these films and for them to be understood and accepted this way, sure, it's a golden night for us."

Angelina, who looked stunning in a figure-hugging ivory gown with red detailing, said she had concerns that her film would not even be made.

"Well it's a very difficult subject matter, it's done in a foreign language, it's not with anybody that anybody knows, and these are difficult times and people often don't want to watch difficult movies in difficult times, which I understand. But it's important to revisit this history and we pushed forward and made it."

Angelina said it was more important to her that the film was well received in Bosnia than in Hollywood.

"The country is what mattered and the country received it well and that is everything to me - there is no greater reward."

Brad, nominated for an acting gong for his role in Moneyball, said he had been keen to get involved with the baseball movie because of its bigger themes.

"It's sort of about second chances, about if you're in this place in life and you feel like a failure, what is that, is that a true definition of value ... and it's questioning that."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
