    If you've won for acting, you can't be nominated as director anymore, even if you already were in the past. It's never happened. Even guys who were nominated for directing, like Lionel Barrymore, Laurence Olivier, Tim Robbins, Roberto Benigni or George Clooney were never nominated for directing again after winning for acting. I was sure that Sean Penn would break this trend with Into the Wild, but he didn't.

    I say all that to say that Angelina Jolie will not be nominated for Best Director.
