What was the bigger blow to Angelina Jolie last week? The Sony email leaks or the fact that she didn’t get nominated for a Golden Globe when Jennifer Aniston did? Just some perspective now on the Sony emails – we all know now what Scott Rudin thinks of her and that even though he claimed he’d have no problem telling her to f-ck off over Cleopatra himself, he kinda tried to bully Amy Pascal into doing it for him. Full Story
