Angelina Jolie just got her second Oscar!
The actress was given a special humanitarian Oscar known as the Governor's Award last night in L.A. The other recipients included Steve Martin and Angela Lansbury.

And Angie wasn't there by herself. Her fiance Brad Pitt and oldest son Maddox Jolie-Pitt, 12, whom she adopted from Cambodia when he was just a baby, put on their tuxes and came out to support the 38-year-old star.
The Governor's Award honors humanitarian work, and Angelina has certainly stepped up to the plate in that department. She is a longtime United Nations Goodwill Ambassador who has traveled all over the world to meet with victims of conflicts and natural disasters. Her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, dealt with the Bosnian War.

This year, Angelina took part in another form of activism. In a New York Times op-ed article, she confessed to the world that she had undergone a voluntary double mastectomy because she was at an extremely high risk of breast cancer. (Her mom and aunt both succumbed to the disease.)
Though the Governor's Award isn't quite the same as an Academy Award, the actress has nothing to worry about: she already scored one of the golden trophies for her star turn in Girl, Interrupted.
