While on the carpet, Angelina reflected on her first Academy Award for her role in 1999's Girl, Interrupted. Next year will mark the 20th anniversary of her win. "Maybe it's 20 years on in your life, and you kind of circle back to that girl," she said. "Your kids are teens. My son is closer to that age [than I am now]... and so all the things I love about that girl, I'm seeing in the spirit of them, and it's helping me return to myself a little bit."
