Angelina Jolie accepted a special honor on Saturday, when she became the youngest person to ever receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' fifth annual Governors Awards in La. The Oscar statuette was presented to acknowledge Angelina's achievements in activism, including her work for the United Nations and her film projects related to humanitarian issues: A Mighty Heart and In the Land of Blood and Honey. On the red carpet, she was joined by Brad Pitt, who wore Saint Laurent, along with their son Maddox, and she gave a sweet shout-out to her family during her acceptance speech. "My family, my love, your love and support make everything possible," she said. "Mad, and your brothers and sisters, there is no greater honor than being your mom." Last year's winner was Oprah Winfrey, and other past recipients include Elizabeth Taylor and Paul Newman. »
