Pitt beat out a Hall of Fame-level class of nominees that also included Joe Pesci, Tom Hanks, Anthony Hopkins, and Al Pacino.
The actor, who achieved a full awards-season sweep including the Best Supporting Actor Oscar at Sunday night's Academy Awards, has been hit with speculation that he'd had professional speechwriters penning his unusually candid and amusing speeches. "Thank you to the Academy for this honor of honors", he said, prior to getting a little political and attacking the recent impeachment hearings of President Trump.
"They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week", began the 56-year-old Pitt.
"Leo, I'll ride on your coattails any day, man", he said.
According to TMZ, the actor's decision to leave out his children from his acceptance speeches has been strategic as he felt calling them out on the podium would attract "unwanted attention". The Best Supporting Actor win was on his fourth acting nomination.
This is the actor and producer's second overall Academy Award, and his first for acting.
During his acceptance speech at the Oscars, Pitt indirectly confirmed that he's in good terms with Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox.
Brad Pitt has been one of Hollywood's biggest stars for what feels like forever now, constantly delivering incredible performances across a variety of genres. Brad also gave a shoutout to Mike Moh, who plays Bruce Lee in Once Upon a Time.in Hollywood, praising his work. And again, it's a community that I love, and the friends I've made for over 30 years mean a lot to me, really I feel the responsibility of that more than anything, more than, like, a victory lap. "I adore you. Thank you".
Usually a staple of the Hollywood award's show, Jen-An was a no show at the most glamorous event of the year, having attended the Golden Globes, and the Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG's) and building everyone's hopes she'd be along to slay the carpet, so where was she? I think of my friends who took me to the drive-in to see Butch and Sundance, and loaded my vehicle and moved me here. In the end, adults do the right thing.
She said: "I look at everyone who is trying to raise kids, and I go, 'How are we supposed to raise children outside of a bubble?"
