Brad Pitt just won his first acting Oscar ever, after he was named Sunday as the Best Supporting Actor for his role in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
Pitt took home the first award of the night. “Wow,” he said, “This is really incredible.”
He got a little political, saying the 45 seconds he had for his acceptance speech was 45 more seconds than John Bolton had to speak at President Trump’s impeachment trial.
He thanked writer/director Quentin Tarantino and co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, telling Leo he’d “ride on your coattails any day.”
Pitt gave a shout out to stunt crews, adding, “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, ain’t that the truth?” Pitt ended his speech by dedicating the win to his kids, “I adore you.”
Brad Pitt hass been through a lot over the past several years — including a divorce, getting sober and reclaiming his clout professionally.
